  • Jobs, Money, Scott Walker: Is It Time for Democrats to Panic?

    National Journal ^ | June 7, 2012 | By Naureen Khan
    Democrats are having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad June. But if it’s time to start panicking, most of them haven’t gotten the memo. Despite a spate of negative news, Democrats nationwide, both publicly and privately, seem remarkably Zen about their party’s prospects in November and unwilling to take out any frustration on their man in the Oval Office just yet. “Is there any anxiety on our side? Yes,” said Jerry Crawford, a longtime Democratic activist in Iowa. “Should the other side be feeling at least as much anxiety? Yes. There’s plenty of concern everywhere for both sides.”

    On Tuesday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker won his statewide recall election 53 to 46 percent in a state that has been "blue" longer than Michigan in terms of voting for Democrats in presidential elections. Many observers said it was the biggest loss government unions have ever experienced. "It’s more than a big deal, it’s a huge deal,” said Vincent Vernuccio, Labor Policy Counsel at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. "It will embolden governors and legislators across the country. They'll know that they can stand up for taxpayers against special interests. "They’ll understand that they might have to endure some pain, but...

    For nearly two years we have been subjected to the images of a boisterous Occupy Wisconsin crowd, exhibiting their menacing behavior toward opposing politicians, small business owners, and anyone else who dared disagree with their sense of entitlement. Thousands of agitators were brought in from all over the country to protest, intimidate and gather hundreds of thousands of signatures, many of them fraudulent. And all that to remove from office a duly elected governor, whose only crime consisted in the audacity of implementing his own campaign’s promises. Even now, after defeating the union mobs for the second time in...

Clip 1: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker survives a recall election, and the news networks embrace custom as extensions of the winning and losing campaigns. (04:34) Clip 2: Samantha Bee reports that normally mild-mannered Wisconsinites, incensed by the failed effort to recall Governor Scott Walker, are showing symptoms of douche fever. (03:06)

    Ventura County Star ^ | 6/8/2012 | Chas. Krauthammer
    Tuesday, June 5, 2012, will be remembered as the beginning of the long decline of the public-sector union. It will follow, and parallel, the shrinking of private-sector unions, now down to less than 7 percent of American workers. The abject failure of the unions to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — the first such failure in U.S. history — marks the Icarus moment of government-union power. Wax wings melted, there's nowhere to go but down. The ultimate significance of Walker's union reforms has been largely misunderstood. At first, the issue was curtailing outrageous union benefits, far beyond those of the...

    Townhall.com ^ | June 8, 2012 | Linda Chavez
    Gov. Scott Walker's victory in the Wisconsin recall election this week was no surprise to anyone but Big Labor. Unions were furious when Walker and the Republican-controlled legislature cut back their right to bargain on anything beyond wages. Democratic legislators fled the state for several weeks in 2011 in order to try to prevent a final vote from taking place. Demonstrators took over the state capitol, and when that didn't work, unions and left-leaning groups gathered signatures to force a recall vote. The national Democratic Party initially saw what was happening in Wisconsin as a popular revolt against Republican excesses...

    It was predictable. In Indiana, where Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) instituted by executive order a similar reform seven years ago, government-worker unions have since lost 91 percent of their dues-paying membership. In Wisconsin, Democratic and union bosses (a redundancy) understood what was at stake if Walker prevailed: not benefits, not “rights,” but the very existence of the unions. So they fought and they lost. Repeatedly. Tuesday was their third and last shot at reversing Walker’s reforms. In April 2011, they ran a candidate for chief justice of the state Supreme Court who was widely expected to strike down the law....

    National Review ^ | 06/08/2012 | Mona Charen
    Though it hasn’t been celebrated as such, Scott Walker’s victory in Wisconsin represents the full flowering of the tea-party movement. It is also a sign — among others — that the Republican party has recaptured its ideological core. Tea partiers are often mischaracterized as extreme right-wingers. Thus, proponents of same-sex marriage or unrestricted abortion will invoke “Tea Party” elements as those most opposed to their efforts. That’s off target. Though many in the movement may have conservative social views, those weren’t the issues that spurred them to organize, demonstrate, and vote. No, the tea partiers — judging by their signs,...

    The Democrats emerged from Tuesday's recall election with two consolation prizes. The first is that they flipped a seat in the Wisconsin state Senate, taking control of that body (which won’t convene again until after the 2012 elections). The second, and most frequently cited, is that exit polls found President Obama ahead of Mitt Romney by seven points in Wisconsin. As Markos Moulitsas of DailyKos summarized, “[a] seven-point lead, Obama over 50 percent, despite lacking participation of one of Obama's biggest constituencies (young voters), does not suggest a particularly close race this November. If Republicans want to dump their millions...

If you can fake that, you've got it made." In response to Edwards, I imagined a collective uproar: “Think Again, John — the jig is up!” As Edwards exits stage left, Wisconsin Gov.

As we go to press it's still too close to call. President Obama wanted to go to Wisconsin, but he just didn't have time. He's been doing so many campaign fundraisers lately he barely has time to play golf. The left's "outspent" argument is ridiculous. Unions take money by force from members, hire hundreds of political operatives and give them salaries to work on campaigns, then call them "volunteers" so their...

    "Win" is too small a word for what Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker pulled off Tuesday. So, probably, is victory. In a referendum on the first half of his first term, the Republican became the first governor in U.S. history to defeat an attempt to oust him from office. The other two recall efforts -- against California's Gray Davis in 2003 and North Dakota's Lynn Frazier in 1921 --were successful. Exit polls discovered a significant number of Wisconsin voters bothered by the union-led recall bid for something short of improper conduct. While others were impressed by Walker's budget surplus and billion...

    (Reuters) - Municipal bond prices fell and yields rose on Wednesday, squeezed by a retreat in the Treasury debt market, though yields remained near historic lows. The municipal bond market usually surges in June and July, when bondholders often reinvest billions of dollars of coupon payments and redemptions. But that scenario might be dampened as a result of the current low interest rates, said Edward Reinoso, chief executive officer of New York-based Castleton Partners. "The penalty for staying in cash is so minimal that it may be the better option instead," he said. In the secondary market, the 10-year yield...

Though Walker was shielded with a flood of secret corporate cash, Wisconsin made its voice heard. While we came closer to recalling Walker than many expected, we ended up coming just short.
