Weasel Waffles

Walker does more flips than an Olympic gymnast team.

On December 5th
, Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker was all for federal aid, even with a local match required, as evidenced by his application for federal dollars for his rapid transit buses.

On January 6th, he was vehemently opposed to any federal stimulus dollars. Why? Because he felt that one shouldn't put the money in the hands of government and because there would be a local match required.

Today, he is again for receiving federal monies, especially for the transit system he allowed to be driven into the ground. The real kicker is this (emphasis mine):
Walker said the potential for southeastern Wisconsin to get up to $57 million in federal stimulus aid for new buses or other transit projects was welcome news.
Other transit projects? Does this mean is now OK with light rail after all these years of refusing to use the $91.5 million dollars because Mayor Tom Barrett wanted to use some for that very purpose?

So, for light rail, he's now for it after he was against it? And for federal aid, he was for it before he was against it before he was for it again?

A while ago, Dan Cody was trying to come up with a slogan for Walker's gubernatorial campaign. May I now humbly suggest Walker's World of Weasel Waffles?

  1. Unfortunately no I can't seem to see Walker ever flipping on his anti-rail position.
