    Walker's ground game is pretty badass and pretty much a battle hardened well oiled machine. Didn't expect the high margin of victory but thought he'd take it.

    And the Dumbos failed to dethrone him....AGAIN!

    I see a potential Walker for President in 2016.

    So your pride in America is contingent on who controls the Senate?

    Sorry but I have learned that when republicans start their flag waving, people tend to pay too high a price, some more individually exponentially worse than for the whole, but generally not good.




    If you cannot feel hope and pride in America when someone is trying to be more than the party of no, then your point of view is so skewed from mine that there is no way we could ever agree.
    No we surely won't agree. But, we shall see exactly who "the party of no" is when repubs start passing through the 330 some odd bills Harry Reid was blocking from a vote...

    It's going to be a long 2 years for you if you don't loose the tired talking points.

    Yeah, I know that they won't. I just find it hilarious that whenever an election doesn't go the way people want, it is met with a surge of childish passive aggressive behavior .

    The ones the democrats supported in the House will probably b passed in the Senate once they are reintroduced in the House. The remaining ones are going to embarrass your side in its inability to get 60 votes.

    I hear you! Temper tantrums after elections are good entertainment, and we get them after almost every election.

    Prior to the recall vote, I thought that if he had succeeded in putting Wisconsin on a better fiscal trajectory and if the state's economy rebounded, he would win the recall vote. That happened. This election was largely a referendum on those outcomes. If a leader produces concrete results that benefit the public as a whole (economic growth and reduced fiscal risk benefit the public), whether his or her tactics to achieve those outcomes were controversial matters far less than the actual results. Wisconsin's electoral outcome validated something that has often happened in politics whether one thinks back to President Reagan's firing the air controllers upon their striking or Margaret Thatcher's breaking the NUM's hold on British public policy (to use two widely recognized examples).

    Is Governor Walker Presidential material? I'm not yet sure, but that question only concerns his ideas and broader policy background, not his leadership capability. Is he a tough leader who has demonstrated a willingness to persevere through adversity in pursuit of a vision he felt would benefit his state? Absolutely.

    Hard to dethrone someone when the whole election system is rigged.
