The Blue State Blues

Something we can see right here in Wisconsin.

...when it comes to the economic recovery, there has been a clear difference. It turns out that blue states have done worse economically than have red states under President Obama, according to an IBD analysis of various government economic data.
IBD compared average job growth, unemployment, changes in housing prices, per capita income and GDP growth, and gas prices for the 22 states that voted for John McCain in 2008 and the 28 states that voted for Obama .

On every indicator but one, blue states have done worse, on average, than red states.In addition, IBD looked at the economic performance of 11 states that Real Clear Politics lists as tossups for the 2012 presidential election. Many of these purple battleground states have fared far worse than the country as a whole during the past three years.

Lemmeeeseee, heah, Gomer.  Let's compare the City of Milwaukee's fortunes with the REST of Wisconsin since Walker was elected.

Or not, if you're Milk-Carton Tom.
