Scott Walker, God's Gift to the Democratic Party

Walker's ISIS comments might help him in the short term, but in the end his Party will suffer

Beltway Democrats may not deserve good luck, but it looks like they could have plenty in the next presidential race. Heading into the weekend, Scott Walker, a man born to be slaughtered in a general election, is suddenly leading the Republican pack in the Iowa polls.

Walker is surging thanks to his performance at this week's Conservative Political Action Conference, where the union-busting governor inspired raucous applause with his "I was a dick in Wisconsin, and I can be one in Washington, too!" stump speech.

Walker's address was a broadside against a litany of conservative bugbears, from Planned Parenthood to the media to tax day to the subversive act of voting without a photo ID, etc.

But the money line came during a Q&A session. Asked how he would take on radical Islamist terrorists, Walker referred to his experience taking on pro-union protesters in his home state:

If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world.

More propaganda from liberals. They will twist any remark and then have the liberal media exploit it even further.

I agree with the premise of the article, although the Isis comment is not why he will be a gift. You cannot nominate someone that will have to spend time and money in his own state to win. He will have to campaign in Wisconsin. He will have to spend ad money in Wisconsin. If Gore had won Tennessee in 2000 Florida was irrelevant. Didn't we learn in the last election when Romney lost both Michigan and Massachusetts? Oh and they also lost his running mates home state... Wait for it... Oh yeah.. Wisconsin..

Walker is a proven winner.

Double ditto that. Hopefully, he's Obama's successor -- the change is badly needed.

There must be something good about this guy if the press is already attacking him.

Agreed 7:53, the media immediately starts attacking anyone they find a threat. Notice how Bush just seems to be a wonderful candidate (to them).
