“Well the one thing they’re not saying (he's speaking of the other GOP candidates) is we need to make sure as part of that any future legal immigration system that goes forward has to account for American citizens and the workers of this country and their wages to make sure that even with legal immigration in this country we respond to it in a way that doesn’t take jobs away from hardworking Americans,” Walker added, separating himself from the rest of the 2016 field."

Now how do the Dems criticize that? Strategically, it's a good one. The Dems are out there pounding rocks for higher wages, blind-eyed border crossing and more H1-B visas and Walker ties them together and says jobs and higher wages for citizens come first.

Maybe Walker should campaign in the tech industry where they are losing jobs to legal immigrants.

Then the article, also very good, points out the big lib Democrats, who used to say the same thing as Walker, did a 180 and are now whistling a different tune.

The article is also very critical of Rubio's Gang of Eight bill.

Point is, how do the Democrats out on the campaign trail tell their constituents that immigrants come before they do in the Democrat issues of higher wages, jobs and immigration?

Undoubtedly. The Democratic fear is palpable. It reminds me of the sheer and unabashed terror they felt for Rick Perry four years ago.

Of was it Herman Cain that had Democrats wetting their pants last time around?

Default Nonsense

Yes, the rhetoric never matches the actions. "Don't want to take jobs from hard-working Americans", while continuing to support the good old boys clubs, racism against blacks and Hispanics, inequality, rich-only supporting policies. Walker is a repulsive candidate, a college cheat and dropout. He doesn't even deserve a seat at the table.

Quit deluding yourself, for God's sake.

You haven't answered the question and all the silly icons don't make it better. Democrats flip flopped on this issue as a group once they realized that their shot at holding power was flooding the country with immigrants. They once supported limiting immigration in favor of American citizens but not anymore. How do the Democrats out on the campaign trail tell their constituents that immigrants come before they do these days?

Republicans: the type of candidate that scares Democrats is a moderate ala Jeb Bush. Or someone of a similar ideological bent but without the familial baggage -- e.g., John Kasich. Scott Walker isn't particularly good on the stump, and he looks poised to lose his home state. But bring on the Cruzes and Carsons: a '64-style blowout would suit us just fine.

His "home state?"

Huh.

Guess he ran from MA with his tail between his legs.

Walker flip-flops so often on immigration, we have to check the calender before we can figure out where he stands on the topic.

We do know that Walker backs visas paid for with lots of cash.

At least, Walker is telling it like it is. When you contrast delusion (liberalism) with common sense (conservatism), you stand a good chance of winning.

That is the thing. Walker doesn't say what he will do nor does Walker do what he says he will.

During his campaign all he promised was 250,000 jobs to WI. He did not fulfill that promise. http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/...0000-new-jobs/

Walker never said he would bust unions, either public or private, when he campaigned and yet that is what he has done. http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/...mpaigned-his-/ He pits the struggling middle class against each other http://www.wisconsingazette.com/wisc...tom-fifth.html while he caters to the wealthy.

Quote:
While the state braces for the impact of such a massive budget crisis, Scott Walker’s attention is elsewhere.

Despite telling Wisconsin voters that if reelected he planned to serve the full four years of his term, Walker immediately began laying the groundwork for a presidential campaign days after the midterm election.
What Scott Walker does next

Believe me, what Walker says means nothing. He will say anything to anyone to get elected.
