    Yet employment is up and unemployment down, why would anyone kick out a governor with those results? You want to give a President with the opposite results four more years.

    But there is where your theory about the executive controlling the economy breaks down, for the same time period, US unemployment levels improved at virtually the same rate as WI: -0.7%, -0.8%.

    Chief Executive Magazine tells a different story. If it weren't for states like TX, Wisconsin, and others with Republican Governors the national rate wouldn't be where it is today.

    WI lost more jobs in the last twelve months than any other state. Did you read the article. No excuses they lost more jobs than any other state. You offer a handful of excuses when the proof is in the print. How much in denial can you people get?

    Same advice, you need to contact the Bureau of Labor Statistics and tell them they got the numbers wrong. Interesting how BLS data is only credible when you agree with the data.

    GOOD JOB GOV Hate labor Walker....your doing a great job for Wisconsins Rich and Corporations WHO YOU GAVE TAX CUTS with the money you took off of PUBLIC WORKERS.....I just love the teaparty...


    PolitiFact N.J.: With Christie to campaign for Walker, a state senator claimed Wisconsin led nation in job losses | NJ.com
    Now here is something I don't understand....So many people, particularly liberals, let Obama slide his first year in office because everything was "Bush's fault". And yet this same logic does not apply to Walker?

    Where's my hip waders?

    Lost more jobs than any other state. Excuses don't bring those jobs back.

Liberals always want to be procise when it comes to Republican results but ignore the Obama lies and distortions. Wonder why?
    National average is 8.1% so 6.8% is lower than the average. Also if you take a look here the 6.8% is pretty average in Wisconsin since this recession started. In fact if you look back to 2010 there were an aweful lot of 7-8 percents in there compared to Walkers average of 6 percents.

    BLS.gov

    Over all I think Walker has done just fine. The story in the OP is hyperbole imo.
