It’s Thursday, and Michael Walsh is again joining Jim in-studio. His most recent New York Post column takes a look at the war on democracy funded by big-government unions and supported by the Democrat “fleebaggers” who refused to even come to the table for the past two weeks.
From the article…
[S]upporters are organizing recall petitions for the governor and eight targeted Republican senators, and claim to already have reached 15 percent of the number of signatures they need. Yet the whole effort, at least as far as the governor is concerned, is illegal. Under Wisconsin law, public officials aren’t subject to recall until one year into the term for which they were elected. But the man leading the drive to recall Walker, ex-Rep. David Obey, doesn’t care: He argues that Walker’s desire to roll back collective-bargaining rights of public-employee unions is “abusive” and thus justifies ignoring the law.
Let’s call this what it is: a campaign to nullify the 2010 election, by a sore-loser party that doesn’t like the results.
As we know, this is nothing new. Remember, the TEA Party didn’t storm into state capitals or shove people around (literally) but instead, the chant was “Remember in November” and “Throw the Bums Out.”
We’re totally cool with expressing our opinion at the ballot box and that’s exactly what happened in Wisconsin just four months ago. Wisconsin was not even close, with both houses totally flipping (big time) from Democrat to Republican control. A Democrat incumbent lost to now Gov. Scott Walker (R).
When elections go their way, the Democrat president of the United States steps up and says we won … deal with it.
When liberal/progressive/statists lose elections, they don’t stand for it and will never be willing to wait “till November.” Rather, they demand recall elections (when not even legal), target (literally) supporters of referendums they disagree with (remember Prop 8 in California?), and head to the courts to find friendly judges.
Read and pass along Walsh’s column today and tune in to the show.
