Wis. GOPer: If You Don't Like What We Did, Wait For 2012 Instead Of Recalling Me


In addition, Darling stated in stark terms that the recalls are not truly about state finances, but a political battle centered around President Obama's 2012 chances.

"This is about the Obama election," said Darling. "Obama cannot win unless he wins Wisconsin. That's why you see all this money in here. That's why you see all the arrows and guns pointed at me. Because we had the audacity to take on the special interest groups and say, you know what? We are Wisconsin and we will stand up for the people and we'll stand up for the elections that said, 'get control of the spending and the debt and your deficit and put us on the right track to grow jobs.' We did it and for that, they're trying to take us out."
