Can you say pap?

Fresh from offering not one idea to balance the state budget, Congressman Mark Green has moved on to promise more pie in the sky. the JS reports:
Green promises crackdown on city crime

Flanked by police officers and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in Sherman Park, Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Green said today that he will lead an all-out effort to end the "culture of crime in Milwaukee."

In a statement issued by his campaign, Green said Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle had "turned a blind eye" to the crime problem in Milwaukee and promised a stronger effort to show that "this park, this neighborhood, these streets and every park and neighborhood do not belong to the thugs and gangsters."

A statement released by Green's campaign, however, did not provide any details on how Green would tackle crime in the city, nor did it provide a measuring stick for success, such as a particular reduction in the murder rate or crime rate.
Rudy, I might believe. Green, uh uh.

Great. If Green gets elected Milwaukee can be the new Baghdad.

Let me guess, after a year in office and he's done jack for Milwaukee, he'll state "Stay the Course"

Maybe Green can create a Victory in Milwaukee Caucus and declare mission accomplished in the war on crime.

I never thought the day would come, but has anyone else noticed a hint of incredulity in some of the recent JS coverage of Green? I am not saying that it's anything seriously critical, but this story ("did not provide any details") and the one of the gas tax cut both had some surprisingly biting comments.

I hope the media turns on Green. He is constantly making promises that are vague or conflicting. Every single promise (except his bogus 70 cent solution to education) costs more money and then he promises to reduce the theoretical deficit. The editorial pages should say No NO NO to Green as Governor. Even if they have problems with Doyle, he has proven to be creative in offering solutions that are good for Wisconsin.

Typical repub running for office: make promise after promise, all costing mucho bucks, yet claim they're going to "cut taxes" at the same time. Are we really that gullible? ( do not answer that.)

Use this for the Money quote.

"When the people of Milwaukee stand up we will stand down."
