Name calling, half truths, untruths and personal attacks are what you hear from Mary Burke and her campaign people about Gov. Scott Walker these days.
Then again, what would you expect, in light of Walker’s marvelous track record and results thus far in his governorship? When his opposition is inexperienced, has no really good track record, and no significant plan to sustain the Walker enviable progress in Wisconsin, Burke is relenting to platitudes at best, to and including dastardly remarks against him.
One example is outside “help” being offered to Burke, as in the case of Democrat leader, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
On Sept. 4, Schultz stated that Walker is dragging women of Wisconsin backwards by the hair in his war against them. This untruth hit the cable news network and talk radio big time, as the Walker administration has actually furnished millions of dollars thus far on behalf of women in Wisconsin. But Burke did not react to the Schultz attack. Her silence speaks for itself. Schultz did apologize later.
Another untruth from Burke is her comment that a woman who tried to get a teaching job in Neenah was turned away due to Act 10, so got a job in Minnesota instead. Not true. John McCormck of the Weekly Standard dug into this, and found Neenah flourishing, has many openings, and gets a about 200 applications per opening, and John Lehman, vice president of the Neenah School Board also said that after Act 10, they increased starting pay from $34,000 to $40,500. They also re-opened two closed elementary school due to Act 10. Lehman also said there were no layoffs of teachers in the his district.
So, I recommend that people read what has really been accomplished during Walker’s time as Wisconsin’s governor, and to ignore the negative name calling being spread in the public square against him. Take note of facts such as Walker’s overwhelming acceptance by Wisconsin businesses, his reduction in unemployment, his creation of jobs and new businesses, his tax relief and personal income growth, and his increase in public education funding, just to name a few, are all documented proof of Walker’s success as governor.
Seeing the facts shall surely garner your vote to re-elect Walker in November.
