History’s Greatest Monster: A Scott Walker Presidency ‘Would Be a Disaster’

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who has won three statewide elections in a blue state, has so freaked out the leftist media it’s a wonder if some of them will even make it to the day he declares his candidacy for president.

Let’s stipulate up front that Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, is an odious politician whose ascension to the Presidency would be a disaster.

Why that seems a fair way to start off a hitpiece.

Set aside, for a moment, his repeated refusal, in the past few days, to say whether he believes that President Obama loves America, or whether he believes that the President is a Christian, and look instead at Walker’s record running what used to be one of America’s more progressive states. Having cut taxes for the wealthy and stripped many of Wisconsin’s public-sector unions of their collective-bargaining rights, he is now preparing to sign a legislative bill that would cripple unions in the private sector. Many wealthy conservatives, such as the Koch brothers, who have funnelled a lot of money to groups supporting Walker, regard him as someone who’s turning his state into a showcase for what they want the rest of America to look like.

Hates Obama. Check. Question’s Obama’s religion. Check. Cut taxes for the wealthy. Check.

KOCH BROTHERS! OMG!!!

It’s curious to know whether this drooling idiot has even been awake during the past six years.

But just how threatening is he? If you’ve been following the political news during the past week, you may well have the impression that he’s stumbling in his campaign for the 2016 G.O.P. nomination. Among the political commentariat, the consensus of opinion is that Walker’s repeated refusal to distance himself from Rudy Giuliani’s incendiary comments about Obama, and his subsequent encounter with the Washington Post’s Dan Balz and Robert Costa, during which he appeared to question Obama’s religious faith and took some shots at the media for asking him silly questions, weren’t merely reprehensible: they were serious gaffes that raised questions about Walker’s political abilities.

But what about your gaffes that we’ve entirely manufactured out of nothing, Governor?

Evaluated in this context, Walker’s comments, or refusals to comment, about Obama’s beliefs look less like gaffes and more like carefully considered elements of a larger plan—and one that’s working for him. On Tuesday, the research firm Public Policy Polling released the results of a new national survey of Republican voters, which showed Walker leading the G.O.P. race, with twenty-five per cent of the vote. He was seven percentage points ahead of the candidate in second place, Ben Carson, the author and neurosurgeon, and eight percentage points ahead of Jeb Bush. “Walker is climbing fast in the polling because of his appeal to the most conservative elements of the Republican electorate,” said P.P.P. “Among ‘very conservative’ voters he leads with 37% to 19% for Carson, 12% for Bush, and 11% for Huckabee.”

This is just one poll, and the sample size was small—three hundred and sixteen—but recent state-level polls also show Walker near or in the lead. In California, according to the highly respected Field poll, he’s favored by eighteen per cent of Republicans. Bush is in second place with sixteen per cent, and Rand Paul is in third place with ten per cent. In Texas, a survey carried out by the University of Texas at Austin shows Walker running second, but he’s trailing local boy Ted Cruz by just one percentage point. When a previous poll was taken, in October, only two per cent of Texan Republicans favored Walker; now, he’s standing at nineteen per cent. In South Carolina, according to another P.P.P. survey, he’s also running second, just one point behind Bush, and leading Lindsey Graham, the state’s senior representative in the U.S. Senate.

Translation: We’re already so hysterical about Walker we must do anything to destroy him. Our liberal echo chamber has declared it so. To show you how seriously people take the New Yorker these days, this dreck has racked up a whole seven retweets:

Readers were not impressed:

At least they got a good chuckle out of it:

The ridicule poured in:

Pretty soon Cassidy will be whining about those meanies attacking him.

Let’s hope Cassidy sleeps with the lights on:

The frothing left will always tell you who they fear, and clearly it’s Scott Walker:

    When you want me to stipulate at the beginning the conclusion you’ve reached you don’t have much of an argument. To bad the MBM burned their credibility getting O’bama elected and protecting him from his scandals while in office isn’t it? The more they attempt to destroy Walker the stronger he gets.

    Walker is no conservative. His claim to fame is standing up to the unions. Great. He’s raised taxes, increased spending, embraced Common Core, loves gun control, will not oppose amnesty, is pro affirmative action. He is Obama lite.

    This only goes to prove how far left the media and the Democrats are today. My dad was a republican till the day he died. Then he voted Democrat there after.
