I wrote a post last week criticizing the Wisconsin Democratic Party for how poorly they handled the Graeme Zielinski situation. Another post was written last night criticizing their support of labor. With so many people taking shots at the party leadership, and with Graeme being gone for more than a week now, I thought I would check and see what their plan was with the Graeme demotion. Keep in mind Graeme was fired for keeping the democratic party and the issues of the day IN the news.
Taking a tour of the internet we see on Madison.com, not mention or story of the democrats. Jsonline.com has a story on Tom Barrett but other than that nothing. Remember that Mike Tate took Graeme's twitter account away from him, so what else did he have lined up to replace him on the free ever popular twitter? 7 whole tweets all week, most about Scott Walkers failed jobs promise and international women's day. Not a single mention of the mining bill and the fact that our Assembly democrats fought so hard against! Their facebook page and any mention of the mine? Nope!
Apparently the party is doing so well, they do not need to reach thousands of people with free social media. I am not sure if anyone told them, but disappearing from the headlines is not a good thing and its hard to win an election as an anonymous candidate.
It appears that Mike Tate made a pitching change when he relieved Graeme, but forgot to replace him with someone to finish the game. Unless the mine bill(which was opposed by a vast majority of Wisconsinites) was not on the party's agenda or mind this week.
The republican party has proven they are for the out of state corporate interests and have no interest in what the people of Wisconsin want. Unfortunately as bad as they are, we do not seem to want to grab the bulls by the horn and show the people what we stand for!
Time for the democratic party to lead, we just need someone to step up and show the people of Wisconsin, who is on their side.
Right now it is hard to tell!
