Once again Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has decided not to have an opinion on an issue rather than telling us what he really thinks, if indeed he is capable of thinking at all.
Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, the candidate for the 2016 GOP nomination was asked by Dana Bash if he thought being gay was a choice or if people are born homosexual. Specifically, Bash was referring to comments Walker made Tuesday in which he said he agreed with there being a ban on gay Boy Scout leaders because it:
“Protected children and advanced Scout values.”
Then on Wednesday, Governor Walker partially walked back his comments and stated he thought the policy protected children from engaging in any political debate over gay rights.
But when confronted earlier today and asked if he thought homosexuality was a choice or a way a person is born, Walker fumbled around and rambled for a few seconds before finally declaring he doesn’t:
“Have an opinion on every single issue out there.”
Then why in the hell are you running for President, Governor?! The President is supposed to have an opinion on every issue because, sooner or later, in one form or another, every issue winds up crossing his desk!
Here’s how it went during the interview: Bash asked:
“Do you think that being gay is a choice?”
Walker managed to blurt out:
“Oh, I mean I think — that’s not even an issue for me to be involved in. The bottom line is, I’m going to stand up and work hard for every American regardless of who they are, no matter where they come from, no matter what their background. I’m going to fight for people whether they vote for me or not.”
All who believe that, please stand on your head and sing the “Star Spangled Banner” 100 times.
Bash tried once more, asking:
“On behalf of people to do that properly you have to understand or at least have an opinion on who they are and where they’re coming from.”
And Walker managed to make the situation worse with this malarkey:
“But again, I think — no, I don’t have an opinion on every single issue out there. I mean to me that’s — I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that question. So, I’m saying I don’t know what the answer to that is. And I’m going to spend my time focused on things that I do know and I can work on.”
Shortly after he made his formal announcement for President, I wrote that Scott Walker would never make it to the White House, and I even listed several reasons I thought so. You can now add his answers in this interview to the list. I don’t care how much Koch money he has behind him, Scott Walker is not ready for prime time.
