Election 2014

Obama Campaigns in Wisconsin Against Walker

A rare election appearance

|

President Barack Obama is kicking off a weeklong, six-state campaign spree with a visit to Wisconsin.

Obama will attend a rally at a Milwaukee high school Tuesday for Mary Burke, the Democrat trying to oust Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Defeating Walker, a potential 2016 presidential contender, would be a major coup for Democrats.

The president has been a rare sight on the campaign trail this year, where his low approval ratings make him a potential liability for his party. But in states like Wisconsin, Democrats are hoping high turnout among die-hard Obama supporters will put them over the top in hard-fought races for governor.

  1. The first time I ever saw a photo of Mary Burke, I said to my buddy “I bet she’s unmarried and childless”. BING. Correct.

    But that didn’t stop her from somehow gettin’ on the school board in Madison. LOL.

    She’s toast.

  2. Now that the Douchebag in Chief has shown up there, I expect Walker to increase his lead by several points. He’s killing all the democrats in his wake everywhere he goes.

  3. Obama will attend a rally at a Milwaukee high school Tuesday for Mary Burke, the Democrat trying to oust Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Defeating Walker, a potential 2016 presidential contender, would be a major coup for Democrats.

    And, if the move backfires, Obama will be as popular in official Democrat circles as Rush Limbaugh with ebola.

  4. I’m no fan of walker in general (i live in madison) but every time i see a dumbass moonbeam with a “recall walker” sticker STILL on their prius i get a twinkle in my eye
