The list of GOP candidates grows then shrinks……but one candidate that is probably running but has not made it official yet with an announcement is Wisconsin’s governor Scott Walker….he appears to be the darling of the Right…..the Right that has half a brain that is……
I judge a candidate by his answers to foreign policy questions…..why? Internationally is where we have the most problems and the most entanglements…….foreign policy experience does mean a more aware candidate…….
But what about Walker’s chops internationally?
Okay he was a governor and that could be good to govern the country…….but he said that one of his strong suits is that he has visited other countries……
“And I do think if foreign policy plays an important role, the contrast will be clear because just about everywhere Hillary Clinton has played a role with this president — under President Obama — that part of the world is largely a failure, a mess,” he continued. “Because of the policies we’ve seen from Obama and Clinton.”
After noting that Walker had recently visited Israel, a trip partially paid for by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, Schieffer wondered what made the Wisconsin governor qualified to lead the county’s foreign policy.
“As a governor, I’ve been, just recently in Germany, in Spain and France,” Walker explained. “Earlier in the year, it was the United Kingdom on trade related missions. A few years back in China and Japan. So, that’s probably the most of any governor of either party has is that experience in terms of trade relations.”
If visiting other countries would make one the best choice for president then I should be in the running for I have visited 22 countries…….does that make me 4 times more qualified than he? It is pathetic to think that anyone who has simply visited other countries is the best person for the job of president…….
Walker is just another clown for the car that is the GOP……..this one statement shows a serious lack of judgement…..and judgement is a prerequisite for the presidency……at least in my mind.
He’s out as a viable candidate.
There could be a alternate explanation for his irresponsible statement…………..Maybe he was trying out material for his new day job……..as a COMEDIAN!
