His entire campaign is based upon the theory that the Elite are wrong and we need to stop listening to them.

In todays installment he is going head to head with the feminists on their assertion that we have a rape crisis on campus. Absolutely nobody with any kind of national standing either R or D has been willing to do this till now.

Can it work? The elite through the national media is currently crucifying him, but that is probably a good thing for him, especially with it as it does coming on the heels of the Brian Williams scandal.

It must be noting that conservatives have been loudly proclaiming for over a decade that THE reason the R's have failed to get the POTUS chair is that the money people in the party keep pushing non conservatives. After Obama showed what can be done with loads of micro donations is there any reason to doubt the logic of Walkers run against the elite? Given the mood of the country there is no way that Walker losses in a match up with Hillary, which is why even the elite will end up supporting Walker, because the R's owning both Congress and POTUS is too tempting to pass up. The R's of all stripes will fall in line because he is a conservative hero who has what it takes to win.

Walker is surging thanks to his performance at this week's Conservative Political Action Conference, where the union-busting governor inspired raucous applause with his "I was a dick in Wisconsin, and I can be one in Washington, too!" stump speech.

Another major media outlet has apologized after getting a story about Scott Walker wrong. Last week, it was the New York Times; now, it’s The Daily Beast.
The Daily Beast has retracted an article from one of its college columnists that claimed that the Wisconsin governor’s budget would cut sexual assault reporting from the state’s universities.

The post, published Friday, cited a report from Jezebel that wrongly interpreted a section of the state budget to mean that all assault reporting requirements were to get cut altogether.
In fact, the University of Wisconsin system requested the deletion of the requirements to get rid of redundancy, as it already provides similar information to the federal government, UW System spokesman Alex Hummel told The Associated Press on Friday.
The Daily Beast’s correction and retraction is posted in full below. The “USA Today” story it references, however, is actually an AP article posted on the site

He's a moron!

I think we should start a GOFUNDME campaign to send him over and try to take on ISIS.

SCOTT WALKER’S PALIN MOMENT: THINKS HE CAN TAKE ON ISIS BECAUSE HE TOOK ON UNIONS

Quote:
Who can forget Sarah Palin’s infamous foreign policy credentials? She would be perfect for the job, because you can see Russia from a remote island off the coast of Alaska.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker decided on Thursday to summon the spirit of stupidity, the same one that saw Palin’s political dreams go down in an electoral landslide, and claim something just as dumb:

SCOTT WALKER’S PALIN MOMENT: THINKS HE CAN TAKE ON ISIS BECAUSE HE TOOK ON UNIONS


He was on Channel 5 today's (Sunday) interview. He was asked if he knows the difference between Union protesters and ISIS.

His answer made sense, he was implying with his first speech, that he will plan a strategy with ISIS the same way he did with the protesters. In other words, applying to each event the best strategy.

He was asked if he was the president he is willing to send US ground troops to fight ISIS. He responded to look first for a coalition with Arab countries, and so forth.

In other words, he doesn't think that sending US troops to fight alone against ISIS is the best strategy, and I can tell you that his position is very smart.

He declared himself as "pro-life", something that from any point of view based on the best for society and our species, is the best choice. From what I have understood in his answer, he is not declaring a war against abortion, because he recognizes what the Judicial system has sentenced, but he will work to provide more paths (help?) for women avoiding pregnancy, and so forth.

This is the first time I have paid attention to his points, his character, his records, and so far he looks as a candidate with great potential to become the next president of the USA.

I might wait for him to make mistakes, to mess up, and observe how good he fixes his own problems. Then, I will be able to judge how good is he as a politician.

If he doesn't make mistakes, then my first impression will be that he indeed has a wonderful campaign manager who is taking very well the cover ups.

Scott Walker’s Wisconsin Falls To 49th In Economic Outlook

Quote:
Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) is a conservative hero with a record of taking progressives and unions in a state that went for Obama and beating them twice. He’s cut government, taken away worker protections, supported government-mandated ultrasounds and empowered the private sector, making him the Republican insiders’ favorite for the 2016 GOP nomination.

His only problem is, his economic policies continue to fail — miserably.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia has ranked the Badger State 49th in its 50-state Leading Index report for April. With an index rank of -0.74 percent, Wisconsin was one of only five states to show contraction.

Experts do not read much into one month’s data. This index — which factors in average manufacturing hours, unemployment, wage trends and building permits — often shows a wide margin of error. The state has been especially rocked by the national decline in manufacturing.

However, Walker doesn’t really have any positive economic data to point to. Since he took office, his state has fallen from 11th to 44th in job creation. Wisconsin’s wages are also declining at twice the national level.

Walker’s new budget — which reads more like a campaign document than a plan to create jobs — offers a tax cut that mostly benefits the rich and sucks public funds into private ventures, in the form of school vouchers.

@djjd62,
Wisconsin has been an economic problem for a long time, powered by Milwaukee being in a multi decades decline. Milwaukee is tied to Chicago but Chicago is increasingly in big trouble too so it has not saved the city to the North.

THis has nothing to do with Walker except that this is the reason the citizens of Wisconsin have signed onto his drastic plans for reform.

Profile

Wisconsin’s economy is driven by manufacturing, agriculture and healthcare. The state is also the nation’s leading producer of cheese. The Badger State adopted the slogan of “Open for Business” in 2011, erecting signs along the state border. Wisconsin’s forecasted job picture has improved dramatically since then moving from No. 49 to No. 21 this year.

In any event, here’s bottom line #1: That $3.6 billion shortfall that preceded Walker’s first budget is best compared to the projected shortfall Walker faced in his second budget. That number was actually a positive one -- $177 million, according to Walker administration reports. That underscores Walker’s success at reducing budgeting tricks in the first budget.

So, the swing isn’t more than $4.1 billion, it’s more like $3.77 billion.

The apples-to-apples view still favors Walker, just not quite as much as he portrayed.

Our rating

Walker says in his book that "the $3.6 billion deficit we inherited has turned into more than a half-billion-dollar surplus."

There’s some truth here, in that Walker cites accurate or close-to-accurate numbers that show a turnaround from red to black in two years.

But his claim has a context problem because it mixes two different ways to define the size of the turnaround. When viewed properly, the turnaround falls a little short of what he says.

We rate his claim Half True.

http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2013/nov/15/scott-walker/gov-scott-walker-says-he-turned-36-billion-deficit/

This is a win in almost any ones books, as he is much more honest and much more successful than most governors.

A governor that politifacts says was highly successful in getting rid of accounting tricks on a government budget? That is almost unheard of in any state, or in Washington.

@hawkeye10,
Pretty much the entire state has been afflicted with white flight, which we have seen so many times before to negative effect. This is what Walker is trying to fix. It is not a shock that the citizens of this state were desperate enough to try the conservative proposed solutions, because the alleged liberal solutions had a long record of failure. If Walker is successful in making Wisconsin "open for business" the conservatives will make the case that this state and Texas proves that the conservative approach works (in spite of the hilarious claim from liberals that Texas has been successful almost exclusively because of the liberal city of Austin).

@coldjoint,
Do people really fall for such things? For instance " in the midwest" is meaningless till you define what the midwest is, how many states. Not till then can we tell how much separates second best from third worst. And changes in education performance take decades to fully change the economy if it does at all, and education results dont have a whole lot to do with the amount spent anyways.......we americans are notorious for throwing gobs of money at efforts but getting crappy results in return, because we dont spend our money wisely.


Are liberals intellectually operating at age 6?

I guess median income figures are meaningless too? If you take out the midwest qualification?

I don't agree that it takes decades. Education spend changes the entire society's confidence in the future and approach to life in general. What hope do you have for the future when your child's social mobility stultified by a failing education system? How do you approach institutions in general when it looks you and yours can never find a path toward more economic security?

And the suggestion that education does not change economies is worthy of a six year old.
