    Recalls are usually done when a politician promises one thing during his campaign and then does something else once elected (see Barack Obama and FDR); or whose job performance abjectly fails to achieve what he promised due to his own bad judgment or other such incompetence (see Jimmy Carter and Gray Davis).

    Yesterday's failed recall attempt by the Democrats, was done simply because the Wisconsin governor promised during his campaign to cut spending, reduce the state's deficit, and curtail the public-sector unions; and then when a majority of Wisconsin voters approved of his plan and put him in office, he did exactly what he had promised. Wisconsin's small minority of leftist fanatics didn't like the promises, didn't like the results (which matched the promises), and so threw a temper tantrum and tried to go against the majority, and reverse the outcome of the original election. They failed the recall attempt just as they had failed to keep Walker out of office in the first place, and for identical reasons: What they wanted was the opposite of what the majority wanted, both times. Even the issues were identical.

    Recalls are usually for politicians who lie or fail. God knows we have enough of those. But here we had a recall attempt of a politician who kept his promises and succeeded. And apparently it was BECAUSE he kept his promises and succeeded!

    Sounds to me like the wrong people got recalled.

    The people in Wisconsin have recall fatigue. They voted Walker into office in 2010, and were determined to keep him there. The Union thugs are licking their wounds today.

    Heres another thing,,Liberals will challege anything if they dont like it. Like for example,,If you play Country Music on your radio station and if they say bad things about Obama..They go to the station tell the station manager to stop playing their music on the air. If he refuses to listen to them the liberals can go to the advertisers and tell them pull their ads off that station.And if they wont listen to them then theyre gonna boycott their products. Just like Liberals got some ads pulled off the Rush Limbaugh show becasuse they didnt like his comment about Sarah Flukie. But when Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a bitch and a cunt liberals wont do a thing to HBO. I couldnt cancell my HBO cause they do show good programming like "Girls" and "Veep"
