Fretful Walker fearing wave. Again

Observed: Walker keeps saying to the faithful, "Wake up!"

Observation: It takes a worried man to keep singing that same same old song.

Gov. Scott Walker will warn of a tough fight in the fall... when he speaks to Republicans Saturday at their state convention in Milwaukee.
"We need to wake up," Walker will say, according to excerpts released by his campaign. 
Sleep-walking with baggage, also visible last year, are we?

As they say, all one's wounds are self-inflicted

As long as you're doing Kingston trio references, it's a good time to note that Johnny Mathis is coming to town. "Chances are" there WILL be a blue wave- "Wonderful,Wonderful!"

A logical person might ask: “If Governor Walker is so worried, and the situation is so dire, why is he even running for a third term? Isn’t it perfectly honorable to serve two full terms and move on?”

Yes, it is. That’s exactly what Jim Doyle did in 2010. He considered a third term, but saw the Tea Party tidal wave coming and wisely called it a day. So why is Walker clinging to the job and forging ahead in 2018? Because he doesn’t have a choice.

Back when Doyle was young, he finished his bachelor’s degree and then graduated from law school. Walker, on the other hand, dropped out of college and has spent his entire adulthood running for political office. He doesn’t know how to do anything else.

If he leaves office, voluntarily or involuntarily, in January 2019, Scott Walker will be a 51-year-old man with a high school diploma and no work experience outside of politics.

Hey! Maybe he can get a job at Foxconn!

Tom- You've hit on why Walker is running for a third term and is flailing and panicking so much. HE HAS NOWHERE ELSE TO GO, and the concept of having to get a real job scares the daylights out of him. His whole career has been one big grift, and if the musical chairs ever stop and he doesn't have an elected gig, he has no idea how to handle it.

So let's make it so.
