brave bully governor of Wisconsin, destroyer of little old schoolteachers’ pensions and incarcerater of protest singers, appears to be intimidated by the money needed to be competitive in an important electoral college state:
Scott Walker suggested in a radio interview with Laura Ingraham today that he could sit out Florida’s March 15, 2016, Republican presidential primary.
“I don’t think there’s a state out there we wouldn’t play in — other than maybe Florida, where Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are in some of the polls essentially tied and they are going to eat up a good amount of that financial advantage that Gov. Bush is going to have. Remember, Rick Scott spent something like $100 million running for governor there last year.”
That comes from a hopeful who in March implied he was the front-runner.
So the governor who claimed to be Unintimidated by unions and schoolteachers and said he would crush ISIL just like he crushed public and private sector unions in Wisconsin, is worried about spending money in a state that any Republican presidential hopeful will need to win the presidency.
What is he afraid of … losing? Or spending the pile of cash he has been gathering in his 527, dollar signs that must be making his grifter eyes light up when he sees it?
Or maybe he is afraid that once he leaves the rarified air of Iowa, a place that fed his delusions of adequacy, the stark reality is that he can run but he can’t hide from his record in Wisconsin: the anemic job numbers, the 60% disapproval rating he earned by his attacks on the university system, the elderly, women, school children, the poors, the environment, and the Wisconsin way of life?
He certainly looks intimidated to me.
