I live here and I see Boortz is whistling past the cemetery or in denial. Many signed recall who had nothing to do with card check and not all who signed were in unions. There is a steady drum beat against Walker that is monolithic in media. Media assume recallers view is the narrative and they get all the favorable publicity. Polls show Walker losing to Falk, Barrett compared to last Fall. If Feingold gets in at last minute, forget it. Unions and Dems have poisoned the air we breathe. Toxic Kool Aid. is everywhere. Turn out is critical for victory. Unions and recallers are enthusiastic to vote. The rest of the public is more indifferent. I do not see any reason Walker should relax. The goons are roling strong right to polling places.

I don't know where you live, I do know MIlwaukee and Dane County's are the ones that always vote DemonRAT. But you can't tell what people stuck on stupid will do. Where I live we haven't seen a lot of Recall signs. Not like last summer when they went after the State Senators. Although i wonder if
Barrett jumped in because of the John Doe investigation that's being held in MIlwaukee at Scotts request when he was County Exec and the DemonRATS and Milwaukee/Sentinal/Pravda are twisting the story via leaks against Scott.

I hope Neil is right as well. I have many relatives and acquaintances that live and work in Wisconsin. Long story short. When visiting my mother's bar in Wisconsin, I brought up this topic and was damn near chased out of town. It wasn't pretty. Even my relatives were against anything I had to say. No matter that I could back my ideas with facts and stats. Literally, every person in the bar circled around me and a there were a few that I was physically intimidated by. Rather than start a fight in my parents establishment, I left. Haven't been back since. My own parents were part of the mob and did nothing to put an end to the situation. That is how strongly these people feel about their unions. Reason and facts be damned.

Hey I can believe it. Don't know what county your parents bar is in. But this is Paper country and unions are in them, the workers don't really understand they are nothing but money machines for the union so called leaders and the demonRAT party. My husband spent his working life in the paper industry here; his shop was a supplier to the industry specifically
equipment and repair of same for the machines and when he made calls to the mills he would be ticked that he had to stand around waiting for some electrician to come in and replace a fuse (one example). They don't realize the jobs are leaving the country because of the thugs running the unions and the lies they are fed.

Well, I think he can relax.  Pretty sure, actually.  

Governor Scott Walker is facing a recall election in Wisconsin as a result of a pretty impressive union petition drive.  Unions aren’t happy about losing some of their collective bargaining rights and actually having to pony up almost as much as private sector workers for their health insurance.  Oh! The humanity!  But I’m going on record here (oh yeah, Boortz on the record; now THAT’S news) saying that Scott Walker will win, as will the people of Wisconsin.

You’re right in wanting a little analysis here...
