Former Wisconsin Congressman David Obey: "It is apparent to me that if the Governor does not engage in meaningful compromise, he will be recalled. Because when you go after the jugular, and try to put workers out of business, that is when they will mean business in the way they respond."

Recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker?

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Absolutely, he must be recalled. He is certainly out of touch with life and the need for education, systems to make all citizens the right to live a decent life with collective bargaining as a right. "I have been bought and paid for by corporative power" seems to be his personal mantra. He is a product of the Peter Principle.

Gov. Walker is supposed to work on furthering interests and bettering lives of people of Wisconsin, not just toe the line re...the Koch brothers' agenda. RECALL!

The Governor is too extreme for Wisconsin or any other state. He is not being honest. He hoped to take advantage of a budget deficit, manufactured in part by his tax cuts for the wealthy, to push his conservative agenda. That is not why he was elected and should be recalled.

Absolutely he should be recalled. Right after he serves his sentence for selling out to Koch brothers.

I frankly do not support Govenor Walker. I am ashamed to say that I live part of the year in WI. It seems that the state government here buried it's head in the sand to ignore the economic situation that the nation and state was dealing with and now is trying to play catch up. The state government should have for seen the budget issues that would arise and taken preventive measures to make sure that it did not get into the situation that it now faces. I come from a union family. I believe that working groups in this nation deserve the freedom of collective bargaining just as much as they deserve free speech and the right to bear arms. Yes the union's should be sensible and realize that concessions need to be made. Only with the backing of corporate america could a man with only a limited educational background and little political experience be elected into office. Of course he will listen to those who put him into office and not the people who he is supposed to represent. The voters in this state should have the opportunity to recall a govenor who does not represent them, who wants to take away an American freedom, who does not appear to honestly want to go back to the table and listen to the Democratic party with the intent of reaching a compromised solution to the state of the ecomomy and the rights of the citizens.

Ithink I may have already signed this petition. I definitely favor the recall just as soon as his year in office is up.
