In Walker's Wisc., One Thing Truely Has Certainty

Ah, certainty:

Gov. Walker and Republicans in the spin machine tell us endlessly that without it, we're doomed to stagnation - - in other words, the status quo - - because business will never come here and create jobs.

Well, you can take to the bank the certainty that when Walker speaks, there's a better-than-50-50 chance you might not be getting a straight story:

"False" findings continue to accompany more Walker statements vetted by PolitiFact than "true," even if you give him more credit than he deserves for a buncha half-truths.

Case in point, from just last Sunday, where the findings include "exactly two-thirds of the drop Walker mentions happened on his predecessor’s watch," and "muddies the water," and "misleading," and "critical facts are left out..."

Scott Walker says success in office reflected in 2-point drop in unemployment rate from time he decided to run for governor

We've tracked his truthiness deficits on this blog repeatedly since 2011- - and here is Walker's current, 56%-44% false-to-true record:
