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.”

I heard that Wisconsin was easily influenced by well funded right wing radicals that spent heavily in the state. And I heard that Obama’s hoping that Romney spends heavily in the state because he doesn’t have a chance.

Has to be one or the other, folks. Which one are you going to settle on once the shock wears off?

Well, it’s good to see that Walker was able to beat the margin of fraud that the democrats tried. Hopefully people were taking notes of what to watch for in the general elections.

Let’s see, crumpled cable bill is good enough ID for one person to vote. Another with an out of state drivers license who claimed residency was still able to register and vote on the same day. That crap isn’t helping the franchise, it is disenfranchising honest voters.

Voter ID is critical to maintaining free and fair elections.

Yes this bought and paid for victory stinks for the middle class but it’s all good.

Uppereastside on June 6, 2012 at 12:27 AM

How many times must you be told that Democrats and the Left do NOT represent the middle class?

The middle class voted for McCain over Obama by 20 points in 2008. The middle class gave the Democrats the worst ass-kicking in a mid-term since 1938 and nationally/statewide/locally since 1928 and the middle class will vote against Barack Obama in November.

And, you can take that to any bank in Switzerland or Germany where they are so secure that you will have to pay them for the privilege of parking your money.

As in California, the Democratic party, nationally, has become the party of the gentrified, liberal elites, public sector unions, and government dependents. The middle class are tired of being asked to foot the bill because, unlike Progressives who believe that money grows on trees and unicorn farts can power the 21st century economy, they know that they are going to get stuck with the cheque.

Gallup: Romney leads among middle-income voters:

http://hotair.com/archives/2012/06/05/gallup-romney-leads-among-middle-income-voters/

The middle class does not believe that they should have to pay more in taxes so that their neighbours, who are in PEU, earn more and get better benefits while occupying both of the two seats at the table.

I don’t expect your to understand any of this. It goes against your MMofA talking points.

Resist We Much on June 6, 2012 at 1:10 AM

The best part about the left’s despair is that this didn’t have to happen. They didn’t have to do this to themselves.

Aren’t you glad they did?

Not a clue, to be honest. Never been up there myself. My guess would be that there’s a manufacturing district up there, being adjacent to the water. That would likely mean heavy union presence.

when a leftist uses the phrase ‘middle class’ they actually mean unions. For example, that it is the unions that raised working people up…to the middle class.

it is code they always use. so the sentence, the middle class has suffered and we need more programs to keep the middle class strong…means, card check…etc.

as we all know, the left today is mostly made up of upscale professionals (professors, trust fund babies) and down scale poor people. The real middle class just wants to be left alone to do their jobs and live their life…and not be bossed around by trolls, leftists and Bloomberg

jaime on June 6, 2012 at 1:20 AM

I’m not saying it is for Mitt, but for many politicians it is.

INC on June 6, 2012 at 1:08 AM

I understand. But in my google to rebut renalin’s cheap shot, I found this from Romney’s commencement address to Christian Liberty University:

Today, thanks to what you have gained here, you leave Liberty with conviction and confidence as your armor. You know what you believe. You know who you are. And you know Whom you will serve. Not all colleges instill that kind of confidence, but it will be among the most prized qualities from your education here. Moral certainty, clear standards, and a commitment to spiritual ideals will set you apart in a world that searches for meaning.

That said, your values will not always be the object of public admiration. In fact, the more you live by your beliefs, the more you will endure the censure of the world. Christianity is not the faith of the complacent, the comfortable or of the timid. It demands and creates heroic souls like Wesley, Wilberforce, Bonhoeffer, John Paul the Second, and Billy Graham. Each showed, in their own way, the relentless and powerful influence of the message of Jesus Christ. May that be your guide.

… But from the beginning, this nation trusted in God, not man. Religious liberty is the first freedom in our Constitution. And whether the cause is justice for the persecuted, compassion for the needy and the sick, or mercy for the child waiting to be born, there is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian conscience in action.

… He is always at the door, and knocks for us. Our worldly successes cannot be guaranteed, but our ability to achieve spiritual success is entirely up to us, thanks to the grace of God.

The counties just across the border in Minnesota usually vote Democrat in similar numbers. My guess would be something to do with the vestiges of the early 20th century socialist Farm Labor movement in the Upper Midwest.

MadCon, what can you tell me about the three counties in the upper north of the state that went blue? I tried to ask you on the other thread but it was moving too fast.

Bmore on June 6, 2012 at 1:07 AM

Ha…I asked this earlier as well. It was explained that they are vestiges of Duluth, MN being a rust-belt, union type area.

SouthernGent on June 6, 2012 at 1:30 AM

Congrats MadCon and all HA Wisconsinites!

Night Cindy, Canopfor!

Interesting. I have a very good friend in WI. He is asleep now, but I will call him in the a.m. to see if he has a take on it also. Still its a great looking map to see for sore eyes. ; )

As someone somewhere already pointed out, the only part of the Wisconsin “fist” that’s still blue is the middle finger.
