"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I don't know, and I don't care. It's not about the prank call, it's about what he said. Besides the bat thing, it certainly appeared that he attempted to get more campaign money, not just for himself, but also his comrades during the conversation:
WATCHDOG EXPLORING CAMPAIGN FINANCE AND ETHICS LAW-BREAKING BY SCOTT WALKER DURING FAKE CALL WITH BILLIONAIRE
As David Donnelly pointed out:Relevant section (At the 4 minute mark: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3a2pYGr7-k)
Gov. Walker: “After this in some of the coming days and weeks ahead, particularly in some of these more swing areas, a lot of these guys are going to need, they don’t need initially ads for them, but they’re going to need a message out. Reinforcing why this was a good thing to do for the economy, a good thing to do for the state. So to the extent that message is out over and over again is certainly a good thing.”
Ian Murphy (posing as David Koch): “Right, right. We’ll back you any way we can.”
“In a call with who he thought to be billionaire political donor David Koch, Gov. Walker may have broken campaign finance and ethics laws,” said David Donnelly, national campaigns director for Public Campaign Action Fund. “If he did, he should resign.
“If you didn’t believe it before, you have to now—this fight isn’t about the budget, it’s about favors for corporate special interests,” continued Donnelly. “If Wisconsin law forbids coordination with political donors similar to federal law, Gov. Scott Walker is not just in political trouble, but in legal hot water.”
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

It's up to Scott Walker to be smart about what he's doing and if he is not genuine about his goals or he's pulling a fast one on the people of WI, they should know it. Apparently though, he is genuine and these bloggers blew their load and got no big scoop.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Err, I think the more interesting issue is how this all shows the governor's goal isn't fiscal rebalancing, it's union-busting. The union offered to accept all the financial issues but keep their collective bargaining rights. He wouldn't agree.
If the goal was really deficit reduction, why wouldn't he take that deal?
One of you will end up here next!
