Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker speaks at CPAC 2013.
Scott Walker made big job creation promises in 2010 when he was running for governor of Wisconsin. He hasn't come close to delivering on those promises, though, and that could be a problem for him as he runs for re-election. Walker promised to create 250,000 new jobs—supposedly, he was going to get there by busting unions and slashing regulations that protect workers, consumers, and the environment. But just a few months before the end of his term, it's clear it's not happening.

A little more than 100,000 jobs have been created in Wisconsin since January 2011. If you're checking, that's not anywhere near 250,000. But let's bend over backwards to be fair. A governor can't overcome the national economy all on his own. So how does Wisconsin stack up to the nation and its neighbors?

Yeah, like that.

The numbers bounce around a little month to month and depending on what measure you use. But what's stayed absolutely certain at all times is the giant chasm between what Scott Walker promised and what he delivered. Why should Wisconsin voters expect him to do any better next time around?

Help Wisconsin. Help oust Scott Walker. Please give $3 to Mary Burke's campaign.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
