Scott Walker, the Wisconsin recall vote. It will be this time next week, June 5, this time next week. And it is increasingly clear, folks, the Democrats think they’re gonna lose, and it’s been that way for a couple of weeks. First the DNC pulled their money out of Wisconsin. Then Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz started saying, (imitating Schultz) “Well, it doesn’t mean anything. I mean, Wisconsin’s a standalone. Nothing really to learn there.” And then out the other side of her mouth she says something entirely different. Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz. She runs the Democrat National Committee. Really outdoing herself. She told C-SPAN a couple of days ago that a loss for the Democrat candidate in Wisconsin wouldn’t have any implications for other races. No, even the presidential race, that doesn’t mean anything.
Folks, they put everything they had — this was the unions’ last stand. This recall election, they failed at every recall they tried. They tried to recall the legislature. They tried to recall judges. They’ve done everything they could, the unions and Democrats, have done everything they could to get rid of Scott Walker, Republicans elsewhere in government to reverse Walker’s policies. She said on C-SPAN, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, “I think honestly there aren’t gonna be any repercussions. It’s an election that based in Wisconsin.”
But then she went to CNN. She was on CNN, I think it was Sunday morning on State of the Union with Candy Crowley. Candy Crowley asked her about the Wisconsin recall. “So there’s a recall movement, sitting governor, but he’s now leading in the polls up there, and you’ve said you don’t think there’s national implications to this, and yet you’re gonna spend some of your time up there fundraising for the Democrat who’s challenging Walker. If the Republican governor should retain his seat up there, what will it say about the power of unions who’ve been fighting him, and what will it say about putting Wisconsin in play this fall, maybe going for Romney?”
