Gov. Walker easily wins the Wisconsin recall vote. What will Al Sharpton do?
A-Accept defeat graciously
B- Go work on his hair
C Scream VOTER SUPPRESSION!
MSNBC “PoliticsNation” host Al Sharpon was the latest of MSNBC’s on-air talent to express displeasure, or put a positive spin, on Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s win in Wisconsin Tuesday night, blaming “voter-suppression schemes” for the Democrats’ loss.
“This Wisconsin recall election, I think I did my commentary from the Washington, D.C. office this morning,” Sharpton said. “It really is a wake-up call, because despite that fact that clearly money was one of the main factors, it’s not going anywhere by November. If anything, I think that it has emboldened the right wing, it has emboldened these billionaires. There was all kinds of voter-suppression schemes from ID [cards required to vote], to not letting students vote and registration.”
Sharpton told his audience that this is a sign of things to come for this fall’s general election and encouraged his listeners to “double-down and get ready to fight.”
“It almost was a test run on what they’re going to do in November,” he continued. “The question is what are we going to do about it? We can either act like it means nothing and it’s like in a fight — you got your head hit and you’re groggy and you’re going to be in denial — or you’re going to admit that somebody hit you hard, clear your head and let’s double-down and get ready to fight.”
Good Freaking Grief, these parasites are so predictable.
UPDATE! Sharpton might want to blame those damned union guys
(CNSNews.com) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says “there’s no doubt” that union members were among those who voted to keep him in office in Tuesday’s recall election.
The network exit poll for the special election showed that Walker won the votes of 38 percent of voters who said they were a union member or lived in a household with a union member.
“I’m talking to workers here this morning, talked to a lot of manufacturers across the state over the last year and a half, but particularly the last months in this campaign, and I find that at plant after plant, there are construction workers and others in manufacturing who appreciate the fact that we turned our state around. And I think they wanted more of that in the future,” Walker told Fox & Friends Wednesday morning. “They wanted us to go forward.”
The exit poll showing that Walker got 38 percent of the vote from people living in union households was conducted by Edison Research for ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, Fox News and the Associated Press.
Walker said he’s heard voters complain for years that when politicians get into office, they’re not willing to take on the tough challenges.
UPDATE!! Of course, union butt boy Ed Schultz is furious at union members who voted for Walker!
On Wednesday’s The Ed Show, MSNBC host Ed Schultz took a lecturing and even mocking tone toward labor union members who voted for Governor Scott Walker in Tuesday’s recall election in Wisconsin as he recounted NBC News exit poll numbers showing that a significant chunk of union voters supported the Wisconsin Republican.
The MSNBC host ended up invoking President Obama’s assertion from the 2008 campaign that people in rural areas vote for Republicans because of a tendency to “cling” to guns and religion, and suggested that Obama was correct in his diagnosis of what he viewed as a problem that some union members in rural areas vote for Republicans instead of sticking with the union line.
Hey Ed, pull your head out of the union bosses asses and hear this. This was not a union election Ed! People actually had a right to vote their conscience!
