Report: 10,000 construction jobs lost in Wisconsin
I have a hunch that if it were a democratic governor and a republican president, libs would be blaming the president for the supposed loss of jobs here in Wisconsin. In this case, it's the governor's fault because he's a republican. No other reason. As long as the two are from different parties, it can always be spun as the other guy's fault.

If Romney gives up on Wisconsin, he's crazy. This state is extremely moderate (NOT liberal) and went totally red in '10 even after all that '08 lapse of judgement. The loud and active left found some stuff they thought worthy of some recalls because they couldn't handle it, and now the state senate is a slight dem majority for the time being. Obama's honeymoon is over.

Building the high speed rail would have provided many construction jobs in WI. Nope, Walker only has himself to blame.

Walker had staked his political career on opposition to the Midwest High Speed Rail Initiative, even launching a campaign website NoTrain.com - Stop The Train towards his high-minded goal. In spite the $810 million that the federal government had offered the state, Walker had originally refused the project because he said it was a a waste of taxpayer money.

It might be best for lefties to learn beyond the title of articles, but they see what they want to see and let fly.
But they can't once they get something in their thick heads, they are convinced, as Obama does, he convinces himself a lot about things, that are not really happening!

Permanent construction jobs? Using taxpayer money that does not exist because we're ear-deep in debt?
I'm not 100% against rail (infrastructure is cool), but with 16 trillion dollars of debt and no good way to reign that in, much less pay for it, rejecting the rail might have been an attempt to tell Obama that he's out of control with his spending. Was Bush good with spending issues? No. Is Obama even worse? Yes.
