Twitter Has Walker's Spin About Leading US in October Job Losses

Wisconsin posted job losses for the fourth month in a row, and the October plunge led the nation.

I'd wondered how Walker would spin it.

And here 'tis, pulled off Walker's Twitter account as posted on his official website:
GovWalker From 2007-10, WI lost more than 150,000 private sector jobs. From Jan - Oct 2011, WI added more than 20,000 private sector jobs. yesterday · reply · retweet · favorite
Not mentioned: the Revenue Department's analysis that Walker's 250,000 new-jobs promise - - central to his narrow win over Tom Barrett - - by 2014 is unattainable.

And, in Walker's words, all is well here in Wisconsin. Tell me more.

James- Good catch on this. Not only is it a bizarre response, but if it's some kind of Jim Doyle rip, it's wrong, because Wisconsin was creating jobs well past the national average in 2010, and has badly trailed the U.S. under Walker.

If he wants someone to blame for job losses from 2007-2010, why doesn't he look at his "cousin", Dubya?
