    This is the biggest problem I have with the whole affair. If we start recalling people because we do not like it when they do their jobs (even if they enact policy we disagree with) then any sense of governmental stability goes out the window.

    This is not a common thing, it has rarely happened in history. To me it is very refreshing to see people take the effort to hold their representatives accountable.

    This wasn't just Walker doing his job. It was Walker clearly having a hidden agenda that he never revealed when he was running for the job.

    I kind of wonder what Walker is thinking right now. He's such an arrogant ass for the way he conducted his campaign and then turned around and tried to remove all public worker's rights without warning. You'd think that all massive protests and their energy and passion would have made him think or at least try to sit down and appeal the people, work something out with them and come to an agreement, but no. He deserves to get thrown out for that alone. The clown totally had not regard for the people he was elected by.

    It's common and sad to see so many politicians in public office refuse to work together and refuse to listen to the other side for the betterment of the nation, but it should be a crime when our government leaders begin treating it's own people in that regard.

    I guess it depends on your views on elections. If you're going to enact radical change then you should run on radical change. I don't think there would be a big backlash if he just tried to balance the budget. Now going in and cutting taxes on the wealthy then getting rid of collective barganing....I'd be a little pissed too.

    Not really, this is an example of people holding a politician accountable. He basically lied to get elected and now he is being held accountable for that. I only wish we could do that for every politician.
