Didn't hear your outrage when Frankenstein "won" the recount.

Stuff happens and I am sure an audit will be don't to ensure those votes were correct.

Outrage? If this was voter fraud ( Franken) I would agree with you. The results will be audited.

You seen to love freedom, but evidently only certain votes should be counted. That is a good sign for our republic to say the least.

I am sure you had similar outrage with votes apppeared out of thin air for the carpetbagger Al Franken....and the MN court refused to look at any issues including the Felons for Franken voting bloc...

It appears the Scott Walker opposition is not as prevalent as some had hoped.

OK, first of all Freedom Lover is being sarcastic folks. He/she is a conservative.

I absolutely this election, what a riot. The libs wanted this one so bad as a claim to legitimacy and a rally point that they could taste it. Guess what folks, despite your efforts to incite demonstrations and create outrage by doing everything you could to delay (going awol), using the press to create outrage and a false characterization of public opposition, you are still in conflict with the majority of the public in both your own state and at a national level on collective bargaining. Your games are over and your policy is going to have to stand on it's own and guess what? It never would in the past and it still won't now.

I don't even think this was a state wide election and if it wasn't that's really telling as it included the two most liberal strong holds in Milwaukee and Madison.

Unions and supporters, consider this your second notice. Trains a coming.

Well it looks like the Referendum on Walker is in. It appears the people of Wisconsin are backing his actions.

Maybe, just maybe the Democrats and unions should look at this as precursor to what the results of the Senator recall is going to be.

I hate to agree with what the Red Star said yesterday, but this looks like a mandate from the people if I ever say one, they are correct

Everyone be gracious now and let the union babies have a nice cry, before you start kicking them like a tin can.

I sorry conservatives, but who are you kidding? This was a JUDICIAL election with an INCUMBENT running for reelection. Under normal circumstances, this would swing 90-10. You're staring at 50-50. To claim that this means that the 'majority of residents' support Walker is quite a stretch - But keep dreaming.
The recall votes will prove far more indicative of the people's thoughts..

I'm glad to see she might lose, after bragging she won prematurely. Imagine if she was a HANGING JUDGE? Oh, so sorry for the misjudgment...here is your HEAD BACK.

The Unions and national liberal groups poured tremendous resources into this race. The fact they couldn't win it is very telling..... The conservatives were much less organized and still won. Wait until a "real" election... Running away to another state really hurt them. I might have even supported the dems on this one, but not after that pathetic display. Its an affront to the democratic process.

This thread is turning into another joke.The tea baggers are gloating about a victory over the Wis libs.The fact is, no matter if they are lib,bagger, or wing-nut,they will always be a bunch of cheese heads,and their football team will always wear Girl Scout colors.

This is why they do certifying of results. This allows for at least the numbers to match. A whole county missing results would be caught at this point.

Feingold's defeat.. told you nothing. The people voting the Democrats out.. told you nothing. The people standing by Walker and Prosser.. told you nothing. If anyone is dreaming.. it's you and the rest of the liberals and unions.
