I don't guess this should surprise anyone. C'mon Scott, have the balls to tell us what your ideas really are.

Love it. He handled it perfectly.

"The GOP has no official position" should be the stock answer on any and all questions of this type. Keep the conversation steered to involve the most pressing of issues only.

Bravo!

Wow.

So, Scott Walker? The theory is that the world is round? Do you have any problem accepting that theory?

Er, ah... I'd rather not discuss that. This isn't the time. But, er, ah, when I am President, I will dismantle the United States Navy so our ships, the big ones, the air craft carriers and such as that... stop falling off the side of the Earth. That will be one of my first initiatives.

See... because I'm really smart and stuff. That's why I left Marquette early... I was already smart. Didn't need to finish college. Just wanted to be President... and such as that.

I'd only expect you to respond in this way. Walker has no guts for not answering a basic question. What is it that he is hiding? Is he afraid his beliefs will turn of the fringe base or turn off a much broader population that he needs to appeal to should he decide to run for POTUS?

Alloak, for the record, do you deny evolution?

He denies intelligence. If he doesn't have something, it doesn't exist.

First of all, a politician dodging a question is headline worthy? Really?

But Walker is right....100%. That's a question politicians shouldn't be involved with one way or another. If they were really interested they would go ask a professor or a scientist.

In the coming months every effort will be made to drag GOP candidates into this crap. Don't go. They want red meat. Don't give it to them. Don't let the conversation be steered away from the pressing issues. Walker didn't let it and others should take note.

"The GOP has no official position on ____________."

Next......

Well, I guess we can probably figure where Walker stands on issues that don't matter like climate change, the environment, a woman's right to choose, gay marriage, etc.

I'll ask again since you didn't answer the first time, alloak. Where do you stand on evolution? Add to that, where do you stand on the above additional issues? Are you going to play like a good little GOP politician and say, "alloak has no official position on ____________."

The GOP has no official position on long settled science? You think a person who dismisses settled science deserves to be elected President.

You truly do miss the point on this one alloak. To the rest of the world Scott Walker, right now, today, looks like a buffoon.

The President of the United States should have a basic knowledge of Science. Walker obviously doesn't. Next.

Do you think Dr. Ben Carson would have refused to answer the question? What is the harm in answering a basic question?

That will be the Democrat approach used to attack candidate Walker, that he didn't complete college. This will be tied to his cuts in education funding and he will be accused of believing that education is not important.

Bank on it.

You just made a great case for him not believing education is important. You think at this juncture of the evolution of society we cut education funding?

What kind of jobs do you see an uneducated future generation performing?

See, you're already proving me right.

BTW I don't have a pilots license, but think air travel is very important. You sure see some crazy leaps and warped logic on this here site.

nice taking it out of context. Again.

This is th entire post You just made a great case for him not believing education is important. You think at this juncture of the evolution of society we cut education funding?

Based on the entire post, your reply was a non sequiter.

Not at all, even though it's puzzling why so many veer into the subject of alloak41. Happens an awful lot.

And just when I thought you guys wanted me to answer more of your questions. That's all I was doing and you're still not happy.

You make it about yourself with your stupid answers, topic swerves when it suits you, your complaints when people change the subject, your snarky remarks, and general troll activity. Actually, I believe you cannot help yourself as you don't seem to be the sharpest knife in the drawer. Actually, as far as knives in the drawer, you are a spork.

I specifically asked you your personal viewpoint on several issues in this thread. You've answered none. It takes a lot of gall for you to imply in your last 2 sentences that you've answered questions....priceless but predictable.

Two of you're questions should be asked directly of Scott Walker. Not trying to be a wise guy, but only Scott would know the answer to those.

On the third question, I don't have a firm stand on evolution either way. It seems plausible on one hand, on the other it's not supported by the fossil record. Put me down as undecided. Could go either way IMO.

Thank you for your patience, dear brother.

He was asking you the questions Alloak. Scott Walker isn't here to answer. But you are taking part in this debate and your views on climate change, the environment, a woman's right to choose and gay marriage are relevant to the whipping post. That's what we do. This could just be an agree to disagree situation.

For example, your idea that the fossil record does not support the theory of evolution is ludicrous. Did you mistype that sentence?

If not, where did you learn this aberration of science?

Billy has a good point. You seem like one of the more logical conservatives Alloak so I hope you are trolling here regarding evolution.

Walker also alluded to the expectation back in the United States that he would run for president, noting the media had described him as "bland" as a prospective candidate. "I'd rather be bland than stupid, or ignorant, or moronic," he said.

Epic fail. He comes off as all 4.

It is funny attacking Scott Walker. Let me see he won 3 recent elections in a democratic state with all the money in the world from unions across the country against him. He is someone who is took on government unions and won 3 times. He is someone outside the academic elite and considering the complete failure of this administration which is dominated by the academic elite, is refreshing. So he is successful with a college degree. Wow that is real negative. I guess it threatens people like Elizabeth Warren who earned 350k a year for teaching one class. And the same people who say he is dodging questions support Hillary, she has been real straightforward. By the way Obama until this day has not released his college transcripts. why is that? This is so typical of the left, attack anyone who you perceive as a threat. But that's right the democrats are for the little people, they are looking out for you.
