Found an interesting website that keeps track of Scott Walker's job creation record.

PolitiFact Wisconsin | Walk-O-Meter: Create 250,000 new jobs

The argument seems to be that if you put a CEO in charge and cut the government regulation,etc., the economy will roar.

Not sure that is happening yet.

Walker made a modest promise of job creation and still has 21 months to hit his mark. There is not much anyone could do too make our economy roar since we are uncompetitive in a global economy.

Scott Walker took on a state filled with corrupt labor union trash and he's put them back in their place. They tried everything up to and including intimidation, lies and character assassination to get him out of office and they've failed just as bad as their recall attempt failed.

Scott Walker is doing the best anyone can be expected to do given the state of the economy in this country. A few angry liberal morons don't represent the state of WI.

He might if he wasn't causing most of the reasons why it's been slow. Scott Walker can't change federal policy or stop them from spending more money than they have.

Then be upfront about what your are all about...why the subterfuge? He should have run on busting the Unions if the economy was a side-thought.

Sneaky bastard didnt have the balls to tell the people like it is...

He told people exactly what he planned to do and after winning he did it, labor unions fought against him winning and they lost. They got mad at what he did so they ran away like little ******* and then tried to recall him, they lost even bigger that time.

Democrats have done nothing but fail in WI which is exactly why the state needed someone like Walker to come in and clean it up.

Oh, I get it, the slow recovery is Obama's fault,but not Walker's? A double standard. How surprising.

I think the Keynesian crackdown has been a major factor slowing the whole damn country. When you cut more public jobs than the private sector can produce, UE does not go down, and consumer demand does not rise.

Apparently, Reagan was a Keynesian:

A modest promise of job creation? Walker based his entire campaign on that promise!

In addition, Walker has had a negative effect on the infrastructure in WI which will not entice businesses or corporations to start up in WI.

The excuses are lining up, aren't they? The state of economy in this country was worse when Walker made this big promise the foundation of his campaign. Either Walker is an idiot or hoodwinked WI citizens to be elected.
