“I can see 2012 from my house”

“I can see 2012 from my house”

Great reaction to yesterday’s Wisconsin recall elections, from blogger Lexington Green at Chicago Boyz (via Instapundit).  Read the whole thing.  Leaves me with that “wish I’d said that” feeling:

The people have spoken.  Again.
Get used to it.
Next: More rollback.
Here, there and everywhere.
Today Madison, tomorrow DC.
Today Wisconsin, tomorrow America.
I can see 2012 from my house.
Hope and Change?  Meet the snake.

Beautiful! He even worked in a reference to Lennon’s favorite McCartney song.

And … Don’t tread on Rick Santelli.

“I can see 2012 from my house” is a common Palinista expression.

A little announcement from acerbic (to say the least) but must read Zerohedge:

Special Notice: Obama To Vacation On Martha’s Vineyard Following A Job Well Done

“We bring you this special announcement courtesy of the White House which has informed that American plebs that following a fantastic job well done, in which the market is now back to pre-QE2 levels, unemployment is near record highs, delays for presidential press meetings compare with Newark airplane take offs, pessimism is at record highs, America’s credit rating has just been downgraded, the country was nearly bankrupted, and sales of end of the world provisions are through the roof (not to mention ammunition), president Obama is taking a well-deserved vacation at Martha’s Vineyard at the end of the month. From Bloomberg: “President Barack Obama will vacation with his family in Martha’s Vineyard at the end of this month as he’s done in years past, the White House said Wednesday, despite the weak economy and negotiations on the nation’s debt problem. Press secretary Jay Carney defended Obama’s plans to take a break even as he’s pledged urgent action on those issues. “I don’t think Americans out there would begrudge that notion that the president would spend some time with his family,” Carney said.” Spot on, Jay, spot on.

“Carney added that there’s really no such thing as a presidential vacation since Obama will travel with his aides, receive regular briefings on national security and the economy and be able to return to Washington if necessary. “The presidency travels with you. He will be in constant communication,” Carney said at the White House briefing. Last August, the president, Michelle Obama and their two daughters spent 10 days at a rented farm on the wealthy island retreat in Massachusetts.”

In this case Obama is right there along with the Eurocrats and Europols who are reluctantly slouching back from mandatory August vacations in Western Ruling Class hot spots like Tuscany to deal with serial riots, imminent collapse of the EU and other knotty problems.

GOP loses 1/3 of the seats up for grabs in red districts and this bodes well for 2012?

    I guess this clown is referring to Wisconsin. He’s having trouble figuring it out.

      I am having trouble figuring out the happy dance. Two people were just hauled out of office, and now there is a one vote majority. With voting numbers like these in red districts, Walker looks extremely vulnerable statewide.

      He’s channeling Markos Moulitsas for us. A big wad of bucks was blown to pick up 2 out of 6 seats – not sure if it worked out to $7M or $10M or $15M per seat. One of the seats should have been Democrat anyway, so that was a given that it would not be Republican after the next regular election. The other seat had a Republican incumbent with personal issues, yet the margin was pretty tight.

      Point was to keep control of the Senate. There are two races next week to recall Dems, one is considered safe, the other could flip.

      This is attempt by Markos Moulitsas to keep his suckers reeled in.

One of the seats lost was in a Democrat district that they hadn’t expected to win in the first place. The other, that was held by State Senator Randy Hopper [note that name], was lost largely because the “honorable” senator was thinking with the wrong head. In the middle of the campaign, he decided to abandon his wife and two children and move in with a 24 year old woman. And even them, he only lost 51-49. Next Tuesday, there is the recall election for the Democrats. Both of the Democrats up for recall are Fleebaggers. So as it stands, despite the best efforts of the entire Union movement, being outspent 2-1 [$20 million to $10 million, for state senate seats (!!!)], and pulling every string that they could; the Democrats could not take the State Senate back. Worst case scenario where both Democrats survive next week, the Republicans still hold the State Senate. And it is likely we get one if not both of them. If we get both of them, then after going for broke they are right back where they started.

We have severely attrited the enemy of resources they cannot afford, and still hold the field.

    Well, friends, we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one. Regardless of how you might want to minimize it, you had two GOP incumbents get thrown out of office. Regarding the money that was spent, let’s consider the money the Koch brothers have pumped into the state (including to “Americans for Prosperity,” which has a $40 million budget), and call it–charitably to your side, I think–a wash. I stand by the prediction that a Walker recall looks extremely promising.

“We have severely attrited the enemy of resources they cannot afford, and still hold the field.”

Why do you say resources they cannot afford? By my estimation, they just got 2.8 trillion dollars to play with.
