Video: The Wisconsin recall scorecard?

posted at 1:21 pm on April 10, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

The unions have succeeded in putting Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s recall on the ballot in June, but perhaps less well known is that his running mate Rebecca Kleefisch is included in that recall, along with a handful of legislators. The Republican Lieutenant Governors Association (RLGA) has begun an ad buy in Wisconsin defending Kleefisch’s performance — and necessarily Walker’s as well — by reminding Wisconsin voters that the new administration has made exactly the kind of progress Walker and Kleefisch promised in 2010:

That looks like a pretty strong record of accomplishment — and the budget fix couldn’t have come without the PEU reforms that prompted the recall. If Wisconsin voters undo the 2010 election, it might be the first time in American history that a governor and lieutenant governor got kicked out of office for balancing a budget while cutting taxes and lowering unemployment. It will take some fancy footwork and a united Democratic front to make that sale.

Unfortunately for Democrats and the unions, that’s exactly what they don’t have.  TPM covers the internecine food fight being fueled by the unions in Wisconsin:

[Kathleen] Falk picked up the endorsements of two top public employee unions, AFSCME and the teachers union WEAC, as well as many other liberal groups — aided by the fact that she had been involved in the protests and the recall campaign all throughout the previous year.

As soon as Barrett got into the race, on the other hand, AFSCME immediately began going after him — accusing him of being complicit in the passage of Walker’s anti-union legislation. Barrett has feuded with the unions for some time on city issues, and they had attempted to dissuade him from entering the recall campaign. And now, AFSCME has also circulated a YouTube video, which they say they did not create but to agree with, which contained questionably edited audio to give the appearance that Barrett approved of the bill.

Now in response, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, the head of a state police union is slamming AFSCME.

“This recall election represents an historic opportunity for Wisconsinites to reclaim this state in favor of a leader who can create jobs, protect our local services and restore the right to have a voice at the bargaining table,” said Jim Palmer, executive director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association. “For anyone to sink to the level of distorting the information it sends to its own members is shameful, and it creates the kind of internal discord that Scott Walker will need to keep his office.”

AFSCME has retreated a little from its harsh criticism, but not by a lot.  Philip Klein at the Washington Examiner predicts a lot of problems for whoever wins the primary:

Obviously, there are always different schools of thought as to whether a tough primary strengthens or weakens a nominee. If the primary merely is really an argument about who is more opposed to Walker, it may not hurt Democrats and could perhaps even help. For instance, if Barrett wins the primary and emerges looking more moderate than Falk – as somebody who is less beholden to unions and more willing to work with the Republican-controlled legislature – it could help with swing voters. But if the primary starts to get more personal and drives up each candidates’ negatives, it may be harder to recover in the mere four weeks before the recall election against Walker.

Indeed — perhaps especially so, considering that the Democrats will have to run against a balanced budget, lower taxes, and more jobs.

Funny how easy it is to get someone to sign a recall petition.

Even funnier is going to be when the people vote for Walker again, not having to worry about intimidation from petitioner and his friends.

Same thing is starting again with Snyder in Michigan and for the second time. Dumbasses never learn.

Since liberals just don’t seem to have the capacity to embrace any form of common sense, I truly hope that they keep continuing their race towards completing this utter and devastating FAIL.

Oh and the usual race card rhetoric along with corruption.

Given the recent votes in Wisconsin, it seems unlikely Walker could lose unless the Democrats have some better argument or propaganda than they have had so far. Yet, I’m sure that the Wisconsin MSM is driving home the Leftist talking points. Could their constant repetition of half-truths and distortions be enough for Walker to lose?

later on April 10, 2012 at 1:30 PM

That’s why I pretty much stopped signing petitions long ago.

It’s one thing if I get a petitioner knocking on my door. I might have the time to read what they’re petitioning and determine whether I agree with it or not, thus sign it. It’s something else to have a petitioner stop me when I’m out shopping. I don’t have the time or inclination to listen to you, even if I’d agree with you.

Besides, between the way a State Sec., the individuals proposing the bill/move and others can write the things… sometimes I’m still not sure whether I agree.

One strategy the Democrats have been using in the Wisconsin legislature is to block any bills that might improve the jobs and economic situation in the state in order to prevent any improvement on Walker’s watch. That is upsetting the industrial unions, particularly when a large mining project was shut down by Democrats that cost a miners’ union some 5000 jobs.

I’m concerned about a “Bush fatigue” effect taking place – eventually, people just got sick of defending him after eight years of unceasing attacks. One thing the Democrats are trying to do in Wisconsin is exhaust the base’s energy by constantly attacking Walker, forcing new elections, etc until they start winning. I’m convinced Walker is in much more danger than many Republicans think, and if he loses, it’s going to be used as another excuse by the Party to lurch even further to the left.

The similarity of Wisconsin to a bratty teenager is remarkable. As we all know whenever you try to give advice to a teenager they know it all, already and consider you a fool for thinking that they need your help. If the taxpaying people of Wi. allow this recall to succeed then they, like the bratty teenager, deserve any and all of what they get. I know the unions are sending in money and getting help from union members who are on the Wi. public payroll but this is such a no brainer that no taxpaying person would even consider voting for the recall.

Dick Cheney is a War Criminal on April 10, 2012 at 2:00 PM

Fixed.

WI Unemployment Rate when Walker took office: 7.7%

Now: 6.9%

I would ask you for credible multi-sourced cites to prove your claim that WI is “bleeding good paying jobs” but know that you can’t be bothered with Facts.

Most of those lost “good paying jobs” you’re whining about were public sector jobs.

Wisconsin shed 14,500 public-sector jobs during Walker’s first thirteen months. That was the fifth-biggest decrease among 50 states in terms of total jobs lost, and the second biggest decrease in percentage terms (3.5%) after Texas.

In Walker’s first year in office (ending last December), Wisconsin had the 49th worst record for private-sector job growth, losing 9,700 jobs. But preliminary January numbers released last week were the best of any month so far of the Walker tenure: private-sector jobs rose by 15,700. That now puts the state in the positive column for net private job growth during the governor’s first 13 months, with 6,000 jobs added.

Democrats, especially the unions, can’t stand success when it means that they can’t have everything they want. They would rather the state go bankrupt than not get their own way. It remains to be seen if the people of the state of Wisconsin are smart enough to see the unions don’t care about the state as a whole but only about themselves. If my relatives in Wisconsin are an example, they don’t see this at all.

Kaukauna Area School District projects $1.5 million surplus after contract changes to health care, retirement savings

http://www.postcrescent.com/article/20110629/APC0101/110629072/Kaukauna-Area-School-District-projects-1-5-million-surplus-after-contract-changes-health-care-retirement-savings

The savings drawn from public employee contributions to the retirement system is estimated to hit $283.7 million, according to the Legislative Fiscal Bureau.

http://legis.wisconsin.gov/lfb/Pages/default.aspx

At the outset of the public-union standoff, educators had made dire predictions that Walker’s reforms would force schools to fire teachers. In February, to take one example, Madison School District Superintendent Dan Nerad predicted that 289 teachers in his district would be laid off. Walker insisted that his reforms were actually a job-retention program: by accepting small concessions in health and pension benefits, he argued, school districts would be able to spare hundreds of teachers’ jobs. The argument proved sound. So far, Nerad’s district has laid off no teachers at all, a pattern that has held in many of the state’s other large school districts. No teachers were laid off in Beloit and LaCrosse; Eau Claire saw a reduction of two teachers, while Racine and Wausau each laid off one. The Wauwatosa School District, which faced a $6.5 million shortfall, anticipated slashing 100 jobs—yet the new pension and health contributions saved them all.

The benefits to school districts aren’t just fiscal, moreover. Thanks to Walker’s collective-bargaining reforms, the Brown Deer school district in suburban Milwaukee can implement a performance-pay system for its best teachers—a step that could improve educational outcomes.

Create jobs… ok.
Protect local services… by making sure the budget can afford them, right?
Restore the right to have a voice at the bargaining table… so taxpayers have a voice as well as government union members?

So they’re rallying the recall for Walker and they’re replacing him with Walker?

Oh, they’re trying to slow the economy, lose jobs, make local services less stable by not having a sustainable budget to pay for them, and ONLY allow Government Union Members at the bargaining table… effectively making things worse for everyone in order to line their own pockets.

Yeah… Now I can see why they went with a convoluted lie on that one.
