Scott Walker is in trouble, and it showed this weekend at the debate, fumbling the central issue of the race: Jobs.
"I don't know how many of you watched the debate last night, but Governor Walker said in the debate that he didn't think Wisconsin had a jobs problem. Right?" Mary Burke said. "Well, I want to be a governor who acknowledges the challenges that we have and is going to focus on the ideas that are going to move us ahead and will make sure that Wisconsin has a vibrant, growing, thriving economy so that when you graduate from college, there are going to be job opportunities for you to be able to stay in this state." (Bice, Glauber and Barrett, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)
The extraordinary lengths to which Scott Walker, Wisconsin's corrupt attorney general J.B. Van Hollen and Republican Party have gone to exclude registered Wisconsin voters from voting reveal how desperate Walker is.
To the extent Environment, Education, Health Care, Women's Rights are an issue, Walker loses.
Jobs, and Scott Walker loses.
Walker and the Repulsives are cornered.
Walker also refused to say whether his own administration is correct in stating $7.25 is a living wage.
If Walker were comfortable, his campaign would be non-stop positive impressions, not even acknowledging he had an opponent.
But Wisconsin leads the nation in negative TV spots in campaigns for governor in the nation. (Gilbert, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)
Watch for desperate moves from Walker surrogates, the kitchen sink, anything.
Jonathan Alter reported and wrote in his seminal book, The Center Holds, Obama and His Enemies(Simon and Schuster,
2013), the Obama campaign utilizing its high-tech veritable wizards
compiled voter support scores on the 180 million American voters
(p. 107), and successfully demolished Mitt Willard Romney.
Burke has the same capacity and watching the debate closely, a quiet confidence from Mary Burke is taking hold, and a desperation from Scott Walker is becoming equally apparent.
