"Normal Guy" and "Public Servant" Scott Walker said "in my mind" he's no Career Politician!!!

Let's be honest, when you look at Scott Walker now, isn't it a lot harder to understand how anyone could trust this guy? 

Let's take a look at his recent word salad claim that he's a "public servant," not a career politician that Wisegeekdotcom defines this way: 
"political figures who have no significant professional experience outside of the political arena … who has worked in politics for a period significantly greater than that spent working in an outside field." 
In John Harwood's interview, Scott Walker spewed another Humpty Dumptyism when he said:
"A career politician, in my mind, is somebody who's been in Congress for 25 years."
"In my mind?" Outrageous yes, but it might be the only honest thing he's said recently.

The idea that Walker "serves" anyone is laughable, especially after hearing him go on and on about being a big bold leader. In reality, he would be getting things done for a mere 25% of Americans (even a smaller percentage if you just count conservative voters). He's gotten things done because he has a compliant right wing one party system in Wisconsin. If you're not a Republican, then you don't count in Walker's new world order.

Walker isn't shy about his "divide and conquer" platform either, which again, never throws up a few red flags for the news media:
Harwood: "When you talk about fighting and winning, sometimes when I hear that, it sounds to me like the emphasis is on the fighting, almost like you're running to be the hockey team enforcer."

Walker: "Well I think right now people do want to fight in America."
And yet Walker been in office since 1992, amounting to 23 years on the pubic dole. And after all this time, working across party lines is not Walker's style:
Walker: "I think people want a fighter who can win, get the results. I fought, I won, I got results, and I did it without violating my conservative principles."
In the video clip, Walker also claims to be just "a normal guy. I'm a guy from...you know...that's got a wife and two kids..!" That sound pretty much like "normal guy" President Obama, who Republicans never considered "normal guy" enough to hold office. Guess he should have gotten a Harley like Scottie. Due to copyright issues over the video content, I've put together this slide show:

When you're as bad at campaigns as Scott Walker, you should just give up

"Scott Walker’s presidential campaign is only a little over 50 days old, and it’s increasingly obvious that Scott Walker sucks. Not for his record or what he believes, although both of those are – to borrow a phrase from William Safire – extremely sucky. But Scott Walker is not good at this campaign thing.

A good campaign introduces a candidate and his best ideas to sympathetic and like-minded voters through a combination of events, press coverage and paid outreach, allowing him or her to attract campaign donations and new supporters alike. A bad campaign forces a candidate to get on the phone to reassure his existing donors that he exists and is going to abandon the “sinking into obscurity” tactic that hadn’t been working. A truly terrible campaign is at hand when the most widely-reported news story is the candidate’s old claim that his bald spot totally isn’t genetic but comes from banging his head against the underside of a cabinet.

It is amazing that Walker has any supporters. He is literally stupid, makes constant gaffes, looks like a nerd (never polished like Romney or Ryan), is very homely looking and wimpy. He eats like a pig and puts it all over the web, while his wife (diabetic) has to be tortured by his fatty food obsession. His looks like the SNL Church Lady. His Dad is a mess. His parents cannot afford their own house so they live in Walker's house. Walker's personal finances are underwater. His "reforms" don't work and he cannot tell the truth. There is nothing appealing about this man!! Why do people think this misfit is good for America??
