Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker retained his governorship Tuesday night, besting Democrat Tom Barrett in a race that was a referendum on Walker's decision to take on public employee unions.

Walker led Barrett, who was the governor's 2010 opponent and is the current mayor of Milwaukee, 54 to 45 percent with 83 percent of precincts reporting. Walker beat Barrett in 2010, 52 to 46.5 percent.

Bwahahahahhahahahahahhahahahahhahahaha!!!

While it wasn't a landslide victory, it was a victory nonetheless and the good people of Wisconsin didn't bow to union coercion. That guy is now bulletproof.

It was a great night and a loud and clear message to the unions. They sure have overreached. For some reason I kept thinking about a quote from The Dark Knight "you either die a hero or live long enough to be the villain". Though I thank the unions for being tough back during those years when working conditions were awful, they have overstayed their welcome and have now been around long enough to be the villains.

Doesn't change anything, Wisconsin will still go to Obama in November. Every poll has Obama beating Romney and it's been like this for a while.

Sure, but it does put Wisconsin in play now. Had the unions not cried out for a recall and this fiasco had been avoided, I'm sure the great O wouldn't need to bother to campaign in the state. WI would have gone to him in a landslide, but now? I'm sure his campaign staff is sweating about the fact that, while WI will go for them in the election, they will now have to fight for it. And considering that he left the unions and Dem. voters hanging there, with barely a tweet of support, how energized will the WI dems be next November for someone who left them hanging?

Now, don't be so sure of an O win by a landslide, otherwise the dissapointment will be too great for you guys. I'm not so confident on a Romney win, thanks to the mainstream media, so if on Nov. 7 I wake up with news of an O reelection, the dissapointment won't be so great as if I were completely positive he was going to win. In fact, I'll be spending all this time between now and Nov. 6 preparing for the worst (an O win) and hoping for the best (not so much a Romney win, but an O defeat)

Now, if only Mittens could be persuaded to select Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his running mate.....

You can't categorize crazy hateful people, they belong to both sides. Typical tactic: take a few people and use them to paint a picture of the party in general. How many people on the right wish death on democrats? A lot.

Still quite a shameful display from the Left. With such a display of vile hate they deserved to lose.

Except that doesn't reflect the majority of people who wanted to recall him. That's what, a dozen tweets?

Are death threats not illegal anymore? Crazy how people say stuff like that, let alone attach their real names to it.

I wish someone would death threat, and subsequently follow through with said threat, against Twitter.

"I'm finna straight up put a bullet in Twitter head, yo. Nawmean?"

PR, I don't think half of those nitwits on twitter could spell "assassination," let alone accomplish the feat.

It's more than a dozen tweets, that site only covered a few. The tweets from those sore losers are simply abominable. The Police btw are looking into the tweets, I hope they make a few arrests.
The unions can now go away and think about the stunning loss. Organized labor countrywide looked at this recall and hoped for Walker's recall, well they gambled and lost thank God.

I somewhat agree, people who issue death threats to ANY person should be looked into. I look forward to your outrage when someone from the other side receives a death threat, and hopefully it won't be something like...


Wow if this had been done during Bush's term the libs would have a love fest.

Either you agree or you don't. Nice to see some of you people on the left think death threats are a bit recherche.

It is a state that has been a political laboratory historically.

They voted him in office. To "recall" him - to impeach him - without even letting him finish his term was just shady. They're just dumb asses. Now it bit them in the ass.

For some reason I kept thinking about a quote from The Dark Knight "you either die a hero or live long enough to be the villain". Though I thank the unions for being tough back during those years when working conditions were awful, they have overstayed their welcome and have now been around long enough to be the villains.

That's kind of deceptive though. Being a villain seems to imply your fighting against the good guys. In reality it's more the bad guys against the even worse guys, with corporations and politicians being the "even worse guys". To be blunt anybody with the mental ability above a retard that doesn't think corporations are the "even wore guys" is an idiot. While unions have had their faults, having them is still better than the alternative.

I also am amused that anybody thinks working conditions are good or even just alright. They are probably as bad as they have been since the 1940s and they are getting worse every day. Yeah maybe in comparison they are better than a 19th century coal mining town or some virtual Chinese slaves our companies use...for now, but that doesn't exactly say much for us. Thanks to the practices of corporations and the lack of power of labor much of what has went wrong as happened. In my observation people are against unions and other things like them, not because they think they are a bad thing in any objective way from a ethical or moral standpoint, but because of blind ideology that has been brainwashed into them to fear the socialist bogyman and not based on the merits of the ideas themselves. They don't have any good reason to believe the way they do other than either blatant selfishness or a blind political stance bordering on religious zeal.

In any case I think the main reason the majority of people might have went with him on this issue has more to do with selfish self interest, everybody wants theirs, and the fact the people that only appeared to be effected seem like a relatively small group. It’s easy to shove something bad on a group like that if it seems to have a little benefit for oneself or it cost some sacrifices on ones part. Everybody can afford to be apathetic when something doesn't effect them...until it does, and it will, in ways that aren't immediately apparent, and then they will bitch and moan on the rooftops even if they really didn't give a damn when some negative thing was happening to somebody else. In essence it wasn't about what was right or wrong as much as it was about what path would cause people to sacrifice less for themselves. People took the easy way instead of the right way.
