I assume you're talking about shrub's reign of terror as president. You should look at what he did as governor of Texas. He repeated it as president. I tried to tell them back then.

I've asked this many times before but what does the world look like to the Walker/Bushes of the world if they got everything they wanted, if it all went their way.
They must have some "vision", want some result. All I see is the breakdown of democracy and the ruination of the middle class. When that happens, at least what history tells us, the disenfranchised come up with horrible devices for getting rid of the powerful.

Per FightingBob this a.m. Koch Bros spending $607K on advertising to slam the WI 14 (state dems who fled the state to stop the budget bill--the physical filibuster).
Best democracy money can buy:

"Watch this drive"

They don't have a vision for the world. A character trait of all Republicans is self-interest. They don't see anything beyond their own welfare. They simply do not care about other people or the greater good. That's what makes them Republicans. So, their vision reaches no further than their bank account. That's it. They don't think like progressives and we should stop trying to ascribe the traits we have to them.

Bbbbbbbut that was last time. It is gonna be different this time. Forget that Poppy Bush (double entendre intended) quoted the definition of insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Another question I'd like to see asked. As Texas is such a bastion of the policies that are gonna make us better. And Texas is oil rich (seen as a source of income for the state). How come the CNN article yesterday (it may have been an offsite link) which provided the amount each state was financially in the hole, put Texas at near, if not at, the top ?

that is avery scary vision.

i hope walker tars all of the republikkkan governors w/ his stupidity.
