The Lesson from Wisconsin? If We Don’t Surrender, Democrats Lose!

This is an excellent analysis of the Wisconsin recall election from The Blue Collar Muse

Last night’s recall votes in Wisconsin were both historic and profound. Historic in that Progressives redefined yet another political feature; the recall. Now it is a club with which to savage politicians for a vote you don’t like. Profound in its implications for the 2012 elections.

The record is clear in Wisconsin. For decades, public sector unions have enjoyed collective bargaining resulting, as always, in increased costs to taxpayers. The overall damage to Wisconsin was ignored until voters woke up and elected a Republican Governor who promised fiscal reform and specifically campaigned on these sorts of issues for years. Scott Walker was elected and Democrats lost.(link)
