Quotes of the day

posted at 10:58 pm on April 6, 2011 by Allahpundit

“Democrats here trumpeted the outcome as the beginning of the end for Mr. Walker and the Republicans who swept into control of the state in November. ‘What the vote showed is that people really woke up to Walker’s agenda,’ State Senator Chris Larson, a Democrat, said on Wednesday. ‘And I’d say they’re only getting warmed up.’

“But while anti-Walker forces certainly turned out in remarkable numbers on Tuesday, others did too: a similar number of conservative-leaning voters. State officials had predicted a 20 percent turnout for the usually sleepy springtime election, but more than 30 percent of voters statewide wound up casting ballots (some polling places ran out of ‘I voted’ stickers)…

“‘The Democrats and the unions threw everything they had at that election and the silent majority of voters turned out and beat them back,’ said Scott Fitzgerald, the Republican leader in the State Senate. ‘I’m very pleased with these results.’

“What seems beyond debate, though, is that Wisconsin voters have rarely been quite so split, so worked up, so mad.”

***
“‘What it shows is Wisconsin is essentially a purple state,’ said John McAdams, associate professor of political science at Marquette University and a conservative blogger.

“McAdams called the race ‘a referendum on Scott Walker’s policy agenda, with very, very large national implications,” ending in ‘almost an even standoff’ between Walker opponents mobilized by unions and liberal organizations for Kloppenburg and Walker supporters mobilized by talk radio and conservative television advertising for Prosser.

“This election ‘proved Wisconsin is not just a battleground state or a swing state,’ agreed Mordecai Lee, professor of governmental affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a former Democratic legislator. ‘It’s the ultimate 50-50 state.’”

But to make the jump that it meant the extreme that they thought the GOP was reactionary and overreaching is a BIG jump and you can’t say it with any sort of certainty.

miConsevative on April 7, 2011 at 12:16 AM

You may be right. But where were these union goons when Walker got elected?

Also, the furor started when Walker and the GOP started coming down on the PEUs and singling out the teachers. If a balanced budget is to be had, then fine, balance it. Deal with the unions later on once fiscal progress is made and voters can experience the exhilaration of fiscal sanity in their state. Do something great that people are more likely to accept and then lay down the foundation necessary to convince folks that closed shop PEUs are unjust to workers.

Voters were probably already nervous about state budget cuts to begin with. Attacking unions in a northern state at the same time is not really wise.

Dr. ZhivBlago on April 7, 2011 at 12:27 AM

It’s not enough to just write those voters off as “stupid” or whatever, but rather to examine why they voted this way.

Dr. ZhivBlago on April 7, 2011 at 12:08 AM

Why?

Because they like socialism thats why!

You get other people stuff and you don’t have to do anything to get it except vote once a year. Its not complicated. Someone spins a sad story and they vote even more free stuff for them too, because that way they can feel good about themselves and it doesn’t cost them a thing.

Pretty soon everyone is sniveling and crying about how they too deserve some goodies because just look how pitiful they are. Everyone wants to be a victim because you get sympathy, attention and cash.

Of course someone has to pay for all that ‘free’ stuff. Thats the taxpayer or the corporation. People aren’t stupid and they catch on pretty quick that other people are going to get a lot of what you worked hard to get. Increasing numbers of them say ‘to heck with this I am a victim too’ or they just stop working that hard. The corporations try to remain profitable by shipping the jobs overseas or avoiding taxes by bribing politicians to write favorable laws.

Pretty soon you have an ever increasing debt with more and more people clamoring for their piece of the pie and the politicians who make a career of pandering to them aren’t going to suddenly turn around and tell them that they can’t have any more candy. Sometimes one of them tries like Walker and the shocked little dears stare with big tearful eyes at the meanie who took their Binky away and then they dutifully troop off to the voting booth to put a fix on his little red wagon.

That is what happened and it isn’t terribly complicated.

Trying to coo little Junior into giving up his Binky isn’t going to work because he is a 40 year infant who has never had to survive on his own labor. He isn’t going to go quietly into the night. He’s going kicking and screaming with broken windows and violence.

We are out of money and out of time.

As I understand it, the PEUs were the reason the budget couldn’t be balanced. They pushed back on Walker. I don’t recall that Walker threw this in their faces.

You know how people can be incited and that’s what Organizing for America and the unions did.

Got 10 acres of woods behind my house (one of the many ‘nature areas’ the greenies demand out here – this one definitely works to my advantage), 100 nuns living up the road and I teach in the greatest school in the world, so I can’t complain. It does get old hearing all the Detroiters on the news demanding state money then complaining when the state tells them what to do. It’s really a lost cause there.

miConsevative on April 6, 2011 at 11:45 PM

It sounds like you have a nice slice of paradise. It is what you make of it.

What is certain about events in Wisconsin, and Michigan, and even here, is the proliferation of public union demands on the public to pay up or else. The or else, doesn’t turn out so good in the sort or long run. It does create a servitude for both the union membership and the taxpayer.

No matter where you go, there you are.

I guess that’s why GOD invented WalMart.

You’re right, the entitlement mentality is hard to rid once you start giving stuff away.

Once people have to fed for themselves, they do fine. If they don’t, then that’s why Humans invented charity.

And WalMart is non-Union. Kinda like Lucifer’s nemesis, only with a smiley face, low prices, and interesting people.

Its insanity to not demand a recount.

The only issue is, how many honest vote counters are there?

Vince on April 7, 2011 at 12:36 AM

Sure they did, but somehow they got enough disinterested (non-union) voters to make the race close even with probable Dem voter fraud.

I maintain that the unions should not have been given a cause celebre in the first place. The State controls the purse strings just as any employer does, and all but the hardheads get that.

Yup. Its not just the left either. Far too many on the right have gotten used to government grants and money in one form or another. In many cases these are things that arose because government displaced private alternatives. You mention charity and that is certainly an area where government has driven out the churches and other organizations.

I think its going to take a hard crash before people come to their senses. I only hope they don’t go with a form of national socialism, or communism which will promise and delivery equality of misery.

WOW.

A Wisconsin reader sent this in:

Vicki McKenna (radio host) in Madison/Milwaukee is gathering information on widespread voter fraud/tampering in Wisconsin Supreme Court election.

Vicki took several calls today on her program from voters who described many voting discrepancies, disenfranchisement, ballot shredding, UW students voting more than once, etc. We cannot trust that the mainstream media will pick up on this, so I’d be grateful for your help.

No, I really don’t think I am.

extremist ideology and rhetoric

Reactionary policies

ranting and demonizing

big mouths and irrational attacks

You go on and on about these things with nothing to back them up because there is nothing irrational or reactionary about what conservatives are saying.

You want to believe that your precious ‘moderates’ and ‘independents’, who are sane and rational can be argued out of a position they were never argued into. Its all emotion and greed with most of them. They won’t do what needs to be done until they personally are hurt by the policies they support and even then will only do so reluctantly.

There is no extremism, no reactionary policies except on the part of the left. It only seems scary to you because of the far leftward drift of the nation over the decades. John F Kennedy would be one of those extremist reactionaries if he were alive today.

I understand to a certain degree people being upset. They pay for government and get some services but due to the bureaucratic growth and inefficiency they are then tapped again and again for more money resulting in fewer services.

What they are never told is that they could have just kept their money, left the transport system in private hands and they would have both the money for the trip and better service. Some of course just want something free and they unfortunately are the loudest voices.

No real values, no real ideals, just going with the flow. They want us to play with both hands tied behind our backs so as not upset the delicate sensibilities of the moderates/independents.

Gotta be honest….when I’m on business travel and have a potential itinerary routing flights through Minneapolis, I choose other routes that connect in other cities…..don’t want the taint of Minnesota stupidity to infect me. Fortunately, I never see flights routed through Milwaukee, so that’s not an issue.

Starting with Obama, liberals put in place a new requirement for public office: “No experience required”.

Now this doesn’t mean that you can run for office even if you have no experience. It means that you can’t run for office if you do.

- “Do you have experience for the position you’re applying for?”
- “Yes”
- “Sorry, then you’re not qualified as no experience is required.”
- “But I have experience so it makes me more qualified!”
- “No, it doesn’t because no experience is required.”
- “Excuse me? What?”
- “Next in line!”
