Walker Comes Out Whiffing

On the eve of his recall, Scott Walker comes out swinging.  And ends up whiffing enough to cause a steady breeze.

Courtesy of TPM, we see that Walker came put an ad up during Monday Night Football:

The woman in the video is Karin Rajnicek of the Waukesha School Board. In the video, she says this (emphasis mine):
“We were worried when the state budget was gonna mean less money for our school district. And we have 25 schools,” says Rajnicek. “But Governor Walker — he gave us options that reduced our biggest costs, so that we could put more money back into our classrooms.”
Maybe she should have been more worried, because according to the Waukesha School District website, they must have lost five schools (again, emphasis mine):
The School District of Waukesha is located fifteen miles west of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the rolling hills of Waukesha County. With over 12,000 pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students served in our 20 schools, we are the seventh largest school district in the State of Wisconsin. Our schools include three comprehensive high schools, three middle schools, and 14 elementary schools. In addition, we serve students in six charter schools: Waukesha STEM Academy which has two campuses - Randall for Grades K-5 and Saratoga for Grades 6 and 7, Harvey Philip Alternative Charter School, Charter Recovery School, Waukesha Academy of Health Professions, Waukesha Engineering Preparatory Academy, and iQ Academy Wisconsin.
Or if you count the charter schools, she is short one. (Then again, does anyone really consider charter schools to be real schools?) Either way, it's rather scary that she is in charge of educating children when her math skills are as poor as Walker's. Maybe that's why she thinks that his slashing funding to her district was a good thing.

But that's just the beginning of the gaffes, folks.

Walker then comes on screen as says this:
“I’m committed to working together, to create more jobs, to improve our schools, and to protect our seniors. You know, Wisconsin’s best days are yet to come. It won’t happen overnight, but we are on our way.”
By creating jobs, he means, of course, chasing them out of the state by the hundreds.

And the DPI, in their annual survey, show that by improving schools, he means making sure the kids get less and less of education with less teachers, less schools and less programs.

And Walker feels that the best way to protect seniors is to cut their health care and deny them Family Care services.  And if the senior somehow manages to keep their health care coverage and/or get into Family Care, he'll make sure they don't make it to their medical appointments.

Can you believe he spent $300,000 of the Koch Brothers' money on this?  If this is the best he can do, this will be a cakewalk.

But Walker was correct on one thing.

Wisconsin's best days are yet to come.  And no, they will not happen overnight.  It will take 60 days just to get the recall signatures.

And yes, we are on our recall this corrupt, inept bully and reclaim Wisconsin!
