Fortunately, we know better than to believe one word that comes out Walker's mouth.
The actual numbers reported by a source that does not have presidential aspirations riding on successfully bullshitting the people shows us that since Walker has taken office, he's cost the state 15,900 jobs. And when compared to neighboring states or to the nation as a whole, Walker's epic failure is even clearer:

One is that despite his grossly exaggerated claims of job growth, the state's unemployment rate jumped from 6.7% up to 7%.
The other thing that Walker failed to mention, and will continue to tail to mention, is that the jobs he is "creating" are part-time, low wage jobs. Is it any wonder that the state's average income is dropping like a rock?
The only thing he'll have to run on his cutting taxes and lowering the state deficit. That is until someone mentions that he hasn't cut taxes and he is borrowing money like mad to cover up his ballooning deficit.
