insights on Cuba
True to form, Scott Walker has already proven himself a lightweight and the 2016 campaign has not taken shape.
Said Walker on the new Cuba policy:
"I think it's a bad idea," the Republican governor told reporters in the Wisconsin state Capitol. "I don't think there's been any noticeable change toward making that a more free and prosperous country.
"No matter who the president is, no matter what party's in charge, consistently we've said in the past if you want to have a more normal relationship with the United States, you need to show you're committed to the same freedoms and rights that we have here in the United States," Walker said.
Asked if he believed Saudi Arabia was a free and open country and what he made of the United States' relationship with that country, Walker said: "They're making a few moves right now but those are things that can be easily altered, at least in terms of Cuba. In terms of Saudi Arabia, we haven't — those are things I guess folks at the federal level would ultimately have to comment on in terms of whether its consistency or not. The difference I think with Cuba is that's a policy the United States has had for some time. To change that, I think there has to be substantial change in terms of the positions that the Cuban government has." (Marley, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) (emphasis added)
No, Scott Walker, you do not think.
