Walker survives recall election in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker beat back a recall challenge Tuesday, winning both the right to finish his term and a voter endorsement of his strategy to curb state spending, which included the explosive measure that eliminated union rights for most public workers.

The rising Republican star becomes the first governor in U.S. history to survive a recall attempt with his defeat of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and the union leaders who rallied for months against his agenda.

In an interview, Walker said it was time “to put our differences aside and find ways to work together to move Wisconsin forward.”

The governor said he planned to invite lawmakers to meet as soon as next week over burgers and brats to discuss ways to bridge the political divide.

I have got to congratulate Scott Walker on this WIN, and I wish him all the luck in the world with rebuilding Wisconsin, but it’s going to take more than *burgers and brats* to get it done. I hope that’s not some precursor to an Obamaesque *beer summit*.

Lets take a look at a few Scott Walker stories from around the web and how this WIN in Wisconsin impacts the rest of America.

Governor Walker’s Victory Spells Doom For Public Sector Unions

Public sector unions have reached their high water mark. Let the cleanup begin as the red ink recedes.

Despite a last-minute smear campaign accusing Scott Walker of fathering an illegitimate love child, the governor’s recall election victory sends a clear message that should resonate around the nation: The fiscal cancer devouring state budgets has a cure, and he has found it. The costly defeat for the entrenched union interests that tried to oust Walker in retribution for challenging their power was marked by President Obama’s refusal to lend his weight to the campaign for fear of being stained by defeat. We’ll see how well this strategy of opportunistic detachment serves in the fall as Obama reaches out to unions for support.

Governor Walker’s Victory Spells Doom For Public Sector Unions

Doom for Public Sector Unions should be the death knell for ALL Unions. Unions have far outlived their usefulness, and like the old saying goes, ‘all things must end’, it’s time for Americans to wake up and take a close look at the Unions, and WHO it is that Union goons like Jimmy Hoffa and Richard Trumka support: Barack Hussein Obama and the Dems.

Wisconsin outcome signals opportunity for Romney

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s recall victory in Wisconsin sets the stage for what’s now expected to be a hard-fought presidential battle for this Midwestern state.

The Republican’s solid victory served as a warning for President Barack Obama about the potential hurdles he faces as he fights to hang onto a traditionally Democratic battleground he won comfortably in 2008. And, at least for now, it gave presumptive Republican challenger Mitt Romney a reason to feel optimistic about his chances of winning a state that has voted for the Democratic nominee in the past six elections.

Wisconsin outcome signals opportunity for Romney

This is a headline I truly enjoyed reading: Prediction: Romney Crushes Obama In Presidential Election Blowout, and if Americans have a lick of sense, they will turn this prediction into a reality!

Last night Conservatives all over this nation got that *shot in the arm* that has been much needed. GREAT JOB WISCONSIN!

Now is the time for Mitt Romney to capitalize on the momentum of the Wisconsin victory and for Conservatives and hard core GOP folks to kick the Democrats to the curb.

Barack Hussein Obama, his entire administration, the Union goons, WELFARE SLUGS, race baiting hustlers, the ‘hood rats, as well as the entitlement and reparations idiots that support Obama, have got to go!

That battle just began in earnest!

We need to be prepared America, when you stand against Barack Hussein Obama and his regime of unmitigated socialism, ‘Hope and Change’, welfare and entitlement, you WILL be called a RACIST for merely telling the truth.

I love it when that happens, you KNOW you’ve hit the correct nerve when they start with the hate mail and name calling simply because you are telling the truth as it MUST be told if America is to ever become a great and prosperous nation once again.

So, let the battle begin … and to Mitt Romney, I say this in all sincerity; the ball is in YOUR court, if YOU and the GOP can’t, or won’t capitalize on this advantage, then you will indeed be insuring the end of the GOP and the rise of a CONSERVATIVE Party in the very near future.

    With Walker’s win last night, I feel somewhat better about Romney’s chances of defeating Obama in Nov. In the meantime, I’m still buying ammo on a regular basis. The electorate in this country has yet to prove it isn’t dumber than a brick.

    Watching MSNBC spin in the wind with this was worth the price of admission.

    I wrote this to another “concerned” state worker. Take it for what it’s worth:

    “******, it’s a new day.

    I’m not yet convinced that the state or county or city entities have our “best interests” at heart. I am quite conflicted about this. I remain unconvinced that merit will play a part. I am, however, convinced that the bottom line will play a large part because there are people who will want a job and will work for a much lesser wage rate under lesser conditions.

    And they will be lesser educated and offer greater ignorance and incompetence. They won’t be your generation; they’ll be those just out of high school if they even graduated or acquired their GED or took a diploma in college.

    I throw this out for consideration: how did, for example, public safety officers in California reach “3 @ 50” and other budgetary acquisitions over the years? Not months as many would have you believe; oh no: years. Because all 58 counties and 435 cities and 36 state LEOs were in COMPETITION for the best applicants and wanted to attract the best applicants. I can remember when LA would come north and try to poach NorCal people for LAPD and LASO because their gene pool was so incredibly screwed with gangbangers and misfits.

    On the other hand, public safety pensions — at least with the state — got offered to those who never should have gotten them. To people who weren’t cops and didn’t deserve cop pensions because they weren’t exposed to cop danger. The “dental board” as cops? Bullshit. The state blanketed a whole host of designations to persons who shouldn’t have received public safety cop benefits. You push around a cop car and respond to calls for service and you’re a cop. I’ve no problem with that. You extend LEO benefits and pensions to those that aren’t? I have a big problem with that.

    Don’t be blinded. Go into the future with your eyes wide open. Don’t assume the inherent “goodness” of the state. Or individuals. You can already see where extra work has gotten you.

    I proffer these remarks behind 40+ years in law enforcement, working for various governments, both county and federally. I know how administrators think. And I know how the private and public sectors work, having been employed for both.

    I possess Institutional Memory that few do. And I have a remarkably accurate — to date — predictory rate with regard to individual and collective issues, agencies, conditions and wages.

    And I’m thinking: this coming trend won’t yield greater public safety.

    And in the meantime, people with UOY KCUF tattooed backwards on their foreheads — as I see in the jails — receive state, county and federal benefits. Because they are “poor” or “unemployable.”

    There is a Big Crash coming, ******. A Big Crash.”

    And that is what I have to proffer in response.

    I see BZ offers good advice. I just hope the person he wrote to appreciates that.

  5. Patrick Sperry says:

    Dumb question BZ, but exactly who do you consider to be Public Safety folks?

    I got into a huge too do with some local pols right after Columbine about this. I mean, a damned Prosecutor that never leaves the safety of the Courtroom? That’s just one example…

    As it stood then Police, Deputies, Firefighters and Paramedics (Paid City or County employees only) were allowedto have the same packege. Death benefits as being a part of Public Safety if they were killed while in the line of duty, just hurt of disabled for life? Basic workmen’s comp for all the volunteers.
