Scott Walker wins Recall

In Wisconsin yesterday, the spoiled children of the public unions found out that 2.5% of the population is NOT a winning majority! The unions of state employees actually thought that because they got the recall on the ballot, that they'd also win.  If that was the case every elected office in the country would be filled with a committee now, wouldn't it!?
Gov. Scott Walker, fresh from becoming the nation's first governor to survive a recall election, wants to go about mending Wisconsin's political divide in an egalitarian way: over brats and beer.

Walker defeated Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Tuesday for the second time in year and a half, turning back a recall effort that began with the collection of more than 900,000 signatures seeking his ouster. It was only the third gubernatorial recall in U.S. history.

Walker planned to invite all members of the Legislature to meet as soon as next week over burgers, brats and "maybe a little bit of good Wisconsin beer."

"The first step is just bringing people together and figuring out some way if we can thaw the ice," he said.

Democrats, including Barrett, pledged to work together too. But the wounds are deep following the rancor of the recall, which was spurred by Walker's surprise proposal to go after public employee unions.

"It is up to all of us, their side and our side, to listen. To listen to each other," Barrett said.

State Rep. Peter Barca, Democratic minority leader in the Assembly, said healing Wisconsin won't be easy.

"I hope Gov. Walker understands and stays true to his pledge to build consensus and be more inclusive going forward," Barca said.
 Seriously?  Rep. Barca thinks the Governor needs to build consensus, and the DEMOCRATS are going to 'force' him into it?  If they were about consensus, then WHY did they just cost the state money on a recall election?!  Why did they fight  him tooth and nail for the last 18 months?  Why have they repeatedly said he's delusional and ignored the numbers getting better in the state?
Personally I think he ought to kick them to the curb.  Or at a minimum, keep making the point, that the Democrats caused the budget shortfalls, and tthey fought him to continue making big government even bigger in Wisconsin.
Here's hoping he breaks it off in their...vestibule.

Hopefuly, this win will drive a stake through the heart of the communist controlled labor movement. IMO, organized labor has done far more than it's share to bring this country to it's financial knees.

I saw the results of an interesting poll yesterday on ABC news. (of all places) They polled 1000 people, and found that when asked, 68% said they "would not join a union", and that they would prefer to work in a non-union job.

Did you, by any chance, hear the idiots from the unions last night?

Talk about whining and crying. OY! One clown said he hopes 'Walker' is happy, killing people like this! (I'm pretty sure it was the VOTERS who supplied the winning votes...Walker's not a Dem, he let the people vote, he didn't make it up!)

This other boob said, "...I hope people are paying attention...what we've seen here tonight is the death of Democracy in America!"

Seriously? Well good, we don't WANT a Democracy, we are a Republic!

hen there was the schmuchk who said they lost because they were out spent by Walker. Really? And that from the party that said they could win 2012 BECAUSE they planned on spending $1B, or however much more it would take to get the victory!

Go ahead, make my election!

Here's the part I truly hate about the Left. If ANY vote goes their way, by 2%, 10% or 105% it's a clear mandate from the people! But no matter HOW big or small the Left's losses are, it's because of theft, lies, we were outspent, blah, blah, blah, what a crock of crap.

So it's OK that 115% of the registered voters in Milwaukee voted last night? And it's OK for Dems to spend all the money they can find, but the Republicans are bad guys for doing the same thing? And it's OK to be a State Union Spokesman, but NOT know what form of government we have? (I'm guessing he's an ex-teacher!)

I can't wait for the bottom to fall out! I'll be glad to see the Zombies eating the legs off these fools!

What you were seeing is the Left using two of it's most reliable weapons. Lies and hysteria.
