Our Governor Gets One Thing "Right"

Gov. Walker said in the State of the State speech that Wisconsin is headed in the "right direction."

"Right," as in to the political right?  OK, give him that.

Walker has infused Wisconsin with a jaw-droppingly far-right, fact-depleted, anti-worker, anti-woman, anti-urban, anti-teacher, anti-environment, tax-the-poor-a-little-heavier and split-the-state-down-the-middle agenda and (mean) spirit.

Yes, mean. He dropped a bomb on many middle-class citizens and gloried in it its sneaky, signature deceit.

There's no way that was right.

And if losing private sector jobs for six straight months- -  as the nation is adding jobs - -  and falling so far behind in his campaign pledge to create 250,000 private sector jobs - - by 2015 - - that he won't hit the pledge until 2029 - - well, go figure how that's the right track.

Here are a few other things he did not get right - - though he knew better.
