    Scott Walker side steps foreign policy questions on UK trip

    Madison, Wisconsin Likely 2016 presidential candidate Scott Walker refused to say Wednesday whether he believes in the theory of evolution, dodging that question and several others about foreign policy after delivering a speech about global trade in London.

    "I'm going to punt on that one as well," said Wisconsin's Republican governor when asked about evolution at the end of an hour-long appearance at the prestigious Chatham House think tank. "That's a question a politician shouldn't be involved in one way or the other. So I'm going to leave that up to you."

    The British audience groaned and also laughed at Walker. The moderator says "Oh REALLY??? ANY British politician, right or left, would laugh and say 'yes of course evolution is true.'"

    Thanks Scott, for demonstrating to the world how backward and superstitious one of America's two great political parties are.

    If he's an embarrassment, he has a lot of company here!

    If that's the best ya' got to criticize Scott Walker, he's got more of a chance than I thought.

    Had Walker answered any questions on US foreign policy 2 years prior to an election especially while the President is trying to figure out what to do and how to handle ISIS and Syria, certain folk would have jumped on that as well. And rightly so. It would be inappropriate for a state governor to undermine US foreign policy.

    But you are 100% correct Maggie. Theres a whole lot of people going to be responding to every GOP candidate out of fear. Hillary suddenly has gone MIA and is nowhere near the rock solid lock everyone thought she was going to be. Even members within her own party are embarrassed of her and want someone else to run.

    I believe this is the wrong forum for this thread.

    The US would lose a lot of credibility both foreign and domestic if it elected someone who doesn't believe in science.


    I think Walker just kissed his chance for the nomination, goodbye.

    Could damage scientific advancement. We don't need any presidents that deny evolution or believe the earth is flat.
