He pulled this crap in the last election.
A Yahoo News headline:
Wisconsin governor wins recall election
Scott Walker narrowly survives a union-led challenge by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Narrowly? Look out! Something’s up!
How long do they have to wait before they can mount another Recall? That and lawsuits and felony charges are obvious tactics o keep Walker from accomplishing anything else. A felony indictment would also maim him for Presidential politics, whether there were anything to it or not.
I’m going over to reddit to see how much they’re frothing and foaming.
You expect a government worker to do math?
Obama’s campaign team kept tabs electronically to the individual level and had hordes of grassroots volunteers knocking on doors offering free rides, and enough money to buy out small countries. They only managed, what, 70% turnout?
Now consider, out of that turnout, maybe a third are Republicans. Meaning, they would have to out-do Obama’s success by a factor of close to 2.5 times.
No. He didn't. Reagan did not use ghetto English.If he were accusing someone of being "loose" he would perhaps have said, "We win, you are loose." or he might have said something quite different i.e., "We win, you lose."
Tuned him in a minute ago, so far he looks like he’s trying not to cry or puke.
Watching MSNBC commentators now is hilarious. They still think they have influence and a winning plan for the future with a positive message. Oh yeah, and it is all Citizens United fault.
He is conceding now.
I heard chants of “recount” in the beginning of his speech.
Barrett BOOed for congratulating Walker.
On election day?????? I would have expected them to hold out until at least July....after all, it was very close!!!
Oh, but they were prepared to win anything within 5%, watching the obviously overly late Milw returns pull Walker's lead down from 61 to 55.
Out of mint chip (mmmm, mint chip) but I raise my popcycle and join you in the celebration!
The Drudge Report this afternoon breathlessly reports that exit polls from Tuesday’s recall election show Gov. Scott Walker holding his seat.
One problem, though. He provides no information to suggest that. The link he provides sends readers to an Associated Press story.
Republican and Democratic sources in Wisconsin told the Journal Sentinel that the numbers used by the Drudge Report are wrong. Sources said the exit polls showed that race as being much tighter than the conservative website indicated.
Later, Drudge updated his website, reporting that the exit poll showed a close race, but no recall.
I’m just going to report what I just said at the top of my lungs to snoozing hubby....while the music plays:
PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW
PRAISE HIM ALL PEOPLE HERE BELOW
PRAISE HIM ABOVE, YE HEAVENLY HOST
PRAISE FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST
THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY IN AMERICAN HISTORY THAT I HAVE EVER PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED
THANK YOU JESUS, THANK YOU LORD!
THANK YOU CITIZENS OF THE GREAT STATE OF WISCONSIN!
I am so happy, I was LITERALLY rolling on the floor. I haven’t done that since I saw Blazing Saddles in the movies when it first came out. (that gucci scene still gets me!)
This is a miracle win, a wonderous miracle. There is HOPE for our nation.
GOOD JOB TEA PARTIERS EVERYWHERE - IT WAS YOU (US? WE?) WHO MADE THIS HAPPEN!
Thank you, so appropriate! All good things... ;-D
