    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Ahh, and that's the rub. You now have the honesty to state the real reason for busting the unions - Politics, not the economy. And, of course, when Walker was running for office, he never mentioned that he planned to gut the unions. He would not have been elected otherwise. Here's the deal. Walker lied. If he had been honest from the start, and not attempted to subvert the will of the people, who support the unions by a fairly large majority, he would not have been recalled. After he was elected, his approval numbers were sky high. Now? The recall is favored by 58% of Wisconsinites, something which spells doom for Walker. It was Walker who played the game of political thuggery, and now he is going to pay for it.

    NOTE: As far as Wisconsin's economy goes, Walker has failed completely. Wisconsin shed more jobs than any other state, during the last half of 2011. Walker said his plans would create more jobs. This is an issue for the recall election too.

    Not according to their labor department numbers:

    Yes, he lied about his intent. Now he is on the chopping block and hopefully will pay the price for his dishonesty. I know you think he is a god, but alas, he is only human so you will have to find a new conservative deity.

    In their previous recall election they only successfully removed 2 of six republicans. I'd love to see this recall be a crash and burn too
    I was recently in Wisconsin and saw a lot of recall Walker protestors but I also saw a lot out showing their support.
