I have to admit to schadenfreude watching Scott Walker's faux run for the GOP nomination for the presidency, encouraged energetically by national political journalists.
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel columnist, Dan Bice, wrote in April 2013 that Scott Walker is not an "ideas guy," suggesting someone as error-prone as Walker who can't think on his feet "could earn him the distinction of being the Gov. Perry of the 2016 campaign." (Daniel Bice chat transcript on Thursday, April 18)
Now, it is revealed Scott Walker told a rightwing blog in January how he voted for Ronald Reagan. Only problem is Walker was 13 and 17-years-old during Reagan's two elections in 1980 and 1984.
I mean how can someone not remember whether or not he voted for Reagan, emphatically so when he was not old enough to vote yet?
Does anyone really need any more evidence this guy is a lightweight and a pathological, if petty liar?
Blogging Blue and The Political Environment have the story. "I remember, I was a teenager, had just become a teenager and voted for Ronald Reagan— limited government, you know, smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense. You knew what you were getting. You knew how a Reagan administration, a Reagan presidency was going to be better for you," Walker said.
And how do you "just become" a teenager and then vote?
This rumination of Walker's demonstrates anew Walker's penchant for making things up to fit his grandiose conception of himself, his inability to think on his feet and a level of deceit not seen in Wisconsin politics since Joe McCarthy.
And of course one can see why Walker hides from public encounters with the Wisconsin people, with the first and second John Doe probes casting doubt on his character, with more criminal records to be released.
