Scott Walker Suddenly Unimportant To Main Stream Media...

Scott Walker, the Republican governor of Wisconsin, used to be in the spotlight of the main stream media on a regular basis. Opposed by the unions in Wisconsin and the left in general, Walker's conservative policies for the state drew massive protests from the left, with demonstrators being organized and even bussed in from out of state by major unions, such as the SEIU.

The main stream media also supported the recall election, in which Walker, despite the protests and big money spent by left wing organizations, triumphed. But suddenly the mainstream media is very quiet about Walker and the state of Wisconsin. The reason is pretty clear to anyone paying attention.

Using conservative policies and principles, Scott Walker has turned the state of Wisconsin around. In the last three years, despite opposition from the left, he turned a projected $3.6 billion deficit into a $912 million surplus, brought down the unemployment rate, and is now proposing to “rebate the money in the form of tax cuts to the people, who own the money.”

Walker's success should be main stream news. It should be promoted as an example of what other failing states should do as well as what the federal government should be doing. But it's not being reported by anyone other than FOX News and conservative pundits.

Scott Walker life has been threatened, as has been the safety of his family. As Rush Limbaugh said just the other day - “They did everything they could to gin up hate, anger, tried to destroy his reputation, his career, and his life,” he said. “He hung in there. The state of Wisconsin instituted his policy reforms, de-emphasizing the role of unions in the state.”

It's working. And the left hates that. Limbaugh continued:

“He’s going to cut income taxes and property taxes, and he made the point that it’s not just a gimmick of budgeting or accounting. It’s the result of serious, significant policy changes,” Limbaugh said.

“Now, folks, what I just told you was not reported once anywhere in what you would consider mainstream media. It was not reported on one cable network, much less all of them. It was not reported in the New York Times, the Washington Post, or the LA Times,” he added. “It was reported in Wisconsin. There was an AP story on it, maybe some local papers picked it up, but just as a filler.”
“And to me, for us as conservatives, Wisconsin and Governor Walker, I mean, everything that we want to happen, happened there.”
The main stream media is simply ignoring this huge success story because they can't bear that thought of a conservative actually succeeding using conservative ideas, policies and principles. It goes against everything they believe and everything they have pushed for in the last 10 years or so. The main stream media has become a cheer leading squad for the Obama regime and liberalism in general and Scott Walker's success is literally a slap in their faces. How could that happen? 
All one need do is take a good look at the states and cities around the country that are failing and those that are thriving and look at their political leaders. Republican led states and cities are either thriving or in the advanced stages of a great recovery (look at Texas, Ohio, Florida, South Carolina....) and many of those led by Democrats are in huge financial trouble (New York, Michigan, California... Did I mention Detroit?) Liberal spending, liberal handouts and liberal tax increases hurt the economy. Bold, conservative moves make positive changes. The state of North Carolina cut unemployment benefits and the numbers of people who went back to work increased dramatically. Go figure.
New York's far-left liberal governor, Andrew Cuomo, detests conservatives and doesn't even want them in his state. Yet to increase business and employment in his state he is offering new businesses a 10 year tax free status if they come to New York. That's a conservative principle. He might say he got it from John F. Kennedy, who cut taxes for individuals and businesses during his administration, but Kennedy was far from being a liberal. He was a conservative Democrat.
As I said - Scott Walker's success in Wisconsin should be broadcast nationwide and around the world. It's proof that conservative principles work. And that's exactly why it won't be shared. Liberals, including the media, don't like conservative success because it goes against everything they believe in. And that's just too difficult to swallow. They want to keep believing that liberalism and liberal policies will bring prosperity to all - even though it's been proved a failure over and over. It makes one wonder...
