Let's just hope that next week the Republicans take back the two seats they lost last night by taking out the Dems that were recalled. If anyone deserves to lose their seats, those that wasted time and money by running off to another state to get out of doing their job do.
This mess in WI proved just what the Union backed Dems think of Majority rules. When you are out numbered and it doesn't look like you are going to get your way, run away and hide like spoiled brats. When that doesn't work waste even more money by forcing an election that changed NOTHING. Great thing is the Republicans still control the Senate and the Unions took a 30 million dollar blow to their pocketbooks and egos.
to win the two they did a smear campaign on one of the politicians..
not sure if is true but it certainly could effect the vote..
but one thing is clear this backfired on the liberals..
Wisconsin Recalls: Democrats in Danger
Two Democrats, from very different districts, are facing recall August 16: Bob Wirch, in the southern, industrial district that includes Kenosha, on the border with Illinois, and Jim Holperin of Eagle River, up in the North Woods.
This message—that the Democrats who left the state were shirking their duties—is the heart and soul of the Republican-led recall effort.
In Madison, where those senators are referred to as the “Fabulous 14” on T-shirts and posters, and where they were welcomed as heroes by a massive, cheering crowd when they finally returned to the state capitol, it seems like a total nonstarter. If the Senate Democrats hadn’t left town, the historic protests would never have had time to get going. Walker’s whole legislative agenda would have sailed through. Plus, it’s not like they went on vacation. Their decision to deprive the Republicans of a quorum was a political move. To their supporters, it was political leadership.
But that’s not how all the folks see it back home.
