WMC's cheap new ad "corporate porn." Walker’s got nothing but empty predictions to run on.

Scott Walker has been peddling the same hocus pocus for years. His whole governorship is built on “predictions.” 

Economic “predictions” don’t amount to a hill of beans if reality shows us something completely different. But for low information voters and special interest groups, it’s all they've got.

The latest WMC internet ad is so misleading and poorly produced that for a group supposedly representing professional businesses, they’re doing their members a great disservice. I don't know about you, but rank amateurs come to mind. Or as I call it in the title, corporate porn. 


The ad may brag about being ahead of four Midwest states in weekly wages, but that doesn't point out how our state is still behind the nation in average wages. Is WMC touting the huge growth in government wages? Oops.
Journal Sentinel: Private-sector wages in Wisconsin rose 5% … It still lagged the U.S. private-sector average wage gains of 5.3% in the period. Wisconsin's average wages were $858 per week in the private sector, compared to the U.S. average of $1,008.

But Wisconsin led the nation in the growth of wages for state government workers, who saw their 2012 paychecks rise 14.6% to $1,099 a week. Wisconsin's public employees at municipal governments, school districts, police and county agencies didn't share the gains of their counterparts in state government.
Prediction, predictions. But where are the jobs? Again, Walker’s got nothing but empty predictions to run on. Any "suggestions" Scott? :
Fact or predictions?
Walker Press Release: The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia released its June leading economic indexes for states today.  Their data suggest Wisconsin will have the second strongest economic growth of any state in the nation over the next six months.
new report from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia is predicting Wisconsin’s economy will grow 3.14 percent on an annualized basis over the next six months, second best among all states … predict changes in economic performance going forward. 
Uppity Wisconsin just posted this latest Walker assessment:
An extensive analysis by the Sacramento Business Journal, shows that during Walker's time in office, his annual job growth rate or 1.07% ranks 40th in the nation
There's even more at Jake's Economic TA Funhouse.
