    What tactics will Democrats use?

    How will they overcome the fact that Walker's reforms are helping in areas where they have been applied? Some areas are still struggling but most of the areas which had to lay off staff are ones which didn't apply the reforms: most notably Milwaukee, Kenosha and Janesville.


    Will they try to hang areas like Milwaukee which rejected his reforms and opted for layoffs around Walker's neck? Or will they try to change the subject?


    One group is starting something called "Occupy Walker". As more and more average Americans become impatient with the Occupy movement will that work against the recall effort?



    And most importantly - whom will the Democrats put up to run against Walker?

    Hopefully they will lose, but hey, if the people in Wisconsin are dumb enough to do send Walker packing, then they deserve the outcome. Stupidity should be painful. They can be the bad example for other states to learn from.

    So far..the recalls haven't been "losers". Quite the opposite..considering how hard recalls are. And none of you guys were complaining about Governor Davis' recall.

    In any case, should be interesting.

    I complained about both. They are all wastes of time.

    Wisconsin reforms are WORKING! What was the leftist solution to a $3.7 billion budget short fall? Tax the rich! Yet that wouldn't even make a dent. Tax the corporations? First, we see it first hand in IL. Corporations will leave UNLESS they get a backdoor tax deal. The results in IL is corporations like Caterpillar, Novastar, Groupon, Motorolla, Sears, John Deere, etc now pay less in taxes! That would happen in WI.

    This short video explains what led up to the need for reform and the results!

    At the end of the day, it does not matter the party of the governor should Walker be recalled.
    The economic realities will still be the same. Revenues are down, the people are fed up with out of control public worker unions and high taxes to pay them.
    On a side note. The Ohio election that repealed their restrictive law regrading public worker rights, was the result of much higher turnout for registered democrats than GOP voters.
    Twice as many Dem voters as GOP.
    Many are scratching their heads as to why GOP turnout was so low in certain areas.
    Anyway, the State of Wisconsin has a rapidly growing revenue issue as do many other states, Unable to tax their residents at higher rates, the first area to be cut is labor.
    The economy will improve one thing though, hopefully those jobs will remain unfilled.
    Non-essential.

    I have a stake in this fight. Hopefully we will be able to hold the line.

    With all the mischief from outside people like Moveon.org, it could be tough. There's a lot of fatigue here.

    But hopefully conservatives and independents who see the reforms working will be up for whatever comes our way.

    Either link the special deal CAT got or admit you're LYING out of your ass.

    Not only did CAT not get any special deals, they invested ONE BILLION more dollars in their Illinois plants.
