    So what happened, 30 million spent on this recall election, Democrats/Labor Unions jumpin all kinds of ugly, the end of the Tea Party, all sorts of twisted liberal media coverage and doom for Republicans.... then silence....:lol:

    -------------------:dunno:

    The setback that Democrats and their labor allies suffered in the battle to reclaim Wisconsin underscores the challenge they and President Obama face as both parties prepare for the 2012 election.

    Tuesday's election — an attempt to recall six Republican state senators — was the first test of voter sentiment since the summer's debate over the national debt and the renewed stalling of the economy. Strategists on both sides were watching the contests as an early showdown on the economic themes likely to propel next year's campaigns.

    Indeed, the Wisconsin recalls were hailed as the resurgence of the labor movement in the U.S. The only thing that moved was how fast liberals and their media allies tried to turn attention away from the rebuff by Wisconsin voters. I have family in Wisconsin and they ended up putting a sign on their door advising that they would vote to retain their Republican Senator. They did this just so the union canvassers would leave them alone. Funny thing was that the union canvassers were from Michigan, Illinois and not from Wisconsin. I am very amused!

    But...but...but everybody hates the Tea Party!

    Maybe, but they sure think government spends too much, has way too much debt and needs to live within their revenues. Think anyone will start a movement like that?

    No real press coverage on the evening news - except for Fox. On the major networks one station didn't even cover it, one station had almost two minutes of coverage and another had 50 seconds. If the labor unions and Democrats had of been the winners, it would have been wall to wall coverage for days. Guess the Democrats and labor unions don't like it known that their asses were handed back to them. Maybe this will shut them up.
