Wisconsin Focused on Possible Recall of Governor Scott Walker

Monday, April 02, 2012

Tomorrow's primary in Wisconsin is an important one for Mitt Romney, who is looking for a boost that will secure the GOP presidential nomination. But the presidential primary takes a back seat for Wisconsin citizens, who are more focused on the questions surrounding Republican Governor Scott Walker. Governor Walker made national headlines last year for advocating a steep cut in benefits and collective bargaining rights to state workers, and now is only the third governor in the history of the U.S. to be up for recall.

So a governor who knew the state was going broke had the courage to make modest cuts to public unions which are unions that even FDR opposed is up for recall yet the politicians who ran from the state to avoid the duties of their office are heroes?
Is the recall option being grossly politicized and abused by the left after their squalid tantrum last year?
