About Walker pledges breakable, inkable

Quietly noted by Walker on Twitter without irony, or the words, "OUR LEGACY," "four years late," and "sorry about the tattoos," this:
 Dec 20More...We also added nearly 10,000 Private-Sector Jobs in November, bringing the total jobs created since we’ve taken office to over 250,000.
Oh. Thanks for the info.

So you might also enjoy this understated headline and a few classic Walker lines taken from a news story on December 23rd, 2011 - - almost exactly seven years ago when it was obvious that Walker's signature campaign pledge was a farce:
After one year, 250,000 jobs pledge looking harder to attain for Walker
And while he wishes job creation numbers were better, Walker emphasized the pledge was over a four-year period. 
"We weren't going to see them all happen in one month," he said... 
"I want my Cabinet secretaries to have branded across their heads, '250,000 jobs,'" Walker said at a December 2010 meeting of the Dairy Business Association. 
Just to close one loop, note the $2+million donations to Walker and GOP campaigns by big dairy-linked interests during recent years

And as to the inking and the jobs' pledge, I'm not sure which option would have carried more pain: making it and having it arguably help drag its maker down, or getting and sporting that tattoo, or having it removed.

And he is lying about 250,000 after 2 terms. I wish he'd go back to tweeting pics of his grossly greasy lunch bag. This does show you, however, that the grifter has not given up on living on the public dole.

The media across Wisconsin won't report on the failure of the origin promise, nor the way Scott Walker is now falsely claiming "success". The media took this off the table by catapulting Walker's lie that this was all just a "Big and Bold"(tm) ideal.

Walker cannot, on his own, make a political comeback; but he can with the continued help by the same propaganda tools that propelled him into the Governor's Mansion.

We need to push-back hard against this, let his media shills know we won't but their garbage anymore, and refuse to patronize the advertiserz that prop-up Walker's disinformation network.
