    And this may well be why Obama doesn't want to campaign on behalf of Barrett like he did the last time.

    “Scott Walker is talking about his record. He’s talking about that the fact that his reforms are working, that people are getting back to work, that businesses are coming in,” Priebus said. “You can’t keep operating a government that spends more money than it takes in.”

    Walker is facing off against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) in his recall challenge. The Wisconsin governor become a national figure last year after he confronted unions by pushing through legislation that limited collective bargaining rights for public workers.

    Walker’s campaign has argued that the governor created jobs in the state and that he was right to take tough action against public workers. The RNC chairman said the president can’t talk about his record like Walker can.

    We'll know shortly and hopefully he (Walker) can pull this out.

    "It should surprise no one that I'm opposed to the recall of Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor whose fate will be decided Tuesday. But that's only in part because I support what he's been trying to do in the Badger State. I'm also against recalls as a matter of principle.

    In 2003, I was one of the few conservatives opposed to the recall of Gray Davis, arguably the worst California governor in modern memory."

    You had some company Jonah. Me too.

    Even if he pulls it out, he still has the "John Doe" investigation hanging over his head. So far there have been six indictments, 15 felony charges and two convictions of Walker's closest aides as a result of the investigation. Also, 13 people in his inner circle have been granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for their testimony. Hmmmm...I wonder who this "John Doe" could be?

    Looking at all the leftwing blogging on the 2 year old investigation over the past 24-48 hours, this just reeks of desperation. It's something I'd be curious in following but if this turns out to be much ado over nothing, it will be yet another example of how corrupt and complicit some members of the press are not to mention the echo chambers on the left in their attempts at defaming anyone who disagrees with them in any way possible.

    If you want to argue with facts, go ahead, knock yourself out. The "complicit" press is just reporting the news. You don't think the the facts of the investigation I listed qualify as newsworthy? Damn right, we're pulling out all the stops and if that "reeks of desperation" to you, take a big, deep breath.

    What are the facts to argue about? There's few details as to the specifics of the investigation and the media that is reporting on the issue is focused on innuendo and what's implied. This is, for instance, a different standard than what they used with John Edwards for example. So yes, it does reek of desperation especially given the timing of what doesn't seem to be news. It's also indicative of why there is such low trust of journalists.

    Sorry, you lost me at John Edwards. I haven't been following his case because I've always thought he was a sleazy turd.

    The john doe investigation is going to be a big nothing. It was just a political tool used by the dems for this recall. lol, what the dems fail to say is Walker asked for it and it is being done. All tools being used by the dems to avoid the reson for the recall in the first place.

    BECAUSE HIS REFORMS ARE WORKING!!
