Tough Love

"Tommy Thompson used the bully pulpit to tell us how great Wisconsin was. Mayor Tom Barrett calls cheerleading for Milwaukee a key part of his job. Scott Walker’s style is to blacken the reputation of the county he runs."

This is from an op-ed by Bruce Murphy appearing in this week's Milwaukee Magazine. The whole piece is worth the read, if you haven't done so already.

I think there's some real truth to the quote above -- although it's only fair to say Walker's disdain is for the county government, not the residents.

Yet, unless we're willing to consider disbanding the county government altogether -- something I don't think the majority of residents want, nor would it be in their best interest -- simply attacking it isn't doing the residents any favors.
