Who? Mitchell is the head of the state Firefighter's Union and the most recent heart-throb of the left for his fiery unionist anti-Walker speeches. He now says he is seriously thinking of running for governor in a recall election against Scott Walker. There are a few problems with that... foremost is the "thank you" letter that Mitchell wrote to Walker earlier this year. Mitchell's Letter To Governor Walker:
A new poll from Public Policy Polling ( a Dem outfit) suggests that (a) voters are losing their taste for recalling Scott walker, (b) independents are moving toward Walker; (c) Walker leads any potential Dem candidate except Feingold, who isn't running.
According to aides familiar with his planned remarks to the Heritage Foundation Wednesday, Paul Ryan will challenge President Obama to step away from the "politics of division, pitting Americans against each other, preying on the emotions of fear and envy".
A new reports says that state have a combined debt of $4 trillion (in addition to the federal debt), largely made up of unfunded pension and benefit liabilities. Obviously a reason to recall Governor walker, before other politicians actually try to fix the problem.
