Scott Walker won't be bullied

Another Chris Christie in the making?
The Hill: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) says his party has been emboldened by massive protests against his controversial budget plan.
Walker said demonstrators who filled the state capitol building in Madison and the boycott by state Senate Democrats — some of whom fled the state in protest — have steeled the resolve of members of his party.
"If anything, I think it's made the Republicans in the Assembly and the Senate stronger," he told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren in an interview Thursday night. "They're not going to be bullied. They're not going to be intimidated."
Walker also fired back at President Obama, who sided with the public employees, saying on Fox News Friday, "We are focused on balancing our budget. It would be wise for the government and others in Washington to focus on balancing their budgets, which they are a long way off from doing." [MORE]
It looks like Chris Christie isn't the only Republican who isn't afraid to do the "Big Things".  If Walker is successful, he would have eclipsed Christie's record in dealing with the public sector. 
Walker makes an excellent point.  It is rather absurd that Obama and the Democrats are weighing in on Wisconsin's financial situation, when they are incapable of getting the national budget in order.

Go Walker~!!!

Are they really public servants? or is the public THEIR servants and slaves. We are not even allowed to say "no thanks" to their endless raises and benefits. It's sickening.

Interesting that our intrepid leader just can't keep his mouth shut about when he should. And talk about hitting the nail on the head, Clifton........given the ludicrous budget just released - he really just should keep quiet.

It's nice to start seeing a bit of courage around the country here lately. It's been too long!

Unions subverted the American System. Its time we regain the understanding in policy that they are a component of orginized crime.

Unlike the Federal government, States don't have the ability to just print dollar bills. They more quickly come to the point where a little thing called Reality can no longer be ignored.

I just find it mind blowing that he is sticking his nose into a state issue. It is none of his business.

He talks about them being our neighbors. The rank and file union person is being taken advantage of by the management. The sooner they see it the better off they and the tax payers will be.

I think Obama hasn't said anything major about Wisconsin except that Unions should not be villified.

People like Sky Parker who is a family values lady except that she has had multiple abortions and Clarence Thomas, a supreme court judge who has not been declaring his wife's income for years to me don't have any moral authority to critique Barack in any way

Gov Walker just wants to bust unions and the Unions will fight back. If you think these demonstrations are difficult, just wait till he gets the bill signed.

I hope this gets published
