Glad to see that Obama got a bloody nose in Wisconsin and it looks like Bubba Bill Clinton is on the case!
Gov. Scott Walker, fresh from becoming the nation’s first governor to survive a recall election, wants to go about mending Wisconsin’s political divide in an egalitarian way: over brats and beer. Walker defeated Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Tuesday for the second time in year and a half, turning back a recall effort that began with the collection of more than 900,000 signatures seeking his ouster. It was only the third gubernatorial recall in U.S. history.
Here’s how the BBC were trailing this result just a short while ago…
“A rare recall election in the US state of Wisconsin that is being seen as a key test ahead of the general election is deadlocked, exit polls show. Republican Governor Scott Walker faces Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett more than a year after he passed a law limiting workers’ collective bargaining rights.”
Walker won with a bigger majority than when Hollande beat Sarkozy or when Obama beat Bush but hey, let’s not focus on that!
Meanwhile….Bill Clinton has said that those Bush tax cuts that Obama opposes so vehemently should be..extended!
