The war in Wisconsin continues as we get closer to the recall elections. Seems word on the street is that Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefischis a distant memory to the republican party. We would think in Wisconsin and around this country we all are in a fight for our very existence. Michelle Malkin writes about the war we have and we get a call to arms from Sarah Palin.
Now is the time for all good tea partiers to come to the aid of Wisconsin. Fiscally conservative leaders in the Badger State are under coordinated siege from Big Labor, the White House, the liberal media and the judiciary. The yearlong campaign of union thuggery, family harassment and intimidation of Republican donors and businesses is about to escalate even further. This is the price the Right pays for doing the right thing.
The outlook for the unhinged Left’s secondary targets, however, is not so bright. Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, a tea party candidate who is not part of the GOP establishment, is being treated as collateral damage by the party. Outside of Wisconsin, most conservative activists are not even aware that she may be booted from office for simply doing her job. Kleefisch told me that on a recent fundraising swing in D.C., national GOP leaders were shocked to learn of her plight.
Kleefisch, a 36-year-old colon cancer survivor, is a fighter who points to her two young daughters when I ask why she’s in the political arena. What message would it send to young tea party moms across the country if Walker survived but Kleefisch was hung out to dry? Will Beltway Republican strategists and donors who constantly harp about the need to diversify the party step up to the plate? [Donate to Kleefisch’s defense here.]
From Sarah Palin, a rousing call to arms — As Goes Wisconsin, so Goes America; Support Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch:
Governor Walker has left the far Left unhinged, so he’s had to amass a war chest to fend off the lies and dirty dealings in the capitol; and, thankfully, it’s predicted he’ll survive his recall.
But the recall fight that is just as important is Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch’s. Please click this link to help her.
She’s being thrown beyond the wolf pack – she’s also under the GOP establishment’s bus because this Tea Party “Mama Grizzly” beat the establishment candidate when she got elected. (And dang, it’s uncomfortable under that chassis!) Rebecca must be thinking, “With friends like these, who needs enemies?” Worse than seeing radical Leftists attack and make things up about a Conservative female opponent is when supporters on the Right sit on their thumbs and act as if there’s nothing they can do to help. Come on! When all else fails you can at least tell the truth!
Read Michelle’s article to get the full story. The problems with the republican party goes back to 2008 when voters were told that John McCain was a conservative and the person to vote for against Barack Obama. We were told to vote for him no matter what his beliefs were ( McCain Fiengold), no matter how much he wanted the press to love him, no matter how much he would rather cross the aisle and work with democrats then fight the liberal left. It wasn’t until Sarah Palin was his running mate that the base backed the moderate McCain.
Do conservatives have to go through this again? Looks like the base will have to help people like Rebecca Kleefisch win the war against the left. If the republican party doesn’t get on board with most Americans, they will be a thing of the past. The ball is in their court.
