Today is election day and our friends on the left have a world of worry in states all across the county.
A lot of Democrats are in sheer panic. We will see plenty of dishonest and dishonorable tactics used by professional Democrats to keep their pols in office, to keep their staffs in comfortable jobs , to keep their friends getting government contracts and to make sure their friends in non profits can draw large salaries “for the children”. For these connected people their first concern is and always has been, the gravy train.
There are also a lot of Democrats who are ordinary people who aren’t remotely connected. Some have been Democrats all their lives and instinctively hate Republicans the way Red Sox fans hate the Yankees. Others have been sold a bill of goods by either MSNBC or their unions or the various web sites. Still others have been taught by the celebrity culture that Republicans are “uncool” and still others honestly hold the opinion that the ideas of the Democrat party and/or liberalism and socialism are better than the ideas of the Republican party and/or conservatism.
But regardless of motivations, selfish or selfless both groups have one thing in common. If they were asked to pick one race, other than their own, to go their way. If they could wave a magic wand and guarantee that no matter how bad a disaster tonight is for them, they would know one particular Republican would lose, from Concord New Hampshire to San Diego California, from Miami Florida to Spokane Washington the answer would be the same.
The guy Democrats want to see lose most of all is Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin.
No single person has been the source of greater grief to Democrats everywhere than Scott Walker.
It’s not that he won in a traditional blue state, that happens on occasion, it’s not that he’s considered a potential 2016 presidential candidate, there are plenty of GOP candidates out there ready and waiting to be hated.
What they can’t get over is he refused to be cowered in the face of all their might.
When the media said his changes were going too far, he went ahead with them anyway.
When the Democrats fled the state rather than allow his measures to be voted on, he persevered.
When he was pilloried daily on the cable networks he went on their shows and fearlessly but politely, made his case.
When the national GOP ducked and covered and only people like Sarah Palin & the late Andrew Breitbart would back him up he soldiered on.
When the left was holding protests, occupying the statehouse,when teachers unions were getting doctors notes to skip class and make a mob, he remained cool and steady.
And when the entire left side of the country invested everything they had, everything they felt everything they desired in one last desperate recall attempt to get rid of him, he not only beat them, but beat them by a margin totally unexpected.
All that is bad enough but when Walker program went into effect not only the indentured servants forced into unions flee but the desired and suggested results that he stated happened to the advantage of cities, towns and schools all over the state, but to the disadvantage of the Democrat interests who used the public treasury as their public fiefdom.
He demonstrated that the promises of the Democrats were hollow, Walker will never be forgiven for this
Even if by the end of the day every Senate Democrat New Hampshire to Alaska fell, Even if Brian Herr could pull off the impossible dream by beating Ed Markey in Massachusetts, even if Charlie Crist collapsed in Florida and Daniel Mallow imploded in Connecticut and it would matter one bit.
Because as long as Scott Walker is defeated in Wisconsin as far as the media is concerned that will be the only story of election 2014 and the conga line of liberals and media will run from the New York to the DNC HQ in Washington.
I look forward to seeing their disappointment.
There are less than 60 days to the year and to say things are tight financially around here is to say the Titanic had a bit of a leak.
