Will WI Governor Scott Walker Be The GOP Choice For POTUS In 2016?

Just a theory based on how stately he looked busting up them unions.

Anyone else seen this guy?

I've heard of him

I hear the Walker in him is the same Walker of George Herbert Walker Bush fame. Maybe Jeb is just a smokescreen to slip this other Bushie in under our noses.

What do you make of the guy?

Romney was governor here when I first moved to Beantown. Nobody liked him, that I can recall.

Nobody.

Walker is so crooked he pees around corners.

I'd love to rub his bald spot on my jeans and see if he'll stick to the ceiling like a balloon.

Yeah I'm not a fan.

Thanks

I try to keep up with the emerging GOP Playoff picture. This is helpful. I see that he likes ham sandwiches. That is an important detail. Leave it to the NYT to pick up on important details like that.

Mr. Walker’s practical message — delivered in unadorned terms and his nasal, Wisconsin flatness — matched the moment of financial crisis in a state that Barack Obama had carried in 2008 and would again in 2012. Mr. Walker regularly mentioned his daily lunch along the campaign trail: two ham-and-cheese sandwiches from home. Plain fare for austere times.

And the "unadorned nasal flatness" should help Rand fans feel not so alone.

I see he's got a new book out, just in time for the season:

Unintimidated: A Governor's Story and a Nation's Challenge. That goofy grin isn't going to help him much.

And, of course, he's a statist.

In this critical swing state, Mr. Walker knows he must appeal not just to conservatives, but also to Wisconsin’s independent voters, and he recently distanced himself from a resolution, backed by some in the Tea Party, asserting the state’s right to secede in extreme circumstances.

That's not going to fly with a lot of folks around here.

I agree

I saw this from a mile away. They will push him ahead hard at the very end near the primaries. You just watch, all the clowns in the MSM saying "it will be a Governor in 2016". They'll paint him has the hometown hero, a down to Earth father. Some garbage as they are smearing Rand with who knows what.

Not that I believe it matters whether one has a government sanctioned BS college degree, but I do think him not having one will be a really big problem for him in the coming years. He is saying he is trying to go back though......stay home scumbag.

Wisconsin's 'budget surplus' will swing it in '16...

When were all scratching in the dirt for a grain of rice.

the gop will elect the dems

the gop will elect the dems by default in 2016 if they nominate this fool. The only way isee the gop winning in 2016 is RAND PAUL. They nominate anyone else and the gop will elect hillary!
