This is big folks. Very big.
Public sector unions have reached their high water mark. Let the cleanup begin as the red ink recedes.
Despite a last-minute smear campaign accusing Scott Walker of fathering an illegitimate love child, the governor’s recall election victory sends a clear message that should resonate around the nation: The fiscal cancer devouring state budgets has a cure, and he has found it. The costly defeat for the entrenched union interests that tried to oust Walker in retribution for challenging their power was marked by President Obama’s refusal to lend his weight to the campaign for fear of being stained by defeat. We’ll see how well this strategy of opportunistic detachment serves in the fall as Obama reaches out to unions for support.
I had last month or so said that this election was the official start of the 2012 election season. And it has started with a bang. This is Wisconsin we’re talking about here. If Walker can win the recall election after the lies, cheating and stealing that the Democrats have done there, even Romney should have a shot at Wisconsin. And if Romney can win Wisconsin, he can win big.
