    So how come this thread got derailed off of Scott Walker and onto the never ending debate about various scientific theories?

    Because walker gave an an answer that the left wing spin thought would be distracting from real issues.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    When was the last time you heard the press ask a democrat such a question? Frankly...my response if I were him would be "My position is remarkably similar to the current president of the united states and the leading democrat candidate in 2016. Next question, asshole."

    Unbiased press anyone?

    Constantly playing 'gotcha' questions with Republicans, and yet not so with Democrats. Unbiased my ass.

    Its the republicans fault for letting them get away with it. "Lets see...my position on Gay Marriage is the same as the last 2 elected democrat presidents position on gay marriage and democrat voters didnt seem to mind it all that much. Next question, asshole".

    See how easy it would be to just stop the press from playing their childish games?

    Agreed. I'd wish the Republicans would learn this and actually do this. It would serve the idiot biased reporters posing such stupid questions right.

    Re: Scott Walker--Embarrassment to America

    To be honest it doesn't matter to me what Walker did or didn't say. I have plenty of reasons not to vote for him and so do many other people. Walker is not go to standing on the stage at the end of the GOP Big Loser event. He's not electable.

    The entire reason Walker was in the UK was because he hasn't done diddly when it comes to foreign policy. He certainly didn't serve in the military. He's work experience to date is a short stint with the Red Cross and then running for every political office he could find. That's fact. He has no business experience. He has no college degree. No military experience. As far as we know his trip to the UK may have been his first trip out of the US.

    Walker desperately needs national and international street creds. I get that he had to make a 5 day trip to the UK to "discuss foreign trade" so that he could get a twofer, foreign trade and foreign policy. "I've met with the heads of Europe, I've tackled the tough questions concerning foreign trade with our trading partners". Yeah, right.

    Here's my point Walker should have known and his handlers should have known that being on a panel in the UK that questions about his religion and about foreign policy would be asked. HAD TO KNOW. Apparently he didn't know and he was unprepared. The people at the Chatham House certainly did their homework. Walker didn't. He came off looking like the political opportunist that he is. Game changer for me? LOL! No, not at all.

    Walker came off as an evangelical who would deny his faith. In my opinion he should have stood up for what he believes. He should have said, "I believe in creation. It is part of my belief as an evangelical Christian. As you have asked, yes, I will declare my faith. But religion and government are two separate topics. I am here to discuss trade between Wisconsin and Britain." But Walker dropped the ball. He should have been prepared and he wasn't.

    Actually Walker gave an answer that leaves doubt that he is capable of rational thought. Rational people should have no doubts about humans being close relatives to apes. Our DNA proves it without a legitimate doubt.
