This is Scott Walker running for Governor in 2010.
This is also Scott Walker running for Governor in 2012:
Walker talked about the jobs promise during the 2010 campaign, after he won election and even during the 2012 recall.
"I want my Cabinet secretaries to have branded across their heads, '250,000 jobs,'" Walker said at a December 2010 meeting of the Dairy Business Association. "I want them to know their job is on the line because my job is on the line to create 250,000 jobs in the private sector."
This is the actual result of Scott Walker's jobs promise - a very generous 102,813. For those of you scoring at home, that leaves Mr. Walker 147,187 jobs short of his major campaign promise/pledge.
For those of you also scoring at home, the amount of Cabinet Secretaries who have been fired because they have failed at creating jobs - 0.
Now Scott Walker is up for re election again and his jobs pledge is - nonexistent.
Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday he won't make another job creation promise like he did four years ago, a pledge he's all but certain not to fulfill by the end of his term in December.
Walker said his economic development plan to be unveiled in coming weeks will be a detailed proposal about how to grow quality jobs, but it won't include a specific promise of how many jobs would be created.
