Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 14, 2018

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker sent out a Tweet storm attempting to defend signing a law that limits the power of the incoming Democrat who defeated Walker during the mid-term elections. According to CNN: "The legislation is designed to effectively prevent Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers and incoming Attorney General Josh Kaul from delivering on their campaign promises, including one bill that would require permission from the state Legislature before the state's executive branch could make waivers or changes to public assistance programs, including work- and drug-testing requirements for "able-bodied" adults."

Congrats repubs. You've found yet another way to thwart the will of the american people. If only you were as good at helping the average american as you are at finding brilliant new ways of cheating and fighting democracy.

When dems do this, remember who started it.

Obviously what Gov Walker is saying is that the ends of thwarting Dem policy, on which they were duly elected, justifies the means of weakening them politically by law.

Which is quite Machiavellian of them.

Scott Walker is a pig. The GOP are pigs. But there's always a Jimmy Dean to deal with such things.

Walkers legacy will be to be remembered as an ideologically driven, dissembling man of middling intelligence whose ambitions for political power ruined a state.

Seems reasonable, wouldn't want a dictator in charge would we?

Those bold, depraved Republicans have decided segregation is back in vogue. One rule for Republicans, another for Democrats. Strikers, communists and socialists need jail time.

The difference between your garden variety of piece of ---- politicians and the really, really large pieces of ---- politicians is that the large ones manage to have the reek of their time in office linger for many years after they are gone. Well done Walker. You are a gigantic piece of ----.

This is not to prevent the new governor from making changes. It is to prevent him from undoing the changes Walker made using the very power he took away from Evers
