Illinois cleaned Wisconsin's clock in job creation last month even though Scott Walker thought he had that issue covered by putting up his silly and now self-parodying signs at the Illinois border - -
ROCK COUNTY (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker unveiled new road signs today announcing that Wisconsin is open for business.
Gov. Walker puts up new signs targeted at Illinois businessesPosted: Jan 18, 2011 8:11 AM CST
- - but Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, sent out into the world with absolutely zero experience in the world of job creation, was talking jobs trash at a meeting in St. Louis just months ago:
"Illinois, we're coming your way...And by the way: did taxpayers in our broke state pay for her trip to that meeting - - of the 2011 Smart Girl Summit?
Smart Girl Politics Action is proud to announce details for Smart Girl Summit 2011. SGS11 will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Downtown St. Louis on July 29 and 30. The 3rd Annual Smart Girl Summit will bring together top conservative voices with activists like you. This is a conference by conservative women, for conservative women (and some conservative men!).And what was in her SGS "swag bag?"
The $125 Ticket price includes Friday night's banquet dinner, lunch on Saturday, and in usual SGP fashion your SGS swag bag.
Remember. too that it was Kleefisch who tried recruiting cold calls to Illinois employers, but the jobs numbers in favor of Illinois last month - - their +30,000, ours was a -9,700 - - show that didn't cut it.
