Use in Wisconsin since the Packers won the World Series Scott Walker routed the recall it wasn't even close.
But CNN kept calling it close.
Perhaps they met her.
But really that's Glenn Close by the way CC -- -- -- you could take it down now.
There -- ago but perhaps it's this face that says at all.
Yes it seems like -- neighbor kids might have stolen his -- well -- Others are taking it well.
When I'm just disappointed this is the in the democracy.
We just got -- spent 34 million to four million dollars.
This was this is the biggest election an American I hope you keep me on a night because this hurts us all every single -- out there in the nation if you're watching.
Democracy died in -- -- Democracy.
But -- more gracious losers like this supporter greeting Tom Barrett.
I usually pay forty bucks for that John Gibson's place but look what starts ugly and suddenly remember -- began.
The mobs that threats of violence yet those great giddy days in the media -- let's girl girl's school -- -- -- -- -- to watch David.
Take down black.
It's -- they got it backwards they're David was actually Goliath suing their heroism but normal array became the thuggery of on the waterfront the media -- grand.
With the recall and OWS.
Hacks and even President Obama just kept falling in love with -- -- Of course the left now cries about the cash spent on the recall recall they initiated.
It's -- smearing yourself with honey had been complaining about the bees.
Words Obama's people claiming boaters -- sent a strong response to walker what message was -- I'd love to -- the fact is that this -- and it was a correction.
With union -- -- someone had to slap that hand.
It was walker not Obama Obama -- to Twitter.
Happy among 140.
Other minor characters.
Want I know you agree with everything I said so I don't even want to ask you this question -- But Debbie Wasserman Schultz called this recall effort a dry run for whites losing.
-- I look at.
I think it was a big loss for the unions I think it was devastating opinions who definitely wanted to get walker out of there.
Yeah but you know what I think this is less of a Petri dish for the fall and for the November election.
-- is evidence of the power of Republican national Republican money that went in there.
And really fed this recall that the -- walker against this recall effort.
And I think that it's an effort to break unions as a source of money.
We're Democrats nationally and in that sense it is really bad news because there is no counter the natural counter to all the big money that comes from the Republican billionaires is the money that came from the app from the -- but -- A -- shaking your head like someone -- -- had a lot how.
Disappointed this -- is the unions are the foot so -- shall foot soldiers for the Democratic Party often not by their own choice that.
But now have athlete's foot and they need a cure.
Them and I'm back I'm back there I.
And it's always the excuse they spent more money -- we get it possibly be.
Because Scott Walker got results could have possibly be that the with state of Wisconsin decided to hold our heads a little higher thinking that they -- -- race some of their debt that they were back -- on a path of fiscal sanity that this could possibly be true.
When it comes as Democrats -- when -- explaining a loss like that instead of just saying well this is a and -- -- a -- frames a teachable moment.
-- fire that of the unions and said they're basically just wallowing in their own unpopularity.
And the reason it was national was not because Scott Walker wanted to be national Democrats made it a national member of -- whole it was a big deal -- all the does this strikes and then all the protests and they stayed inside and they didn't shower for like six weeks.
And then a year and a half later after he gets results they have egg on their face and it's because Republicans -- a national -- and but at on the things atom -- get back.
Yet they asked for this fight air what do you make -- this is the end.
Of democracy as we know what's.
I here's what I make of it I think if I -- Mitt Romney I would run out and hire Scott Walker's campaign the -- extra bump take back campaign manager take him because.
Scott Walker was a better.
Candidate Scott Walker was better prepared Scott Walker was placed out there better and Scott Walker had -- lot better financing.
I'm a better infrastructure so whatever walker did Mitt -- we should start taking don't make me.
And bring those people over.
Unions got fault they got -- they got spank them they got -- by the taxpayer and -- that is unusual that hasn't happened in a long time an American ball.
That's -- wanted to be very concerned about this and when you think about the tens of millions of dollars that -- -- deeply invested.
And -- locker it was an abysmal failure when you look at the percentage point it was a resounding victory an affirmation for what walker was trying to do.
And we see other cities and states trying to follow suit which is going to be significant.
And a problem along with the job numbers for Obama come November.
Yet -- -- walker was elected he did when he was supposed to do he got rid of that high speed train.
Which thank goodness -- I love it when it when he got rid of the train that actually was telling the federal government we're going to.
Not take 800 million dollars worth of federal funds -- let me think that this train is a bad investment for our state.
We're gonna walk away from and I think of people said.
Where Wiki on that and they started seeing results and that's why it's -- look across the country to Republican governors all around.
Daniels Perry Haley Christie -- McDonnell Kasich in -- in particular Pawlenty good throwing their Jeb Bush.
They have a true experience as executives they are making a big difference and that's where I think the real power is a threat that the leadership the leader.
I hit -- guys -- telling the truth and I appreciate it because now it's good.
And I did it go you said -- it was the Democrats to start this -- it was walker it was -- Democratic Party.
Look at it they wanted to be caught on and on I would use that -- they started who started the people who said rather than negotiate with the unions we're gonna strip you of all your bargaining rights.
And we're gonna do it by forcing it -- a Republican majority in the legislature.
When the unions then responded and I don't think they responded all that effectively but -- -- big protest in the legislators Democrats walking away from the state I think irresponsibly.
Then it was then at that point that you then had this big fight set -- and I think you know what Mitt Romney didn't show up the -- walker.
Mitt Romney is -- president has.
President Obama didn't show us that -- -- you don't know whether honest I don't Greg all day ye -- we saw it's too close calls him vehicles raced every network every left leaning network was saying.
It's gonna come down a last minute decision -- what the what the vote.
Turnouts going to be easier to dictate who wins.
Up until even through the exit polls are saying it's -- clubs and it does.
They walker landslide it was a landslide 49 medalists like forty -- -- -- 49 minutes they called.
That's that's a land since CNN what do they -- if they switch is always a surprise whatsoever to royalty yeah.
-- what they moved to the tent covering the royal they -- Diamond Jubilee.
Instead of watching guys.
Governor what we haven't see if -- Republicans and if the Republicans have lost last night.
This would be the biggest story going.
You have everybody's saying exactly this is what Obama's gonna see an amendment is exactly how he's gonna win right and instead that you have -- making them.
Like the little thing yeah.
Actually mad at -- what I -- To help.
It doesn't matter.
I said let everybody else gets locked up at me I said that the Democrats insist interest initiated the recall Scott -- I didn't ask for the recall that was my point.
And I didn't say the Scott Walker.
How do you data -- -- -- -- -- my mom and I didn't mean to -- you and we got below there.
I don't know and I think we were wrong you cannot and I let them money isn't.
Okay you're getting voters in two major California cities.
They're they're approving measures to cut retired and a fans standing -- that -- isn't it about a Democrat that is doing this in San Jose right wants it was like.
It's not just Republicans that are seen this is a problem we can't afford this style living anymore right and.
-- -- -- -- -- It's people who were saying we need to do something about that we need to do something a -- pensions all of that is on the table all of that is legitimate.
The question here was about walker.
Forcing this thing through in such a way as to actually antagonize polarize the state of Wisconsin.
Like doing a bottle there on on national agenda and let me say that's fun yeah of course it's not the music -- -- There weren't and that you don't think that was rammed -- no I do that under a Democrat majority.
Of what who who create this Mitt Romney heritage.
And let me ask another.
Granite -- the congrats on your help your heart hello I'm -- national idea of unit.
Universal health care.
And let me ask -- -- -- public option in in the healthcare plan the President Obama put forward no because the Republican opposition you know we gotta we gotta double we're gonna come back to this because it's getting quite heated and -- -- -- -- I have to what did you -- -- I intercepted a postcard -- really.
I'll have to check it out if you can take this now bomb you take it to.
Yep that's right that's why the same voters that voted -- -- -- Also I indicated that they would support President Obama however Picasso's exit polls -- that this was -- -- be close and it wasn't our lives and yeah.
Colleague Michael around -- gone through back through with his I -- -- analysis he said it was 4848 so.
Thing all right I'll get him get yelled at odds of you might hear and that actually be quite renewed.
