What Scott Walker has really done for Wisconsin, and it ain't pretty!!!

Isn't it amazing how Scott Walker doesn't seem to be getting any heat over his failed jobs plan, lack of business creation and an ever growing one-size-fits-all top down big government takeover of everything? This is what he calls success? Yes.
It was this obvious when he was County Executive.

This is the same blase' attitude the media took that helped Walker get elected three times as Milwaukee County executive. They're about to become accomplices again when the stakes are even higher.

Ironically, Walker and his GOP pirates are flush in tax revenues thanks to Obama's failed economic recovery plan and stimulus. It's nothing they've done.

Thankfully, a few articles are seeing the light of day, but still not enough to be any kind of clarion call to give this guy the boot. 

Today, we can take comfort with the following take down of Walker that may seem hyperbolic, but sadly isn't:
jsonline-JamesRowen: He will probably blame the weather for yet another dismal Wisconsin jobs report released Thursday - - as if it were warm and sunny in the other 49 states - - but leading the nation in new jobless claims counted by the federal government blows another hole in Scott Walker's failed record as a jobs creator … more new jobless claims in the week ending February 1st than big states like New York, Ohio and others: Change WI +5,041.
It’s also interesting to note, according to the labor department's data where Gov. Chris Christie is neck and neck with Walker: (1st Place) Wisconsin (+5,041), New York (+4,830), Pennsylvania (+2,448), (4th Place) New Jersey (+1,853), and Ohio (+1,780). Again, that's success?
Walker is now in the absurd position of embarking on campaigns for re-election and national stature with an ineffective, stumbling record of economic leadership, by the numbers.

He might be able to find … one month in a bygone quarter where Wisconsin incorporated more scout packs and ping-pong clubs than other states … but when Walker ran for Governor it was on jobs, jobs, jobs, of which there are fewer, fewer, fewer. More, here … Act 10's enforced austerity stalled the recovery here, that instituting business tax cuts and hiring credits while handing back to everyday Wisconsinites the surplus at the rate of a Happy Meal a week are worn-out bumper-sticker palliatives, that cutting state revenue to big cities where poor people live while raising taxes on low-income citizens - - PolitiFact gave Walker a "broken promise" for that - - only embed poverty - - as does Walker's opposition to raising the poverty-enforcing minimum wage … turning back federal billions set aside for Amtrak rail and train construction, and for health-care expansion, too, further starved home budgets, consumer spending and growth statewide.

The numbers don't lie. After three years of Walker, we're #1 in failed promises because inept leadership … confuses ideology with innovation. It's time for Walker to own the reality and consequences of his malaise…
