If Walker wins the recall election, was the recall a success?

  1. Yes, it sends a message that not everyone agreed with his actions.

    14.3%
  2. No, the ultimate goal of the recall was to oust Walker. If he wins, it's a failure.

    the idea was to waste time and money to get rid of him.

    If you waste all that time and money, and still fail to get rid of him, they will really have to ramp up the time and money to waste to keep him from being re-elected.


    My money is on Walker getting re-elected due to the fact WI is in better fiscal shape than it has been in a long time.

    You are forgetting the Senate recalls.

    If they take one seat, the Senate flips.

    Walker doesn't need to lose for the recall to be successful.

    Demonstrating to politicians that they remain accountable to voters who hold the ultimate power is always a success. Recall, protest....while packing heat, no less. Nothing bad can truly come of such things.

    Hate to break this to you but taking back the Senate would allow the Democrats to keep Walker from passing any "further" legislation but it wouldn't give them the ability to undo what he's already gotten passed and THAT legislation is what the unions are paying all those millions to try and get rid of.

    Bottom line...if they don't win the Walker recall then they've lost BIG TIME.

    If not for the recall, he would have never made such an admission. The fail is all Wankers...

    Yeah, that's not gonna happen though, is it?
    I mean, they collected more signatures than Walker had VOTERS in the last election.

    You don't win against the tide.

    You can if the Democrats don't have a candidate to run against him.
