So this is democracy? Wisconsin state Democrats hiding out, AWOL, and not doing their jobs?
As the protests go on at the state House in Madison, WI over angry union folks upset over the fact that they will have to contribute more for their healthcare and pensions, like regular workers, the Wisconsin state 14 Democrat law makers skilled town to avoid a vote. NICE. Please tell me that state tax payers do not have to pay them for them not showing up to work? Not so great moments in Deomcracy … when the going gets tough, the Demcorats flee the state.
Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit
However, as reported at the Gateway Pundit, the missing, AWOL 14 democrats were found hiding out in a Clock Tower Best Western in Rockford, IL. They fled the state? What is this a new version of The Fugitive? Are democrats blaming a one arm man for their actions? How absurd can these people get? How bad you ask? When Hot Air can use an 80′s Bon Jovi video of “Runaway” as a comparison … one knows they have reached a new level of ridiculousness. Oh my, an even more absurd comparison comes from Sundries Shack with a Monty Python reference. Nice!
Our sister station in Rockford, WREX spoke with lawmakers there. WREX reports one lawmaker said, “It’s kind of everyone for themselves.”
Democratic Sen. Tim Cullen said, “We felt that this was our only way to delay the legislation for at least a couple days to get people to better understand it; people of all walks of life to understand it.”
Are you serious? Instead of doing their job and participating in a vote to help save the state form a fiscal catastrophe, the turned tail and ran. This is priceless, also reported by Jim Hofts … the Rockford Tea Party just chased the Wisconsin democrats out of the Best Western and are tracking their bus. You can run democrats, but you cannot hide.
Believe it or not protesters, to quote President Barack Obama, elections have consequences. Governor Walker won by quite a bit and the GOP was swept into office in the 2010 elections in Wisconsin for a reason.
From the Rockford Tea Party comes the following VIDEO confronting AWOL Democrats. Nice that the WI democrats could take a road trip. How sad is this that we have teachers performing an illegal strike and school children not receiving an education, democrat law makers neglecting their responsibilities and not doing their job and a President who cannot but out of state affairs who are trying to balance a budget, unlike Obama’s lame budget.
