Good luck with that recall, leftwing brainstems.
Oh the comments from the crazy libs at the site are delicious!
I feel like Cartman!
If Scott Walker announced he was running for POTUS today, he would have my vote. The GOP needs to do everything they can to have his back, because this guy is the best thing they’ve got, and the Liberals know it, which is why they are going after him.
Can’t have him yet gator...he’s got things to finish here ;)
I wonder if they are getting much overflow from Illinois that’s controlled by Obama’s Chicago leftist crime machine.
Are the immigration laws being enforced in Wisconsin?
The GOP-e will be going after him too. The only people who will get his back will be the ones not attached to the teat of big government.
That is playing a role no question here. The Dems may try to focus on the fact that the jobs are here but the workers live in IL. Its grasping at straws, but they gotta do something ;)
If you mean like Alabama, no.
No, they're getting the buses primed for the mass influx scheduled for the recall election voting day.
I don’t know, actually. There aren’t many illegals in my general vicinity in the Northwoods, but that’s probably just due to the nature of the local economy . . . and maybe because Lake Superior is kind of a tough swim for Canadian would-be wetbacks!
Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald is another good one. Here’s a statement he issued (via The MacIver Institute via Facebook)
Speaker Fitzgerald: Statement on Latest Unemployment Data
Madison Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) issued the following statement Thursday following the Department of Workforce Developments latest unemployment report showing unemployment at its lowest rate since December of 2008:
Todays numbers are encouraging and show our reforms are continuing to take hold and are improving the economic climate in Wisconsin.
However, any positive news on the jobless front this week is bittersweet as it comes just days after Democrats and Senator Dale Schultz blocked the mining bill from passing which would have created jobs for generations to come.
I heard there’s a secret program to keep them on ice and thaw them out if the unemployment rate ever gets too low.
One word comes to mind when someone mentions Scott Walker...COURAGE.
Great question. As a WI native (and yes, obviously a Walker supporter) the answer is no. We have both Russian/Ukrainian illegals and everything South of the Border illegals combined. We are not doing enough. America is not doing enough. Businesses are not doing enough. This is the house we all built. I’m 52 years old and I’ve seen it all and I’ll go to my grave before anything changes significantly.
Wisconsin Jobless Rate Falls Ping
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Guv Walker is not gonna have any problem winning the recall ...
If the national unemployment rate really is dropping (which I still have my serious doubts), then Obama should be thanking all the Republican state governors elected in 2010 like Scott Walker for doing their part.
Congratulations on your soon to be colossal victory in the Re-call Vote, Wisconsin Pubbies!
The potential of what a Republican takeover,a non-Rino one,could do for California has been expressed in Wisconsin.
