Walker's 250,000 Jobs Promise Was Such An Easy Target...

That GOP gubernatorial rival Mark Neumann saw right through it, 38 months ago:

Walker made the jobs claim Tuesday at a gathering of Wisconsin businessmen. He said he would create the jobs through six steps, which include lowering or freezing a range of taxes and limiting state regulations.

He declined to offer specifics, saying those details would emerge during the campaign.
Walker's primary opponent, former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann, also released a statement Wednesday ridiculing Walker's claim. Neumann quoted statistics that suggest Milwaukee has one of the nation's worst records of retaining jobs.

"If Scott Walker had a plan to bring jobs to Wisconsin he should have implemented it in Milwaukee sometime during the last eight years," Neumann said.

A Federal appeals court has ruled that the mountaintop mining practice of dumping rocks and dirt into streams is a violation of the Clean Water Act. The Guv can kiss his Gogebic open-pit mine and it's fictitious jobs goodbye.
