Common Sense: Wisconsin edition

21 Feb

Governors in Wisconsin and New Jersey are manning up, speaking the truth and receiving national accolades and lots of local support for doing so.

And. They’re receiving plenty of flak from the opposition, too. But if you’re not receiving flak you’re not over the target.

Are you listening Eric Cantor? John Boehner?

If you need a reminder, here’s who you’re dealing with. They’re calling you Nazis. It’s what they do. But that doesn’t deter true patriots. These people are not to be negotiated with. They are to be defeated, discredited and sent to the scrap heap of history. They use children as cannon fodder. They are anarchists.

Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill, Republicans promised a measly 4% cut in spending in the Continuing Resolution of $1600B, but in fact, Repubs are not courageous enough to even fight for that meager promise. Cantor and Boehner are proposing only $61B of the skimpy $100B promised and Cantor along with other establishment Republicans (Young Guns? ha!) actually voted against another $22B in cuts.

But they still trumpet $100B in cuts like it’s an accomplishment. Except they didn’t even deliver on that.

Explain yourselves sirs and madames. Kristi Noem, recent tea party electee, explain why you voted against the additional $22B. Kevin McCarthy? We need an answer. You’re supposed to be a ‘Young Gun’ too.

We’re at a national tipping point. One strong shove from you will bring the left’s house of cards, along with their President, showering down into a heap of nothingness.

We’re in no mood for half measures, phony bipartisanship and timid cowardliness.

Our patience is running thin.

Readers of this blog know that I’m not a 3rd party guy, but if you keep this up you’ll seal your own fates. A 3rd party is not my first choice but it’s not out of the realm of possibility either.

You were elected or reelected to do a job. If you’re not up to the task we’ll upgrade to better legislators.

We’re not kidding.

Update: Erick Erickson at Red State agrees about Cantor. Read Eric Cantor’s Failure of Leadership.

    Excellent post. You can tell alot about someone by who their enemies are and how they are attacked. Gov. Walker is obviously someone with some backbone who is right on target. I think everyday that goes by strengthens his position. The more the general public sees of the “public servants” in Wisconsin they more nauseated they are. Could you think of anything worse than having your kid educated by some of those teachers? Well, ok….maybe Obamacare woud be worse, but at least the court threw that out.

    Too many people in this country have lost too many jobs, taken too many pay and benefit cuts, made too many sacrifices and paid too much in taxes to watch these spoiled brats who call themselves “public servants” commit fraud with phony doctor’s notes (is the Wisconsin medical society or Attorney General paying attention?).

    The funny thing is that the left has gotten themselves in so deep on this by making this the “Alamo” of public union issues, that they won’t be able to extricate themselves before they suffer a total defeat. They pushed too far and now the pushback has arrived, and it is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
