Scott Walker's Wisconsin has fallen to dead last in job creation but that's okay! It's not his policies that made job creation there take a nose dive...

Scott Walker blames Syrian unrest for lack of jobs in Wisconsin

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Scott Walker
stated Monday:

"The President, working with other leaders on a global basis, can try and put some pressure on to get things under control in the Middle East and provide stability there, because that will help our economy and if they don't it has an impact. We can do all the good possible, we can get the state back on the right track, but if there's instability around the world it will inevitably have an impact."

Remember Scott Walker promised during his campaign that he would create 250,000 new jobs in Wisconsin by the end of his term. He is nowhere close to that number having only seen 80,000 or so jobs created so far, leaving him well short his goal. He knows he will never create those 250,000 jobs—he is clearly grasping at straws at this point.
