On Wisconsin!

It appears that the residents of the great state of Wisconsin, yesterday, were successful in telling the far left and the labor unions that they've had enough!
On Wisconsin!

Right, out of state idiot! Wisconsin IS a great state.
Wrong, out of state idiot! The voters didn't quite do what you say, as one of the state senators was recalled. This means that the senate is now in the control of the Democrats who will put the kibosh on the failed policies of the right wing supply-side idiots who have dominated conservative thought over the last 30 years.
The voters actually *SHUT DOWN* the Koch/Walker machine.
Bob Lafollette is smiling in his grave. Wisconsin wins again!

Of course Wisconsin is a great state - it's got cheese and other stuff. But it also has a fair number of folks in denial. My advice: Don't count your chickens before the rooster crows:
"[June 6th] The recall race that will determine whether Democrats gain control of the Wisconsin state Senate or Gov. Scott Walker's fellow Republicans retain control of the full Legislature was too close to call Wednesday and appeared likely to remain that way for days. Unofficial returns from Tuesday's election in Racine's 21st Senate District showed Democratic challenger John Lehman leading incumbent Republican Sen. Van Wanggaard by less than 800 votes with all precincts reporting."

If the current count stands, the Democrats will have a majority in the Wisconsin senate. The senate, however, does not meet again until next January. In the meantime, 10 Democratic and six Republican seats will be up for election in November.
Of course Obama will be on the ballot in November and this may enable the Republicans to win all sixteen Wisconsin Senate seats on the ballot.
We'll have to be patient.

18% of those who voted for Walker also stated a preference for Obama. Obama leads in the polls in WI by ~11%. The reason for the Walker votes were not due to a belief in and a love of Scooter, but rather a belief that his intellectually challenged policies don't rise to the level of a recall.
Wisconsin is a state that believes in fairness. Too bad Scooter never learned that, or he wouldn't rape the poor and cripple the future to feed his corporate overlords. Do you know that for a $28 million investment, Scooter kicked back over $300 million in taxpayer monies to his campaign contributors?
Now that's some serious payback.
And Obama's gonna kick Mitten's ass all the way back to the finishing school where he failed ethics and civics. Guy lies more than a rug. All the freaking time. What the hell is with him anyway? I guess if all you got is lies, that's what you go with. 100,00 jobs created by him at Bain? Really? He's never substantiated that.
Oh, yeah, Scooter, speaking of jobs, you are way the hell behind the 250,00 jobs you promised us. Where are they, you lying piece of GOP?
And what is it with the Republicans screaming about jobs all during the last Congressional/Senatorial elections and then all they do is put forth bills on abortion? Where the hell are the jobs bills? Did they already fix the unemployment problem?

You raise some good points. See imbedded comments.

Right. The exit polls said Walker-Barrett at 50-50 and Obama leading Romney 53-45.

Well he sure wouldn't kickback $300 million to those who supported Barrett, now would he?

I didn't know Romney failed ethics and civics. On the other hand, Obama probably failed lunch, but we'll never know because Obama declines to release his college transcripts.

I think he promised a significant number of jobs during his first term. He still has 2-1/2 years to go. Once all the controversy stops and businesses can depend on the future, perhaps they'll start hiring.

Um, the Republicans have passed eighteen "jobs" bills in the House (as of October 2011), none of which have been taken up by the Senate. Conversely, The Obama administration denied the Keystone oil pipline project that would have put a signifcant number of folks to work.
As for abortion, the Republican DID introduce a bill to prohibit abortions for the sole purpose of sex selection. Democrats refused to support the bill, and it died in the House. http://www.gop.gov/policy-news/11/10/27/summary-of-jobs-bills-stalled
Meanwhile, in mid-March, the Wisconsin Assembly passed a bill banning abortion coverage under the impending Affordable Care Act. To quote one pundit: "Wisconsin is a state that believes in fairness." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/14/wisconsin-abortion-sex-education-bills-pass_n_1345873.html
