Gov. Scott Walker Won’t Admit Obama is Christian… But At Least He Didn’t Say Obama Hates America

Scott Walker

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, an unfortunately likely contender for the 2016 Republican nomination for President, says he doesn’t know whether or not President Obama is Christian.

Side note: if you’re unfamiliar with Gov. Walker, just picture a younger George W. Bush – but without the education. Seriously, he never graduated.

In an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting of the National Governors Association, Gov. Walker replied “I don’t know” when asked if he thought President Obama was a Christian.

When informed that Obama had often spoken publicly about his Christian beliefs, Walker continued to play dumb.

“I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,” he added.

A spokesman for Walker later said the governor was taking a principled stand by not answering irrelevant questions, not casting doubt on the president’s faith. Plus, he simply wanted to confirm his conservative voters suspicions that Obama is a raging Muslim.

But at least Gov. Walker didn’t come out and say Obama hates America. That gem belongs to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” said the former New York mayor at an event supporting Gov. Walker. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.”

Scott Walker could have taken the John McCain route and actively challenged conservatives attacking Obama’s patriotism and citizenship… but instead he took the Scott Walker route and pleaded ignorance, declining to condemn or condone Giuliani’s comments.

“I don’t know, I honestly don’t know, one way or the other,” Walker said about Obama’s patriotism. “I’ve said that 100 times, too.”

You could fill a book with things Gov. Walker doesn’t know: Obama’s religion, Obama’s level of patriotism, whether or not evolution is real… In retrospect it probably wasn’t a good idea for him to drop out of school.

Gov. Scott Walker: Screw Your Kids, Give Their Christmas Gifts to Me

Scott Walker Christmas

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker knows that Christmas isn’t about crass commercialism; it’s about giving to those less fortunate (aka his chances at reelection).

Scott Walker, who is up for reelection next year, is currently tied in the polls with Democrat Mary Burke. In order to stave off a Democratic win, he needs all the Christmas funding he can get – or some kind of Christmas miracle. So this year, in the spirit of Christmas and political campaigning, Walker’s campaign team sent an email asking donors to forgo giving their children Christmas presents and instead donate to his reelection effort.

The email, send out over the weekend, read:

“Instead of venturing into the cold this Black Friday, stay in and give your children a gift that will keep on giving … Donate $5, $10 or $25 to help Governor Walker get re-elected and save your children from a future of double-digit tax increases and billion-dollar deficits.”

And the note didn’t stop there. Walker and friends went on to point out that any “electronics or toys” that parents buy for their children “will undoubtedly be outdated, broken, or lost by the next Holiday Season,” whereas a contribution to the Walker reelection effort will help to create “a Wisconsin as great as the one [Walker] grew up in.”

You hear that children? Toys are temporary, but political contributions are forever.

The Walker campaign staffer responsible for this Grinch-like fundraising appeal, 23 year-old Deputy Finance Director Taylor Palmisano, has since been fired from the campaign – but not for asking parents to ruin their children’s Christmas. No, she was fired for sending out racist Tweets about Hispanics back in 2011.
