QUOTES OF THE WEEK 


"Tonight we tell Wisconsin, we tell our country, and we tell people all across the globe that voters really do want leaders that stand up and make the tough decisions.”
Governor Scott Walker after defeating Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in Tuesday’s recall.


“Spare me the spin. This was a whupping.”
Liberal writer Matthew Rothschild in the Isthmus about the recall, won by Scott Walker by 7 points.


"I think the Democrats are going to have a circular firing squad on their hands for about three weeks. Obama is going to show up in a month or two and say, 'Hey guys, remember me, you need to help me get re-elected.' I think a lot of Democrats around here are very disappointed in this president. They're going to look back at him, 'Thanks a lot, pal, we appreciate the help.’ Wisconsin has given their stamp of approval to Gov. Walker's successful reforms that balanced the budget, put people back to work and put government back on the side of the people.”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus


"Recalling a politician who didn’t abuse his office is crazy. Every day already feels like Election Day in America; if we’re going to start calling a vote every time a politician looks vulnerable or unveils policies that offend a particular interest group, every day actually will be Election Day in America. Personally, I have mixed feelings about unions, and a negative impression of Walker, but the people of Wisconsin hired the guy to do a job for four years, and if unions don’t like the way he’s doing it they should try to beat him in 2014."
Mike Grunwald, TIME magazine


“The private sector is doing just fine.”
President Obama


“And, I care about the long term debt of the country a lot. Remember me, I’m the only guy that gave you four surplus budgets out of the eight I sent.” 
Bill Clinton at a joint Obama/Clinton fundraiser


“You are not special. You are not exceptional. Yes, you've been pampered, cosseted, doted upon, helmeted, bubble-wrapped. Yes, capable adults with other things to do have held you, kissed you, fed you, wiped your mouth, wiped your bottom, trained you, taught you, tutored you, coached you, listened to you, counseled you, encouraged you, consoled you and encouraged you again. You've been nudged, cajoled, wheedled and implored. You've been feted and fawned over and called sweetie pie. ... But do not get the idea you're anything special. Because you're not.”
Wellesley High School (Massachusetts) teacher David McCullough, Jr., in a commencement speech to graduating seniors. You can read the entire speech here.



OUTRAGE OF THE WEEK


Liberal talk show host hates the national anthem.



MOST UNDER-REPORTED STORY OF THE WEEK


So, WHO was behind that violent Occupy rally in Milwaukee the other night?



MOST OVER-HYPED STORY OF THE WEEK


Wisconsin's recall...and rightfully so.



STRANGEST, MOST UNUSUAL STORY OF THE WEEK


Ted Turner said WHAT?


You think you've heard about every crazy lawsuit? Try this one.

It's been banned in Idaho.



That's it for Week-ends. Thanks for stopping by.
