Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker speaks at CPAC 2013.
Does anyone have any straws for me to grasp?
Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Scott Walker stated Monday:
The President, working with other leaders on a global basis, can try and put some pressure on to get things under control in the Middle East and provide stability there, because that will help our economy and if they don't it has an impact. We can do all the good possible, we can get the state back on the right track, but if there's instability around the world it will inevitably have an impact."
Remember Scott Walker promised during his campaign that he would create 250,000 new jobs in Wisconsin by the end of his term. He is nowhere close to that number having only seen 80,000 or so jobs created so far, leaving him well short his goal. He knows he will never create those 250,000 jobs—he is clearly grasping at straws at this point.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
