Walker Derangement Syndrome

WALKER 2016-3

As it says on the hypochondriac’s tombstone, “I expected this, but not so soon.”

Reporter Mocks Scott Walker For Claiming To Communicate With God Through Prayer

Political Wire publisher Taegan Goddard caught a lot of flak on Twitter after mocking Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for claiming he could discern God’s will, only to admit that he had no idea Christians believed they could communicate with God through prayer.

It all began with a rather snarky tweet about Walker’s comments that he was still waiting for “God’s calling” before he announced a presidential run.

As Goddard received criticism from religious followers, he shot back at critics by claiming that he wasn’t showing disdain for people of faith, even as his tone became more and more sarcastic.


Eventually, Goddard betrayed his ignorance of basic Christian beliefs, when he seemed genuinely confused that Walker believed prayer could be used to communicate with God.

I wonder if they pray to God in Obama’s church?

Seriously, the smoke hadn’t cleared from the attacks on Scott Walker for allegedly questioning Obama’s faith and now they are mocking Walker’s faith? That’s some cray shit.

Meanwhile, over at The New Yorker they believe in objective reporting:

Let’s stipulate up front that Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, is an odious politician whose ascension to the Presidency would be a disaster.

Set aside, for a moment, his repeated refusal, in the past few days, to say whether he believes that President Obama loves America, or whether he believes that the President is a Christian, and look instead at Walker’s record running what used to be one of America’s more progressive states. Having cut taxes for the wealthy and stripped many of Wisconsin’s public-sector unions of their collective-bargaining rights, he is now preparing to sign a legislative bill that would cripple unions in the private sector. Many wealthy conservatives, such as the Koch brothers, who have funnelled a lot of money to groups supporting Walker, regard him as someone who’s turning his state into a showcase for what they want the rest of America to look like.

But just how threatening is he? If you’ve been following the political news during the past week, you may well have the impression that he’s stumbling in his campaign for the 2016 G.O.P. nomination. Among the political commentariat, the consensus of opinion is that Walker’s repeated refusal to distance himself from Rudy Giuliani’s incendiary comments about Obama, and his subsequent encounter with the Washington Post’s Dan Balz and Robert Costa, during which he appeared to question Obama’s religious faith and took some shots at the media for asking him silly questions, weren’t merely reprehensible: they were serious gaffes that raised questions about Walker’s political abilities.

These are some of the headlines from the past 24 hours:

Hi. I’m Scott Walker And I’m Incompetent. Give Me Money.

    True story 😉

  2. votermom says:

    Helen’s insincts seem to be right.
    Train derailment was caused by truck driver Jose Alejandro Sanchez-Ramirez, 54, of Yuma, Arizona.


    NTSB concerned that the Truck that caused derailment was “not stuck”.

    Police refuse to disclose results of his sobriety test.

      Just wondering how their Jewish constituents feel about this snub? It just makes the Dem party look like a bunch of “baby go bye-byes” sheepish little followers of President StompyFoot. I’m not Jewish, but I like Netanyahu and his brave little country and surely I’m not the only one.

      • swanspirit says:

        This entire kerfluffle was manufactured by Obama. He got his nose out of joint because John Boehner out maneuvered him. What is really revealing is how far Obama is willing to go to show his antisemitism, and how willing his Dumbs are to go along. Obama is a nasty vindictive bastage. I hope it backfires on him.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Yep, and I’m so looking forward to Bibi’s speech, which I think Obama fears most of all but he can’t stop it. 😉

        • leslie says:

          I’m with you, swannie.

        • cynic says:

          I saw this on Morning Joe yesterday, and this is the reporting from The Weekly Standard:

          “It’s not unprecedented,” the MSNBC host said of an American president hosting an Israel prime minister during his reelection campaign. “In 1996, the Clinton administration hosted Shimon Peres for a U.S. visit while he was in the midst of an election against Benjamin Netanyahu.”

          “Democratic presidents have always loathed Benjamin Netanyahu,” said the other MSNBC host, Joe Scarborough.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          Obama would have been better off just ignoring the whole thing.

          • swanspirit says:

            Seriously, he would have. He has now made a huge deal out of somethng he could have just brushed off.
            I would have suggested he could handle it with some class, but I don’t want to be laughed off the blog 😉 /SNARK !!

    • Constance says:

      Well here is an idea Dems, Netanyahu will be giving a speech to Congress so go to the speech if you want to hear him. Oh no! they need to be partisan and snub Republicans so they can’t attend. What a bunch of jerks.

    Off to Medicare Wellness Exam – had to fill out 4 page summary which will be scanned into my gubermint records, now need to bring all my drugs so doc can check them out and entered said data on computer. Wonder if she’ll examine me or just type today.
    All right – everyone take care and remember to restock the dungeon with treats and COFFEE.. And the boxes are for kitteh sleepovers not to be used as a coffee table. Thanking you in advance.

    • leslie says:

      First – I went to the doc yesterday and she said that she is convinced the Medicare records are so screwed up that they will help no one. (I think she has at long last become a member of our club.) She sees Medicare as a scam and a way to make doctors struggle to maintain their practices by increasing their paperwork, decreasing their patient-centered work and be reimbursed less and less.
      lastly – Since you are eating all the goodies, and you are the one going outside today, I urge you to bring back some good treats and staples when you return. I ran out of brownie ingredients from the last time and it’s too cold to go out today unless it’s an emergency, so I can’t restock. But I can tell you that I prefer this wonderful Mexican coffee along with a hazelnut cream flavored coffee (NOT syrup) and mixed with a dash of Saigon Cassia cinnamon. I’ll bring it with me the next time I’m in the dungeon to restock.
      Have fun at the MD’s. I hope your doc is better at typing than I. (My doc spent more time talking with me yesterday than typing. She is that angry with Medicare and now the O administration. We’ve got another convert…..)


      • piper says:

        Will restock later today – like the cinnamon addition. The nurse was only one who laid hands on me in terms of blood pressure, pulse (yes I’m still alive), hearing and vision plus last of hep. vaccine and pneumonia. My doctor who is a delightful person spent most of the visit typing on her laptop but then we had a great discussion on the increase in paperwork, gov. regs., lawyer advocates and patient demands (in my case students/parents). She shared how many docs have left their practices and other who have joined insurance companies as claim reviewers however she still prefers patient contact which is good as she is an excellent doctor. She also shared how a few patients who don’t get what they want in terms of more gov.services, drugs and procedures have taken to writing negative reviews.

    Not sure why all the weepies over the Parks and Recreation finale. Never could get into the show, nor could the audience numbers, but lasted this long because of the “fans” ? NBC lost a lot of money on shows like 30 Rock and Community also. Oh well, spoiler, here’s how they ended it….


    • piper says:

      He’s been doing here for a long time – one of the reasons I stopping subscribing / buying our local rag, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
      Received two more calls from AFl-Cio regarding the pending Right To Work State legislation. Still don’t know if they’re calling everyone in the state or just union members – but how would they know about me since I retired from a Minnesota school system.

  12. elliesmom says:

    I hope Walker sticks to his current game plan. If you’re a Republican, you can’t win or even come to a draw with today’s press if you let them set the rules. When he’s confronted with irrelevant questions that are setups, “Ask me a question that matters to the American people” is the right answer to them all. When asked questions about Obama, the right answer is, “If and when I decide to run for president and if I get the Republican nomination, my opponent will be whoever the Democrats nominate, not Mr. Obama. At that point he will be irrelevant in the race.”

    • DeniseVB says:

      All this media bashing sure isn’t making me say “Walker’s an asshole, I’m going to vote for whoever the Dems are running…. Ready for Hillary! Elizabeth Warren Rocks My World because she doesn’t like Wall Street!! Twinkles Up !!!!!”

      Nope not at all.

      I don’t know how you ever found her. Maybe when I retire I can find these videos myself, but until then, I’m gonna rely on you, DVB. This woman is lucky she’s young. She’d never survive this kind of self-abuse but for her youth. She’s hysterical.

    Senate Democrats agree to GOP plan for Homeland Security funding without immigration measures – @AP

    • leslie says:

      This morning on Morning Joe, Mika looked and sounded as if she would DIE if a Democrat didn’t appear to rescue her from the horrible, no good, terrible Republican who was talking about the “clean” DHS funding bill. When Joaquin Castro (D-TX 20) spoke, he did not take her “side” on the issue and I think she wanted to get rid of him as quickly as possible. In fact, as he finished speaking, despite her attempts to talk over him, she thanked him and referred to him as “Senator” rather than congressman. A point Joe loudly stated, I think in order to salvage her anxiety driven faux pas.
      The passage of this bill will most likely grate against her Dem sensitivities.

      (I don’t know who was speaking ahead of Castro, I turned the tv on after he had been introduced.)

      • “Mika looked and sounded as if she would DIE…”

        No Chit! Better still was her complete and total apoplexy about Bibi coming to speak to Congress and how that horrible John Boehner was undermining The One.

        It was EMBARRASSING!

      • cynic says:

        I saw that as well, and I was pleasantly surprised with Joaquin.
