Audition?

Is Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker auditioning for presidential candidate?  Ed Rollins thinks so.

Go here  and scroll down to the sixth video.  Sorry about the scroll, but I can't find the Walker video as a single entity.

Whadaya think?

He knows a lot of the people to whom he is a hero don't want Christie.

Heard him on Michael Medved yesterday. I like his style.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

I think he was plugging his book entitled "Unintimidated" or something like that.

I don't care for that title, though, same as I don't care for internet tough guys or anybody who says something complimentary about themself that ought to be said by somebody else.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

Another kind of person who's annoying is the person who's constantly arguing with success.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

I had a friend in law school who was giving me pointers. He said, "Don't fight the facts."

That was good advice that I have yet to take to heart. I may not be the only one, though.

There's an evolutionary explanation, probably.

I hope so.

Eric, In litigation, the facts shall make you free. I was a gatherer of facts.

All the fish smell blood.

Conservative, not abrasive, very middle American. What's not to like?

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

On the TV the other night, I saw something kind of interesting.

Little fish, like sardines or herring, travel in schools, right? They've all got lateral lines and they communicate with each other by pressure waves and so they move as a unit which increases any one given fish's chances of surviving an attack.

But big fish eat little fish, right? A swordfish has that long, slender bill and it displaces very little water, relatively speaking. The swordfish moves in and inserts its bill into the school and thrashes it about and the wounded fish lose the protection of the school and the swordfish picks off the stragglers.

Pretty ingenius, no? But wait, there's more.

The swirling mass that is a school of fish is confusing to a predator. Well, not to a whale. They showed a school of fish all shimmery and shape-shifting and stuff and a whale came up from below and CHOMP!!! goes the whole kit and kaboodle.

One fish's defense system is another fish's Scooby snack, it would seem.

Eric the Fruit Bat, Good comments, but you offend Kris Kristykreme by calling him a fish.

Lem said...

He needs to raise his profile a lot more. My governor takes a lot of room.

The senate just voted to change filibuster rules for "certain" nominees.

It's not surprising that the democrats vote like they are in the majority.

From an article by Kurt Schlichter in Townhall.com

We feel you’re in it for yourself and that if you get elected your administration will be a festival of squishiness that would make George W. Bush look like Ted Cruz.

Getting up to talk about Mitt Romney and talking about yourself? Classless. Getting in a micturition contest with conservative warrior Rand Paul? Lame. And don’t delude yourself that we are mad because you hugged the President on the eve of the election. Our beef was your evident glee, as if you were publicly repudiating our imagined “irrational hatred.” We had beefs with Mitt Romney, but we respected him as a decent man and we saw your act as a cheap backstab designed to promote yourself when he needed you most.

Hey, you’re from Jersey. You can handle this real talk, right?

We think that you think we’re stupid. Call it a feeling or a vibe, but we are used to a certain class of Republican acting as if conservatives are drooling morons. Inevitably, these same GOP geniuses are the ones who prattled on and on about the electability of McCain and Romney. Note that they’re also giddy about you.

Whenever the fawning mainstream media – let’s see how fawning it is once you start endangering Hillary – interviews you, you always have a long list of things we conservatives have done wrong. You never offer us much credit for the little things we’ve done right, like – oh, I dunno – winning back the House.

We suspect your attitude demonstrates a willingness to disregard our concerns. After all, who cares what a bunch of dummies thinks, right? Just keep in mind that if these “dummies” stay home, you get to spend 2017 running out the clock in the Garden State while being the Curley of the Three Stooges of GOP presidential failure.

You have a real problem. Right now, a lot of conservatives – I need to emphasize, a lot – are threatening to stay home if you get nominated. Go ask Presidents McCain and Romney how that works out on election night

If Scott Walker was elected President, it would be the perfect closing on the Obama Administration: Guy who doesn't even have a Bachelor's replaces our Ivy League President.

He'd do a much better job too.

Trooper York said...

I said I like Niki Haley but reports from our South Carolina informants say that she might have a problem.

" Guy who doesn't even have a Bachelor's replaces our Ivy League President. "

Oh yea, I forgot about that. Now I'm in love.

AllenS said...

Who ever takes over after this affirmative actioned piece of shit, is going to have a lot of work to do.

Birches said...

Walker's proven he can clean up messes.

ndspinelli said...

Foreign policy is a big weakness for Walker. I see him as a good VP.

Trooper York said...

How could he be worse than Obama?

I mean Obama is surrendering to Iran. Leaving Afghanistan and Iraq in a shambles. Installed the Muslim Brotherhood in almost every Middle Eastern Country. Alienated England and Germany and France. Got played repeatedly by Putin. Throwing Israel under the bus.

Nothing that Walker could do would be worse.

If they ask him what he is going to do in foreign policy all that he would have to say is: "Whatever the Obama administration tried to do...I will do the exact opposite."

Trooper York said...

Obama's failures in domestic policy has covered up his massive failures in foreign policy.

ndspinelli said...

Being better than Obama is a pretty low bar.

Trooper York said...

Well Hillary is not exactly Winston Churchill for that matter.

There is nobody you need to fear in the foreign policy sphere on the Democrat side.

Well except for Elizabeth Warren. She is gonna want to refight the French and Indian war. Now that would be pretty popular.

Birches said...

Yes, foreign policy is the least pressing issue right now. But I trust that Walker at least knows competent people to handle that side of things. And he won't hang anyone out to dry.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Let's get this party started!

rcocean said...

Candidate Reagan was really weak on Foreign Policy as was TR, FDR, Coolidge, Truman, Wilson, and Bush II.

You know who was really "great" on foreign policy before they were elected? Taft, Nixon, Bush I, and Herbert Hoover.

rcocean said...

McCain and Dole knew a lot about Foreign Policy - as did John Kerry, Mondale, Humphrey, and LBJ.

If we're going to go by FP experience, lets re-nominate Bush I or nominate Colin Powell.

rcocean said...

The FP team that will win:

Scooter Libby/John Hunstsman

rcocean said...

Is Bob McNamara still alive? He knew more than Reagan about FP. Let's nominate him.

chickelit said...

I think we should wait to hear whether Martin Bashir of NBC wants to shit in Walker's mouth. That would be the tell that he's the right guy.

Unknown said...

The best and brightest need to fight it out, without too many death blows. The left will do what they can to avoid debate and destroy w lies and their standard vilification.

He could spend trillions and kill millions in a war of choice with no rational justification.

Trooper York said...

Seriously ARM?

Obama has spent trillions of trillions of dollars on bullshit and squandered lives in Afghanistan with no end in sight.

Stop with the Bush nonsense. Seriously dude you look really foolish.

Beloved Commenter AReasonableMan said...

Interesting article on the stupidity of the Iraq war here.

And, correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Bush start the war in Afghanistan.
