Walker’s In

It’s a great day for Wisconsin to see one of her sons announce that he’s running for the highest office in the land.

I just finished listening to his announcement. It was long on policy and optimism and short on attacks with a huge chunk of the speech dedicated to foreign policy. He spoke without a podium to a fawning crowd of supporters.

Of the 14 other Republican announcements we have seen so far, this was, by farm the best. It was especially a dramatic contrast to Hillary Clinton’s announcement via video.

The race is on!

  1. Fairs Fare

    Walker claimed to have put money back into education at the local level as he waved a dollar bill around. That’s a lie. More then any other, Walker has made the greatest cuts to education. $1,000,000,000 plus and counting (just k-12). He claimed to fight for the unborn. That’s a lie. He’s only fighting for 1% of the unborn. Walker is not one of Wisconsin’s sons and is definitely not “by farm the best”. After watching this I feel a little taken advantage of and kind of sick to my stomach. He will not revive any support from me. I am going to buy a giant NO WALKER sign tomorrow.

    Richard Trumka: ‘Scott Walker is a national disgrace’

  3. Mark Maley

    He is a sheep in sheep’s clothing .

  4. Fairs Fare

    Sheep’s clothing bought from Kohl’s. He’s going to model the U.S. Economy after a store who’s product line is over priced junk made in China that he claims they give away for nearly nothing. Sounds like a great plan.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann

    Planned Parenthood calls Walker the “most dangerous governor in America”.

    That is good enough for me.

    When liberal killers hate the candidate, that means he’s a great choice.

    I hope that everyone that made fun of other candidates, and presidents, wives
    for the way they look, and the size of their thighs, will take it easy on Tonette. No one deserves that.

  7. the bystander

    Remember the way the national media treated Anne Romney, a woman from a wealthy background with a list of personal accomplisments and challenges overcome? Wait until they get their talons on the short, heavy uneducated frumpy hair dresser’s daughter Tonette Walker. Remember how Nancy Reagan and her staff mocked Rosalynn Carter for being a provincial hick. What ambition drives a man like Walker to put his wife through that scrutiny.

  8. Fairs Fare

    ALL First Ladies are subjected to scrutiny. It’s the nature of the beast.
