    Default Did Scott Walker and the Kochs overplay their hand in Wisconsin?

    With 100,000 protesters rallying in Madison,Wisconsin this past Saturday to protest the union-busting tactics ofRepublican Gov.Scott Walker, the cracks may already be showing in the great tea party takeover of government.
    Public opinion polls show a majority ofAmericans didn’t like Walker’s tactics in Wisconsin. Sarah Palin‘s popularity is dropping while nutcases from the rabid right like Michelle Bachmann makes voters who fell for their “we’re gonna change things in Washington” line regret their decision last November.
    Which creates a fascinating politicial conundrum: Voters aren’t happy with Obama and the Demorats, they don’t care much for Republicans and now they are having second thoughts about all those tea party “reformers” they voted into office.
    Oh, the fickle American voter.
    The problem, of course, is that the typical American voter is just plain fed up with government, politics and the people they elect to office.. The dissatisfaction crosses party lines. Democrats aren’t happy with Obama, Republicans wonder what happened to their party and the tea baggers realized they drank a witch’s brew.
    Meanwhile, theKoch brothers sit in their palatial offices back in Wichita, high-fiving each other because all they disarray appears to be playing right into their hands to seize control of theAmerican government for their own profiteering.
    But the Kochs and the conservatives and the tea baggers may have overplayed their hand. With a growing number of voters already starting to show signs of buyer’s remorse and excesses like Scott Walker re-energizing the Democratic union base, the voter anger in 2012 just might be directed at them.
    When a governor’s action brings 100,000 protesters to a state capital, those who deal in using voter anger to their advantage start to take notice.
    The Kochs are used to operating in secret but their involvement in the tea party movement and debacles like Wisconsin have brought them into the public eye and they can’t stand public scrutiny.
    As owners of one of the largest privately-held conglomerates in the world, they aren’t used to having to answer to anyone but themselves. That could change because of Wisconsin and — if it does — it is change that is long overdue.
    Their involvement and agenda are out in the open now and a growing number of Americans realize that the phony grassroots operation called the tea party is nothing more than a sham organization fronting for two billionaires who are nothing more than modern-day robber barons who want absolute control of the American government.

    There are lots of good, well-meaning people who got swept up in what appreared to be a good thing.....but the above passage speaks to the organization and goals of the corporate backers of the TP. Worth repeating.

    RP, you have a habit of copy/pasting articles from other authors and even though you show a link, you fail to quote that author, or sometimes YOUR header doesnt match the author's premise....

    I could care less what other authors write and their opinions, but stop trying to pass them off as YOUR opinions or your writings.....it's real simple , just add quotation marks around the entire article so we can see that the article was written by a third party...and if you agree with the article ,then state that claim

    because you are basically plagiarizing someone else work without giving proper credit

    Perhaps you should consider your source who by his own admission has on numerous times recanted or withdrawn articles as being untrue.

    Along with the article, I posted a link to the whole article written therefore I am not plagiarizing anything.

    More childish attacks from RK et al. I wish those guys would grow up some day.

    The article was referenced and linked. More than one of the hypocrits here is capable of.

    Have a nice day guys, and try to stay on topic. Your attacks are really getting old.
