Ron Johnson Falls, Can't Get up -- By Choice

Again, Johnson cites his party's spectacular failure over the Obamacare hysteria he supported.

But voted at the end to try and keep the shutdown going.

This is falling and wanting to stay down.

Sounding like a former CEO unable to navigate a world where your every wish is no one's command.

So, again, go figure.

You write in a style as pompous as Ron Johnson. What can you type about the other party that isn't spiteful? You lecture about the Wisconsin legislature shunning the minority, but then shun the opposition opinion yourself. I don't understand how the greatest generation raised this generation to be so slanted in world view.

@10:50 am - I disagree. Rowen is simply exposing the hypocrisy of ROJO's midget mentality. I would not describe ROJO as pompous - arrogant and misinformed and easily swayed by his Koch handlers - yes.

If you've followed this blog for any length of time, you'll know that James is neither pompous nor spiteful. He's kept us informed when others have not (e.g. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). He's waded through the corruption (lot's of it, unfortunately) to get at the truth. Thanks, James!

Are you serious,
Nothing can be as spiteful as the Conservative party. All they think about is themselves and how they will benefit. Name me one thing, that they said they would do for the people. And please, not a $13.00 dollar tax break. Integrity is a word left out of their vocabulary. Now tell me, Johnson, Ryan, walker, Vos, or any of them know what integrity means. And by the way I am from your generation.

Ron Johnson doesn't write.

And I don't think 'pompous' is the word you're going for.

And full disclosure? Doesn't an "old school" journalism kind-of-guy believe in providing information to readers?

You are part of the journal communications propaganda machine.

And you hate it when someone points it out -- but you will not disclose your role in the disinformation mechanism either.

It's also the mark of someone who has had everything given to him (like his F-I-L giving him his own business), or buying his way into status (like the Senate). These lucky bast*rds think they can get away with anything, because they've never been told the word "No."

He is an embarrassing buffoon, and anyone who voted for that bum deserves an Inquisition. I'm not being pompous when I say that, because it's quite obvious that (Mo)Ron Johnson isn't bright, decent, or respectful of anyone not in his little club

Anonymous @10:50 - You don't seem to understand that Mr. Rowen is a journalist who expresses his own opinion on his own blog. Ron Johnson is an elected official who is supposed to represent the interests of all Wisconsin residents, not just the teabaggers. Mr. Rowen can be as pompous in his writing style as he wants to be but Johnson should keep it to himself and do his job or step aside and let someone else do it.

James has never hidden his casual relationship with the Journal. He has also mentioned, several times, that they do not control what he writes about, nor pay him for it.

Your anonymous obsession is ugly and spiteful, but your anonymous lying is worse.

Two things: I am fully disclosed. And I have a style? That is a first!

perhaps you're just stylish, James.
