Scott Walker: "There's a difference between being a strong advocate on a given position versus being against someone."

"I think I can say that with some authority, whether you all agree or disagree with the things I've done over the last 2 years, there obviously have been a lot of personal attacks against me and my family. But I've tried to ensure, hopefully, the best thing I've passed on to my children is even in times like that - don't respond in kind. Stand up for your principles, don't back (down) from those, but don't ever make it a personal issue."

Now I think Madison Man is actually Scott Walker.

Brew Master said...

I thought he was going to be indicted, any day now.....

Henry said...

Wish he were my governor.

Chip S. said...

He is dumb, not wrong, but dumb.

Nice illustration of Walker's point.

Wish he were my governor.

Wish you could have him.

cubanbob said...

Wouldn't it be great if we could swap positions? Obama as WI governor and Walker as US president.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Wish he were my governor.

Me too.

"Wish you could have him."

I'll trade you Jerry Brown. As a bonus....I'll throw in CalPers.

I'll trade you Jerry Brown.

Today?

Chip S. said...

Yeah, I can see why garage is such a big Jerry Brown fan. He's not trying to force state employees to bear more of their own pension costs.

Oh, wait.

Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration is pushing back against labor union efforts to roll back some of the pension changes made by state lawmakers last year.

The governor has vowed to fight any legal or legislative effort that he views as softening the law, which requires current employees to pay more of their own retirement costs and increases the retirement age for public workers.


Sooner or later, reality has a way of forcing people to pay attention to it.

"I thought he was going to be indicted, any day now....."

Announced this morning on Milwaukee radio that the John Doe investigation is now closed and no charges will be filed.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Me:I'll trade you Jerry Brown.

Garage: Today?

Instantly. And as an extra added bonus we'll give you for free the California Environmental Protection Agency.....no shipping and handling!! Act now!!!

edutcher said...

I like this guy.

Even more.

Ann, this might be a good time to sit garage down and familiarize him with the old Greek proverb about taking care in those things for which one wishes.

Deal. I'll take Brown, the EPA, the ocean, a growing economy, and jobs.

SteveR said...

A workable alternative is for Garage to move to California.

khesanh0802 said...

To Garage;

You want CA jobs? Unemployment rate in CA 9.8%, WI 6.6%.

See link for 12/31/12 from BLS: http://www.bls.gov/web/laus/laumstrk.htm

What is it you"re smoking?

Not to a Progressive, there isn't.

Growing economy? CA is hemorrhaging jobs, money, businesses, and people.

For all of us who love you, put down that Demon Rum, and forsake the Path of Iniquity!

Chip S. said...

I think he might be dropping N-bomb into his home brew, b/c he seems to think that swapping governors w/CA would also mean swapping Lake Michigan for the Pacific Ocean.

Yes, literally, that's what I thought!

Chip S. said...

Well, it wasn't much more fanciful than the rest of your list.

Petunia said...

Sorry, California, you can't have our governor. We'll keep our better economy, reined-in government unions, budget surplus, etc. and leave you with Moonbeam, out-of-control government unions, millions of illegal aliens on government benefits, etc.

But good luck. I wish California could become the golden state it was when I was younger, but unfortunately it may be too late.

Calypso Facto said...

People value water up north.

Especially those sensitive native Americans who make up 5 of Wisconsin's top 6 polluters.

Here is your Walker "surplus".

Fiscally conservative!

Henry said...

@garage -- Deval Patrick straight up. There's only $3K difference in salary, so their shouldn't be any cap issues.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

He's standing 10 feet tall from Ashland to Monroe.

LOLZ.

Wish he were my governor.

Mine too.

I'd be willing to trade Pat Quinn for a crack addled Bangkok hooker and take my chances.

Not so fast, there sweetcheeks.
I got a Pat Quinn, An Illinois EPA, and a hereditary legislature.
You might have an Ocean, but we got a lake and politicians that you can actually buy.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Ah, nothing draws out the delusional Manboobs Mahal like a Scott Walker thread.

When is that indictment coming, fatboy?

Just becaues you choose to only expose yourself to leftist propoganda, does not make the reality of Wisconsin and California's fiscal situation stop occuring.

Why don't you move to California if it's so great, eh pudgy? You make oh so much money, and I hear that all those high earners are just flocking there.

Patrick said...

But do they stay bought?

Baron Zemo said...

Wait a minute.

I will be happy to send you Andy Cuomo, his father Mario, Charlie Rangel, Chuck Shumer and I will even throw in A-Rod.

Can I trade Ron Johnson and Brett Favre in the deal?

Bob said...

Walker's not indicted yet? Man, your justice system sure moves slow. Garage has assured us now for some time it was any day. Quite some time. A really longggg time.

Baron Zemo said...

I would love to have Ron Johnson but I don't need Brett Farve.

I already have Anthony Weiner for that spot.

Baron Zemo said...

Ron Johnson was my second favorite Giant running back after Tucker Fredrickson.

I am glad that he got to be elected Senator. Good deal.

Baron Zemo said...

I hear that LT is gonna get Lautenberg's seat in Jersey so they can have a matched set of whoremongers.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Read'em and weep, douchebag.

SECRET ROUTERS!!!!!!!!!

Your predictions of Walker being indicted failed as surely as your marriage.

Suck it, fatass.

Baron Zemo said...

I love that term.....whoremongers.

Just like fishmonger.

Hey could we use that as a sly euphemism for lesbians?

Baron Zemo said...

"It has long been suspected that Jodie Foster was a fishmonger....and she finally admitted in a speech that she had found Nemo."

Amartel said...

Take my governor. Please.

I think recent history has shown that to be the case.

Fold.

Baron Zemo said...

Yes that's what A-Rod does.

Just like a cheap suitcase.

Joe Schmoe said...

Garagie, your anti-Walker piece regurgitates talking points from Kathleen Vinehout. Since Walker beat her in the recall election, and she's still a Dem state senator who would like to get back into majority power, she wouldn't be too biased about this, would she?

Where can I go to get an objective analysis on the state of Wisconsin's finances? I'm serious. If you don't believe what's coming out of Walker's camp, why should anyone believe what is coming out of Vinehout's camp?

I hate this aspect of politics. No one is trying to do a good job; they are just trying to hold onto power.

JAL said...

Sometimes a grown up gets involved in politics.

Kind of refreshing.
