Scott Walker Endorses Ted Cruz

Good. I’m glad he got off the fence.

Washington (CNN)Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker formally endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Tuesday, saying he is “a strong new leader” and “constitutional conservative.”

“After all these years of the Obama-Clinton failures, it’s time we elect a strong new leader and I’ve chosen to endorse Ted Cruz,” Walker told conservative radio host Charlie Sykes on Newsradio 620 WTMJ Tuesday.

    After what Trump said yesterday about Walker…any Walker supporter voting for Trump has taken themselves out of that category.

    A vote for Trump in WI means a vote against Walker, one of the greatest PROVEN government reformers in history of U.S.

    Great post. That hit the nail right on the head. But “respect” might not be the right word. Pity might be a better choice.

    I still believe the only way to save Republicans from a total embarrassing ass kicking is to vote for John Kasich, pray for a brokered convention, and bring some sanity back to this.

  4. Pat

    And, it’s time to get rid of Reince Priebus. He’s a bigger disaster than Michael Steele.

  5. Pat

    So Kev, are you still voting for Cruz?

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’m voting Cruz in primary. If it ends up Trump vs. Clinton, the Libertarian looks good in Novemeber.

    I find it interesting on the wild speculation and unsubstantiated proposition about his infidelity when Trump is the ultimate icon when it comes to infidelity. Don’t even get me started on the Clinton cabal.

    I thought any alleged infidelity was a “private matter” by liberal standards?

    I guess that is true, except if its a candidate you wisah to destroy.

    Where is the proof of the infidelity?

    Until then, I’ll give Cruz benefit of the doubt that he is innocent and simply refuses to acknowledge the evil liberal false witness questions on the topic.

    “I find it interesting on the wild speculation and unsubstantiated proposition about his infidelity when Trump is the ultimate icon when it comes to infidelity. Don’t even get me started on the Clinton cabal.”

    That’s one of the many reason’s I would never vote for Trump, and didn’t vote for Bill Clinton.

    I believe Cruz the same way I believed Lance Armstrong and Ryan Braun.

    That’s fine. I don’t share your jumping to conclusions until it is proven. The utltimate problem is: John Kasich has no chance of winning nomination, and little chance of derailing Trump.

    Trump is the bigger problem.

    Personally, I’d consider an unredemtive Darth Vader a better vote than Trump. That’s how dangerous I consider the Trump threat to America.

    I guess my bullshit detector is better than yours.

    John Kasich has a chance in a brokered convention. The majority of Republicans can’t stand Cruz or Trump. And, neither one has a snowballs chance in hell of winning the general election.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    Kasich has a chance in a brokered convention?

    What was that about a BS detector?

  12. old baldy


    According to a number of bloggers and pundits (all of whom I would trust more than you) Kasich has just a good of a chance as any at a brokered convention.

    So infidelity by Bill Clinton (who isn’t running for president) is bad, yet alleged infidelity by Cruz (who won’t answer the question, see above), and adultery (remember she admitted to it) by Bradley is OK? Better get that BS detector re-calibrated.

  13. Kevin Scheunemann


    So refusing to answer a scurrilous question makes you guilty of infidelity?


    Clinton was cheating on his wife while president of U.S. (and before, and after)

    Bradley’s alleged issue was 12 years ago. And seems to not have been a recurring issue.

    Hard to forgive someone of the issue if they keep doing it.

    That is what sets Clinton apart.

  14. Pat

    That plus Clinton’s a liberal and Bradley’s a conservative. See Baldy, there’s a big difference.

  15. old baldy


    Thanks for the reminder. In kevinland that makes a world of difference.


    Take your comprehension pills. Do you know what the word “alleged” means? It isn’t alleged if you admit it in court. You misused it twice in one post. Wow.

    And Bill isn’t running for POTUS. Or did you forget?

  16. Dave

    Hah! On the mark old baldy! Kev, I assume the infidelity with Clinton has some clear distinction between that admitted by Bradley and that only half heartedly denied by Cruz because he fears the truth coming out. This is what happens when Republicans make sexual antics fair game. Karma bites them in the ass!

  17. Kevin Scheunemann

    Pat, Dave, baldy:

    So any politician having sex outside a marital union now deserves to be trashed?

    You would have same ‘let’s trash them reaction’ (like you want to do to Cruz) if it was Tammy Baldwin, Barney Frank, or Mark Pocan?

  18. Pat


    What politician are you talking about?

  19. old baldy


    Maybe we should only trash the hypocrites like Bradley and Cruz since they are running as “family values” candidates.

    And remind us of how we can vote for Tammy, Barney, or Mark in the election next week?

  20. Kevin Scheunemann


    I just object to the liberal standard that certain sexual behaviors are rewarded with “courage” and “bravery”, while others are used to demean and trash.

    If you are going to stick up for “family values”, faithful marriage under God’s design, then all should be fair game under that standard, not just conservatives.

    Liberals have never stuck to that standard, so from a political standard it’s shocking to hear any criticism about these “private matters”.
