  • He called me this morning so I think I'll pass.
    Mother Jones called too and said don't believe anything Bitterbits says.

  • Its SILLY. I heard it on ..........FOX NEWS. They played the audio. The guy being KOCH is being utterly obnoxious and baiting and Walker sounds like he is patiently talking to a crazy uncle. But the BEST part (and funny YOU should be the one to post this sweet) is that this kinda PROVES that he isnt all buddy buddy with the man! If he WAS themn he would have known it wasnt him!

  • This country is definitely controlled by a handful of corporations and wealthy people. Pretty sad that thousands of people in Wisconsin would like to talk to him, but he'll drop everything to ramble on with someone he thinks is David Koch for 20 minutes basically kissing his butt the whole time. Also, doesn't sound so great for him to admit he thought about planting people to be trouble makers within the protest crowds.

  • O it doesn't prove that, he refused all calls except his. The gov also admits considering placing disruptors in the protesters

    He also admits his goal is union busting, as he mentiones weakening unions in other states

    that's not a secret.
    this was mentioned and discussed in the GOP since early 2008.
    I'm all for it. WooHoo.

  • From the same 'ick-journal' who wrote~ "F'k the Troops"...... Yikes! I guess this shows us that Walker and Koch aren't as "close" as some people thought, otherwise Walker would know the voice.... Walker doesn't know Koch from an asshat blogger..... Walker didn't say anything different than what he says on news/tv.... I don't see what is quite interesting about Walker's words... He repeatedly says this is ABOUT The BUDGET...... He refers to FDR's quote on public sector unions... He talks about getting the message out and the positive message/sentiments he has received.... He said just because some union workers come in from other states or can jump out of working, they don't represent the 5.5 million... He doesn't anyone to create a ruckus and scare the public.. Let them protest... I don't see anything interesting... Not to say someone could spin it to be MORE than it is... LOL..
