You’ve heard of a campaign exploratory committee?
Well, at recalldoyle.com you can see a recall exploratory effort in full bloom. Not a candidate campaign exploration, but an effort to recall a sitting official.
The site is titled the “Doyle Recall Exploratory Portal,” and organizers of the effort are serious about doing something about Wisconsin’s governor. The core of their argument is at the center of the page:
WHY RECALL DOYLE? Jim Doyle is the de facto CEO of a $30 billion dollar corporation we call the State of Wisconsin that is being rapidly run into the ground. The buck stops at the top. . . .
- Record Deficits – 4th Largest in the USA
- Massive Tax Increases Threaten Prosperity
- Radical Agenda Drives Away Business, Kills Jobs
. . . An unprecedented fiscal crisis demands bold and immediate action to save Wisconsin from certain financial ruin. The longer we wait, the more damage will be done. The clock is ticking!
If you support the idea of citizens taking control, when politicians go out of control, you can’t help but admire the intent here. And I, for one, wish the effort luck.
I confess, I don’t know everything about Governor Doyle. But knowing, as I do, the general run of the political mill, I’d bet money that the folks at Recall Doyle are doing their state a great service.
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.
