    Of course it is, I'm sure there were people protesting that are related to and/or take care of special needs people, too. The complaint he made is entirely because of his politics.

    Second, why does it matter what he said? Does it give your stupid position some more authority or something?

    No, because it doesn't matter.

    He lied about nothing. They were confrontied by protestors... who politicized a non-political event... which showed a complete lack of civility.

    I must try to remember that expressing opinons is frowned upon... if you're a member of the GOP.

    How were they "confronted"?

    who politicized a non-political event...
    Scott Walker is a politician. He politicized the event by being there.

    He stated that his own supposition did not matter, and I kindly agreed with him. Sorry you have a problem with that.
