    They are simple, but the American right finds them impossibly complex as they have to consider their idiot voters back home, even if they happen to know the correct answer.

    Back to the OP and to my response to your statement in the previous post, Walker can't respond to foreign policy questions or he hasn't been able to thus far and he damn sure couldn't do it in London.
    Fair enough, a white flag if ever I saw one, then I shall, refuse to respond to you seeing as that wasn't from Walkers people thus you didn't bother to read thus you ADMIT you are merely a basher and truth, matters little to you. Ergo, you don't merit further responses. Good day Risky.
    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.

    So you believe Charles Darwin relates to foreign policy? It seems the Liberals have decided what the major issue in the next presidential election will be.

    For me it comes down to the candidate that I find best represents what I'd like to see for America. Neither ruling party has warranted my support for quite sometime. It is why I am an Independent. For the most part I don't see a hell of a lot of difference between either party in the White House. Campaign issues are quickly tossed aside once the election is won.

He apparently needs a binky (campaign staff to tell him what to say since he is afraid to have opinions of his own.)

    A faux pas for sure, but hardly a Sarah Palin style faux pas as there is no long term harm. This faux pas did not expose ignorance, it just exposed a lack of balls.
    If I invite you to my house for spaghetti dinner and then try to sell you Amway once I got you here, that would be a pretty douchey thing to do. What they did was a pretty douchey thing to do.

    Yep, those liberals sure have a knack for asking those piercing questions; you know, the ones that make you really think, like "Do you believe in evolution?" or "What newspapers do you read?" Those questions could put anyone into a cold sweat.

    He is an American politician going to London to hawk is wares. It was a political event for him and he got asked a question he would be asked on the campaign. Face it, he showed he was not yet ready for prime time, but, it is only spring training, metaphorically speaking.

    I've had Amway pitched to me three times in my life, only once did I not see it coming. But, if I am seeking a new business opportunity and someone pitches Amway, I am fair game.

    If he is going to further his presidential candidacy in a foreign country, where they will not see him again, any question is fair game. Walker's London trip is part of his testing of the Presidential waters. He stuck his toe in the water and it was bitten by a minnow. Wait until the sharks get to him.

    Looks like he consistently raised more questions than he answered, both here and abroad.

    Walker, in London, declines to talk about world affairs, evolution
