  •  Is he using his cooked numbers again? (5+ / 0-)

     I bet that "100,000" quote is based on the end of June 2012 vs. January 2011. What they don't mention is that those are UNADJUSTED jobs, and we always have a lot more jobs in Summer than Winter because of weather and tourism season.

       I don't even have to look at the particular reports to tell you that. But I bet our media doesn't have the guts to call him on it and tell you the truth. The year-over-year numbers are the only ones to look at with the QCEW, because that kicks out the seasonal factors. Those are at around 20,000-30,000, and those are the BEST numbers Wisconsin gets for jobs. The BLS actually has us losing jobs over the same time.

       It's a typical Walker lie by omission, and it's a damning indictment of our media that he's still trying to get over (with some success) after 2 years in Madison and 8 more in Milwaukee.

      Unadjusted job growth exceeds 100,000 since Walker entered office.

      Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.
