Scott Walker

I think he might be running for president.

You heard it here first.

Also, he sent me this email:

Friend, as a trusted leader in the Conservative movement I need to ask you an important question.

Should I run for President of the United States?

I have been praying about this decision for a long time and if I do decide to seek the Republican nomination for President I need to know you’ll stand with me.

If you think I should run please let me know by donating $10, $35, $75, $100, $250 or even $500 today.

America is at a crossroads and the lack of leadership over the past six years has put us on the wrong track. The challenges facing our great nation are robust and the next president must have the experience to solve complex problems.

Friend, you have been on the front lines, fighting for our shared conservative values. You and other grassroots leaders were instrumental in Republicans taking control of the U.S. House in 2010 and the U.S. Senate in 2014.

Now we must stand together to stop the Obama-Clinton machine from keeping the White House in 2016.

I didn’t inherit fame or fortune and I don’t think being President is by birthright, but I do believe I am uniquely qualified to lead this country.

Your early support will confirm my feelings and let me know if my family and I should embark on this journey. Donate any amount you can afford to let me know you’re on my side.

When we took office as Governor of Wisconsin our economy was in shambles due to years of reckless liberal spending, our unemployment rate was at 8.1 percent and we were ranked 41st in the country for places to do business.

The future looked bleak but I knew the conservative reforms we were about to put into motion could be the shot in the arm our state needed.

In four years we turned a $3.6 billion deficit into a surplus, unemployment is down to 4.6 percent and Wisconsin now ranks 12th in the country for places to do business.

Leadership and courage were the keys to my success and I know this kind of experience is just what our next President needs.

What worked in Wisconsin can work for America, but I can’t do it without your support.

Contribute $10, $35, $75, $100, $250, or even $500 on our secure website now to let me know I can count on you to support my decision.

The next few days will be critical and I need to know I can count on you.

So what do you think, Friend?

Should I run for President of the United States?

Scott Walker

    This should be fun. He will be a disaster. He will be torn apart by fellow Republicans at the national level. If he survives that Democrats are going to have a field day feeding on the scraps. I’m not donating anything. I’m sending him a bill for the thousands of dollars he’s cost me and my family the last few years and copies of my tax returns to prove it.

  2. Pat

    That’s quite the personal email.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    My donation will depend on whether the Bucks are out of here.

    If they go, I’ll send him one.

    If they stay, on state subsidy, not conservative enough for a donation. But I’ll still vote for him.

  4. Jadedly Unbiased

    You would vote for a guy willing to sign a bill supporting abortion before twenty weeks?

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    I ‘ll vote for someone that bans it after 20 weeks.

    I like incremental approach , it’s how liberals get things done.

    The current bill will curb the concentration camps for the pre born. Combined with the doctor privilege issue, he Is effectively shutting them down without all the pro extermination crowd running around protesting for more death.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann

    The alternative is Hillary, who wants to keep adding numbers to the death camps.

    Somebody has to pay social security taxes at some point.

    We can’t keep killing taxpayers on such a large scale!

  7. Jadedly Unbiased

    Personally I make no exceptions on his issue. You are either pro choice or pro life. Making exceptions to minimize voter loss is unacceptable. Doctor privilege has already been shot down in many states. This is a great example of sacrificing ones religious and moral principles for politics.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    the 20 week bill at least bans the 20+ week abortions. Its the biggest ray of sunshine the Pro-life movement has seen politcally in Wisconsin in a long time.

    Even the most pro-life Republicans are voting for this bill.

    I’d like it to be a total ban, but it will not survive the liberal death panels on the court.

    This law should survive.

    Maybe a separate law can get the rest of the way.

  9. Jadedly Unbiased

    The reason it’s not a total ban is because they are afraid to give up votes not liberal death panels. They have the majority. They could push it through? Republicans are cowards and unwilling to take a stance against what most of the religious right see as the most important issue. Same with the arena, prevailing wage etc. etc.. Cowards, absolute cowards. They are their sacrificing their religious and moral principles for politics. Walker is also breaking his campaign promise… To ban abortion. If he’s unwilling to take a stance here in Wisconsin, while he has the majority, he will never do it nationally.
