If Scott Walker had campaigned in 2010 with a promise of creating 100,000 new jobs instead of 250,000 it is hard to believe he would have won the election for governor. His critics would have cried “Wisconsin can do better.”
However, in 2014 he is touting his four-year accomplishment of 100,000 new jobs as a good thing.
He and his supporters even have promoted a dubious number of 20,000 new business to highlight his term in office. I would not put much value in that number when Wisconsin is dead last in the Midwest in job creation. What kind of businesses are these?
To paraphrase an old saying, Wisconsin voters should be asking, “If at first term you do not succeed, why why again?”
