    No doubt the feeding frenzy on Walker from his own side will begin in earnest since he's the new flavor of the month.



    We're not going to agree on Walker--you've been passionate with your defense of him since I came on here and I respect that.
    It is good to see you posting again.
    Since electioneering is never-ending now .

    Sen. Rubio is not a rabid foaming in the mouth liberal.
    Did you see his comment at the end of the article?

    This is just the beginning of the attacks on Walker from his own party as you know.
    DEMs need to just step back and let the vicious attacks between GOPs continue as they did in 2012.

    If Walker gets the nomination, one of the most divisive issues will be his ending of collective bargaining for public unions.
    I recognize your anti-union feelings and can only wonder how you would feel if you had one of those jobs .

    "Excuse me, Governor Walker, is there anything else we can ask you that will inevitably alienate some of the people who might vote for you?"

    "Governor Walker, we understand you are a non-denominational Christian... Why do you believe that the Catholics, Baptists, and Mormons are wrong?"

    "Governor Walker, how do you feel about hip hop music?"
    "Political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. . . . Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."

    That's probably true since the GOP in my state won't let anyone vote in their primaries except neighborhood GOP caucus leaders. So even if I wanted to, I couldn't.

    God dammit. There goes another potential candidate for me. At this rate all I have left are Bush and Christie, maybe Marco Rubio, plus some of the wild cards who probably wont run.

    Re: Scott Walker--Embarrassment to America

    I saw this earlier today--Walker dropping out his Senior year.
    The article I saw had Walker crashing his 20 year reunion at his private school Marquette, where his son goes.
    Yet now he wants to cut $300 million from the public school University of Wisconsin.

    But Walker thrives on his anti-public union credentials.
    In the article of the OP, he later tweeted using the 'press' card, SOP from the party still on Nixon steroids.


    Should be fun seeing AJIveMan from Wisconsin showing up for this one .

    Re: Scott Walker--Embarrassment to America

    The nation is currently led by a Christian, one who openly professes his faith in God and Christ, who admits his beliefs are centered on his faith, and who believes the Bible as a foundation of creationism. Has the world gone to Hell?

    "You know, what I've said to them is that I believe that God created the universe and that the six days in the Bible may not be six days as we understand it, it may not be 24-hour days, and that's what I believe. I know there's always a debate between those who read the Bible literally and those who don't, and that I think it's a legitimate debate within the Christian community of which I'm a part. My belief is that the story that the Bible tells about God creating this magnificent Earth on which we live -- that is essentially true, that is fundamentally true. Now, whether it happened exactly as we might understand it reading the text of the Bible. That, I don't presume to know."

    Re: Scott Walker--Embarrassment to America

    I like how he avoids answering questions and then has a spokesperson "clarify" his stance the next day. It's the Washington version of "we'll fix it in post."

    In a way I don't blame him. Candidates and would-be/will-be candidates get jumped on for anything remotely controversial. You answer down party lines and anything that might alienate part of your voter base? Punt. Walker should have answered those questions with "I need to win the bible belt and the Ron Paul faction, so shut up."
