Videos: Do you recall …

posted at 2:01 pm on June 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

If you watched the cable networks last night after the Wisconsin recall elections results made it obvious that Scott Walker won decisively over Tom Barrett, you’d have come away with the idea that no one thought this would mean anything in the national election five months from now, or in any other state.  That kind of consensus didn’t always exist.  American Future Fund produced this ad overnight after Walker’s win reminding us what was actually being said before it became plain that Barrett was not going to catch up to Walker:

On the other hand,perhaps a little self-deception is a healthy thing.  Barrett conceded the race to Walker when reality finally dawned, but at least one campaign worker wasn’t ready to admit defeatShe slapped the Milwaukee mayor for conceding before every ballot was counted:

12 News’ Terry Sater just spoke to the mayor about the ‘slap.’ Barrett said the woman asked if she could slap him for conceding. He said he’d rather she hug him. So he leaned down.. and got the slap.

“A woman who had been very angry that the mayor had conceded prior to the polls…all the votes being counted, rather, she was upset with the mayor…she came up and she slapped him and said, ‘How dare you concede, while there are people still trying to vote inside the Ziegler building.’”

“So the polls closed at 8, but there were still people inside the buildings who hadn’t had a chance to vote, so legally they could still vote. So by 8’o clock, it was still an hour and a half later and people are still trying to cast their ballots.”

“This woman is upset about that, and she slapped the mayor. He seemed very stunned by the fact that she had done that. Obviously, some of the passion and disappointment, tonight, coming out through that one woman’s hand and her temper.”

Ed Schultz called the results “a warning” about money in the political system, and railed on about Citizens United:

It’s interesting, is it not, that these same liberals didn’t seem to mind when unions got exempted from the spending limitations that got overturned in Citizens United, eh?  And how about that $600 million spendfest that Barack Obama staged in 2008, when the defender of public financing in presidential elections declined to accept those limitations on himself?  Speaking of which, Jammie Wearing Fool points out the irony of complaints on the Left about money in politics while Obama flew to California for five fundraisers in a single day:

President Obama’s campaign is increasingly focusing its fundraising efforts on California, where Obama on Wednesday will make his third trip in a month to attend five fundraisers.

Silicon Valley and Hollywood are Obama’s hottest spots to raise money, and the spigots have opened wider since Obama last month went public with his personal endorsement of gay marriage, which went over particularly well with California donors.

The president’s trip on Wednesday will be his 16th visit to California since entering office.

To be sure, the Golden State has always been a major cash machine for Democratic candidates — and even some Republicans. Sixteen of Obama’s top bundlers — including DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg  —  hail from California. But the state’s importance to the president has increased as Wall Street has cooled to Obama because of his attacks on Mitt Romney’s private-equity background at Bain Capital.

The Left isn’t sore about spending money.  They’re sore they got beat at the unions’ own game by Republicans.  And now they want us to believe that what had previously been an election that would affect races from President to dogcatcher now means nothing because, er, they lost.  Good luck with that.

Update: Ed Frank brings us Great Moments in Liberal Punditry:

Ready for November? Certainly looks like it!

To be fair, I watched Rachel Maddow last night for the Schadenfreude… and she was trying to put a smiley face on it, but she seemed to concede that this was a good day for Republicans and for conservatism… in her own way.

mankai on June 6, 2012 at 2:10 PM

America is over because no one could possibly vote conservative or libertarian without Koch money being donated to Reason and polls say you people are going down next election and suck my ….. people

That pretty much sum up the leftist posts, today?

http://twitchy.com/2012/06/06/kill-scott-walker-angry-libs-flood-twitter-with-death-threats-after-wisconsin-recall-defeat/

no doubt that much of it is due to living in bubble of leftists like Mad. WI. where the Barrett/Walker vote was something like 2K to 100, ie 95 percent. of course this is in the major leagues of democracies like the soviets or irag had before the fall

I never watch CNN or MSNBC so I had to look up their numbers on the Direct TV schedule. Why did I watch? For the theater of course. It was delicious to see the likes of Maddow, Schultz, O’Donnell et al crying, stumbling, telling their ever shrinking audience that the WI recall election didn’t matter. LoL! I haven’t enjoyed TV so much in years. I vote for a repeat in November.

Hey Sgt Schultz – if you want to get the money out of politics, get politics out of the money.

As long as people can a hold of wads of government cash (whether lavish PEU government worker pensions or Solyndra-style handouts) or favorable regulatory treatment (just why has John Corazine not been indicted yet?) there will be financial influences on the political process – legal and otherwise.

The only way to keep money out of politics is to keep the government small.

7:1 was how much the Walker campaign outspent Barrett. Citizens United doesn’t even apply. The irony is the total spending difference was closer to 2:1 or 3:1 depending on who you believe. So Citizens United actually helped even the playing field.

r keller on June 6, 2012 at 2:15 PM

Actually, Barrett won Dane County by 175K to 77K (69-30%), but since the Capitol is in Madison, it was easy for lots of libs to protest and make Walker look like a pariah. Barrett also won Milwaukee by 250K to 143K (63-36%).

But lots of people live outside Milwaukee and Madison, and if you don’t hear their protests in Madison, they do vote. Walker ran up 5-digit margins in lots of big, populous counties in eastern Wisconsin: 96K in Waukesha, 35K in Washington, 20K each in Ozaukee and Brown (Green Bay), 17K in Outagamie, 15K each in Marathon and Sheboygan, 13K in Fond du Lac, 12K in Wadworth, 11K in Dodge, 10K in Manitowoc, giving Walker a margin of over 257K votes in those counties alone, more than enough to overcome deficits in Milwaukee and Madison. Plus, Walker won most of the rural counties in northern and western Wisconsin by a few thousand votes each, and reporters in Madison never bothered to travel there and find out what voters were thinking.

Ed Schultz is quick to blame the results on Walker’s money advantage, most of which came from out-of-state donors, but Walker did get $10 million to Barrett’s $3 million from Wisconsin donors. Maybe those whose property taxes decreased due to Walker’s reforms decided to thank Gov. Walker with some of their tax savings, so he could keep up the good work!

Steve Z on June 6, 2012 at 3:30 PM

I just HAD to tune in to messnews (adding to their double digit viewership) to see their reaction to Gov. Walkers’ winning the recall. The hate and venom spewed on that channel was out-freaking-ragious. I just had to sit back and enjoy the meltdown.

oakpack on June 6, 2012 at 3:31 PM

if I “recall” they said the same things after the “shellacking” in the 2010 elections……it doesn’t mean that much, America is still behind us

DiabloAzure on June 6, 2012 at 3:34 PM

My take on Wisconsin.

Mitt Romney (RINO) 10 points worse than Scott Walker (tea party).

10 point is an awful lot of a disadvantage to overcome.

Republicans are stark raving mad to run Mitt in the most important election in the history of America.

If Obumbo wins I will hold you RINOs personally responsible.

If Mitt wins and is just as bad as Obama same thing but don’t know how much that will matter as that would destroy the Republican name for decades.

“…now means nothing because, er, they lost. Good luck with that.” Liberals showed classic cognitive dissonance on the results last night. Yeah, but don’t y’all take it to mean they have some sort of mental problem. It can be a coping mechanism so, cut them some slack jack.

Excuse me, but I frankly don’t give one whit as to what your “take” is or whom you will blame should Romney lose in November. One, who refuses to vote for the ONLY viable alternative to Barack Obama, has no room in which to speak.

Voting 3rd party or staying home = Voting for Obama.

“I don’t care who our candidate is and I haven’t since the beginning of this. I haven’t! Ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate! …When I walk through CPAC or a I travel the United States to meet people in the Tea Party who care – black, white, gay, and straight – anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker.And if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with [a certain] candidate, more than shame on you! You’re on the other side!”

- Andrew Breitbart, February 2012

The chance of repealing Obamacare if Obama gets reelected: 0%

The chance of repealing Obamacare if Romney is elected: >0%

The chance of Cass Sunstein and Harold Koh becoming Supreme Court Justices if Obama gets reelected: >0%

You are either with Obama and the Progs or you are against them. It’s that simple….and, I say this as a libertarian, who has never been a Republican nor a fan of Mitt Romney.

Resist We Much on June 6, 2012 at 4:12 PM

The chance of repealing Obamacare if Obama gets reelected: 0% Quite good if SCTOUS even just gets rid of the mandate. The house will not let Obama fix that or give him the money to not fix it and could defund the current law anyway.

The chance of repealing Obamacare if Romney is elected: >0%
With Mitt he will just force each State to implement it. No Constitutional Problem there and he has the man in place to do it.

The chance of Cass Sunstein and Harold Koh becoming Supreme Court Justices if Obama gets reelected: >0%

The chance of Cass Sunstein and Harold Koh becoming Supreme Court Justices if Romney gets elected: 0% Right because they are not far enough left. His Mass picks were all further left.

The chance of entitlement reform if Obama is reelected:>0% The house could force it anyway.

The chance of entitlement reform if Romney is elected: >0%. He will probably do it as well.

The chance of a balanced budget if Obama is reelected: 0%.

The chance of a balanced budget if Romney is elected: >0%. Romneys team wants the cuts in the future (code for never)

You are either with Obama and the Progs or you are against them. It’s that simple….and, I say this as a libertarian, who has never been a Republican nor a fan of Mitt Romney.

Typical Mitbot Marxist attacks but there is a question.

This is absolute proof Romney gets 10% less than any that ran against him except Ron Paul and possibly Herman Cain.

DWS was back and forth on this. I kept waiting for her eyeballs to start spinning in their sockets.

How would you know?

Mitt would definately not leak. His administration did not leak. Mitt is humble Obama the opposite.

We all know Obama is an Antichrist devil. He sits on high wanting all to worship him. But almost none do. Thus just an Antichrist not the Antichirst the real one will force worship but originally get it on his own.

Steveangell on June 6, 2012 at 4:44 PM

Voting 3rd party or staying home = Voting for Obama.

Resist We Much on June 6, 2012 at 4:12 PM

Exactly!

Oldnuke on June 6, 2012 at 4:46 PM

Obviously you have little knowledge of who Mitt really is.

Steveangell on June 6, 2012 at 4:32 PM

LOL! Let me know if you want some more than the following 2 examples of critical entries that I WROTE about Mitt Romney, which are still on my blog…

Mitt Romney: Flip-Flopping Away, Flip-Flopping Away. You Know The Weaker Your Foundation, The More You’ll Be Flip-Flopping Away.

How’s That MittMare in Massachusetts Doing? About As Well As You’d Think.

But he just has this wrong. Perhaps he never investigated Romney if he had he would have made an exception.

Romney “that Republican Registration is just a technicality I do not even know a single Republican I am a Liberal Moderate” Gov Debate 2002

Stay home. Vote 3rd Party. Vote for Obama. I DON’T CARE…Just keep your bloody trap shut for the next four years if Obama is reelected. You have NO standing to complain. None.

Get over it. Change your meds. Get some new tinfoil. Stop listening to Alex Jones. I don’t care! Just understand this: Unless he withdraws or dies, Mitt Romney is going to be the Republican nominee. Period. Story. End of.

Well fine Romney you are a Democrat. That Republican Registration is just a technicality.

You really are an idiot, aren’t you? I AM A LIBERTARIAN, WHICH MEANS THAT I AM NEITHER A REPUBLICAN NOR A DEMOCRAT. I am registered as an independent.

I was a Tory…for one year…in 1988…when I was 10 years old. If I still lived in UK and had to join a party, it would either be UKIP or the Official Raving Loony Monster Party (…for the huck of it. I loathe politicians and hate political parties).

Do not think Andrew meant to include Democrats pretending to be Republicans.

I GUARANTEE you that he meant support Mitt Romney, if he is the candidate. He made that statement in February – about 3 weeks before he died – at CPAC.

I hate these bassholes that bytch, but have said that they refuse to vote for the only viable candidate.

Resist We Much on June 6, 2012 at 5:05 PM

Well I loved Andrew RIP.

But he just has this wrong. Perhaps he never investigated Romney if he had he would have made an exception.

Steveangell on June 6, 2012 at 4:37 PM

This was at the beginning of Andrew’s CPAC speech, given 2 weeks before he died.

“I will march behind whoever our candidate is, because if we don’t, we lose. There are two paths! There are two paths! One is America, the other is Occupy! One is America, the other is Occupy!”

Now, you still want to claim you don’t think Andrew was including Mitt Romney in that statement?

Flora Duh on June 6, 2012 at 5:10 PM

Yes.

Mitt is a really good snake oil salesman. He had me in 2008. But I researched the real Mitt. The polar opposite of what he sales himself as.

People here hate the truth it seems to me. They constantly resort to the Saul Alinsky tactics he taught (Mitt Bots) they do their best to shut down conversation so the real Mitt is never known. I do not see them saying George Romney was not a Marxist praising North Vietnam. Because they know he did that as did Mitt then for example.

Andrew was so busy he probably worked himself to death. He had no time to research Mitt.

You are truly a complete idiot. Seriously. You have become so myopic and narrow-minded your in thinking that this is the best you can spew – this BS.

Nowhere has anyone said that Mitt is the savior, not the actual Romney fans and least of all me.

However, I will be here to rebut your moronic and idiotic comments that Mitt and Obama are the same and we’d be no better off if Romney takes over in January 2013.

Because that has got to be one of the most idiotic comments and trains of thought I’ve seen in my 45 years.

I can’t be bothered to list the myriad of issues both domestic and foreign that would be improved immediately upon a Romney presidency because your myopia would make it a waste of time.

But you’ll ignore this post and every one that points out reality in order to squawk out your talking points. You are really no better than a liberal in your delusions, just from the opposite end of the spectrum.

PS: BWAAAAAAAAAAAK!!!

Well Jesus H. Christ aren’t we just so lucky to have you here where you can go where no pundit and conservative and thinker has gone before?

Where-ever would we be and how could we ever manage? I’m so thankful that you are here to save us and to guide us along the way.

WOW you speak with the dead.

Seriously there is no way to know that.

I would have never believed the Republican Party was so stupid they would nominate someone that was not a Republican in any real way when they won their office to qualify them for the office of President. But I was wrong. I would have Guaranteed that it could not happen but it did.

I notice that you in no way say I am lying. Instead you just say you know what Andrew would have thought about Mitt had he researched him.

kim roy on June 6, 2012 at 5:30 PM

This I can agree with.

Talk about the fact that Obama was a Dual Citizen thus not a Natural Born Citizen. You are not allowed to be TV or write a Blog.

Talk about the fact that the Communist Party endorsed every Democrat in office for 15 years. No there are no Communist in America.

Freedom of Speech. Who needs that?

It is pitiful that people do not research candidates. But these are facts.

You Mitt Bots just attack me personally. You know I am speaking the truth. So you can not attack the facts. Thus you attempt to shut me up. Well that is Marxism.
