The liberal press just doesn’t get it. They keep talking about Hillary and Jeb Bush and, oh yea, that guy Walker. In a piece in the National Journal last week, the magazine laid out the liberal spin that Walker can’t compete against Hillary Clinton due to his so-called “lurch to the right on social issues.”
I don’t remember Governor Walker doing any lurching in the last few weeks as National Journal states. What I do remember is Walker refusing to be drawn into the traps the mainstream media keeps trying to set for him.
The National Journal states:
The vast contrasts among candidates and appeal show that the GOP is still trying to decide whether to nominate a no-compromises conservative or a more moderate contender who can compete against potential Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Do you see the sly narrative they are trying to give justification to in that sentence? “A real conservative can’t possibly compete against the mighty intellectual Clinton, so the GOP must nominate another moderate!” (“So we can beat the pants off them,” they are thinking, as they hope the Republicans make the same mistake they have in the last few presidential cycles.)

What the liberal media does not get is that, barring some huge mistakes or revelations about ties to the Soviet Communist Party or multiple love children stashed around the country, Scott Walker is a freight train on his way to the nomination and then the presidency. Jeb Bush and Hillary are so yesterday and both have substantial baggage. They are not what the country is yearning for. What America wants is a man who can lay out a conservative vision of governance and then do what he says.
In another poll last week, Governor Walker is shown to be the most competitive candidate among informed voters against Hillary Clinton by a long shot. Talking Points Memo reports:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is the most competitive in a head-to-head matchup against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to a new McCatchy-Marist Poll released on Friday. The poll found against Walker, Clinton leads 48 percent to 44 percent. By comparison, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), who like Walker and Clinton, has shown strong interest in running for president, trails the former secretary of state 49 percent to 41 percent, a shift from December when Clinton led Bush 53 percent to 40 percent.
Walker is the real deal and he is only just getting started. As time goes by, expect the realization to dawn on the liberal press that he will become president. It’s going to be fun to watch.
