|Scott Walker breaks jobs promise|
Jud Lounsbury at Uppity Wisconsin has the latest Scott Walker lie, this one in a new Walker TV spot claiming credit for jobs created by a Milwaukee suburban manufacturer during the administration of Gov. Jim Doyle.
Don't look for a retraction from Scott Walker, a noted pathological liar, still refusing to face the people of Wisconsin in even one town hall-style, question-and-answer session to explain why Walker's failure to deliver on his campaign pledge to create 250,000 new jobs is the fault of ... someone else.
In the Spring, Walker took a new tract and said he was just aiming high, (Spicuzza, Wisconsin State Journal) not promising, despite the fact that the 250,000s jobs promise was unequivocal and repeated incessantly during the 2010 campaign.
Walker will be likely to hit only half of 250,000 jobs by November.
Even the Republican-spinning Politifact column of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (James B. Nelson) admits Walker has a "ways to go," calling the promise "stalled" today.
This is RepublicanSpeak for Walker Jobs Promise Broken.
Walker's new campaign site on "Scott Walker on Jobs" now omits mention of the 250,000 new jobs campaign promise.
On August 7, Stu Rothenberg of Roll Call changed the rating of the 2014 Wisconsin governor's race from Leans Republican to Pure Tossup.
One can see why the Republican Party's corrupt attorney general, J.B. Van Hollen, and Walker are working feverously to get permission from the federal Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to reinstate the GOP's voter obstruction law, the photo voter ID law, still enjoined from being enforced after being found violative of the United States Constitution and the Voting Right Act by U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman in April 2014.
Appellate briefs for Van Hollen and Walker's motion are due next Tuesday, August 19.
