MADISON, Wis. — The day after a new statewide poll showed his approval ratings remain negative, Gov. Scott Walker convened a press conference to make what he touted was an important economic announcement.

The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross:

“Every time this guy fails to measure up, he tries to change the measuring stick.

“Scott Walker first told us the important thing to focus on was his campaign promise to create 250,000 new jobs. Then it was new manufacturing jobs. Then it was new businesses created. Then it was workforce participation. Then it was wages. Then it was the unemployment rate.

“He’s failed to create the jobs he’s promised, we’ve lost manufacturing jobs, he tried counting Girl Scout troops as new businesses created and our wages have lagged.

“The only thing that’s remained consistent is Scott Walker’s failed leadership and willingness to say or do anything to try to win an election.”
