Quotes of the day; Update: Walker victory speech added

posted at 11:22 pm on June 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

The year-long saga of the Wisconsin recall is, at long last, over, and Scott Walker is still standing. The low-key Republican governor has withstood a sustained (and expensive) onslaught from the forces of Big Labor and its allies on the Left that featured everything from the coordinated cross-border retreat of intransigent Democratic lawmakers, to the occupation of the state house by a band of radicals, bongo drummers, and high school truants, to ill-fated attempts to nullify Republican legislative majorities and pick off uncooperative judges. Walker’s enemies did everything but release the kraken…

Scott Walker saved his job by being the adult in the room. While Democrats in Washington seem to be relying on their belief that the United States government is “too big to fail” to justify a program of taxing and spending our way out of debt, the states don’t have such a luxury. And so, across the country, in states red, blue, and purple, they have turned to men like Scott Walker — and Chris Christie, and Mitch Daniels, and others — to close structural deficits, stabilize out-of-control spending, and break the death embrace between Big Labor and Big Government. In taking this toxic partnership head on, in a state with a rich progressive history no less, Walker became its biggest target. His enemies spent a year and a half preparing to take their best shot at him. And a combined total of $100 million or so later, they missed. They missed because voters are starting to understand that governing through crisis requires someone willing to make unpopular choices, stand up to entrenched interests, and hold the line against loud and determined opposition.

Quite simply, Wisconsin voters realized that if they no longer had Scott Walker, they would have to invent him.

***

Mitt Romney just issued this statement, congratulating Scott Walker for his victory in tonight’s Wisconsin recall election:

“I congratulate Scott Walker on his victory in Wisconsin. Governor Walker has demonstrated over the past year what sound fiscal policies can do to turn an economy around, and I believe that in November voters across the country will demonstrate that they want the same in Washington, D.C. Tonight’s results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin. Governor Walker has shown that citizens and taxpayers can fight back – and prevail – against the runaway government costs imposed by labor bosses. Tonight voters said ‘no’ to the tired, liberal ideas of yesterday, and ‘yes’ to fiscal responsibility and a new direction. I look forward to working with Governor Walker to help build a better, brighter future for all Americans.”

***

Of course, Walker’s victory is about more than public sector unions. What Walker has demonstrated is that voters will ultimately reward politicians for showing political courage on the big issues if they have the resolve to see their policies implemented and watch them succeed. Enthusiasm for Walker among his supporters was off the charts because people are more willing to fight for a leader who has actually taken a stand. As the United States faces a looming fiscal crisis due to prior generations unwillingness to tackle runaway spending on the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, wobbly-kneed politicians in Washington should look to Walker’s triumph in Wisconsin for inspiration.

***

Confrontations between the people and organized labor aren’t new, but they have a way of translating to the national conversation. A single sentence arguably made Calvin Coolidge president: “There is no right to strike against the public safety by anybody, anywhere, any time.” It hit a nerve then, as it has now. I have seen conservative crowds give applause for presidents and political figures all over the country, but I have never seen them applaud as they do for Walker. That applause will only get louder now…

Walker’s reforms are nowhere near as severe as they’re made out to be, and they are less exportable than some might like. But branding this as the most important election of the year is not entirely wrong. Walker’s confrontation writ large is not with public sector unions, but with the dying Blue social model. It is one of the longest-lived coalitions in American politics, but one the White House is already letting slip – the marriage decision was a clear sign of that. Tonight’s Walker victory may prove to be its death knell.

***

The recalls began with anger over Walker’s stance on collective bargaining, but Democrats quickly changed the subject when it became clear that collective bargaining wasn’t a winning issue with voters, who had begun to see the positive results of reform.

But the public is smart — people understood that the Democrats’ constantly shifting issues were essentially a poker tell. The unions were trying to fill an inside straight, it was clear, while Walker pulled a new ace with every school district that praised his reforms. The fact that Dems attempted last-minute personal smears, they showed everyone exactly how far behind they thought they were. And on that count, they were right.

Now, the question becomes: With Walker’s victory, have Democrats blown any chance of beating him in 2014? Anyone gutsy enough to take him on had better be willing to tussle with a national star whose political courage will be the new standard in American politics.

***

Following his victory over Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Governor Walker thanked the voters for their support and focused on the future.

“Bringing our state together will take some time, but I hope to start right away,” Governor Walker said. “It is time to put our differences aside and figure out ways that we can move Wisconsin forward.”

Morning guys. I switched to FoxNews. Can’t watch when Mika is in charge.
I watched a little CNBC and there was a fun segment when the hosts made The New York Times John Harwood (Obama butt kisser) grovel and say he was wrong. Apparently he had promised a big Barrett come from behind.

cmsinaz on June 6, 2012 at 7:06 AM

It looks like they’re having a funeral this moring on MSLSD…Mika looks sick. I’m enjoying watching this for about 15 minutes for the laugh factor. The delusion is incredible.

Oh what a wonderful day it was. Due to the massive time zone difference of where I am I have been able to watch all the reaction all day.

I must say, this has been one of the better days to watch Lefties flip out.
The news over the next few days should be great to. Im really looking forward to see how little MSNBC covers this story.

money, money, money is how the left want to paint the victory. what about the ed shultz show? its essentially a media wing of the big unions. how about nbc,cbs, cnn etc. all the newspapers.

and the money? you have to be naive not to know that the unions put up triple the money under the table.

will our party ever say that? nope. don’t want to upset the independents.

renalin on June 6, 2012 at 7:29 AM

Where are the resident trolls at? I have a whole bag of salt and a gallon of lemon juice to rub into their wounds after last night’s devastating loss for Democrats, unions, and communists everywhere.

Congrats to Gov. Walker and the rest of the re-elected who survived this test with the approval of the voters of WI.

For the rest of us the lesson is clear: make sure you are registered to vote. Make sure your good friends are registered to vote, too.

Then get out and vote on election day.

Showing up matters and that means you must be registered and ready to vote.

WI was a win for registered voters who got out and voted.

America needs you to be registered to vote so your voice will have a say on election day.

bazil9 on June 6, 2012 at 8:10 AM

Sorry, but I ain’t buying your usual tripe with respect to the Obama-Romney exit poll data.

Michael Baron has a better analysis HERE.

The money quote;

It has been emblazoned on mainstream media that the exit poll also showed Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney in the state 51%-45%. But if you think the exit poll was 4% too Democratic—and that’s in line with exit poll discrepancies with actual vote results over the last decade, as documented by the exit poll pioneer, the late Warren Mitofsky*—that result looks more like 49%-47% Romney. Or assume the remaining Milwaukee County precincts whittle Republican Governor Scott Walker’s margin over Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to 53%-47%, which looks likely, the Obama-Romney numbers would look like 48%-48%.

My fear is that, even if Romney wins and the Republicans take both houses, this runaway debt and its systemic causes, is going to sink the Republic.

Speechlessness (or whistling past the graveyard) is a way I, and many people, find to cope with folks whose myriad warm-blooded human sufferings come out on a blog where cold politics is the norm.

Didn’t catch what your issue was.. Hope only the best for you. The wise words.. to make allowances for your friends since you never know what ailes them, or what they have to deal with..

I know this far better than I wish… You deal and live your life, not much else you can do. You also understand when your friends have an off day.

Best to all here who have medical or family issues… We’re all God’s children, even the most flawed like me.. Do well Bazil.. all the best to you and yours.

“Kill Scott Walker”: Angry libs flood Twitter with death threats after Wisconsin recall defeat

OmahaConservative on June 6, 2012 at 7:21 AM

The most maddening part..

If some group of conservatives did the same.. MSNBC would lead the evening news with it for a week. The president would personally condenm it and the left would go collectively nutz.. even more than usual.

as it is..

The MSM will ignore it.. even if criminal charges are filed. There were actual death threats by guys saying they would do it personally and target his wife and kids too. Not just the sordid “I hope he dies” types.. These were explicit threats, of the “I will” kind.

If they reside in Wisconsin, and make that kind of threat against their own governor.. there must be some kind of law broken.

Hollywood starlet, Amanda Bynes, arrested for DUI and appeals to the Barack Hussein Kardashian campaign for help.

“I don’t even drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me.”

Obviously, the cop was acting stupidly.

Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Sean Penn, and George Clooney all agree.
