Walker saddled again with poor job-creation numbers

It will be fun to watch Wrong-Way Walker out on his Preposterous Presidential Pratfall Tour touting his "bold' performance when for the umpteenth time the key federal numbers show private-sector job growth in Wisconsin lagging the nation.

This time the fresh data cover a federally-measured rolling twelve-month period and show  Wisconsin was 32nd among the states in job growth, and was creating jobs at somewhat more than half the tally that would have been needed if that 250,000 new jobs promise was anything more than a bumper-sticker printed by a consultant.

Call it more proof that there is little content in his "whole theme of things."

The answer:

Tax cuts, deregulation and school vouchers.

The question:

The question does not matter.

Great idea! Start calling walker names and repeat it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again!

That will surely ensure your points are only read by the folks that already understand how walker undermines Wisconsin and no one else will even consider, much less read what you post.

I have a journalism degree -- yup -- this is what we were taught. All of the pros do it.

Anon, 1:32pm- Not only does the question not matter, RESULTS don't matter in right-wing world.

Anon 6:39pm- The projection is quite strong with you, isn't it? We can only post the facts, and the absurdity that is Scott Walker. If people are too weak-minded to listen and look for themselves, that's not our fault.

But I'm sure you were throwing out the same line about another Dubya 10 years ago.

What did anyone expect when Walker first got into office and chopped funding for Tech Schools and job training. That put Wisconsin way behind right at the start. It was a really dumb move on his part. When corporations began asking for more skilled workers, he saw the light and put the money back plus a little bit more. That was also a ploy to try to make himself look as though he was really pushing worker training. Had he left the training programs alone to begin with, there would have not been a shortage of skilled workers. He's not the only governor to do something like this though. Over past four decades I've seen Wisconsin governors pull money from tech schools and then put it back. It never made sense to me and still doesn't that you would take money away from a place that's training people for life-sustaining jobs. Because of what he did four years ago, it will take Wisconsin a long time to catch up.
