Drone Walker Army again Blames Former Gov. Doyle for Great Recession!!!

It seems the drone army of "Stand with Walker" zombies actually believe former Governor Jim Doyle caused the Great Recession. For at least two years the state press never corrected Scott Walker's insanely ridiculous talking point that the job losses and soaring deficit were the result of Doyle's policies and by association, Walker opponent Mary Burke. Not the Great Recession.

These roving bands of know-it-all brainiacs are tweeting and retweeting the "Doyle destroyed the global economy" rhetoric all the time, with comments like this:

Even though Doyle, like all governors, went through the same financial hell (after supply side economics collapsed), it's Bobacheck and the others that will never admit their ideological failure: 

How about the real story:
The U.S. Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission reported its findings in January 2011. It concluded that "the crisis was avoidable and was caused by: Widespread failures in financial regulation, including the Federal Reserve’s failure to stem the tide of toxic mortgages; Dramatic breakdowns in corporate governance including too many financial firms acting recklessly and taking on too much risk; An explosive mix of excessive borrowing and risk by households and Wall Street that put the financial system on a collision course with crisis; Key policy makers ill prepared for the crisis, lacking a full understanding of the financial system they oversaw; and systemic breaches in accountability and ethics at all levels.“
And no mention of Governor Jim Doyle/Mary Burke?

And what does Doyle have to do with the fact that new home sales are down by more than 10% in each of the last 2 months (the original Tweet that the troll responded to)?

Weren't those two rounds of tax cuts supposed to make our economy take off? Oh wait, maybe it was the recall election of 2012 (after which job growth slowed down for the next 12 months).

These losers will never have the guts to admit trickle down DOES NOT WORK, AND HASNT WORKED FOR THREE DECADES.
