The only way I'm not voting for Governor Scott Walker again is if he decides to throw his hat in the GOP scramble for president. I'd take Walker for either one--on second thought Wisconsin needs him more right now.
Yeah, I wasn't too happy with them after the primary snafu. I've been busy trying to stay informed here in WI so I haven't had time to read too much re: the subject. It's a full time job just trying to stay one step ahead (or at least in step with) the hyjinks going on in my state!
Scott Walker also appeared on Greta/Fox:
Being stuck near a TV running MSNBC all day hasn't killed me yet. But you do learn something. All day long they were going on about how they got One Million Signatures. Naturally it's "unprecidented."
They lead with that, then follow up with "This is going to be a National Election, really, and the Republicans are going to put incredible amounts of money into it. But this has been a real grass roots effort, so how can we expect to deal with all of that money the Republicans are going to throw at it?"
Grass Roots? Bussed-in union members, more likely.
All that outside money? Lardy, lardy, lardy, is Ed Shultz having fun with that. Any bets on how much union money will be pouring in?
Right now, Walker supporters are donating heavily. I'll sure send some money to him. They lead the Opposition nearly 5-to-1 in dollars. BUT, and it's a huge "BUT" that Ed has...
...overlooked: The opposition can't raise money in large amounts without a candidate to hold fundraisers. When they dragoon someone to run against Walker, you bet the money will flow. From your tax dollars, into union coffers, then into political campaigns to force your representative out of office.
Nothing corrupt about that practice, if you believe the Shame Pigs.
I hope you're right! We shall see. I still believe that Good triumphs over Evil every time. I know in the End, He will crush evil. I am just impatient...
Southern IN is prettiest - rolling hills, best parks, nicest people. But beware - you're likely to pick up a twang in your speech :) I live in Indianapolis, which is a great little city. Big enough to have all you want/need, but small enough to feel safe. It's clean & very Patriotic.
Indiana is getting ready to go "Right to Work." Our dimocrat babies are trying to throw a tantrum about it, but they are so far outnumbered by Conservative Republicans that it's pretty much a done-deal. Our Man Mitch (Gov Daniels) has been great for the state & is set to be replaced by another great Conservative, Mike Pence. Winter weather stinks, but Spring, Summer, & Fall are nice. :)
I think it might say that Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler live in Wisconsin... You heard that the voting boards were accepting all signatures - ridiculous as they need to be. If they don't think they can win, they just cheat. They're not even being sneaky about it... Disgusting.
Forget that - come to Indiana! 4 seasons, great Governor, low taxes, nice people, Payton Manning - what else do you need?! :)
Gov. Walker is such a righteous,uplifting role model for what an elected official should be. I hope God himself will dash those evil progs off a cliff and let the light of Walker shine on Wisconsin. Man, can you imagine him on immigration after he's done with the unions? My fantasy.
You mean it's not just a coincidence that our children's test scores having been consistently dropping while teacher's wages have been consistently rising ever since Jimmy Carter created the department of education? Hmmm. Call me old fashion but where I come from, the private sector, we get paid more the BETTER we do and if we don't do our jobs we get fired. I'm glad your with us Anne. I hope your standing up and speaking out about it.
My time in the northwoods is limited anyway. Our youngest is almost done with HS and will be either heading to college or the Marine Corps - or college and then the Marine Corps... Virginia and South Carolina are on our short list of states we're interested in. We love the RTW states ~
It says the same thing about WI voters that Ohio voters said about themselves... Can't see the forest for the trees ~
It also means I & family pack up and leave. I have no intention of pouring my tax dollars into a state that works actively on it's own destruction.
the RNC has been calling me asking for money lately. I told them I donate to people like Scott Walker who actually do something.
Boehner, McConnell, and the rest of the GOP congressional clowns and appeasers can stick it.
Governor Walker needs to get the Virginia GOP up there to go through all those signatures.
They will throw half of them out!
Go, Scott, Go!!! TGFSW!
Love the guy - he is really ticking the progressives off up here in lala land. :-)
heh! First my boyfriend Levin this morning now, my bRoTha from aNoTha mOtHa , Rush.
Your two for two scoop!
