    Re: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker survives recall effort, NBC News projects

    To me it’s a simple case of the people of Wisconsin voicing their opinion, placing their vote, and the results are in. They want to give Walker his term in office. The why and wherefores of what the outcome of the recall election is now a mute point.

    The liberals are looking for excuses, so they use the money, which I find a bit hilarious, you don’t see them saying anything about Obama out spending McCain in the presidential election, I guess to them outspending only counts when they get outspent and lose??

    The majority of the people in Wisconsin have spoken, had they been dead set against what Walker had done, and is doing, no amount of money would have changed their vote. I don’t live in Wisconsin, so I have no idea what their thinking is, but one can only “think” that the people there have seen something that they want to give a chance to. Because of the recession states are in difficult positions, and hard choices have to be made. Many of these states rode out the good times, spent more then they should have and let things get out of control. I pity a person being elected to make these hard choices , because people aren’t going to like them. I also respect those same people that take them on because in my opinion they are putting their popularity aside and making decisions that are best for their states.

    Governor Walker has been in office just over a year now, yet some here are pointing at his record, those same people were defending Obama’s record after one year saying he needed time, again .. I guess it’s only their candidate that should get the time to turn things around. Considering all that has happened in Wisconsin, starting with the walk out by the democrats, the riots that took place, the recall elections of other elected officials, ending in his own recall election. I can’t see anyone pointing to his record and calling it good or bad …… Now he will have 3 years to see and be judged on . It will be the people of Wisconsin that will judge him, not some right or left winger here.

If we kick that assclown Obama out of DC in November, maybe we can begin to adapt what works to a national level again. Wisconsin is a perfect microcosm of the fight ahead and the solution needed.
    I was discussing stocks, you claimed that business friendly environments yielded better results in the stock market, claimed that Obama was anti business and that Democrats "ruin the business environment" yet ignored the sizable increase under Obama thus far. I'm not in any way shape or form attributing the uptick in the last 3 1/2 years to Obama's policies, but the sheer correlation kinda destroys your own argument.

    You DO get that Im not blaming Walker...Im actually pointing out that there IS in fact more to this than good party bad party and that ideologues continue to just spout mindless party rhetoric and that helps nothing. You get that...right?

    No, the taxpayer has no right to tell that person what to do with their money. No more than your boss has a right to tell you what to do with your paycheck. Why is it hard to understand?

    If people didn't come on here and spout mindless party rhetoric, this site would be dead in a week.

    So we'll have more fun if we argue about whether this is a bellweather for the Republicans, and if Obama wouldn't be better off just resigning now so Romney can pick out the upholstery for the Oval Office.

    Business friendly environments DO yield better results in the stock market, the ONLY reason Wallstreet is doing so well is because the government bailed them out with TRILLIONS of dollars in funding. Wallstreet is on a bubble right now based on government spending, it will all come crashing down when Europe gets in trouble and of course, with no money for bailouts the Wallstreet gains will come back down.

    To me it is very sad that we are left with those two primary options (Im very encouraged to see Gary Johnson taking the lead as the nominee for the Libertarian ticket. That MAY actually make things interesting). Of the two major parties I can think of three people (Clinton-D, Powell-C, Hunstman-R) that would actually make a positive difference for the country. Instead...holy ****. Those two...and a 'supporting' cast in congress.

    Fear and tremble...the Mayans may have been on to something...
