Jim Doyle to the rescue, Jim Doyle to the rescue...

Go, Jim Doyle! Go, Jim Doyle!

Sincere apologies to Black Oak Arkansas, one of the few bands not playing Summerfest, but it was too good to pass up.

What delicious irony that Gov. Jim Doyle has had to come to the rescue of Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker, who a short time ago was running for governor as the guy who could whip the state budget into shape.

Doyle named a high-powered task force today to study the county's finances and propose solutions.

Walker, in his usual mode of operation, didn't even wait for the group to meet before he began offering his ideas, which mostly involve the state picking up the tab.

Doyle pointed out, in his announcement of the task force, that the state already sends Milwaukee County almost a half a billion dollars a year.

Ah, yes. High powered task force of big wigs. Months of inquiry. PowerPoint presentations. Maybe even a public hearing...

End result?

Until the pensions situation is resolved and most importantly until the state pays for services that it mandates counties provide, Milwaukee County will always be in financial straits.

What has Jim Doyle done for mandate relief?

Since when is forming a committee coming to the rescue?

Maybe when the task force is done they can give a copy to Jim McGuigan so he can finally see the damage is vote for the pensions caused.

He continues to be in denial about the entire fiasco.

The rest of us already know what Doyle's politically motivated task force will waste time and money finding out: In 2011, $0.75 of every county tax dollar (frozen levy or not) will go to pay for pension benefits and current employee salaries.

Those who wish to whine about pools have their heads up their asses.

Clever move by Doyle. Now Walker has to wait for Daddy to fix evertthing.

Daddy Doyle won't be in any position to fix anything when he returns to the private sector.
