Lyell, I don't even care about which party Walker's in. He could call himself a Whig, a Tory, or make up his own political party of one, and he would still be acting like an idiot. Yes, all politicians lie and spin things until everyone gets dizzy. Walker is turning this into a twisted art form. He is taking lies and hypocrisy to new depths.
Of course Walker claims his "union adjustments" will save money. I have yet to find anything like an independent, unbiased source that agrees with that statement.
But that's beside the point. You've somehow managed to completely miss the fact that the outrage here is over Walker's sudden turnaround. For weeks he's insisted that the bill he so desperately wants to pass is all fiscal, all about money.
NOW, suddenly, when it suits his agenda, parts of it have nothing to do with money and can be passed with a lesser quorum.
Forget about the Democrats, the other Republicans, everything else. Look at what Walker's doing and stop trying to justify it by saying that other people have done bad things, too. Are you seriously going to insist that he's doing nothing wrong? Are you trying to play devil's advocate? To troll? Or do you actually support him?
I would appreciate a straight and simple answer to any or all of these questions.
