Why is the national media buying Gov. Scott Walker’s “everyman” routine?

This is an excellent read… Also this weekend came the news that Walker’s administration admitted it had overbilled two Wisconsin family planning clinics by 93 percent – or at least $3.2 million. The move was so blatantly ideological that the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said the change “raised more questions than it answered.”

Walker’s New Hampshire “Everyman” […]

Happy Earth Day, courtesy of Gov. Scott Walker! Fifty-seven employees of the state Department of Natural Resources began receiving formal notices this week that they might face layoff as part of Gov. Scott Walker’s budget for the next two fiscal years…

David Koch’s pick for Republican presidential nomination? Why, Scott Walker of course!

This should surprise absolutely no one… Charles G. and David H. Koch, the influential and big-spending conservative donors, appear to have a favorite in the race for the Republican presidential nomination: Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

On Monday, at a fund-raising event in Manhattan for the New York State Republican Party, David Koch told donors […]

Wisconsin State Senate passes bill eliminating waiting period for handgun purchases

I’m having a hard time understanding why eliminating the 48-hour waiting period for handgun purchases in Wisconsin is necessary, except to help further burnish Gov. Scott Walker’s conservative credentials for the extremist conservatives who comprise the base of the Republican Party.

Walker Should Be Going to California Instead of Europe

Apparently the governor is trying to strengthen his foreign policy credentials with another trip to Europe.

Where he should be is in drought ridden California. As that state continues to impose water use restrictions and experiments with sea water desalination, Wisconsin is still a safe water haven (well ignoring the DNRs lack of over […]

Anchor Bank offers buyouts to a fifth of its employees – didn’t it get the memo that WI is “Open for Business?”

Apparently Anchor Bank didn’t get Gov. Scott Walker’s memo that Wisconsin is “Open for Business.” The parent company of AnchorBank said Thursday that it is offering buyouts to about a fifth of its employees, closing six branches and selling another branch as part of an “operational efficiency” effort.

Madison-based Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin Inc., which struggled […]

Wisconsin Gazette: Scott Walker’s presidential campaign cherry picks WI economic data

Not that it should surprise anyone who’s been paying attention to how Gov. Scott Walker has governed Wisconsin, but a new report in the Wisconsin Gazette indicates Gov. Walker’s presidential campaign is cherry picking economic data from Wisconsin that makes Gov. Walker’s efforts to create jobs and move Wisconsin’s economy forward look better than they’ve […]

Chris Christie takes shots at Gov. Scott Walker for flip-flopping to pander to voters

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve outlined some of the flip-flops Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has made during his career as a politician. At the time former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush had already started to take shots at Gov. Walker for his “evolving” positions on issues, and this report by Zeke Miller of Time […]

Scott Walker’s budget to cut funding to fight water pollution by 16%

In yet another example of how awful Gov. Scott Walker’s latest biennial budget is for the State of Wisconsin, a new report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes his most recent budget cuts funding to fight water pollution by 16%. As worries grow about water pollution caused by runoff from streets, yards and farm fields, […]
