I am amazed at how many people are following this blog already. (Albeit quietly) We obviously struck a tone and provided something that people were seeking.
So, with that said, we’ve created a new blog so that we can continue with our 2nd goal of electing Scott Walker as our next Governor.
We hope you will visit us as we get ScottForGov.com up and running. Join us as we expose the lies and distortions spread about him, show the true colors of Scott’s opponents and tell you why Scott Walker should be our next Governor.
We’re 50% done with our goal. Help us achieve the rest!

We at RetireDoyle.com would like to claim victory for accomplishing this goal in 2 1/2 weeks!!! Never in our wildest imaginations did we think we could retire Jim Doyle in such a short period of time. Others have tried, for many years...but we have delivered.
Politico.com was the first to break the story:
Gov. Jim Doyle won't seek re-election
Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle has told associates he will announce this week that he won’t seek a third term in 2010, POLITICO has learned.
U.S. Rep. Tom Petri said Friday he is endorsing Scott Walker in the 2010 race for governor.
"Since Scott took the reins of county government in 2002, he has slashed the county debt by over 10 percent and reduced the taxpayer-funded work forceby more than 20 percent. That is exactly the kind of leadership Wisconsin needs to recover from Gov. Doyle's recklessness," Petri, R-Fond du Lac, said in a press release.
I guess to have served with Mark Neumann in Congress is to endorse Scott Walker as Governor. Ouch, that has to hurt.
Our Previous post on Doyle's Wood County DA Dilemma
Madison,WI – After three recent judicial appointments in Dane County went to the three highest contributors to Jim Doyle’s reelection efforts, it is becoming clear why Wood County does not yet have a new DA.
Someone needs to make a campaign donation ASAP.
“Over twenty people applied for circuit judge in Dane County and the top three Doyle contributors got the jobs. Now its revealed Doyle hired an individual who wasn’t even licensed to practice law in Wisconsin to be his Chief Legal Counsel…but she did give him $350 just before getting the job,” said Mark Jefferson, Executive Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “It’s looking like Doyle has been waiting for a campaign check before he’s willing to make anyone DA in Wood County.”
Officials in Wood County have been concerned for weeks over the vacant DA position and the potential threat to public safety in the area. However, they’ve been met with indifference in the Governor’s office.
“Wisconsin deserves better than what appears to be pay-to-play tactics from their Governor, and Wood County deserves a qualified District Attorney,” Jefferson said. “It’s time for the Governor to put campaign contributions aside and do what’s right for the people of Wood County and all of Wisconsin.”

Steve Schultz should be fired. Absent that, he should be removed from ANY reporting that has to do with County or State Government!!!
- A January 23rd email from DHS Communications Director Seth Boeffli telling Department of Administration spokesperson Linda Barth: “We also have a sympathetic reporter at the MJS (Steve Schultze) and we were thinking about bringing him in early so he can get everything from us early on an embargoed basis.”
- A string of emails from February 6th discusses Walker’s criticism of DHS for failing to give him notice of their plans and references a request Schulze made for the “paper trail” to prove Walker wrong.
- An email exchange between top DHS officials on February 5th and 6th characterize conservative columnist Patrick McIlheran’s piece on the issue as, “straight up lies,” and “ridiculously one-sided,” while Doyle’s DHS Secretary Karen Timberlake asks if there is “anything to be done about McIlheran.”
It's only going to get worse folks. They are afraid of Scott Walker and will pull out all the stops.
The Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state's powerful teachers union, spent the most, at just more than $1 million. The union won several victories in the state budget, including the elimination of caps on raises for teachers during contract negotiations.
The limits on teacher raises had been in place for years to hold down property taxes but the union, Gov. Jim Doyle and the Democratic-controlled Legislature said they were unfair.
