During an appearance on “UpFront with Mike Gousha” over the weekend, Republican Gov. Scott Walker started to tamp down expectations regarding his job creation efforts in Wisconsin, expectations that were sky-high after he promised during his gubernatorial campaign in 2010 that he’d create 250,000 job during his term in office.
Gousha: Do you have to revise your expectations for what you can do in Wisconsin? You promised 250,000 new jobs, 10,000 new businesses, do you have to look at those numbers and say maybe that’s just not realistic?
Walker: Well, there are certainly some who may look at the numbers and suggest that may be the case. My goal is to still get there — my goal is to actually exceed that amount. We’re still going to keep pushing.
Gousha: Is it going to be tough to reach that?
Walker: Oh, I think without a doubt.
I think without a doubt that Scott Walker will fail to create 250,000 jobs in Wisconsin during his time in office, whether he’s in office for a year or a full term.
