Walker continues to perform like a one-term governor. Wisconsin only has a couple of more years to suffer under his thumb.

I see that as of January 17, 2013, Walker is only 212,489 jobs short of his 250,000 goal by the end of his term in 2015. He only has to add about 9,000 jobs per month for the next 24 months, yeah, right!

Unemployment rates:
Minnesota: 5.5%
Wisconsin: 6.6%
Minneapolis: 5.2%
Milwaukee: 9.6%

Seems to me the liberal state is doing much better than the conservative utopia to the east.
