Huddy is in love with Walker, I am holding by opinion for at least a few months. Let's see how the candidates handle the first few debates. Let's also see who really does run.

As Elizabeth Warren said about this: "If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it's time we take a closer look at his friends."

If Ted Cruz throws in his hat, the debates will be fun to watch.

LOL! The latest Walker words of wisdom:

Quote:
Walker contended that "the most significant foreign policy decision of my lifetime" was then-President Ronald Reagan's move to bust a 1981 strike of air traffic controllers, firing some 11,000 of them.
Scott Walker calls Reagan’s bust of air traffic controller strike ‘most significant foreign policy decision’ - The Washington Post


Does Walker understand what foreign policy means?

Walker's personal security detail gets huge raise, and no one else.

Quote:
More than 300 unionized state troopers get a pay raise, ten Wisconsin State Patrol supervisors got a $4 per hour raise this week and they all have one thing in common - they serve on Governor Scott Walker's (R-Wisconsin) personal security detail.

Why hasn't the bold union busting Walker busted the Union of the state troopers?

Three hundred state troopers on his security detail? That seems waaaaaay over the top. Even here in New York the number of state troopers assigned to the governor's security detail does not exceed 200 .... and they are also responsible for the State Capitol in addition to guarding the governor's residence, his NYC office, and close protection duties. Oh and they also provide security details for the State Senate President, the State Assembly Speaker, and the State Attorney General as well.

Even George Pataki, known for his absurdly large security detail, did not have 300 troopers assigned to the unit.

No way, it's impossible that 300 troopers protect the governor when the entire Wisconsin State Patrol only has just over 700 troopers in total. No way.

No.
Quote:
Collective Bargaining: The bill would make various changes to limit collective bargaining for most public employees to wages. Total wage increases could not exceed a cap based on the consumer price index (CPI) unless approved by referendum. Contracts would be limited to one year and wages would be frozen until the new contract is settled. Collective bargaining units are required to take annual votes to maintain certification as a union. Employers would be prohibited from collecting union dues and members of collective bargaining units would not be required to pay dues. These changes take effect upon the expiration of existing contracts.
Local law enforcement and fire employees, and state troopers and inspectors would be exempt from these changes.
2011 Wisconsin Act 10 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also, I found nothing about hazardous pay, unless you consider being around Walker as hazardous to one's health.

The only wackos are those in Walker's head.

No death threats were ever made against Walker. He made that up because Walker thinks being a drama queen will win him support.
