People have voted for responsibility.
Some people have come to understand after the '08 debacle that choices have consequences.

What a long, strange trip it's been.

What will "The People" do now? This is almost barbaric to treat people this way.

Tea Party is dead, huh?

Romney will take WI in November.
The people there has tasted the Obama Wine...and spit it out.

And the Union boys pulled out all the stops on this one - including publishing people's private information int he Shame Your Neighbor Program - which really a ruse to publish voter data on people mot likely to vote so that Union scum bags could vote multiple times.

Sorry Charlie.....didn't work.

This is why is is absolutely STUPID to not require photo ID to vote.
There is no valid argument on this topic.
Only idiot mumblings.

walker is the projected winner with 60% of the votes in and a 16% lead. One of the talk shows guys said that mathmatically barret has to get 96% of the remaining votes to win.

How the hell you reconcile those results makes me skeptical of the exit polls
I live in TX but have relatives in MN, and know folks in western WI that are family friends. The folks in those 2 states are cut from a different (maybe even better) cloth than folks down here, or on either coast

WI is a Blue state that is fairly pro gun & anti abortion. They don't toe the Pelosi Line by any means. From my accounts, they vote for the candidate, not the party - at least compared to most states.

It doesn't surprise me WI voted in Walker & right now lean to Obama. They don't know Romney well, maybe they will change their minds after debates. If Obama can get ONE lesson from this, it's the fact he has to convey to that state and others that he can cut the budget in a meaningful way. Walker won the WI folks in a great part with that action.

George Bush only lost Wi by 5000 votes in 2000. 11k in 2004.

Obama won Wi by 13% ..........should be interesting

With all the money poured by the unions, the threats, the almost tearing apart the state capital, and hell they even brought Billy in for this fight and still got demolished! This should tell this administration, and any other NON fiscally responsible administration that the careless spending can not go on.
A win for America! Congrats Wisconsin for standing firm on your beliefs!

Big Dumb Ed Show comes on in 3 minutes....CAN'T MISS TV

I recall his show in Nov 2010, with the gap toothed ree-tard from Milwaukee @ his side. It was a funeral on tape. Should be the same tonite.

All that union money that went into this useless Recall...POOF! Gone into thin air.... I feel bad for the union boys, having an org waste their paycheck $ in that manner. That could have gone to their pension fund. Instead, it goes to the tv stations, radio stations, and pockets of Jesse Jackson and the like.

Suckers.

I almost always agree with you 100% but I'd have to say this is a victory for WI. Not necessarily for us all.

WI isn't PA, MI, or Ohio. Just my personal opinion, but I think it's GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER, with the help of competent leaders like Paul Ryan, that made this possible. I don't believe MI, PA, OH have leadership like WI has at the moment.

2016 or beyond I'd sure like to have Walker and / or Ryan on a national ticket & add Daniels and perhaps Coburn to the mix

Leadership makes all the difference. WI folks are lucky have this type of leadership!

Tom Barrett is receiving Boo's and heckling from his own supporters in his concession speech. Rough crowd

I agree completely Elk that leadership makes a difference. Look not to far away in indiana and you see something similiar. What will happen inevitably is some of the states you mention will run into budget problems and they will have to make tough choices as well. Because of the publicity of Wisconsin, people will remember and look to their leadership to make similiar moves.
I feel that was the biggest reason this was so nationally publicized. This could be a sweeping change throughout the nation. Public Unions will have to start paying their "fair share" now!

gotta love how the Left talkingheads are framing this defeat..."we were outspent 7 to 1". The kids on the streets of Madison on cnn parrotted that same line. ......No facing the truth about this is the second time Walker beat Barrett @ the polls. The people of WI have spoken. Time to move on to the business of government that the people of WI voted for

Great day for Wisconsin. I'm proud and envious at the same time
