Walker, where are those jobs you promised?

Please limit discussion in this area to local and state politics.

171 jobs per day x 365 days = 62413 jobs were supposed to be in existence by now. Walker screwed the pooch when he turned down the funds for expansion and re-introduction of passenger rail through Madison, as that would've created numerous jobs both directly and indirectly. Where are the jobs, Mr. Governor ?

Again he made that promise over a four year term. You can't hold the job numbers against him yet.

Earthling, you forgot to blame Clinton, Obama, the Democrats, the Looney Left, the Lamestream Media, and The National Society of Scapegoats.

Both sides are going to blame the other. At least Obama has had a full three years to do nothing.

Pretty sure Obama had two years with the numbers in his favor and didn't much more at that time than he is now. I'm sure you wouldn't be blaming congress for the failures of the Bush administration though would you? *coughing* hypocrit

I'm pretty sure you are wrong, since the GOPers used the supermajority rule to prevent final votes. (Ever hear of the term filibuster?)

Jobs report notes high number of Wisconsin layoffs

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Thursday released a report showing Wisconsin with the second-highest number of unemployment claims from mass layoff events in the nation last month.

A "mass layoff" is any event affecting at least 50 workers, according to the BLS.

Its mass layoff report for November estimated Wisconsin with 90 such events in the month, impacting 9,359 individuals.

OK, I'm just trying to keep up here. Is the talking point from the right now that Obama has done nothing? I seem to remember them being slightly up-in-arms over the Affordable Care Act. Is it now a rightwing talking point that this was no big deal? If so, why do they still seem so upset about it?

He's both an unqualified do nothing idiot in way over his head and a sly America destroying sleeper cell who's thrusting his throbbing agenda down the throats of "real" Americans. It makes sense as long as you don't think about it.

Of course we're disregarding the fact that job numbers are going up across the country at the same time they are going down in Wisconsin...or else that is also Obama's fault & he is just making sure jobs are cut in Wisconsin to try to make Walker look less awesome
