I am NOT a political person but I am VERY opinionated. I read the article on front page of the freeman today about our very own Mayor declining an invitation to meet the president at GE Thursday because of some lame excuse of remaining bipartisan but it makes me hot that he is supposed to be representing Waukesha and is showing disrespect to the President. Whether voted or not like it or not Obama IS THE PRESIDENT and will be in our history ...books for generations to come.Plus Mayor Scrima was voted into office meaning you already are NOT bipatision and you need to show YOUR Boss respect. You can be racist if you need to but you are showing the youth how to be disrespectful and frankily I feel that is whats wrong with society already. Fact is you did not vote for him or you donot like his political views whatever but he IS the president whether you like it or not and it is a disgrace that he not attend message you are sending for Waukesha is pathetic because some of us donot judge by color. Mayor Scrima needs to get it together or leave his post as our mayor.Because right now he is NOT doing his obligation.

Regardless of your political leaning I think we can all agree that the Patch NOT reporting on the Mayor primary results is disgustingly lame.

Mr Lundt, per a guy who used the name "Patch" to post in one comment section and who I actually verified as a Patch employee, we just don't realize that we're getting a much better Patch than we were in the past. They have the numbers to support their contention that we'd much rather read about Facebook birthday party friends, pilots flying around the country saving condemned dogs, students making fantastic half court shots, daughters obsessed with "Frozen, etc, etc, etc. And all these things are indeed local within the area where they occurred, so complaints that Patch is no longer local are moot. They're working 7 days a week on stuff they'd rather not go into detail about because we're all too skeptical and...blah, blah, blah. You don't need to know about mayoral primary thingies. So don't worry about that stuff and contemplate butter so good you'll skip the bread.

To be fair, how to make a homemade electrolyte pop is on par with a mayoral election. I guess something had to give and one can see how the popsicle made the cut and the election did not. Keeping the low in low information voters.

The National partisan break out appears to be like 47% to 47% with the low information voters who don't know or care what that think, swaying the outcome one way or the other usually being influenced by advertising. With that in mind, being Bi-Partisan is also being Third Partisan. YOU LOSE.
