Scott Walker will DESTROY unemployment! (And unicorns really DO exist!)

Yes, it's old news, but it's still hilarious in my book. Scott Walker, Republican candidate for Governor, claims he can bring over 250,000 new jobs to Wisconsin by 2015 if elected governor.

That'd be quite the accomplishment -- considering that, if Walker were successful, he'd make the unemployment rate .03 percent in the state!

Most economists will tell you that you can expect 4-5 percent unemployment during periods of economic normalcy. So if Walker can bring unemployment to the point where less than half a percent of Wisconsin citizens have a job, that'd be miraculous. Forget the governorship -- this man needs to be president! OF THE WORLD!

The problem is, Walker can't even create a job on his own in Milwaukee County. Sure, he points to the jobs created at General Mitchell as evidence of his ability to grow jobs out of nowhere. But those jobs likely came from current Gov. Jim Doyle, who offered state tax incentives to Republic Airways and other businesses stay in the state, creating over 800 jobs in the process.

Considering Walker's tall-tales regarding his ability to completely eradicate unemployment in the state, I'm willing to go out on a limb here and say he's not the one responsible for the jobs at the airport either.


  1. My friend, I say this because I care, but you really have to keep up with the news.

    He not only cannot create jobs, Walker is actually making the unemployment situation worse.

    Oh, and stay tuned. Another issue about his grandiose claims coming up in a little while.

  2. Ha, yes, I am a bit late on this one...have you seen my post on being away for awhile? But I felt I needed to keep the subject alive, at least for those three readers that come on here. At the very least, it's documented one more place on the internet how incompetent Scott Walker really is.

  3. I have a unicorn farm in my basement. It's magical!
