Scott Walker Dissolves Into Gibberish When Asked About His Foreign Policy Credentials

http://www.politicususa.com/2015/05/17/scott-walker-dissolves-gibberish-asked-foreign-policy-credentials.html

One sentence is all it took for Scott Walker to reveal himself as the next in a long line of failed Republicans.

Face The Nationís Bob Schieffer asked Gov. Walker what his foreign policy credentials are, and the answer was revealing.

Walker said:

Well, I think as a governor, itís really ultimately about leadership. To me, in my lifetime, one of the best presidents when it comes to foreign policy was a governor from California. My lifetime, one of the worst presidents when it comes to foreign policy, was a freshman senator from Illinois. So I think itís not just about past experience. Itís about leadership. As a governor, you have to put a cabinet in place. Hopefully, you pick people who are as smart or smarter than you on any given topic.

I think thatís something thatís required of a successful president is putting people in place, be it Secretary of Defense, National Security Advisor, Secretary of State and others, and then having the good sense to listen to them and to others, chain of command in the military, consulting with the Congress. All of those sorts of things I think are important to the president, and I think a successful governors in either party have to do that every day.

1. Yea, a cabinet of hawks and deregulators. The US can't afford another Republican president.

Actually, the world can't afford another Republican president, they're fucking lethal.

He's from the planet Gibber, you know.

13. Guess the ISIS/Union comparison didn't go over so well, eh?



So, basically, he just wants to appoint a bunch of people and do what they want him to do? No independent thought? No actual decision-making? Why elect him anyway then?

16. gibberish

Everything these people say is gibberish! Their goofy statements always make me think of those essay books in school where they're trying to fill in a bunch of blank pages with words that mean nothing. They are all masters of garbage speak and not one of them EVER answers a question. How people keep voting for them is beyond me.

You consider a foreign policy that exactly meets the constitutional definition of treason to be the best one in your lifetime?

Apparently, the folks in the Republikkkan Klown Kar are all going to campaign by meme.

They need better comedy writers and new material.

24. I am suddenly reminded of W in 2001.

During Clinton's lame duck time. All the Republicans around me (and on the TV) kept parroting about W: "Well he's not got experience in this area, but he's picked all the right people" and more bullshit like that.

So Simple Scotty's going for bonus points.

Invoke Reagan? Check.

Kick Obama in the balls? Check.

Doesn't know what to do, so steal a base from W's playbook? Check.

What a dick.
