Last night after Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch secured victories in the Wisconsin recall election, Sarah Palin posted the following congratulatory message on her Facebook page to the people of Wisconsin:
Congratulations to the people of Wisconsin for standing by strong leaders who made tough decisions in dire circumstances that have begun to turn their great state back to prosperity. Leadership is doing what is right, not what is popular. Both Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch are shining examples of this ideal. Elected leaders must do what we elect them to do – lead! – not follow polls or focus on only re-election. A special congratulations to Lt. Gov. Kleefisch who overcame much personal adversity, stood by her governor, and embraced her Tea Party roots.
On Wisconsin! Forward!
