Robin Vos, a Racine Republican, is taking offense at a Democratic bumper sticker he claims shows a train slamming into Gov.-elect Scott Walker’s head in a bloody crash. He thinks Democrats should stop offering it.
The bumper sticker is available on the Wisconsin Democratic Party’s website. The sticker is emblazoned with the words “High Speed Fail.”
It’s not enough that the Democrats in Wisconsin were kicked to the curb in November.
It’s clear that they still don’t have a clue as to what hit them and why. . . .
One of Scott Walker’s main issues in winning the governor’s race was his intent to cancel the half-fast, car-speed train projected to run between Milwaukee and Madison. The federal government was to provide the initial $810 million to construct the choo-choo, but the operating cost would have to be picked up by state taxpayers, already facing a $200 million budget deficit, thanks to a lousy economy and fiscal mismanagement by outgoing Gov. Jim Doyle and the recently defeated legislative Democrats.
Walker correctly realized that the state couldn’t afford this “gift” from the Obama Regime and announced plans to kill the train, whose average speed would have been about 55 mph, lower than the speed of the average car going between Milwaukee and Madison, plus the car actually takes you where you want to go. He also recognized there was neither the need nor the demand for the choo-choo, which, like all rail mass transit projects, low-balls cost and overestimates ridership.
Naturally, the choo-choo zealots went apoplectic. . . .
