I would suggest if the GOP wish for any future in the state that they better short stop him themselves instead of supporting him.
That sure rings like a blast from the past, when those on the Right in Washington were told that if they wanted to have any future in Washington they needed to stop being the party of no, and needed to start working with Obama to bring America healthcare, stop global warming, save jobs with bailouts......all of this helpful advise was ignored, and the voters rewarded the GOP with control of the house. Even more damaging for DEMs the voters handed over many states to GOP control as well.

@hawkeye10,
We will see Hawkeye if the GOP can get away with this kind of behavior and remain in power.

@plainoldme,
No way for impeachment with the senate control by the GOP however a lot of the GOP senators can be recall now and such a movement is now happening and the good governor can be recall in a little less then a year.

Recall In Wisconsin?
Feb. 19 2011 - 5:42 pm | 10,118 views | 5 recommendations | 16 comments
By RICK UNGAR
It was only a matter of time until protestors in Wisconsin would begin to consider recalling legislators – and the Governor- in response to efforts to take away the collective bargaining rights of the state employee unions.

For Governor Walker, there is good news. The law in Wisconsin provides that an elected official may not be recalled until that official has served one year in office. That means it’s hands off Walker until January 2012. As for the state senate, one half of the full body is elected every two years, leaving one-half safe – the other half, not so much.

Among the sixteen senators who would be subject to recall, eight of them are Republicans who support the Governor’s bill that has caused all the furor.

Wisconsin law requires that a recall group (or individual) must file their intent and then gather the signatures of 25% of the total votes cast in the district during the preceding gubernatorial election for the office being challenged and do so within sixty days. If enough signatures are collected, the recall vote can take place within a few months.

Of the eight GOP state senators who would be subject to a recall action, three of them won their election with 51% of the vote or less. Were those three senators to be recalled and replaced with democrats, that would be all that is required to give control of the senate to the Democrats.What’s more, should the GOP senators in question feel enough heat from a recall effort, they might well decide that compromise is in order.

Don’t be surprised if we begin to see a lot of petitions circulating among the protestors in the days to come.

@H2O MAN,
You might have come across the following tidbit recently, H2O.

Only 5 states do not have collective bargaining for educators and have deemed it illegal. Those states and their ranking on ACT/SAT scores are as follows:

South Carolina, 50th/ North Carolina, 49th/ Georgia, 48th/ Texas, 47th/ Virginia, 44th

You'll notice your home state on that list, H2O. Wisconsin is currently ranked 2nd, and one of the reasons its people are so angry is that they don't want their children to grow up to be drooling water softener repairmen.

Politifact truth-o-meter takes a look at this and concludes that...

There is indeed something wrong with the education system of that state if the voters could allow such fools into power over them.

@Irishk,
Politifact is not a valid source of information. They are quite often biased and quite often simply wrong.

Politifact has been having trouble with their credibility lately -

The education system is controlled by liberal progressive democrats and their government worker unions, or what you call 'fools'.

@Cycloptichorn,
I think they mostly try to clarify based on facts, though, so I'll probably continue to use them as a resource for fact checking. I usually check the links they provide to back up their claims anyway. Do you think they have a political bias favoring one party over the other? I haven't seen much of that...yet.
