Video: Walker, GOP senator rip fugitive Dem’s offer to meet at the border

posted at 5:30 pm on March 7, 2011 by Allahpundit

The giggle-inducing response to this morning’s surreal fleebagger offer for a covert meeting near an undisclosed location somewhere along the rough-and-tumble Wisconsin/Illinois border. Walker was comparatively restrained, as you’ll see. If it’s you-cannot-be-serious fireworks that you crave, read GOP Senate majority leader Scott Fitzgerald’s written reply:

Dear Senator Miller,

Thank you for your hand-delivered letter with an offer to meet, in Illinois, about the business and future direction of Wisconsin.

Let’s set aside how bizarre that is for a moment…

In the meantime, members of your caucus have been meeting with the governor’s staff, talking to the media, trying to find a way back to Madison, and contradicting your message in public. In case you don’t remember, you were present yourself at one of those meetings with the governor’s staff. Your grasp of reality, and control of your caucus as minority leader, continues to amaze me

Your stubbornness in trying to ignore the last election and protect the broken status quo is truly shameful. While we wait for you and your colleagues to finally show up, Senate Republicans continue to stand ready to do the job we were elected to do, here in Wisconsin. I hope you are enjoying your vacation, and your vacation from reality.

C’mon, it’s not Miller who’s controlling his caucus, it’s the left. Just as the right would go berserk if three GOP senators caved and agreed to vote no on the collective bargaining bill, liberals will wage war on any Democrats who split from the rest and come home to Madison to create a quorum. It would be the equivalent of crossing the picket line on one of the most important “strikes” they’ve ever organized. Fear of a recall election organized by progressives and of supplanting Scott Walker as “the new Hitler” or whatever is what’s keeping them in Illinois, not Mark Miller.

The good news, though? If there were any doubts about Republicans breaking ranks, this ought to put them at ease. The more ridiculous the fleebaggers get, the harder it is to vote with them.

Good for governor Walker! Don’t put up with their crap!

How the heck do you do crosswords with those little pictogram thingies?

Seriously, is she going to have that baby in Illinois? Would that make her a hero or a typical grandstanding liberal?

Great quote, by not very apropos here. You are dealing with an electorate, not crips and bloods. The people watching this debacle vote. Most don’t want to see nutsacks eviscerated. Alienation isn’t good.

The Republicans all need tutors in a: governing b: people skills c: communication

eaglesdontflock on March 7, 2011 at 6:45 PM

Geez, you’re such an loser for not believing that unnecessary alienation is good.

Clearly, you’re as ballsless as that wimpy Jesus guy was. If He really was God, why didn’t He just use His power and wipe out the Romans and His religious opponents out on the spot, huh? Instead, He stupidly talked about loving one’s enemies, and ended up letting Himself get nailed to a cross by the Romans like an idiot because of His cowardly pacifism.

I’m glad all of us on the Right who are attacking you know what a myth it is to believe that good diplomatic skills could ever help someone better promote her/his cause. Civility is so overrated! Why don’t you know this too, you dumbass?!

Have you been paying attention at all? The Democrats ran away, shirking the duties and obligations of their office.

Then they demand the sitting governor with a majority in both the state senate and assembly drive to the state border to confer with them.

If anyone is doing the alienating here, it ain’t Walker. It’s the “adults” who ran away like petulant children because they didn’t like losing.

Stop the bull and vote, and move on. Lets those toadie creeps stay where they are forever. I’m sick of this bull. Crap or get off the pot Walker, where are the b@lls in that state?

FUN THOUGHT:

Wouldn’t it be delicious if Walker and the cops pursued the pregnant fleebagger clear into Mexico…so that her newborn wouldn’t be a U.S. citizen??

landlines on March 7, 2011 at 11:45 PM

Excellent!

The only thing missing from this video that I would have liked to see was Walker crumpling up the letter as he was talking about how ridiculous it was.

UltimateBob on March 7, 2011 at 11:57 PM

Maybe the Governor should build a wall at the border….

percysunshine on March 8, 2011 at 7:39 AM

Looks like Miller went all-in with a pair of deuces. Did Governor Walker spot his tell?

SKYFOX on March 8, 2011 at 8:40 AM

Very unprofessional and immature letter from Fitzgerald. I don’t know why people can’t take the high road and cut the snark and arrogance.

No wonder they’re having problems, with communications like this. We need to be taking the high road, since they own the low road.

eaglesdontflock on March 7, 2011 at 6:01 PM

Oh, save it, concern troll. It’s nothing more than using the communist’s own tactics against them. And it’s high time the right takes the gloves off.

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

Looks like the left does not know how to respond to a Republican with a backbone.

Bizarro No. 1 on March 7, 2011 at 10:06 PM

Wow. Aggressive, much? You’re responding to an ongoing debate between two other commenters, but of that whole debate you are the one that stands out as the biggest a-hole. There’s a lesson in there somewhere, and it isn’t about Jesus and turning the other cheek.

Breathe already.

tickleddragon on March 8, 2011 at 8:32 PM

Hey, anybody notice that Walker has been negotiating with the Fab 14?

The erstwhile union buster is in a full panic. His hair is on fire. He’s going to fold like an old newspaper.

Hubris. Overreach. Too clever by half. Sic Semper Teabagger.

chumpThreads on March 8, 2011 at 9:26 PM

Perfect name for you. Yeah he released his e-mails to show he has been communicating with these fleebaggers. Yehh, He shouldn’t look like he is caving, and I don’t think he is. He is pointing out that the fleebaggers have no intention of negotiating.I think the republicans aren’t going too either.

I’m not exactly sure if you’re being over the top sarcastic or if you’re trying to use this to actually make a point. No matter, you simply have no clue as to why Jesus came to Earth if you wrote that in seriousness. He was born to die on that cross. Look it up.

Nope, not aggressive at all. But, you should take your own advice on aggression and breathing first before you laughably and misaccurately assess me if you want me to take you seriously, projector.

The lesson is the superiority of the Marshall Plan as opposed to the Treaty of Versailles. Are you smart enough to understand what the difference is? I’ll admit that I doubt it! :)

I didn’t believe I needed a sarc tag to indicate that I was mocking morons who cannot be bothered to understand that refraining from unnecessary punishment is not a sign of weakness; rather, it’s a sign of wisdom and strength.
