What Scott Walker does next

Believe me, what Walker says means nothing. He will say anything to anyone to get elected.
You guys are afraid of Scott Walker because Hillary is so rich she's not believable that she knows the little guy's problems. At least, that's what you told us when Romney was running. All we have to do is pull out those videotapes of the Dems deriding Romney's wealth and how he must be so out of touch. And the other old white lady you have waiting in the wings is rich, too.

You forgot to read the real Wisconsinites comments about a speculative, partisan article you linked from six months ago, (November 24, 2014). Seems folks see the 'opinion' piece for the shallowness that characterizes Walkerphobia. Good going.

The structural deficit is similar to that of a few years ago. Back then Wisconsin was BROKE!(remember the idiotic rhetoric propagated by every loudmouth right-wing nut-job?).

As a fellow veteran, I respect Mr. Newton's military service. The JS gave him a platform and I am disappointed that he failed to use it around Veteran's Day to bring awareness to key veteran's issues and concerns.

I guess political partisanship is more important to him.

Mr. Newton is a paid political partisan. He is not a "community voice".

Uh, the '2.2BN' number is a pie-in-the-sky 'wish-list' from all state agencies.

Most of it is new spending.

We can thus solve this faux 'deficit' by saying 'Sorry, no spending increase for any of you'...

From the Purple Wisconsin charter:

"The Journal Sentinel hosts these blogs as a way to encourage thoughtful debate about the important issues facing Wisconsin and the Milwaukee region."

Saul's not debating, he's polemicing. There are nothing but foregone conclusions in Saul's wormy little world; debate is neither necessary nor important.

Saul must be quite the treasure for Scot Ross.

Most egregious, reports indicate Walker is polling public opinion to craft his response to Wisconsinís budget crisis."

If you think that's "egregious" -- or even noteworthy, for that matter -- you don't know doodlysquat about politics. (My apologies to Granny Hawkins.)

True enough.

Probably the biggest backfire in Wisconsin political history.

Whether or not Walker runs, the Wisconsin budget is not currently in crisis. The proposed budget deficit will not come to pass, as they never do because of the statutory requirements in Wisconsin. Additionally, there will absolutely need to be hard choices made - and whether Walker organizes the legislature to slash spending or raise revenues beyond the already expected increases, it's the legislature that will have the say on the budget. You should really get some perspective and work within the system - it's a better place for input than banging on the windows having a tantrum.

Yes wisconsin is in a crisis walkers deficit is nearly what it was in 2010. This one proves walkers plan isn't working, with all his cuts we are still facing a huge deficit. In 2010 the the whole country was in an economic slump. That projected deficit was to be expected. The shocking thing is the country is now in a recovery phase. And wisconsin is facing such huge deficit again. Wis is in serious trouble.

Scott Walker would be a decent candidate, but Hillary would stomp him. As a Democrat I'm more interested in seeing the Senate flip back Democratic in 2016 and having the GOP majority shrink in the House. Hillary will win, so I'm interested in the legislature balances after 2016.

You might want to try and reign in your party's extremism and corruption. Unless that happens, the Democrat Party will be in the political wilderness for the foreseeable future.

As a non-partisan voter, my reaction to this is "as if".

Funny thing I hear almost no one but a handful of Cons talking about Walker. Has he even declared? Think I will wait until he declares then goes before the American People and tells us how his ideas are best for America and how he will get those ideas implemented, until then I do not see him making much of a splash with the Voters.

I'm glad conservatives are stupid enough to want to nominate Cruz or Walker but the fact that they're stupid means their little pea brains are successfully influenced by the TV ads the big money right wing donors will be putting in to get someone more electable like Rubio the nod.

I do not think Walker would be the very best candidate for the GOP if it hopes to win the White House in '16.

Bush and Rubio are more electable in my opinion.

Walker?
There's only room for one Teabag candidate. Cruz will eat Walker alive in the first debate, if Walker even gets that far. And that will be the end of that.

Quit deluding yourself, for God's sake.
Walker not only won once, but 3 times the elections as governor of Wisconsin. In case you didn't know... Wisconsin is supposed to be a democratic stronghold. How did he do it?
