THIS is what Democracy Looks Like
I titled this entry after Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch's comments this evening.
The recall election has come and gone, and as I predicted, Governor Scott Walker won! Not only did he just win this, he won by a couple of touchdowns. This sends a strong message to Unions, in the birth state of the public sector union, and Democrats that their tactics were not appreciated, and Walker's strong resolve has won the day, as it has created jobs within the Badger State, while saving the money of its taxpayers.
On the National level, this race has huge implications! Scott Walker's strong resolve was proven to be accepted by the citizens of Wisconsin and this will embolden No Fear Republicans serving in their first term, such as Nikki Haley, Susanna Martinez, Rick Scott and Brian Sandoval, the inspiration to do great things by looking for innovative ways to save money of the taxpayers, supporting smaller government, while at the same time, attracting new residents and businesses to locate in their respective states.
While it's still early, this is positive momentum for Mitt Romney and there is the greater chance Wisconsin is on the table, especially when teaming up with great Wisconsin Republican leaders such as Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch, Paul Ryan and Reince Priebus to argue on the issues that not only affect Wisconsin, but taxpayers across the United States.
Congratulations to Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and most importantly, the taxpayers of Wisconsin for speaking as a majority voice to do the right thing!
