Our pass-the-buck Governor has previously blamed Obamacare, Syrian fighting, Jim Doyle (man, that's so 2010), numbers, Act 10 protests, the 2012 recall election, Congressional fiscal cliff antics and government itself for his failed signature campaign promise to create 250,000 new private-sector jobs in one term, but on Mike Gousha's Sunday TV show last weekend, Walker came up with the most absurd yet: "the current election cycle." (And, for good measure, the recall election, again. So 2012.)
This is like your basketball team's seasoned point guard promising to score 25 points a game, only netting ten per contest after nearly four years, and blaming his air balls on crowd noise.
Still available as excuses to Walker: Falling Beanie Baby prices. That thing that girl said in the cafeteria last year. Crocs.
I think he forgot to mention "corporate uncertainty about the Governor's legal problems".
