Full length presentation of "only" the President's talk.  This video was made possible by WORT 89.9 Community Radio, Madison WI.

President Obama flew into Madison WI from Colorado last night for a mid-morning campaign rally.  This is the last day before the Presidential Election of 2012 is held tomorrow Tuesday November 6th.  Democratic candidate for Senate Tammy Baldwin was also present and introduced by retiring Senator Herb Kohl.  Bruce Springsteen performed several songs.  He then shared with the crowd his personal interactions with Barack Obama and his personal commitment to the President's success and then introduced President Barack Obama.  The President spoke for about 25 minutes to a very encouraging crowd.

Moyers : Hacker & Pierson on Engineered Inequality : PBS

From Bill Moyers & Company website:
Because of Hurricane Sandy’s impact on our offices and studio, we’re airing this encore edition of Moyers & Company, first broadcast in January. This Election Day, issues of money, influence and “winner-take-all politics” are more important than ever.
Moyers & Company dives into one of the most important and controversial issues of our time: How Washington and Big Business colluded to make the super-rich richer and turn their backs on the rest of us.
Bill’s guests – Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson, authors of Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer — And Turned Its Back on the Middle Class, argue that America’s vast inequality is no accident, but in fact has been politically engineered

Walker continues WAR ( #D&C ) Divide & Conquer: Healthcare

(File under "Secret Agenda" and "Stealth Government" ) - Oh! and by the way, as I understand it as an employee you may have to read it online ... hard copies not supplied (seems retirees got hard copies!?)?

It seems ironic that as  a Republican and champion of "small government" Governor Walker has proceeded to make healthcare more expensive and complicated to obtain.   Take a a look at... just a few examples of making you unhealthy and healthcare less affordable.

Pharamacy - Navitus Health Solutions - UW Employees & Retirees & others & State Employees????

This is from page 74 of the Decision Guide .... understand it?  So just as we get ObamaCare going Walker improvises to make "healthcare more expensive" for everyone.  I say everyone because these kind of changes will "trickle down" to the private sector where management or executives can get special plans or special compensation but you cannot.  Duh ...
What’s New for 2013

TechCrunch : Why Pundits And Politicians Hate #NYT Election Forecaster Nate Silver ( #538 )

Why Pundits And Politicians Hate NYT Election Forecaster Nate Silver

It comes down to arithmetic (a confusing sub-element of mathematics?)!

From the article -

The New York Times election oracle, Nate Silver, who in his fivethirtyeight blog correctly predicted 49 of 50 states in the last election, predicts that Obama could breeze to victory with a 75 percent chance of winning. Despite his relatively simple method of averaging polls to predict winners, he’s become a punching bag for pundits and politicians who label him a fradulent snakeoil salesman. ....

And an example of rants ...

“Both sides understand that it is close, and it could go either way. And anybody that thinks that this race is anything but a tossup right now is such an ideologue, they should be kept away from typewriters, computers, laptops and microphones for the next 10 days, because they’re jokes,” said MSNBC’s hotheaded morning political pundit, Joe Scarborough, in a pointed rant against the humble New York Times statistician.

 But the part I like most is a quoted tweet ...
