We don’t know what qualifications former Green Bay Packers tackle (and Badger great) Mark Tauscher has to be governor of Wisconsin, if any. That isn’t stopping people from pushing him to run against incumbent Scott Walker in 2018, though.

Here is the Mark Tauscher for Governor of Wisconsin Facebook page.

From what I can gather, some people are so sick of Walker — and they don’t see a viable 2018 opponent — that they’re just going with someone who is locally famous. Having played for the Packers and Badgers, Tauscher fits the bill in Wisconsin.

This was the first actual post on the page.

Looking at the Field of candidates we see nobody with the broad appeal of former Badger/Packer Mark Tauscher. This page is a grassroots page dedicated to the idea that University of Wisconsin educated and former member of the NFL player’s Union is the people’s pick to move Wisconsin Forward Again.

Of course, the group behind this effort has no actual affiliation with Tauscher. Does he even have political aspirations?

That is not known. He’s been active in the community, but has only done sports radio since his playing days ended.

Does that qualify you to be governor?

Maybe only in Wisconsin.

    Let me stop laughing first….brb

      All right, i’m ok now.

      WOW……Losing elections has a profound effect on some people emotionally. It seems no matter what, the obsessive nature, coupled with the lingering disease of losing, actually cripples some people so emotionally, to the point, where not even the curing effects of time can heal.

      The WDP and United Wisconsin were so emotionally distraught, that Walker won the Governors election in 2010. They started to organize a recall election in full force. Apparently the Wisconsin liberals didn’t want anymore of this going on. —> During Walker’s first term as governor, the state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit was turned into a surplus[91] and taxes were cut by $2 billion

      Skipping the labor pains, the costly recall election was held in 2012. In this election, Walker beat Barrett worse than he did in the real election in 2010.

      The recall elections were the most expensive elections in Wisconsin history. According to the advocacy group Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, candidates and outside groups spent more than $80 million in the governor’s recall race. And what did investing over 80 million dollars net them in gain? Zilch, zero, NOTTAH. Nothing to show for 80 million fucking dollars.

      Now…i ask of you and correct me if i’m wrong, wouldn’t that 80+ million be better spent on low income families living under the poverty level?

      Mary Burke? ….who cares…NEXT

      Mark Tauscher…The liberals next great hope. How seriously desperate do some people have to get?

      Yes folks…Mark Tauscher..Why?…It’s very complex and intellectual….he has name recognition!!

        Didn’t mean to hurt anyones feelings. The political door was opened. Deal with it.

          anybody with hurt feeling is a retarded fucking baby

        I suddenly like you more

        Well said. Even better than your autopsies of the Packers.

    Wow it isn’t even the post-draft part of the offseason and this is the “news” that’s coming out…

    At least Tauscher has a college degree, unlike Scooter. Stranger things have happened. See Trump, Donald.

      Coming out of UWM, Gary Ellerson couldn’t read. when i say he couldn’t read, i’m talking 2nd, 3rd grade level…seriously, even after he retired from the NFL. I know this firsthand.

      I love Gary, he’a good and funny dude, who can read fine now after getting some help.

      It’s kind of funny that any sentence that begins with the words “at least” is a retarded statement 100% of the time.

      This ^^^^

      Which don’t mean shit…all that means he was indoctrinated and brainwashed with progressive ideas.. Walker the best we ever had.

      1. Empacador March 31, 2017

        Scooter the best? Now that’s funny, I don’t care who you are!

      2. Empacador March 31, 2017

        I love how anytime something is “different” it becomes “bad” when said different doesn’t agree with one’s own beliefs or values. Better hope the dope smokers don’t come for our guns!

    It is also kind of funny how easy it is to incite political dick wavers. I KNEW that would get some bites! Ha ha! What is amazing is how many people are ready to pounce and turn anything into a political debate. Still 100% fact is, Scooter doesn’t have a college degree. Nothing more, nothing less than a simple statement of truth.

    1. Empacador March 30, 2017

      And lest anyone thinks they know my political leanings, I hate Scooter simply because he is a dishonest piece of shit exactly like Hillary. She should be in prison. Secret servers and hidden networks and all that shit don’t do anything to benefit you or me. All that matters is the party, no matter how fucked up their stance is on anything. Unfortunately politics in the US is simply legalized bribery at all levels due to lobbyists. So there’s that.

      1. PF4L March 30, 2017

        Political Lobbying should be outlawed, at both the State and Federal level. I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know for fact, but i would guess that would wipe out about 80-90% of political corruption.

        Now……what are they doing about this fucking defense, and finding Ted a nice comfortable nursing home?

        1. Empacador March 30, 2017

          I’m still waiting for Ted to waste the 1st pick on another futile defensive player.

        2. MMTTDCSUCK March 31, 2017

          Fuck the rest home . . . Send him to DC! He would fit right in with Trump and his cabinet of ne’er do wells. Like our Sec. of Energy Perry who replaced a PH’d professor from MIT! Merca’ love it! Own it . . .
