To say Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker is a hypocrite would be an understatement.
At a press conference alongside big-bucks campaign donor Fred Luber on Wednesday, Walker attacked Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett for helping to bring new jobs to Milwaukee, and the Republican Party of Wisconsin, eager to carry water for Walker, issued a press release attacking Governor Jim Doyle – while linking Barrett to Doyle – for awarding a no-bid contract to build trains to Talgo, the Spanish company that Walker and Luber say was given a sweetheart deal by Barrett to build high speed trains in Milwaukee. However, what the Wisconsin GOP conveniently ignored is the fact that as a member of the State Assembly, Scott Walker voted for the no-bid train purchasing process that Walker and the Wisconsin GOP are now attempting to use against Democrats. What’s more, the governor who signed that provision into law was none other than Tommy Thompson, who was a Republican the last time I checked.
I’m in agreement with Xoff, who thinks Walker’s attacks are more than a little over the top
