    Recall =/= impeachment

    Impeachment is criminal law violations
    Recall is lemon law violations

    Dude never said anything about going after unions when he ran for office then he made it his #1 goal after elected. He showed one face in election then showed a completely different face when elected and now he's paying the price for his deceit of his constituents.

    And this is a bad thing? Anyone with a job has to do what their boss wants (within reason). In the case of politicians their boss is the electorate. Sometimes politicians forget that in the pursuit of their personal or party agenda, which seems to be the case in WI.

    Re: Recall election ordered for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker

    I am curious to see if/when Walker becomes Blaggo Part 2.

    He is a weasel.

    I'd be reluctant to hitch my wagon to him yet if I were one of you rightwing types.

    Just sayin'....

    Maybe, the threat of a recall, will have them considering the will of their constituents. Walker had ample warning that his union legislation was deeply unpopular, before he signed it. Just sayin'.


    Recalls are not all that frequent an occurrence, so I'm not sure that would keep them in perpetual campaign mode anything more than any other reason.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Anyways, no more delays. The recall is now officially on.

    Predictions? I think Walker will survive this election - barely, but I believe that the Senate will flip. However, this November, depending on the turnout, and whichever presidential candidate has the better coat tails in Wisconsin, the Senate could flip back to the Republicans.

    Confused yet? Just wait. It's going to get even better. LOL.

    Article is here.
    Why would Walker want the job given that he can no longer impliment his agenda?

    Impeachment is not the same as a recall.

    We bash Republicans for crying about impeachment, because there is nothing illegal that Obama has done. Yes, we know you THINK he has, however and luckily, what you think doesn't matter only legality does.

    As for recall, I WISH there was an option to recall a president before the 4 years was up. It would have saved us from the damage GWB did and it would have possibily saved us from the damage Obama is doing.

    Rasmussen shows Walker's approval rating at 43%--ironically the same as Obama's. So who the hell knows whats going to happen.

    March 4 for the time of the release.

    And Thompson is shown at 50% in this poll: Wisconsin Senate: Thompson (R) 50%, Baldwin (D) 36% - Rasmussen Reportsô
    Again its Rasmussen. Release date was late Feb.

    Ahh, the Republican House of Ras. However, on their Senate poll, I am more inclined to believe it than the one NBC/Marist posed, which shows Baldwin beating a "generic" Republican. Thompson happens to be a lot more popular than "generic". Since the poll does come from the House of Ras, I don't believe that Thompson leads by that much, but still, I am inclined to believe that Thompson will win this race for certain, albeit by a smaller margin.

    Personally I would like to Walker beat the recall election. Walker losing would mean less politicians standing up to out of control unions.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
