Prediction: Scott Walker will survive. He may even go on to become a senator. But the Left will find a way to destroy his reputation so that he can't go any further.
They did a masterful job on Rick Santorum to deny him re-election in Pennsylvania. They buried Sarah Palin.
It's what's wrong with the US political system when 1 side has exclusive control of the Media and all we have is the echo-chamber of our own on-line blogs & forums.
Sorry for the downer. Having a rough morning.
How I wish these destroyers would get a taste of their own medicine - although Elizabeth Warren seems to be getting some now.
IF they could destroy Walker’s reputation, they would have already done so. They did attempt to smear him over some actions of staffers, IIRC, but it went nowhere so fast, that I can’t even recall the allegations. They make up lies about his actions as Governor and those lies get swatted down w/the truth.
Scott Walker really is a nice guy who has values and character and lives them.
At my polling place, which is predominately donk-leaning, only 1/2 the registered voters had voted as of 7:pm. We also have about 100 eligible voters (by age) who are old order Amish and who never vote. No ID, of course, but we did have to sign the roll. Back in 2010, people were bringing in their kids who had just turned 18. We had ID, I think, for that election, and we had to sign the roll, but I noticed that all first-time voters were noted as such on the master list.
To clear up a conservative media meme that Republicans had no reason to vote: we did. We were all informed that the donks had placed a challenger to Walker on the Republican side and were urged to vote to make sure the unions didn’t run an Operation Chaos to beat Walker in the primary.
If Walker is able to survive to 2016 he will be the country’s number one choice for president. The best thing he can do to all attacks is not to respond to the the lies except to say of course it is not true and instead, point out the agenda and the people behind the lies.
Pulling back the curtains, will clear the air.
As far as the MSM is concerned, they need to be attacked and held accounable for their behaviors. When a reporter is connecting with a leftist in government this should be screamed from rooftops. I miss you Breitbart and We are Breitbart.
Sarah Palin is FAR from buried. She is infact already pre-vetted. I read her first book and would vote for her in a second and there are millions of like mind.
The crap about the resignation is immaterial. Its nothing for a sitting candidate in one office to spend half the term of that office campaigning for the next office. This is in fact normal course and is no different than resigning the seated office. In actual practice, her resignation was the noble, honest and ethical path and she took it.
There was no official get out the vote effort, and the LSM did not even mention that Walker had a token Republican opponent. The vote for Walker was pretty much just symbolic. And yet more of us came out for him than did Democrats to vote in an actual primary (I make that statement with the presumption that a significant number of votes for Kathleen Falk were actually Walker supporters hoping to push her through to the general)
What I take away from all of this is that the silent majority is plenty sick of the whining, the protesting and the general bad behavior of the Dems, Communists and unions (but I repeat myself) Their displeasure in all of this will be largely undetected until they can take the only action they have left - at the ballot box.
