The unions are being sore losers. They need 540,000 signatures for a recall. I live in Dane Country (the liberal black hole of WI), and there are signature collectors on nearly every corner. Do I think they'll collect enough? Yes. Do I think they'll recall him? No. It's going to be Wisconsin vs. Dane Country if there is a recall election.
Just about every newspaper around here keeps saying that Walker is doing a terrible job, etc. If you look at the facts, he's saving the state money, putting schools on the right track, he even legalized concealed carry which Jim Doyle twice vetoed. But since when have facts mattered to liberals?
What this is, is unions lashing out to hold onto their control. Walker kicked out the public unions because they would not agree to contribute more to their own benefits, and rather wanted to rip off the taxpayers some more. People got tired of it when Doyle was governor, so they elected Walker. Plus they wanted to put in this public commuter train between Madison and Milwaukee, which would have raised everyone's taxes. And Doyle wanted to hire a foreign company and spend a ton of money to build it.
I've made a couple other posts in here about it all too which you should give a read...
