I’m not seeing any facts posted by you. You almost sound like a union propagandist.

Lost the recalls? “There are no tanks in Baghdad”

Here are the facts, for all of us.

Big thug unions went 2 for 6 in that election. Even your central propaganda organ said >>>>>

The outcome was seen as a victory for Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican whose move to curtail collective bargaining rights for public workers this year set off a firestorm of protests, then counterprotests and finally a summer of unprecedented recall efforts.

Kapanke lost because he was in a blue blue district. Unfortuate. Until we have conservative talk radio in western Wisconsin, we have a big disadvantage there.

Hopper lost because of a one-of-a-kind girlfriend problem. He started an affair with a 25 year old girlfriend, bad divorce, etc. Even with this anchor around his neck he only lost by 1251 votes or 2 percent. Do you union guys really want to crow about a 2 percent “victory” when the loser was a shown during the election to be philandering scum? Do you like to brag about kicking cripples too?

Money? Walker’s got so much that he’s running multiple ads per night on television now. He has lighted billboards on I-94. With these advertisements he finally gets to point out his achievements, quietly solidly, night after night week after week right in our living rooms. And now that the recalls aren’t going to take place until summer, and Walker’s ads can run - without opposing responses - Mr and Mrs Normal Wisconsinite are going to be asking what’s all the fuss about?

But you know what speaks even more loudly for him? The vast majority of Wisconsites tax bills which for the first time in years went down or didn’t go up. And most of the Wisconsin school districts where the sky didn’t fall and there weren’t teacher layoffs.

And union money that’s going to dry up more and more. In case you haven’t heard, Obama’s going to need that money and there are more and more teachers that are going to figure, ‘what’s the use of paying dues when we can’t use it do anally extract dollars from the taxpayers?’

Wisconsinites that are paying attention aren’t going to like the price tag on this recall 9-18 million dollars. That’s a lot of money that could have gone to education or to healthcare or roads.

After Walker wins this recall he’s going to be in a more powerful position in Wisconsin.
