How's this for nuance? First let me say I disagree with Walker promising 250,000 jobs. I disagree with him predicting any number of jobs created in his first term. Why? because there are so many factors beyond his control involved in the number of jobs created. I was had a manager in a previous radio job who wanted a goal on ratings for the station I was overseeing. I wouldn't do it. Survey research is too unpredictable. I could do everything right to make the station a winner, but the methodology of the firm that measured listening was beyond my control.
That said, this piece is an unhinged liberal moment if I've ever seen one...and I have. Walker's term isn't done yet. His policies have done nothing to stunt the state's economic growth. This is either irrational lashing out, or a pre-emptive strike. Walker's term isn't over, so it's impossible for him to have failed yet. Of course the real cap on job creation has been the discord the left has created in the state. There's the real lie in this piece.
