    Gov Walker Serene in Center of Political Storm.

    Just a taste of Gerge Will on the Wisconsin "crisis".  George says it all very clearly.


    He also thinks Obama’s intervention demonstrates why Presidents should serve apprenticeships as governors. He says that Obama, in the Illinois Legislature and the U.S. Senate, “was a liberal among liberals,” and liberals are his base, and his staff comes from it. Governors, Walker says, get used to considering the interests of broad constituencies.

    Walker’s calm comportment in this crisis is reminiscent of President Reagan’s during his 1981 stand against the illegal strike by air traffic controllers, and Margaret Thatcher’s in the1984 showdown with the miners’ union over whether unions or Parliament would govern Britain. Walker, by a fiscal seriousness contrasting with Obama’s lack thereof, and Obama, by inciting defenders of the indefensible, have made three things clear:

    First, the Democratic Party is the party of government, not only because of its extravagant sense of government’s competence and proper scope, but also because the party’s base is government employees. Second, government employees have an increasingly adversarial relationship with the governed. Third, Obama’s “move to the center” is fictitious.

    Gov Walker has been great.

    He is doing what he was elected to do, despite the whining from the Northeast liberals.

    Despite the state being held hostage by cowardly Democratic officials that refuse to participate in a vote.
    The union THUGS taking over a democratic process are an embarassment.

    They do paint the picture.. US vs. THEM
    Public unions AGAINST all the people that pay for their lavish benefits.
    Judgement day will come.
     
    Interesting but not surprising that the community organizer first sided with unions and now acts like the WI Democrats by going into hiding.

    Uniter.. my azz !

    The 2012 GOP ticket will have one or more of these superstar Governors on the ticket:

    Christie, Kasich, Walker, McDonnell

    Re: Gov Walker Serene in Center of Political Storm.

    Walker wasn't elected to destroy collective bargaining rights.  He didn't campaign on that, and clearly he did he wouldn't have enjoyed the support of the law enforecement unions as well as the firefighters.  In addition he would have lost many independents and would have likely lost the race.  So lets not pretend that his election was a mandate to do whatever he wanted to, he pulled a bait and swithc that resulted in large numbers of people who supported him a just a couple months ago to rescind their support for him over the last couple of weeks. 

    And as far as running for president, get real.  One of the very firsts acts of governor resulted in a massive showdown and social disruption.  He's a partisan's partisan and at the rate he's going his reelection campaign in 3 years is already underwater. 

    And George Will is hilarious.  Bush served as a governor and was a horrible president.  People threw shoes at him, foreign leaders cringed from his touch, and his own party damn near pretended he didn't exist in 2008 because he was so toxic.

    Gov Walker has held elected office since 1990, and has considerable more experience and now executive level experience then Sen Obama did when he announced for President.  That said it is too early for Walker to make that leap. You fail to realize that history is beiing much more forgiving, note the latest presidential poll last week, than a fickle public to GW.  You must remember that the MSM created Bush Derangement Syndrome and helped skew the election to their hero, the guy without a resume or history of votes.

    Re: Gov Walker Serene in Center of Political Storm.

    Gov Wlaker ran on curtailing spending, specifically in the public sector.  He was very clear what he planned on doing.

    HE WON!!

    Now the libs won't follow their own beliefs that elections have consequences.

    I find partuclarly funny that all these Northeast progressives feel like it is their right to stick their noses in WI business.

    I really do hope that a bunch of red states ship people up here to get involved with our elections.  How would you all like that?

    Right, but northeast conservatives who are chiming in on the issue?  That's fine and dandy.  Obviously what is happening in Wisconsin has broader implications as Ohio is looking at the same type of legislation is obviously waiting to see how Wis plays out.  Indiana tried the same thing, but it appears they dropped the bill.  It isn't an isolated issue and as a topical current event, what does it matter if someone with an opinion lives in the state or not?  How many posts have you made on the issue?

    Oh and look he pranced out Reagan again. Thought Will was a conservative , there is no way they can claim Reagan was a conservative after all his tax hikes and deficit spending. LMLAO

    They love their talking heads no matter how much they never tell truth to fact.

    Damain Damain Damain, you'll never get it, will you?

    When a Republican is elected he has a mandate to do whatever it takes to do what other Republicans want.

    When a Democrat is elected he dares do precisely what he campaigned on, that makes him a weak fascist-socialist communist of the dictatorial grandma-killing and throat-ramming varieties. 

    DUH!
