Walker must own his decisions rather than blame Jim Doyle

Published Jan. 26, 2015

I want the governor to do what is best for the Wisconsin economy, and I think this casino was best for the Wisconsin economy (including the impoverished Menominee).

This could put him periodically at odds with the Republican majorities in the Legislature in 2015. Or it could just temper them. But I think the Republican instinct will be to eliminate old foes, targeting pots of liberal power where they still exist.
