    Well with the Milwaukee voted so divided, I wonder just who has the biggest chance of winning.

    MAIG is simply someone's pet for making boomsticks illegal.... Anyway, I'm voting for Scott Walker. Smart guy, made a lot of promises in the wake of the Ament scandal and came through from what I saw. A real moderate, not really much right OR left. I like that...

    These questions were posed to all candidates. All candidates were personally invited to come to the forum and answer these questions. Only 1 responded.

    So to answer you question as to whether or not Walker is "Pro Gun", yes probably when it is convenient for him to capture some votes. Otherwise, he refused to come to the forum and answer the questions.

    IMHO, if you really believe in something then why not step up to the plate and let it be known.

    With his reaction to the invite and the fact that he never answered the questions both in and out of the forum. I would have to find him "Guilty" of being an Anti!

    He isn't anti if that's what you mean. He would sign a shall issue concealed carry law. Guns aren't really my biggest issue... Not having Tom Barret is my number one concern.... He scares me. He gets elected, you can kiss any chance of reconciling the budget goodbye.

    Mark Todd scares me too. WAY too far to the right. Walker tends to hang out in the middle.

    Obama's more moderate history was why I voted for him. McCain had gone too far to the right in past years. He used to be my favorite Republican, but alas, he spoiled himself. And then there's Palin... Don't even get me started.

    History? Has actually ever cast a vote where his standing on an issue can be measured? I think that he is far from being a moderate!

    Well, he indicated himself in his past voting histories to be more moderate than he has been in office. Turns out he's farther left than I originally anticipated.

    Well, he indicated himself in his past voting histories to be even morecommunist and anti-rightsthat he hasindicated before he wasin office. Turns out he's communist than I originally anticipated.
    ^^^ Fixed it for you^^^

    I am dumbfounded that anyone who cherishes the 2A or believes that we have rights to defend ourselves against criminals would ever vote for this lying communist.

    Past voting histories??????? Did you even research his past voting history?

    Wow doug, The bitter cold got feeling a little mean this morning?

    If his IQ was equal to the temperature here right now, it would have a minus sign in front of it!! Damn it is cold out!! The pooches didn't even want to stay out for longer than needed.

    Let me put it this way: I am not a one issue voter. I am what I am. There are bigger issues to me than guns, like campaign reform, health care, getting the hell out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Doug, kiss my ass. You're bitter that you are old and decrepit and your message isn't being heard by people with an IQ more than one. Go take your Cialis and stick it in an electrical socket.

    Yeah, there is an understatement. To be fair, you took his word for it. His voting history is anything but moderate. He is not at all a moderate and like the others, I can't believe anyone who is truly pro-gun would vote for Obama.

    Maybe you aren't a one issue voter. Either am I, but I fail to see any issue Obama is right on.

    Obama is the most radical, ultra left wing president this country has ever seen, by far. Many of us saw it before the election so nothing he is doing now is surprising. Those of you who didn't see it, didn't look. Maybe that should be a warning to you on the other issues you like about him.

    Congress makes the laws. We have the best congress the oil industry, drug industry, insurance industry and banking industry can buy.

    I do.

    Government is a contrivance of human wisdom to provide for human wants. People have the right to expect that these wants will be provided for by this wisdom.
    (cough cough, GAG)

    Yeah . . . they sure are wise aren't they?

    I wouldn't be surprised if I'm older than you. And yes, I do remember Jimmy Carter.

    Obama is worse than Carter by a mile and that is saying something. Up until January of 2009, Carter was the worst president we've ever had. But Carter didn't try to take over the automobile industry, insurance industry, health care, and appoint czars to multiple positions who are not accountable to the American people. And the list goes on and on.

    There is little doubt that Obama will prove to be the worst and most destructive president this country has seen. That is unless of course you are one who believes in a socialist state. Then you will most likely love him. If you are naive and uniformed, you'll probably love him also.

    I think you're missing a few details. Bush started the bailouts with AIG and he appointed more "czars" than Obama has(although czar is not a technical position, it's an informal term; I've pointed this out before).

    Plus, the poll numbers show his approval rating to be dropping, mostly because people don't see him as a force of change but instead he is showing himself to be much of the same garbage we've seen in the past, plus some.

    I was pro McCain in the past but his, uh, let's say temporary insanity, during the recent campaign turned me off. I did vote for Obama and frankly he has done nothing yet that he promised (whoa surprise! politicians lie?) but it would not follow to say that if Obama is no good, McCain would have been. I suspect both would be looked upon unfavorably at the moment.

    Not that it matters, but there should have been NO bailouts whatsoever, starting with Bush's bailout of AIG. The healthcare I was on the fence (I didn't know enough details) until I read that people would be fined for not buying insurance. Completely ridiculous.

    You may be correct that Obama will turn out to be the worst President but only time will tell. As of yet, he's done little except maintain the status quo.

    And if it makes any difference, I was a staunch Bush supporter in 2000. I also flew to D.C. to see Reagan in State(and voted for him back in the day), so I'm not anti-Republican, just keeping it real.

    Could have been worse. Could have been Hillary, then we could have really kissed our guns goodbye. Can't you just imagine Hillary as president and "Slick Willie" as Attorney General.

    How many of Obama's appointments had to go back and repay their taxes they never had paid for the past 5-6 years or whatever it was. Amazing at how irresposible some of those appointments are.
