When it comes to Scott Walker, you've got to follow the money, and follow it all the way. Nine-figure sums from largely anonymous, out-of-state donors elected him and saved him from recall. And he's blowing similar sums to puff up the Republican Party's meme that he's been a godsend for Wisconsin's economy. Well, a godsend for GOP finances and the fat cats, at any rate. And whenever Walker breathlessly touts his actions in saving your tax dollars, it's imperative you take him not just at his word.

The newest example: Walker's announcement that he'll call a special session of the legislature to approve property tax rebates (of up to eleven bucks this year, for a typical homeowner. Wow! ELEVEN BUCKS!) based on mere projections that the state might gain more revenue than expected (which, apparently, has nothing to do with the national economic recovery that Walker has had absolutely nothing to do with influencing).

uppitywis blog??????? There's a great factual source. Gotta love the govt workers like you who now are being held accountable for actually doing some work. Keep whining. Walker is more popular today than he has ever been.

The truth is that Scott Walker approval rating is less than Obama's.

Do you ever tell the truth? You lied again.

"The headline numbers from Tuesday's release showed 48% of those polled in July approved of Walker's job performance."

"Obama is doing better in Wisconsin than he is nationally. A McClatchy-Marist poll released this week showed only 41% approved of Obama's job performance."

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove (see trends).

You used a July poll for Walker. Like all Republicans, Walker's approval has fallen since then.

I used the most recent WI Journal Poll. I also provided a link to my source.

Like all Democrats. You spout off empty claims and never provide any proof. But that is what liars do, isn't it?

Your poll is from JULY 23rd. A lot has happened in almost 3 months. His poll is from yesterday.

You may have heard that the tea party caused a little thing called the government shutdown, and that their ratings dropped just a tad this month.

Sounds like there is a few sore right wing Vikings fans that haven't seen the latest tea party poll numbers.

You'll be even unhappier after tonight's game.

Dayton vs Walker

Dayton equals massive tax increases on all Minnesotans. Billionaire Zygi Wilk gets a billion dollar stadium without spending any of his own money.

Walker equals $100 million property tax cut.

Minnesota sucks.

At least our governor isn't the target of multiple corruption probes like Walker.
