  1. Walker has a huge opportunity here if he has the wherewithal to look at Trump and figure out how Trump talks without being so damned dismissive and insulting all of the time!

    I’m telling you, his reforms in Wisconsin and his tenacity and this sheer guts will lead the day if he figures out how to start talking to people instead of talking to reporters.

  2. Walker has been trying to rip off Cruz because he knows Cruz is a smart man. Remember Dayspring bashed Cruz and works for Walker. I really don’t see why people like Walker that much. Big deal he broke the unions in cheese land. What else has he done. He will crash and burn!

  3. Tsu

    Then it’s a mutual respect league!

    I’ve long been jealous of Walker living in the People’s “Republic” of Illinois.

    But I worry as we move forward. Scott has ONLY had gubmint experience, and as Trump has shown, that and a $10 bill will get you a meager snack at Starbucks.

  4. what are you smoking?

    He turned the state around. They were in the hole and digging it deeper by the day. He turned that around and improved the state by cutting taxes and doing all the conservative things governors can do to help a state prosper.

    Part of that involved pissing off the libs and the unions who were bleeding the state dry.

    He survived a recall election and then was re-elected.

    So let’s take a look at what he’s done, objectively.

    a) applied conservative principles and proved they work
    b) stood up to liberals and unions – and won
    c) survived multiple elections and smear campaigns in a blue state

    So, yeah, that’s something that needs done at the national level, maybe he deserves a closer look? Hmmm?

  5. Whoa dude. “Big deal, he broke the unions in cheese land”????

    Ahhh, I would’t make light of going toe to toe with the most powerful union in the country and winning 3!! times. He faced not only the NEA but the combined efforts of WI’s corrupt courts, national efforts from other major unions and a vile, left dominated media that openly sided with the NEA.

    You don’t think there was massive voter fraud in those recalls? Don’t you remember the stories of the mass busings? Yet Walker won by such a large margin, it didn’t matter.

    No big deal? Hey man, my guy is Cruz too but Walker has done something that NO OTHER CANDIDATE has done. It’s in fact such a BIG DEAL, that it’s why I’m giving him a pass(so far) on hiring Dayspring. It’s a huge mistake to discount the reforms he championed in WI. They’ve made fundamental changes in the power structure. And that was in a historically deep blue state.

    This union, the NEA, which I’ve frequently cited as our Enemy #1 if we are ever to start to take back this country, must be squashed just like Walker did in WI. Teacher union participation is down almost 60% because he hit them where they were most vulnerable.

    Right now, should Ted fade, I would have no problem supporting Scott whole heartedly. In the meantime, I’m planning a fundraiser at my gallery in Midland for Ted. What are you doing?

  6. I like Scoot.

    He’s in first place in the Iowa caucus and holding strong.
    And he’s AHEAD of Clinton in the polls in 3 key swing states!
