Is this typical reaction when Dems, Liberals, and Progressives loose?

    A woman slaps Scott Walker's opponent, Tom Barret, for conceding.

    A (Dem) man(?) sobs, saying "Democracy died tonight."

    Angry libs flood Twitter with Scott Walker death threats after Wisconsin recall defeat.

    Is this what we have to look forward to and worse when Obama looses this November?

    Is this the typical reaction of Dems, Liberals, and Progressives when they loose?

      Someone has forgotten what happened after the Obama election amongst many conservatives tongue

      When election results occur that will make the lives of people allready struggling even harder it's hardly surprising that there will be anger and resentment is it? This was always going to be a very charged election considering it was are recall and how polarized the state is.

        We did away with collective bargaining here in Tennessee at about the same time WI did. We had a couple of small protest but nothing to hardly mention. Certainly not death threats against our Governor like what happened last night. See for yourself.

        Makes one wonder what Dems, Liberals, and Progressives will do on a national level when Obama looses.

        Really? Really/ What conservative slapped who when Obama got elected?
        Remember this is the man who was put forth as a savior. There were people "fainting" at his campaign rallies. There were videos produced with people singing worship songs to him. Now they are all mad at him.

        Really man? Really?

        Even if I had a spare $50, I wouldn't take that bet. I like surer bets than that. Like whether or not my Ex-wife knows her butt from a hole in the ground. You know, something I know I'll win.

        It's anybody's guess who'll win, Josak. But, if last night's election in WI is any indication, I would suggest you not count your chickens until they hatch.  We'll see come November.

          I think when an individual is held up to be a messiah, there is only one way their approval can move.  I also believe Democrats in general will not have a difficult time accepting a Romney win.  Walker is a tad more conservative then Romney.

            I'm not concerned about the ones who'll accept a Romney win. Some will with nothing more than a grumble or two. I wonder about the left-wing, liberal and progressive nut jobs that will go off when their "messiah" looses - ie. the idiots that were crying and fainting during his last campaign. Wait, lets back up. His first campaign since he's never stopped campaigning.

      Yes, absolutely. When Romney wins in a landslide election, Obama supporters will resort to every distasteful activity imaginable, unlike 2008 McCain supporters who have gracefully supported the elected president since he was sworn in. As usual, your instincts are 100% spot on.

            I know Obama doesn't have the answer, because the answer doesn't lay with government. It lays with the individual person being responsible about their rights and life.
            It will be taken in stride, just like any other election.

            However, having said that- I wouldn't mind having a candidate that has a mixture of all three- Ron Paul, Romney and Obama. Unfortunately, there's not one.

              We need a president who'll say, "Get off your lazy butt and do it yourself." Kinda like Mom and Dad use to say to me a few decades ago, instilling a strong work ethic and how to take responsibility for myself.

              Unfortunately, again, that person either wouldn't stand up to the media scrutiny, is smart enough not to allow it, or both.

                Of course. However, there are a percentage of the people who are homeless choose to be homeless because attempting to gain equal rights and equality has proven that many other citizens don't mind what is happening or just don't see it, or just don't understand rights or freedom.
                Until true equality and equal rights happens, you're only going to watch the work ethic of people get worse. And, that's what government wants. Government wants people to be dependent on it, it requires it.

            "Let me add some unbidden (and probably unwelcome) praise for Ted Kennedy to Harold Meyerson's post. Though it may not be featured in the Ken Burns video tonight, the last lion of liberalism is the main reason for passage of No Child Left Behind education reform and the Medicare prescription drug benefit -- the main domestic legacies of the Bush administration. He was also a major ally in President Bush's attempt to pass comprehensive immigration reform, arguing, "It's a defining issue about the kind of country we are. It's a moral issue. It's how we treat people."

            Few are willing to honor these achievements. Conservatives generally repudiate them as costly (Medicare) and inappropriately liberal (NCLB and immigration reform). Liberals tend to ignore any accomplishment tainted by Bush's support. But millions of poor seniors still get their prescriptions every month pretty much for free, thanks to Bush and Kennedy.

            Kennedy has often been a determined, even ferocious, partisan. But he is primarily a legislator -- actually an increasingly rare calling in the legislature. He has never adopted the viewpoint that a partisan victory is preferable to an actual accomplishment. And that is worthy of praise."

    OK...I'll do it your way...you twisted my arm!!

    You do know that Walker is being investigated for corruption and embezzling, right? He's using campaign money to fund a legal defense team. He's a garden variety "rough boy"...not really rough, but willing to lie, cheat and steal.

    Romney, on the other hand, is a real rough boy. Oh, he doesn't get HIS hands dirty, but he engineers the dirt. You don't have money stashed all over the world by being mr. honest nice guy...do you honestly not know that?

    I suggest you look up Cofer Black and Detachment 88...you may find why he was Mitt'sters military advisor. May even give you clues about what Mitt has in mind for "the little people" here!

    Then go here:

    neither Scott Brown nor Mitt Romney called this scoundrel out. Not a word.

    Oh--and I have it on very good authority that Walker is actually a citizen of another country, and that Mitt is hiding several other wives.
    They both hate children and animals, and have no allegiance to this country.

            Occupy is against wall street and greed.....if you are for either--they will call you out. But they do not go around sporting guns, or carrying threatening signs like the tea party does.

            You have your threatening crowds mixed up. Why, just the other day, a talk-radio head called for armed revolution if Romney isn't elected. What do you have to say to that?

    1. Scott Walker won that recall mostly because people didn't think a recall was appropriate in that situation.

    2. Republican seats were eroded in the Wisconsin legislature.

    3. Obama is going to win in November. This is all pretty much a moot point.

    FWIW, anyone who votes for Romney because he is against gay marriage or because he promises to repeal Obamacare needs to re-evaluate the decision. Anyone who votes for Romney because they honestly believe that Obama has done nothing for the country in the last 3+ years needs to go back to see what has actually happened.

        Hi Poolman, I am going to ask for some trust on this one, we have talked many times before and you know I always have a multitude of independent links to back my statements I don't have my computer with me however so so links on this one (maybe one or two grabbed off the internet but not my usual research) anyway since the election of Obama, unemployment has dropped (yes by the same scale as used under Bush) consumer confidence has grown by 8 percent, don't ask don't tell was repealed (yeah I know not everyone thinks this a good thing but I have no time for homophobes), GDP has grown, he has ended one war and wound down another and the economy has grown.

          Josak, nice to see you again.  I take your word for these things and you do your homework well.  My biggest concern has been the inability to get a grip on the runaway spending and outrageous waste we all are aware of.  Things like "don't ask don't tell" only apply to a small percentage of our population.  I know our President is not totally in control of the spending.  He has 535 other elected officials helping him drain the tax payer coffers.  Some of the tax payer money he invested in companies like Solyndra were very questionable.  I just have not seen a great many positive moves by this president that were not directed toward one or the other special interest groups.  The things you cited were of benefit to all our citizens.  Some things are difficult or impossible to measure whether they be considered good or bad.

            This is what I cant stand about the GOP. Everything a Republican does is for the benefit of the country without question.

            However, everything the Democrats do is evil and repugnant. Obama hasn't done anything, but Bush did so much for us. He was a shining example of how a president should behave. Bush never vacationed and did everything he could to bring down the deficit.

            This is why I can't believe anyone takes the GOP seriously.

              It's the same with the bin Laden mission.  I have no doubt in my mind that if something had gone wrong, it would be Obama's fault from beginning to end:  wrong timing, wrong plan, wrong wrong wrong.

    I'll repeat part of it for you.
    First, a little background:

    Since Obama announced, he has been subject to dirty lie campaigns, smears on his person, and smears on people he knew...if only to say hello! So--since Obama is attacked for his childhood, his parents, his preacher, his church,and the people he knows, here's a little friend of Mittens you may want to know about:
    Dirty cop and Tea Bagger, friend to both Romney and Scott Brown: Jeff Perry.

    "In 1991, Officer Scott Flanagan claimed to be searching for drugs when he stuck his hand down a 14-year-old girl’s underpants. Perry was the supervising officer on scene. The official complaint alleges Perry “observed the strip search” but “did nothing to protect her.” Perry, for his part, claimed that “it did not occur in my presence, and I have no knowledge of it,’ , the Boston Globe reports.

    In the second incident, in 1992, purportedly at Flanagan’s request, Perry accompanied him to a 16-year-old girl’s house. There, her parents later testified, Perry informed them that he and Flanagan had searched her for drugs, and added “oh, yeah, by the way, [she] pulled her pants down for us.”

    Now--you may not have daughters, but if some creep cop tells ME my daughter pulled her pans down for him....he's getting a punch in the nose.

    Also Cofer Black was his military advisor in his last go-round for prez.(or gvr--don' remember)
    Heard about him back some years, when he was running Detachment 88 in Myanmar.
    Military Occupation.

    Of course, you won't care, because to some-- Mitt blows golden snots, but as far as these kind of people running this country....oh hecks no.
