Walker: If you make the tough choices, voters will stick with you

posted at 9:21 am on June 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Last night, Barack Obama asserted that Democrats and unions had sent “a strong message to Scott Walker,” but this morning the victorious Governor of Wisconsin sent a message right back.  After winning more votes in a recall election than he did in his original 2010 victory, Walker tells Fox and Friends that voters have proven that when an officeholder delivers on his promises and “takes on the tough challenges,” voters will reward him:


He said, “They [the voters] said loudly, not just in Wisconsin, but across the country, ‘If you do the right thing, if you make the tough choices, voters will stand with you.’”

He addressed the impact of his win on November’s presidential election, reiterating that voters have sent a distinct message that they mean it “when they say, ‘We want you to take on these tough challenges and not just play for what’s maybe temporarily popular in the polls.’”

Walker says that Wisconsin voters are tired of the recall efforts and want to get back to a normal life — which for him includes a Leinenkugel Honey Weiss or two, some brats on the grill, and perhaps a Harley ride around the state this summer.  But Walker also encourages Mitt Romney and his team to pick up where he and the state GOP have left off, because Wisconsin is in play in November — even if Barack Obama continues to immerse himself in fantasy about what really happened yesterday in the state.

Think of all the money wasted and all the time wasted on this nonsense. Thankfully voters in Wisconsin have come to the realization that 2+2 still equals 4 no matter what the democrats and media say.
Seriously, how deluded and obsessed with ideology do you have to be to stare the results of Walkers results in the face and just flat out deny them? I saw Wisconsin teachers last night blathering on about Walker totally oblivious to the fact he saved their freaking jobs…and these people are shaping the minds of Wisconsin’s kids???

Conservatives need to focus more on the exit polling scam. It is deliberate deceit manufactured and peddled by the Left, and it needs more exposure.

MSNBC coverage, for all its bias, was still more professional than CNN, which ridiculously boasts of its objectivity. CNN refused to acknowledge their faulty exit polling data most of the night (Ari Fleischer comments notwithstanding), and then had the temerity to use this faulty data in its commentary and analysis for the rest of the evening.

The exit polls were garbage. There is a scandal here, and everyone knows it. Not once since 2000 has exit polling ever been wrong in the OPPOSITE (conservative) direction. Speaks volumes.

Or is it that when it comes to balancing the interests of the public and the public employees, the employees just want more.

crosshugger on June 6, 2012 at 9:54 AM

Watched MSNBC for five minutes last night, was treated to Fat Ed Schultz’s claim that Walker could be indicted in a few days.

Here’s what he is apparently what he was fantasizing about:

This morning, a criminal complaint filed in circuit court alleges that William Gardner, the president and CEO of Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Co., skirted campaign donation laws by soliciting employees to give to Scott Walker’s campaign and then reimbursing them, in what amounts to two felony counts. It has also come out that Walker’s campaign then reimbursed Gardner and seven additional railroad employees to the tune of $43,800, which indicates a criminal probe is imminent of Walker’s campaign.

Note the oh so clever statement, “Walker’s campaign then reimbursed Gardner and seven additional railroad employees to the tune of $43,800.”

What sense does it make to reimburse a donor his donation?

A non-liar would have said “returned the money.”

Obama is correct, a strong message was sent to Scott Walker last night. The problem for Obama is that the message was “STAY THE COURSE” which isn’t exactly the message Obama hoped the voters would send.

The exit polls were garbage. There is a scandal here, and everyone knows it. Not once since 2000 has exit polling ever been wrong in the OPPOSITE (conservative) direction. Speaks volumes.

matthew8787 on June 6, 2012 at 9:35 AM

There are two main problems with exit polls.

If a voter talks to an exit pollster, it’s a public conversation, while an actual vote is private. A conservative voter in a blue precinct will vote Republican, hoping to make a difference statewide, while he/she will avoid exit pollsters in order to avoid hostility from his/her neighbors overhearing the conversation.

The other problem is choosing WHERE to exit-poll. Exit pollsters have limited resources, and can only poll in less than 1% of precincts–for example, the 2000 exit poll that erroneously called Florida for Gore was based on less than 5,000 interviews out of 6 million voters. In yesterday’s election, Barrett won Milwaukee and Dane counties by about 100,000 votes each, Walker won Waukesha county by about the same margin, and also won several populous counties in eastern Wisconsin between Milwaukee and Green Bay by tens of thousands of votes each, and won many rural counties by a few thousand votes each. Given these widely-varying voting tendencies, how does an exit pollster choose a few precincts in a big county, totally ignore rural counties, and somehow extrapolate the results to a turnout model, which may be wrong?

Steve Z on June 6, 2012 at 10:34 AM

I’m not sure how I feel about Walker appropriating the Forward message, literally on the podium and in his language. Maybe better to leave it to the Maoists and Obama.

Christian Conservative on June 6, 2012 at 10:43 AM

“Despite the disappointing outcome of tonight’s election, there is no question that over the past year this recall effort sent a message to Scott Walker that his brand of divisive politics is offensive and wrong. Thousands of Wisconsinites mounted this effort in the face of a flood of out of state, secret and corporate special interest money– amounting to a massive $31 million war chest for Governor Walker to just $4 million on our side.

And as we turn our attention to the fall, we will not cede an inch in Wisconsin to Mitt Romney who has been behind in virtually every single recent poll and who wants to go back to the same failed policies of the past from which Wisconsin is recovering (thanks to Governor Scott Walker – RWM). And while we’re not taking anything for granted, if Mitt Romney thinks he’s going to be the first Republican to win Wisconsin since Ronald Reagan he’s got another thing coming.”

I’m not sure how I feel about Walker appropriating the Forward message, literally on the podium and in his language. Maybe better to leave it to the Maoists and Obama.

Scott Walker used ‘Forward’ slogan before Obama

Wisconsin voted to tighten the belt last night, a measure the country needs to do come November…

There are two main problems with exit polls.

The exit polls are proving to have zero legitimacy. The networks should just declare that the Democrat will win for days and weeks on end and save the expense.

Great commentary on this at Big Journalism and breitbart.com.
