Three years ago, Scott Walker sent out the infamous Black Friday fundraising email with some really, really bad Christmas gift giving advice:
Instead of venturing into the cold this Black Friday, stay in and give your children a gift that will keep on giving.
This year, we are celebrating the Holiday Season with a Black Friday special that is better than any deal found in stores. Donate $5, $10 or $25 to help Governor Walker get reelected and save your children from a future of double-digit tax increases and billion dollar budget deficits.
Instead of electronics or toys that will undoubtedly be outdated, broken, or lost by the next Holiday Season, help give your children the gift of a Wisconsin that we can all be proud of. Governor Walker is helping Wisconsin move forward to a future where your children and grandchildren can experience...
Apparently, Walker has a short memory or is hoping that we do, because he's back at it again.
Earlier this week, Walker sent out this tweet:
Geez, you'd think that the guy would still want to stay away from Christmas already.
But then he adds so much irony to that tweet that one could overdose on it.
Besides Christmas, he's the last person in the world I would look to for budgeting advice:
- Walker's failed presidential campaign still owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to creditors.
- He's racked up a huge personal debt, mostly on a Sears charge card (Hello, can I pay my bill with Koh's Cash? Hello? Hello?). His personal debt is so big, he had to sell his house.
- It was also just reported a few days ago that Wisconsin is facing a $700,000 deficit, which does not include the $1 billion shortfall in the transportation budget alone.
Or maybe, just maybe, Walker was finally facing reality and that he led Wisconsin to have the biggest decrease in the middle class and was warning people that their kids were going to be disappointed when they find nothing under the tree this year.
