I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
When Jim Doyle ran for governor in 2002, he vowed to eliminate 10,000 state jobs. Doyle was posing as a fiscal conservative not beholden to the public employee unions. Since then, about 3,000 state jobs have been eliminated. Last week, Doyle said he hopes the state’s "$5.4 billion" budget deficit won’t force him to eliminate 3,500 jobs.
Is Doyle bipolar?
Let’s review this again and say it slightly different!
In 2002, he was saying that cutting 10,000 jobs would be a good thing.
In 2008, he’s saying eliminating 3,500 jobs would be tragic. The manic Doyle crows about his desire to eliminate state jobs with a meat cleaver. The depressive Doyle is distraught that he might have to eliminate any state jobs.
Either Doyle needs a good shrink or his original promise was just one of those things Democrats say to get elected. As for the electorate, we love politicians who promise to be fiscally frugal but don’t like to actually see any of this fiscal frugality.
