With the relatively easy victories by Walker, Kleefisch, and three incumbent Republicans in the state Senate, the liberal “crying game” has officially begun.
From The “Last Word”:
“Big Money” won the recall and stole the election. Maybe, Lawrence should have checked with The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign who has a tally showing $14 million coming from outside groups being spent on Barrett’s campaign.
“But what’s good for the goose is not good for the gander” – Well, if you listen to whining liberals it’s not.
“Republicans are preventing thousands of Wisconsin students from voting today.” – If you read what they wrote, they use the word “likely.” Then they want to blame the GOP for the students’ irresponsibility. If these students were so civic minded; then they would have updated their registrations a long time ago.
But wait for it…
If ThinkProgress.org knew about this little provision, then why didn’t they and the $14 million dollars coming from outside groups educate these students over the past eight months to update their registrations to ensure that they would be allowed to vote in time for the recall?
Sorry – your irresponsibility is not my problem.
Then you have the allegations of unions busing in people to vote illegally in the Wisconsin recall. You have to wonder if this is true, but it is not without precedent, unions have done this before.
So, let’s not disenfranchise, but make certain that you stack the deck in your favor with illegal voters – sounds like Chicago-style politics to me.
From The Daily Kos in the “Leading Off” section:
The state Senate recalls, however, offered one definite bright spot for Dems: In SD-21, former state Sen. John Lehman narrowly beat the man who sent him to a loss in 2010, state Sen. Van Wanggaard.
But, even they had to be honest when they also said:
Lehman’s victory gives Democrats a majority of seats in the chamber, though the legislature is not scheduled to meet again until next year—that is, after the November elections in which control of the body will once again be up for grabs.
So, they got nothing out of that election. LOL!!
Last, but certainly not least, the most hyped-up “lesson” from the Wisconsin recall election:
Obama leads 51-44 among Wisconsin voters. (Note: The numbers vary depending on which liberal source you get them from.)
Should someone please remind them that last night was about the Wisconsin recall election? But, since they want to bring up Obama (again), they need to remember that Obama won Wisconsin by 14 points in 2008. Now, he only leads by 7.
The more credit Walker can claim for rejuvenating the state economy – while the national economy stagnates thanks to “true blue” states – the more likely that Wisconsin will be up for grabs in November.
