Airline Jobs Win Was "Team Effort," Walker Not Mentioned
Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker's self-serving news release in the wake of Republic Airlines' job creation announcement earlier this week did not persuade the editorial writers at the Journal Sentinel to include the County Exec/gubernatorial candidate by name in their praise.
Maybe they remembered Walker's "lipstick-on-a-pig" dismissal of the Milwaukee 7 in 2005 - - reprised here.
Gov. Jim Doyle, whose business expansion tax credit plan helped seal the deal, was lauded in the editorial, and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, an early M-7 supporter and organization co-chair, got the last word.
Maybe actions do speak louder than words.
The MJS going out of it's way to not include Scott Wlaker in it's praise . . .
James - are you really that disingenuous to act like that is something new or significant?
To Anon Jim: The editorial is significant. Remember that the paper endorsed Walker against Reimer and Taylor.
Or the fact that it is easier to bring a few jobs from Denver here than to make new capital investments in another city, while getting a rob-Peter-to-pay-Paul government goodie. Does nothing but amplify Republic's ROI. Classic case of rent-seeking.
I repeat: The jobs merely shifted from Denver. NEW JOBS HAVE NOT BEEN CREATED.
Who are Reimer & Taylor?
David Reimer and Sen. Lena Taylor were Walker's two most recent opponents - - '04 and '08.
My apologies James, I was being facetious.
While I still have no clue who David Riemer is/was other than some xyz stuffed shirt bureaucrat Doyle got to run, know all too well who Lena "Don't you know who I am" Taylor is.
Wonder how many times she had to plead the 5th last week before they gave her immunity from prosecution in the Toni Clark grand jury investigation.
