Walker The 2016 GOP Front-Runner?

Front-runner for the nomination, or front-runner for the title of Job-Killer-In-Chief:

On the Walker watch front: I'm not sure you want one pundit to help you peak this early...and another drop of 8,500 jobs in March that puts you farther behind your politically-dumb pledge to create 250,000 new jobs won't help, either:

Wisconsin lost 8,500 nonfarm jobs in March compared to February, according to preliminary, seasonally adjusted employment figures released Friday by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics....

And it cut the jobs growth under Gov. Scott Walker to 58,900, a 2.1 percent gain since he took over in January 2011.

Of course, the right-wing DC bubble-world apparently doesn't know the details behind Walker's reign as governor, because it claims he's been "scandal free" in Wisconsin. I guess 5 of his appointees being convicted of felonies in 2 years don't count, and neither does the redistricting scandal that's about ready to blow open.

Methinks that much like many parts of Wisconsin that reside out of the 262 and 414 area codes, the more you get to know how Scott Walker operates, the less you tend to think he's leader material.

Not to mention being fourth from the bottom in entrepreneurship -- per the Kaufman Foundation.

That entrepreneurship stat is what led to the best description of Walker's performance on jobs.

"We suck. We're bad."

And it isn't getting better. Then again right-wing bubble worlders don't really care much about results. Just poses.
