    Would you care to post the link to the bls web pages comparing WI's job creation to all the other states?

    Didn't think so.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    What's really retarded is suggesting that Republicans just flushed Tens of millions of dollars for no reason. You guys sure are fiscally responsible!

    So ya got no clothes.

    All you can do is cite rhetoric. Its not the old governors fault but its Walkers fault jobs havent been created. No discussion on where the budget was headed, what the policies were, no discussion on if maintaining public contracts is the right thing or even economically feasible in the immediate, short, and long term. No discussions on funding of retirement program, no discussion on the education system, improvements, ways and means to enhance jobs growth. At the end of the day...Walker evil, Unions innocent victims...

    Id actually prefer they do away with term limits for presidents. PLEASE bring back Bill Clinton. I think voters are the best means of determining term limits.

People dont care about the reality...they care about their 'causes'
    I'm not reading any reason for anyone to celebrate on that front. I think he just moved money and burden. I'd be interest in reading any analysis by anyone not vested in either side. But even if it is better, putting the burden on one side of the ledger is seldom seen as fair, and largely breeds discontent.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Great News!!!!!!!!!!
    Wisconsin is traditionally a 'blue' state that voted for a change and elected Walker because their state was on the wrong track. I think it is wrong-minded to make this a mandate on Obama. Maybe...just maybe...the citizens of Wisconsin are voting for their state needs and not out of protest of Obama. Its a little frustrating to see so many people motivated by their own political ideology assign the meaning they hope to be the case.

    I thought it was the Dems who initiated the recall.
