Writing On The Wall For Obama After Failed Recall
Well, this could change everything. Wisconsin ramps up the third recall of an
elected Governor in American history and the unions pull out all the stops to
support it…and it fails. 36 percent of
union households in the state even voted to keep Governor Scott Walker.
President Obama recognizes that the election

And he did it while cutting property taxes and creating a business-friendly environment that has produced more than 35,000 new jobs since he took office. All this makes Walker the national poster child for taming out of control budgets."
