Revisiting Wisconsin’s Job Numbers: Prognosis? Not So Good

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Not too long ago, Political Progressives blogged about how Wis. Gov. Scott Walker would not be able to fulfill his campaign promise of adding 250,000 jobs to the Wisconsin workforce. Of course, politicians failing to keep their word from the campaign trail once they reach office is nothing new – President Barack Obama campaigned in […]

Voter Fraud in the Wisconsin Assembly: Didn’t We Just Pass A Law Against This?

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

If there’s two things that Political Progressives loves to blog about the most, it would have to be corruption in government and hypocrisy. Wait, wasn’t that the first line of our last post on Political Progressives? Indeed it was. But it seems like Wisconsin Republicans must be reading out blog, because they continue to contribute […]

Scott Walker – Wisconsin’s (Reverse) Robin Hood

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

If there’s two things that Political Progressives loves to blog about the most, it would have to be corruption in government and hypocrisy. We see these two things as the biggest threats to sustainable, representative government. Thankfully, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has given us a great example of combining both of these traits at one […]

Walker’s Job Promises: A Campaign Pledge That Won’t Be Honored

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Political Progressives has always been a joy for us to write. There is nothing we love more than covering politic, especially politics close to home. However,creating daily blog posts is not the cakewalk many people believe it to be – especially on top of a more than full-time job, other obligations, and life in general. […]

Feingold Passes on Politics… For Now

Friday, September 16th, 2011

Following our trend of covering news so outdated even local NBC affiliate WGBA 26 isn’t covering it anymore, today Political Progressives examines Russ Feingold’s not so recent decision to refrain from re-entering politics in 2012. For those of you completely out of the loop, Feingold, a former Wisconsin Democratic Senator, was ousted from that job […]

Wu Woos Himself out of His Job on Capitol Hill

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Political Progressives fell very, very far behind over the summer covering political happenings and events, and we can’t apologize enough for that. We’re still a bit shaky on our production schedule, as our writer’s computer up and died. However, we’re going to attempt to go back and cover some of the major events of the […]

Wisconsin Recall Elections: Winners and Losers

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

As much as we hate to do it, everyone wants to know who “won” and who “lost” whenever something major happens in politics. The simple – and usually truthful – answer is that things aren’t so black and white. In most instances, there is no clear winner or loser, or there’s no one winner and […]

The Debt Deal: Ron Johnson

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Okay, we’ll be the first to admit that we’ve been quite hard on members of the Tea Party over the last week. We’ve called them “Tea Baggers”, blamed them for two major governmental crises, and essentially deemed them the worst thing to happen to government since the Pauls (who also happen to be Tea Baggers). […]

The Debt Deal: America

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

The title is kind of funny, we know. But it makes sense if you look at the series as a whole. We’ve been talking about the debt deal in relation to specific groups or people – first the Republicans, then the Democrats, and yesterday President Obama. Today, we’re looking at what the American people did […]

The Debt Deal: Obama

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

We’ve done our best to be impartial of President Obama, as we’ve criticized several of his decisions in full-length posts. But it shouldn’t come as a secret to any of our log-time readers that we’re Obama fanboys. However, we’re not supportive of the President because he gives great speeches, or because he brought ‘hope’, or […]
