Walker doesn't know when to quit

Published Sept. 15, 2015

A couple of months ago, I wrote in these pages that (alleged) Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker does not tell the truth, and he does not answer questions. I would like to add a third thing to that list: Scott Walker does not know when to quit. And I'm not just talking about quitting the race for the Republican presidential nomination. When it comes to dodging questions and attacking Obama on police violence issues, he just doesn't know when to quit.

Published Sept. 1, 2015

My fear today, as I write this, is that 2016 is looking more like 2004 than like 2008. It's not just the coincidence of another crazy white guy from Vermont running in the Democratic primary.

Which is just not true.

Published March 10, 2015

The right to work law, like Act 10, doesn't hold up to the scrutiny conservatives would apply were it a Democratic bill. Health-care reform was a major campaign item, something promised by Obama. Walker denied interest in right to work and called it a distraction, and it was never a statewide issue during the 2014 election.


President Scott Walker? Get used to it

Published Nov. 24, 2014

Can Scott Walker be president someday? Sure. The world has become a really scary place. In times like that - think ISIS, think Ebola, think the still sputtering economy - people want a leader of certainty. They want someone strong and resolute.
