Walker’s Reforms = Obama Referendum

Monday, June 4th, 2012

Tomorrow is reelection day in Wisconsin. REELECTION DAY.

Forget the RECALL, it’s not going to happen.

When Scott Walker was running in 2010, he knew his state was on the edge of the abyss. He knew the financial disaster looming would be bad and he ran on a platform of making substantial decisions aimed at pulling Wisconsin away from the brink.

Walker said that collective bargaining of public sector unions had to go. Wisconsin could no longer afford them. Walker said that union Members would have to start paying for a portion of their own pension programs for the same reason…Wisconsin could no longer afford to foot the full bill.

Walker won that election over his liberal rival, Tom Barrett.

Once he became the Governor OF Wisconsin, Walker set about putting into place exactly what he said he would when he was a candidate.

His actions, and those of his conservative majority in the state legislature set ablaze the liberal/socialist machine.

ON WISCONSIN!!!

With the Wisconsin recall election a mere 2 weeks away, set for June 5th, all political eyes are squarely on the Badger state.

Many are calling this a microcosm for the national election in November but, I’m not sure that’s accurate.

Micro seems far too small a comparison to me.

A foreshadowing is maybe more appropriate.

With two weeks to go, Governor Scott Walker’s lead in recent polls, is growing. Just two weeks ago, the race between Walker and liberal rival, Tom Barrett was a dead even heat. That is no longer the case. In a poll conducted just a couple days ago, Walker has a 6 point lead and indications are that his lead could grow to around 9 points by recall election day.

If there is a microcosm involved it comes from liberals.

As Governor Walker and the state legislature implemented measures to remove collective bargaining rights from public unions, liberals went into orbit and showed their true colors.

What happened at the State Capitol was disgusting. Liberals “occupied” the capitol, inside and out, hurled slurs and written threats to legislators, Governor Walker and any who stood with them.
