The Governor is at it again. This from his email, titled surprise, begging for more money. We know that Mr. Walker begging for money is no surprise, that is all he has done his whole life. The surprise came in the first sentence.
If there is one thing the American people learned about me during our presidential campaign, it is that I am thrifty.
I know Mr. Walker never finsihed college but let me help out a bit,. ’s 10-week presidential campaign raised $7.4 million but spent far more, according to the Wisconsin governor’s Federal Election Commission report released Thursday and people familiar with Mr. Walker’s finances.
Mr. Walker’s FEC report shows he spent $6.4 million between the mid-July launch and the end of September. But those figures don’t include $200,000 in Mr. Walker’s reported outstanding bills or debts the campaign pushed past Oct. 1 – a number that raises the Walker debt to more than $1 million more than his cash on hand, according to the people familiar with Mr. Walker’s campaign finances.
Simple Definition of thrifty: managing or using money in a careful or wise way
Apparently Mr. Walker has a completely definition of thrifty then the rest of us.
But wait there is more. The example he used when describing it ---well let's look at more :
I like to use coupons, Kohl’s Cash, and shop the sale racks. I am not into the latest fashion -- unless a Packers jacket counts. Most of all, I don’t like waste. This applies to state government and leftover campaign merchandise.
I think we can all come to a bipartisan agreement that he is not into the latest fashion, or any kind of fashion for that matter, however he likes to brag of buying a shirt at Kohls for $1.
No one has ever accused Mr. Walker of being an economic wiz, but when a company sells shirts for $1, what happens? They tend to close down!
However thrifty and a good shopper as Scott Walker considers himself to be, he thinks differently of you.
It was brought to my attention that we have a hodgepodge of campaign t-shirts left over. They are collecting dust somewhere and we lack the staff to organize them. I cannot stand to see them go to waste so we will give any supporter who contributes $45 or more to retire our campaign debt a t-shirt as a token of our thanks.
Overspending and overvakluing his own importance have also been trademarks of Mr. Walkers career, but he will buy a shirt for $1 and expects you to buy a made in ChinaT-shirt for $45.
But wait there is more. You do not even get to decide what size or color!
Due to our lack of resources, we are unable to honor size or color requests.
When Matt and Alex were little and fighting over what color cup or toy they wanted, Tonette and I used to tell them “you get what you get and you don’t get upset” and I guess that applies here too.
As is typical, Mr. Walker overspent his budget and is hoping that the taxpayers of WI will bail him out.
But wait there is more!!! Big Government Scott Walker will send you a piece of crap apparel item that you can not wear but he will tell you what to do with it!
Tonette tells me there are crafty things you can do with t-shirts like framing them or turning them into a pillow or bag. Whether you wear it, store it, frame it, or turn it into something else,...:Thank Goodness he has a wife who can help him figure out what to do with a t-shirt. However,if Tonette believes that anyone would want to frame and display a Scott Walker for President T-shirt, I think we need to really question what she did with $500,000 of our money to remodel the kitchen in the Governor's mansion.
If he was any kind of businessman, he would make his adoring fans pay extra for food stains!
