Absentee Governor can't manage the state here or on the road. Real presidential material.

Guess what happens when, as governor, you’re never around? You make bad decisions, and have to manage problems from far off areas of the country. That’s our Scott Walker. 

The question is; can he really get away with a record of bad management and poor political choices?

Walker’s latest show of “planned” cluelessness may attempt to shift the blame, but he also unintentionally shows us how bad he is at managing anything, and that includes nearly bankrupting Milwaukee County, aides breaking campaign laws in his own office, forgot about loans handed out by WEDC, and getting the boot at Marquette for dirty campaigning. Anyone see a pattern here?
Such a small man...
WSJ-Mary Spicuzza: Gov. Scott Walker said Wednesday he did not know that the $500,000 sporting heritage grant lawmakers added to his budget plan was being steered toward the United Sportsmen of Wisconsin Foundation … “In our case, this was something that the Legislature added,” Walker said. “And it’s something where really my only involvement directly in it was when we issued our vetoes at the end of the process, and that was because it was made known to me at that time that there was a potential risk of some federal money.”
Like Sgt. Schultz used to say, “I see nothing!”

The moral corruption and cronyism of the United Sportsmen debacle shows...the “process worked?” So says one of the most irresponsible Republicans to ever control the states purse strings, Rep. John Nygren. Insulting doesn't even begin to describe the following comment:
“Every step along the way, the process worked,” he said. “There may not have been information that was accurate at every step of the process, but the process did work.”Not much you can add to that.
Anyone want to see where things weren't "accurate," so this doesn't happen again? Or that withholding important information pertaining to a bill’s passage might be problematic and intentionally deceptive...crooked even? Or have that information shared with others? Nothing, really?
Democratic lawmakers sought to discuss the circumstances of the grant. But Rep. John Nygren, R-Marinette, co-chairman of the Joint Finance Committee, said that the matter would not be up for discussion and that the grant was rescinded.
And like the strict parental figure he likes to project, Nygren won’t have any more of this. 

And you'll love this:
Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder, who has since left the Legislature to join the Walker administration, (and who took) the lead on the sporting heritage grant told the State Journal last week he is now a “private citizen” and had no comment.

  1. The excuse of "... a potential risk of [losing] some federal money," sure didn't seem to be a problem with $800M in federal railroad cash or now with federal health care cash or earlier with federal ISP infrastructure communication cash. Is sportsman's cash worth more or denominated in higher valued dollars or another world currency?

    Walker didn't know anything about the grant, so obviously there can't be any connection between that and Suder's new appointment.
