Unless there is a compromise on the budget repair bill, and in light of the state budget to be unveiled Tuesday, I expect bigger crowds next Saturday at the State Capitol.
This political storm is just starting to ramp up.
After the past two weeks one thing is very clear. The voters and citizens of this state are mighty pissed!
Within the political ranks of Wisconsin from either party no one has ever witnessed such lunacy which now passes for governance. The seasoned and mature minds are just shaking their heads and wondering WTF!
On Sunday I had to smile at the words penned by Doug Moe in the Wisconsin State Journal about his conversation with former Governor Tommy Thompson. Every reader of the column knew that Thompson was being a gentleman and biting his tongue when he spoke of the outrageous issue that now confronts this state.
The line that just rang with understatement and made me howl was Thompson saying “It possibly could have been handled better.”
Thompson would never have let himself get so mired in the muck and distracted as Scott Walker has done. No politician worth his salt dives into an empty swimming pool…and then wants everyone else to take the plunge too!
Governor Walker is not up to the job that he was elected for in November, and not intelligent enough to understand that fact.
The chaos and divisions that are being created within our communities and workplaces as a result of the ideas and plans being hatched by his administration must end.
Someone has to tell Walker, and get him to listen.
It is quite obvious to anyone that takes the time to look out the windows of the State Capitol that the people of Wisconsin are not willing to follow Walker.
They want a change in direction, and they want it now.
The people are in NO mood for the games that Walker and his allies are playing. In just a few weeks the conservatives have over-played their hand.
The question I will be looking to find an answer for this week is if the Republicans are listening to the people of this state?
Will the legislative members of the GOP have a heart-to-heart chat with Walker? Will they advise Walker the hokum that is being spun is not what the people of Wisconsin bought when they elected the GOP last November.
The Republicans had better wise up and sit down for a chat this week with Governor Walker and settle a few issues.
If not the people of Wisconsin will come back to Madison next weekend for a chat of their own.
The people intend to be heard. They intend to win this policy battle.
