    Oh, so you want to attempt to make a partisan topic about unions non-partisan?

    And I don't care about how much was spent on Walker's behalf. Unions and Democrats were just as able to spend an equal amount in support of the recall. They didn't, but whose fault is that, right?
    I agree with the bold. I am on the union side of things, but they Democrats and unions dropped the ball on this one (which isn't surprising because the left often drops the ball when it comes to fighting for itself). Walker outspent them and I think that certainly contributed to his win, but the Dems didn't go as hard as they could have and they share quite a lot of blame for the outcome.

    Well... good luck to Walker in getting anymore of his policies passed.


    Walker Wins Recall, Democrats Win Control of the Senate Halting Right-Wing Agenda

    In the early hours of the morning, word came from Southeastern Wisconsin that former state Sen. John Lehman, D-Racine, beat incumbent Republican Sen. Van Wanggaard, with 36,255 votes to Wanggaard's 35,476 votes, according to unofficial results with all precincts reporting. Combined with two other successful Senate recalls in August of 2011, this win means Democrats flipped the Senate from Republican control and put a halt to the Walker agenda.

    How the hell would I know? Ask him. It's only three more years of his term to go.

    I dont know...it was pointed out by Jay Carney yesterday that in 2009 Obama was given a horrible budget...by Congress. Not his fault. Mind you...he didnt point out that Democrats controlled the budget completely from 2007 to 2011...but why mess with those pesky facts...

    I dont really deal in 'fault' and you are absolutely correct in your assessment with Fox and the Tea Party. heck...you could even say they got a far bigger bang for the buck considering the viewership. Still...it makes the dollar amounts all 'relative' when you figure in the real world that we live in today.

    Lehman will only be there for 6 months before he is booted and very little of that time will be while the senate is actually in session. Additionally, the Wisconsin analysts, expect republicans to pick up two seats next term - due to redistricting. So, they'll be back in the majority shortly.

    What was the state of Wisconsin when Walker got elected? What is it now? What is its future. Good lord...how refreshing it would be if people were more interested in the needs of the people rather than a political agenda.
