Democrats fail to tell you that they have insanely wealth donors in corporate America as well. George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, just about every Sillywood and rock celebrity, liberal foundations with billions in trusts funds (e.g., Tides, Ford, Heinz, etc.), the MSM provides Democrats free cheerleading and excuses for their failures while excoriating conservatives, and they have countless other resources. In the news today is a story about Obama jetting around the world to meet with insanely wealthy corporate donors to collect about 4 million dollars. Travel paid by taxpayers. How is that any different that conservatives calling on similar resources? It seems to me that the Democrats simply don't like level playing field.

Frederick 78 I think you're exactly right. Now that Obama doesn't think he's going to collect his billion dollars, it's "just not fair" that those Republicans are collecting money. Go figure . . .

First, a mea culpa: I'm several weeks late to this story, but it's so significant that I figured I'd adopt a "better late than never" approach and bring this to your attention anyway:

Wisconsin membership in the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees - the state's second-largest public-sector union after the National Education Association, which represents teachers - fell to 28,745 in February from 62,818 in March 2011, according to a person who has viewed Afscme's figures. A spokesman for Afscme declined to comment. Much of that...
