Commander Vos


By Jeff Simpson

"Having low expectations makes everything so much easier."Unknown

Assembly Speaker, popcorn king and ladies man Robin Vos was out with his version of the upcoming GOP agenda.   However, I stopped reading early on when he admitted to a complete lack of competence:

From Day One in the Assembly, Republicans made private-sector job creation our top priority.
 The Nation's most recent employment report, which examines job creation in all 50 states, raises a familiar question with renewed urgency: Why is Wisconsin a chronic laggard? According to Wednesday's report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Wisconsin gained 23,963 private-sector jobs in the 12 months from June 2012 through June 2013, a 1.0% increase that ranks the state 37th among the 50 states in the pace of job creation during that period.
The state's ranking slid from a revised rank of 32nd three months earlier, which covered the 12 months through March 2012.
Wisconsin continued to trail the national rate of job creation, as it has since July 2011. The United States created private-sector jobs at a rate of 1.9% in the latest 12-month period, nearly double Wisconsin's 1.0% rate, the data show.

Robin vos is as good of a legislator, as Homer Simpson is at his job! 

The lobbyist said that Republicans have become much more creative with fundraising events than Democrats. In July, for instance, RACC held a paintball outing to raise funds for Rep. Travis Tranel, R-Cuba City, that pitted lawmakers against lobbyists.
“It was the first time I did paintball and it was absolutely fantastic,” recalled Tranel, who was reached by phone.
“As far as I remember (the legislators) won, of course,” he said. “(Assembly Speaker) Robin (Vos) is seriously competitive, as you know, and he was the commander.
 Since his fellow republicans in the assembly have to call him Commander, I wonder what his mistress/lobbyist girlfriend calls him?

Any suggestions?

PS: do not forget that the floor is 250,000 jobs.
