Well at least the legislature flipped and Walker's essentially a lame f*ck.

the media called the election and gave the win to the crooked governor in WI; thats how that happened. we have to face this.. same tactic that gave of george bush. we have got to face this and not play their game with their lies. we must face and confront this. it is our reality in america. corporate media. people power works and they went to their other tricks in the bag. the media.

Walker should not have been allowed to receive so much money from the Kochs and other right-wing rich bastards. I don't understand how they collected 900,000 signatures against him and he is still the governor. Of course, I still don't understand how Rick Scott became the governor of Florida either.

unions brought in people from other states to picket they couldn't do that for the election so the real people of wi got their say. unions have out priced themselves and the tax payers are tired of paying. obama is owned by the unions and has never tried to hide it. this won't help him in nov at all. obama's base is crumbling and lets hope it keeps falling apart.

It was a big win for millionaires and billionaires who are taking advantage of the Citizens United ruling to fund a media blitz to influence voters. I still can't believe the people of Wisconsin chose to keep the Koch brothers' favorite lap dog in the Governor's mansion.
