    Wisconsin and Minnesota share a common cultural heritage that until recently included a healthy Midwestern strain of progressive politics. Elected in 2010, Governor Scott Walker upended a hundred years of liberal populism, charting a conservative path for Wisconsin that made him a darling of the Republican Right, but left his state with a serious budget shortfall and disappointing job growth.

    Meanwhile, across the border in neighboring Minnesota, Governor Mark Dayton has relentlessly pursued liberal policies, embodying the tax-and-spend Democrat that Republicans love to caricature. The result, surprising to many, is that the Minnesota economy is going gangbusters while Wisconsin’s job growth has fallen to 44th among the 50 states.

    What a surprise!

    A far left columnist doesn't like Scott Walker and writes a biased column to make him look bad.

    The sun must have come up this morning.

    I have lived in Wisconsin since 1998. Things are much better since Walker took office. Considerable, when one considers the mess that our last Governor, Jim Doyle (Democrat), left the state in at the end of his last term.

    CTB - you do realize that the same clock for Minnesota shows Minnesota has a higher spending rate and more debt per citizen than Wisconsin, right?

    Wisconsin was the birthplace of the Republican Party so there must have been an interest in abolition there before the rise of progressive thinking there.

    She's a joke. Where to begin here - first of all, even her numbers are old. The "44th in private jobs created" is over two years old:

    as is that meme:

    As for the budget surpluses/deficits, it takes time for tax cuts to do their magic, whereas tax increases are instantaneous. Really, if Eleanor feels this way, she should encourage Dayton to run for the Democratic Party nomination on his record and see how that goes.

    Minnesota is a white socialist paradise. It would be neat if all the white socialists moved to Minnesota, wouldn't it?

    As for Gov. Dayton's dentures, he is rich enough to buy a new pair everyday.

    All this personal stuff about Minnesota's Governor. SMH. Has anybody taken a look at Scott Walker's picture while you're making fun of the neighboring governor's? :laugh:

    Whoever posted that pic needs a quick kick in the behind. Is that even his head and hair? That's an AWFUL picture that looks purposely distorted. It makes him look like the progeny of a brother and sister.

    His CM needs to make sure that photo is NEVER used for anything again.
