(JSOnline)   With Wisconsin now 44th in the union in private sector job growth, Governor Walker steps forward to take responsibility for Wisconsin's economic state. Just kidding, he blames it all on the union protests and recall elections   (jsonline.com) divider line 228

Republicans are assholes.

I'd be disinclined to move my business to any state stupid enough to elect Scott Walker.

Yup. And Texas' skyrocketing teen pregnancy rate has nothing to do with their abstinence-only programs.

Interesting take on similar outcomes!

5 years after Obama takes office  - BUT BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

2 years after Walker takes office - HIS ADMINISTRATION IS THE WORST EVAR!
 
2013-03-30 08:36:56 AM
That all happened 1-2 years ago. If "uncertainty" was such a goddamned factor, it would have disappeared the day after the recall election, wouldn't it have?
 
2013-03-30 08:37:10 AM
He's just following President Obama's lead.  Nothing is ever his fault, either.
 
2013-03-30 08:37:16 AM
Step 1) Go out of your way to make a lot of people really angry.
Step 2) Blame your personal failure on how angry people got.

It's not just Walker, a lot of Republicans do it.

Ahh, the old 'uncertainty' bullshiat.  Because God knows, no one ever started a business without the sure and complete knowledge that it would succeed and they'd become richer than Croesus.
 
2013-03-30 08:48:30 AM
And the people that voted for him KNEW that already--it's always the libtards and the unions.

Next time, show up for the recall election.

There are a lot of bad things to say about Mr. Walker.

But it's amazing that you can't tell his head is not sitting straight even with guidelines. Mr. Walker also towers at six foot three, an implausible height for an FAS baby. The only part of Mr. Walker's face that could possibly suggest FAS is his narrow upper lip. His philtrum is quite defined and his eyes are not horizontally narrow.
 
2013-03-30 08:52:20 AM
Yeah...that's why employers are flocking to Illinois over Wisconsin.
 
2013-03-30 08:53:27 AM
Actually, it you want to google them, and I'm too lazy to do so, there are lots of amusing Walker quotes about how the jobs will come as soon as he is elected... oops I mean a dramatic upturn right after the recall elections, I mean uh, we don't need jobs, jobs are for liberals.

The only way your arguments could make sense is if you believed that Bush's tax cuts and two wars -- things Bush actually did -- had no negative effect on the Federal budget deficit and debt.

Last time I checked, there's no Jubilee Year every time a new president takes office where debts and deficits are zeroed out, tax cuts most certainly reduced tax receipts, and two wars most certainly cost a lot of money, therefore bringing up what Bush did makes perfect sense in some discussions, even ten years later.

Walker's excuses aren't comparable. His arguments aren't history, they're mythology.

I'm tired of Republicans using that phrase when it's so obviously ironic. Even their media can't own a mistake.

Look, I fark up often. Hell, I just farked up ten minutes ago. Thing is, I own my mistakes and go back to the drawing board. All I ask of the GOP is to once in a while admit to screwing up. It's unbecoming of a gentleman to lash out at nebulous enemies like the liberal media or the War on Easter/Christmas.

It's called being a man. So sack up, you pansies.

55% of people moving in 2012 for Wisconsin were outbound (moving out of state). I suspect that the youth is booking it out of Wisconsin as fast as they can. To be fair, that is happening in plenty of other states as well (including my own), but still not a good sign for Wisconsin.

Personally, I wouldn't move to Wisconsin... not a chance.

You can't reason with someone who's entire premise is based upon a coordinated effort to pretend that recent history never happened.

It is best just to point and laugh.

The most amusing thing about this is the idea that major companies will completely uproot themselves from their current home state, spend hundreds of thousands if not millions in relocation costs, potentially upset relationships and contracts with existing customers, potentially lose many valuable employees who do not want to relocate...all because they might save a bit on their tax bill. And they'll reach this decision within a year of the governor who is going to do this being elected.

I'm not saying it doesn't happen, because clearly it does, but any notion that businesses were just going to flock to Wisconsin like refugees fleeing a war-torn country was ridiculous on it's face.

That's why our unemployment rate is so low here.  The people that live here don't mind working.

Went to Wisconsin for grad school in 2010 just as Walker was starting to throw away jobs, finished in 2012, and moved to Kentucky because the jobs were better.

The reason that Wisconsin's unemployment rate is lower than the national average is an excess of old retired people that vote for Walker and don't count as unemployed. And the population will will keep getting older  as young smart people leave to take advantage of the nice jobs in other states.

A solid 8%, while neighboring states like Iowa and Minnesota are at 6.5% and dropping. But, hey, at least your doing better than Michigan!

And just remember his opponent both times was the mayor of one of the five poorest (and one of the most segregated) cities in America that the rest of the state felt offered no plan. Our Democrats have been skating by for decades on winning Madison and Milwaukee and praying they could scrape together enough rural votes to win statewide races.  They were fine until Feingold got caught in the 2010 massacre now the people that can win a statewide race for them is down to two people who won't run for anything less than US Senate.

pffft...  amateurs.  Here in Maine, we're ranked 48th.  It's not the democrats, republicans or anything in between.  It's the economical structure.  If you don't have a middle class, you don't have a place for the lower class to work (usually food service for the middle class who has the elasticity in it's budget to go out to eat).

The REAL median income here in Maine is about $25-30k.  How the hell are people supposed to support economic growth when they have to choose between a tank of gas and 'meals and entertainment'?

It's ugly all the way around, but it aint politics.  It's people quality.  We should be hiring the guy down the street to repair our whatevers, and pick up our curbside refuse.  But we've taken the 'big box pill' here, and it's resulted in no loyalty whatsoever.  We assume that that guy will make it without our support.  Only problem is, EVERYONE is thinking the same thing.  So there goes another 'private sector job'.  The buy local campaigns need to be taken seriously, or we are putting our own nails in our coffins.

That's not his eyes. He just can't hold his head up straight. When he was in middle school, the picture day photographer said tilt your head to the right, and that's how it stayed, permanently.
