Walker owes his office to the talk radio stations that put him there, and that cater to him daily.

They whip up a suburban consitutency in Franklin and River Hills and Wauwatosa and other areas that have a higher living standard than much of Milwaukee.

His anti-stimulus pronouncements are part of a calculated strategy that appeals to middle-and-upper income residents outside of the City of Milwaukee, and are also meant to appeal to Republican ideologues that control the state party and want Walker to run against Doyle in 2010.

That Walker has backpedaled a bit tells me he knows he has miscalculated; a strong stimulus plan that resolves some of the intense poverty in Milwaukee would reveal Walker as an insensitive pretender.
