Can't Help Myself

I've been trying not to pay much attention to the GOP hopefuls. Let me pause to say to The Donald and The Sarah: Run! For the love of God, go for it. OK. Now then. Scott Walker is turning out to not be so much ready for primetime. It is, of course, still the fault of the liberal media.

"I want a commander-in-chief who will do everything in their power to ensure that the threat from radical Islamic terrorists do not wash up on American soil. We will have someone who leads and ultimately will send a message not only that we will protect American soil but do not take this upon freedom-loving people anywhere else in the world," Walker said. "We need a leader with that kind of confidence. If I can take on a 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world."

Following the remarks, the National Review's Jim Geraghty wrote that he took no pleasure in defending the union protesters, but that Walker gave a "terrible response" to the Islamic State question. A spokeswoman for Walker's political committee later sent Geraghty a statement downplaying the governor's mention of the protesters.

"Governor Walker believes our fight against ISIS is one of the most important issues our country face," the statement to Geraghty from Walker spokeswoman Kristen Kukowski said. "He was in no way comparing any American citizen to ISIS. What the governor was saying was when faced with adversity he chooses strength and leadership. Those are the qualities we need to fix the leadership void this White House has created."

It's good that he doesn't feel his fellow Wisconsinites are on par with the group IS. Well, he cleared another hurdle. So to speak.

Added: I'm thinking maybe Walker should not have run for president. I can't help but think he's hurting his brand down the road. Not to mention the Republican brand.
