Scott Walker and Tom Barrett debate in the recall campaign

Scott Walker and Tom Barrett debate during the recall campaign in 2012

Yesterday, the state of Wisconsin held a “recall” election which included the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, and 4 state Senate seats.

The results have sent more than a few shockwaves through the left wing political communities and caused some media outlets (N.Y. Times comes to mind immediately) to twist their headlines and stories into something which only shows their unwillingness to actually be fair and open-minded.

Scott Walker’s conservative values were reaffirmed by the Wisconsin voters and he was given the go ahead to continue his cost-cutting measures which will put Wisconsin on a good financial footing once again!

The Results are as follows:

Governor, with 100% of the precincts reporting,

Name votes for percentage won
Walker (R) 1,334,430 53%
Barrett (D) 1,161,870 46%
Trevedi (I) 14,349 01%

 

 

 

 

Lieutenant Governor, with 100% of the precincts reporting,

Name Votes for Percentage won
Kleefisch (R) 1,300,184 53%
Mitchell (D) 1,154,515 47%

 

 

 

State Senate, District 13, with 99% of the precincts reporting,

Name Votes for Percentage won
Fitzgerald (R) 47,116 58%
Compas (D) 32,870 41%
Virgil (L) 760 1%

 

 

 

 

State Senate, District 21, with 100% of the precincts reporting,

Name Votes for Percentage won
Lehman (D) 36,255 51%
Wanggaard (R) 35,476 49%

 

 

 

State Senate, District 23, with 100% of the precincts reporting,

Name Votes for Percentage won
Moulton (R) 39,843 57%
Dexter (D) 30,479 43%

 

 

 

State Senate, District 29, with 100% of the precinct reporting,

Name Votes for Percentage won
Petrowski (R) 44,027 61%
Seidel (D) 27,702 39%

 

 

 

As you can see, in the 6 elections, Republicans won 5 of them and lost the 6th by less than 800 votes.

Immediately the Democratic party, the White House, and some of the “mainstream” media outlets began spinning and discounting these results in ways that defy any sense of realism and normal logic.  For example, in the N.Y. Times early online edition they actually said “Walker Hangs on to Win”… please tell me, in what political universe is a SEVEN percentage point victory, “hanging on?”  Get real Times, and please, if you’re going to call yourself a “newspaper,” then present the NEWS without the editorial comment spread throughout.  Especially in the headlines.  Maybe if you were to do this (along with soooo many other papers) then you wouldn’t have been affected by the internet to the point of cutting back on operations so much!  But that’s another story for another day.

I believe this is a continuation of pre-internet politics where it was generally accepted by almost all politicians, that “If you told a lie, or spun a story long enough, the public would believe it.”  Of course with the internet, and the preponderance of talk radio programs now, the truth is much easier to find.  The same old way of doing things just isn’t working quite as well.  Even though it might have been simpler times, I for one, hope we never go back.  It’s too much fun seeing these politicians squirm while trying to keep the “old way” alive.
