Now that the recall election is over at a cost of some $150 million or so from taxpayers, unions, private citizens, fat cats, special interests, etc. what has been accomplished? The standard answer seems to be "Status Quo." with Governor Walker retaining his post. I beg to disagree. I’m persuaded that the character of the American voter throughout the country has changed. What started out with a roar in a fit of pique on the part of some Wisconsinites to recall the Governor because they didn’t like his policies, ended with a whimper with the realization that it was dead wrong to utilize a recall function unless malfeasance in office was the reason.
