Walker tries to bury his divisiveness

Wisconsin's divide-and-conquer - - famous video here - - GOP Governor Scott Walker strung together some jaw-dropping self-serving propaganda during one of his carefully-staged, fact-free, end-of-the year interviews.

If they gave out medals for performances like this, just hand him the gold:

"The best thing people can do is try to govern for everyone — particularly when you’re in an executive position, probably even more than a legislative," Walker said in an interview last week. "It’s one of the things I think I valued in my time being a county executive before being governor, because it made me realize, even in the things you say and how you say them, you’ve got to be careful about, because you realize you’re speaking on behalf of all the people in your given state or jurisdiction…"  
Walker said Wednesday he's also made a point to include people who signed the petition to recall him from office in 2012.  
No doubt he forgot or hoped to bury forever his racially-charged dog whistle shout against the majority-minority big City of Milwaukee a few miles east down the highway which he made at a 2012 campaign rally in Waukesha County's Oconomowoc Lake community.. 
People do not want to see Wisconsin "become another Milwaukee," Walker said.
By the way: Oconomowoc Lake, population 595, 97.3% white, two blacks, data show.

Surely plenty of other examples - - attacks on Planned Parenthood, public employees, K-12 and university educators. Send your lists.

Walker's internal polling has to be saying that people are sick of him and his self-centered, divide-and-conquer act. And the recent "nice guy with a sweater" act is so transparently calculated.

Let's see if his budget matches those words. I bet not

So now Walker,forgives those who signed the recall.They did a database of the signers, sent emails and harrassed them. Some people got threatening harassment messages to burn their homes down. Now Walker is making nice. The public won't buy it. Too many people were harrassed. The word is out.

That's just Walker setting us up for another bomb dropping.............while claiming he told us all about it.............this leopard can't change his spots ever!!!! How on earth can he even think that he governed for everyone when he was Milwaukee County Executive. Walker governs for one group and one group only......his donors!!!

Govern for everyone; invite-only events. One of these things is not like the other.

When is the last time Walker had an open event for any/all Wisconsinites to attend? Oh, ya, that's right, never.
