To win, getting your base to the voting booth is not enough. You have to win independents. Barrett failed to do that. Walker was able to do that. End of story.
    So Barrett had no plan... what was Walker running on? And didn't Walker apologize or make some statement about "learning his lesson"

    It was for the base on both sides, but independents didn't see it that way, either way. They saw the budget numbers which showed a surplus, and the saw Barrett not being able to articulate his own plan for Wisconsin. Personally, I am disappointed that unions are being gutted, but I am able to think on my own, and not be controlled by hacks of either the left or the right, to see what swung the election.

    Liberals are loud and have the media on a choker but Conservatism and common sense rule the day!

    Obama and the DNC stayed out of this election as far as I know. Bill Clinton went there and made a speech, and that's as far as the establishment went in getting involved. Obama will be judged on Obamacare, not this election.

    Why didn’t the Unions work with Walker to balance the budget?
    Now they cut their own throats.

    Unions are not being gutted by this mandate. Public unions are being curtailed. Democrats will have to find a new way to buy their way into office. I hope this spreads like herpes.

    This thread makes me sad that WI Crippler was not as active as he used to be. Would've loved to hear his insight into this election the whole time

    "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"
