    The recall election is going to happen. They have enough signatures.

    true enough. I do not believe they will actually oust Walker though.

    Still,there are those on the left who claim that even if Walker is not ousted, they somehow 'won'. I don't see it. If Walker remains in office, all the left did was waste time and money, and they will have gotten nothing out of it but some bad press. No leadership change... no policy change... nada.

    I disagree. Gathering that many signatures in the amount of time allotted is a win whether he gets ousted or not. This recall has already got Wanker rethinking his "methods" and it will certainly make future WI Governors think carefully about how they treat their constituents.

    And remember, it isn't just Wanker on the chopping block...

    What exactly has he re-thunk, as it were? What is he doing differently? What has he reversed himself on? I can't find anything that indicates he is acting in any way differently than before the recall.

    As to how he treated his constituents. He's addressed budget issues, improved the financial picture, and done so without major layoffs.

    So the left proved that by spending millions and bringing in outside operatives that they could get the portion of Wisconsin voters that are unionized or liberal to sign a petition. In the meantime Walker's "methods" have resulted in Wisconsin eliminating a 3 billion dollar shortfall in the State's balance sheet while cutting taxes and not laying off police, fire or teachers. So explain to me how this is a "win" for the progressives or the unions if they can't change the minds of the Wisconsin voters that put Walker into office in the first place? The fact is...if they were changing minds about Walker there would be Democrats aplenty clamoring to run for the Governorship against him...yet after all this time...all those signatures and all that money spent...they can't find someone who WILL run. That right there tells you all you need to know about this recall effort.
