1. Let's make this the official comments site!

I hope Barrett goes over well -- it could make all the difference.

Watch on CSPAN on TV if you can -- leave the link for those who HAVE to use it!

14. ROUND FOUR: JOB NUMBERS

Barrett: Based on Walker's numbers, WI has lost more jobs than any state, changed how the job loss is counted. Numbers have never been verified.

Walker: Our reforms are working, based on 3.5 per cent of employers. Required to be submitted by law, but that doesn't equal verification. Ragging on Milwaukee poorest city -- but Milwaukee is part of Wisconsin, isn't it?

I give this round to BARRETT.

19. ROUND EIGHT: MINING/ENVIRONMENT

Walker: Private/Government partnership, could create jobs

EVEN.

15. ROUND FIVE: Tax increases

Walker: Wants to keep taxes as they are, property taxes have gone down, tax incentives...

Barrett: Milwaukee unemployment went up even higher when Walker was Country Executive and approved budget. Homestead act is a tax increase that hits seniors on fixed income. Budget surplus, if it exists, by using credit card that future generations will have to pay for.

KNOCKDOWN BARRETT!

16. ROUND SIX: Out of state contributions

Barrett: 90 percent of his contributions within states. Walkers 60-70 per cent out of state. What makes you think they care? Ideological civil war. WI is to be the prototype for the Tea Party state.

Walker: Millions spent trying to knock out six Republicans, money from the Democrat Governors Association. He's trying to put power back into hands of the taxpayers.

KNOCKDOWN BARRETT!

18. ROUND SEVEN: John Doe Scandal

Walker: I earned the rank of eagle scout. My office asked for investigation

Barrett: only gove with criminal defense lawyer. Key aides have been charged; internal network, secret computer system. Sent email saying it was bad PR. Who is paying his legal bills?

Due to the eagle scout remark, Barrett in a walkover.

21. ROUND TEN: EDUCATION

Walker: Talking about schools buying health insurance? Merit should drive hiring.

Barrett: Walker took 1.6 billion from k-12, tech school took 30% cut. Wants kids to leave college without buckets of debt. Walker tried to pit state colleges against each other, which would have driven up tuition. Shouldn't be fishing for out of state students.

I give this round to BARRETT.

27. FINAL ROUND

Walker: I took on the powerful interests!

Barrett: I have the courage to say no to my friends. I will be rock solid, not a rock star...I will work on job creation...I will take on all powerful interests...

Walker: He got a Democrat's vote because he took on powerful interest. Moms and dad...farms and factories...clothes on the back on iour kids...Let's move forward... yawn...

and I agree that Barrett did well, but Walker is such a slick, accomplished liar that I can see how he has a lot of people voting for him. By people, I mean GOPers.
