Asked by Webb if he is "comfortable with the idea of evolution," Walker responded "For me, I'm going to punt on that one as well."Seriously?
"It's just one of those that I'm here to talk about trade, not to pontificate on other issues," he added. "I love the evolution of trade in Wisconsin. It's going well and I'd like to see an even bigger evolution."
Later Wednesday, Walker issued a written statement clarifying those remarks.
"Both science and my faith dictate my belief that we are created by God," he said in an written statement, which he also later tweeted. "I believe faith and science are compatible, and go hand in hand."
A week after Chris Christie’s disastrous trip to London, Walker was desperate to avoid the kind of slip that cost the New Jersey governor any positive headlines back home.
“I’d rather be bland than stupid or moronic,” he said.
Sadly, he may have been all three.
He was attempting to bolster his foreign policy credentials by saying nothing at all, and during a question and answer session at a foreign policy think tank he refused to be drawn on whether he believed in evolution.
“I’m going to punt on that one as well,” he said, which was met by harrumphs in the audience at a foreign policy think tank. It was suggested that pretty much any politician on earth could manage to answer that one. Walker changed tack, but only slightly: “I like the evolution of trade in Wisconsin.”Oooo we got him now!
He's right, these questions are stupid but leave to the lefty press to frame it as "tripping up" or "stumbling." No, he just simply doesn't want to play your tired games. Every cycle with this same old crap from the left. GOP is a bunch of religious zealots that are backwards idiots who don't know anything about science. It's like they are from the dark ages.
Hey can we talk about how your side is leading the crusade against vaccines based on garbage research? How about the electric cars that cause more pollution thanks to the coal plants that work overtime? Fraking is dangerous even though it really it isn't.
But those backward religious types in the middle east who cut off heads and set people on fire? They are misunderstood.
You lefties are so stupid sometimes, it actually causes my brain to come dripping out my nostrils.
What the hell is the point of those questions? What policy are we going to make based on whether or not he believes in evolution? Christ I can't think of a more irrelevant question today with all our problems. Hey media, you want to show you actually got some balls? Ask a muslim why he believes in this 12th imam stuff. How about asking a liberal politician why he hates Israel? Ask a democrat why he thinks it's ok for people who got here illegally why they should get some special treatment over those who jumped through all the hoops?
Media is full of pedantic twerps. I know you know this, but I just like to say it.
