Media Engages In Efforts To Defeat Taxpayers

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has issued an ultimatum to the Democratic state senators that fled the state rather than do their duty: come back today, or the state would lose an additional $165 million and he'd be forced to start layoffs of teachers.

Time, the law, and public opinion is on Walker's side. And so it was imperative that the left find some means of shoring up their crumbling support for increasingly unpopular unions, and that has come in the form of several polls with shall we say, interesting timing.

The New York Times is claiming the public supports the public sector unions, which is a claim that seems to run directly counter to the weak support for unions in solidarity protests held over the course of the weekend.

Public Policy Polling is claiming that the citizens of Wisconsin wouldn't elect Scott Walker if the election was held now, which is both utterly irrelevant, and ignores Walker's soaring popularity and raised profile as he stands against the best efforts the Democratic Party can throw against him.

Pew also make s a run at claiming Walker's support is less than that of the unions.

It is no mistake that the pro-union, pro-liberal media so closely aligned with Organizing for America (Obama's campaign organization) is doing all it can to support it's most powerful lobby. These are 11th hour attempts to claim public opinion favors the continuing exploitation of the taxpayer by government workers, despite the obvious falseness of that statement as shown in November's elections.

If the power of government union labor falters and then falls in left-friendly Wisconsin, it signals the beginning of the end of the government unions and the real possibility of scaling back the bloat of government. This terrifies the socialists currently in control of the Democratic Party, including the milquetoast currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

They fear nothing more than a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Funny that Walker could make a run for president with the stance he has taken.

What I find interesting about the sample is that they asked for the youngest person over 18 to talk to, the sample is of "adults" not registered voters or the much preferred "likely voter" and (of greatest interest to me) the sample got three times the national average of both public employees (or their family) and union members (or their family members)

Might this skew the results just a bit?

I don't remember if it was Mark Twain or Will Rogers who said:
There are LIES
There are DAMN LIES
and then there are Stastics.
I, for one, do not believe in these fixed polls and I believe most Americans are seeing thru the BS these liberals try to pass off as fact.
