He had promised us that he would create at least 250,000 jobs by the end of his first term. Fifteen months
from the next election, he has created about one eighth of them. And most of them were state fluff positions that he doled out to cronies and lobbyists' sons.
But now Walker is trying to back off of his promise.
The one thing Walker had in plenty was a list of excuses for his epic failure. Some of his excuses include, but are not limited to:
- The weather
- Former Governor Jim Doyle
- President Barack Obama
And now he is adding one more to his list of excuses - Syria:
"The President, working with other leaders on a global basis, can try and put some pressure on to get things under control in the Middle East and provide stability there, because that will help our economy and if they don't it has an impact," Gov. Walker said. "We can do all the good possible, we can get the state back on the right track, but if there's instability around the world it will inevitably have an impact."
Coming soon will be blaming the man on the moon and purple unicorns.
