Remember Those BLS Jobs Numbers?
So the BLS private-sector job growth for June 2011 to June 2012 came out this week showing Wisconsin ranking 42 out of 50.
Even by the most generous of grading systems - that's a solid "F."
Adding to what has become a "pile-on" this week, the Wausau Daily Herald came out with an editorial saying Walker's mishandling of the Wisconsin Economic Development Agency in addition to his miserable jobs performance may just put Scooter out of a job next year.
It's no wonder Walker has already started to announce his reelection campaign staff - the spin can't begin early enough. Walker supporters - who are hanging on by their fingertips these days - claim that in spite of the poor performance, Walker reversed the tide of Jim Doyle's disastrous tenure.
Nice try - if it were true. The reality is Doyle had already begun a climb out of negative job numbers - and Walker squandered them.
They won't be able to blame Jim Doyle forever.
