    'Lost the opportunity to do a whole lot better' is better.

    I know Jake has been all over the job stats, I just didn't want any casual readers to read his 'still' to imply that 42nd place was anything other than novel territory for Wisconsin (I have found people who, when confronted with this fact, seem to think that we were 50th under Doyle).

    The DWD released revised CES data on Thursday, which brought it into line with 2011 QCEW (BLS release of the same revised data for all states will be on Monday).  Politifact will show something close to 56,000 private sector jobs gained since December 2010 when it updates with the January CES data.

    That's rather less than half the pace required to keep his 250k promise, and about 40,000 off the national pace.

    2012 job growth (CES: +14,200 for the whole year and the first nine months anticipated QCEW very closely) was certainly slower than 2011 (QCEW: +29,800, good for 38th place, revised CES: +31,800).

    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.
