Scott Walker Dodges On Evolution
[su_right_ad]Maybe the would-be presidential candidate thinks it’s okay if you say it in England.
Speaking at the Chatham House foreign policy think tank London, Walker was asked: “Are you comfortable with the idea of evolution? Do you believe in it?”
“For me, I am going to punt on that one as well,” he said. “That’s a question politicians shouldn’t be involved in one way or another. I am going to leave that up to you. I’m here to talk about trade, not to pontificate about evolution.”…
Walker isn’t the only would-be White House hopeful to dodge the issue. Last year, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) declined three times to answer the same question. “The reality is I’m not an evolutionary biologist,” he explained.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), who has also made moves toward a 2016 run, danced around the matter while on the presidential trail in 2011, calling evolution as “a theory that’s out there” and one that’s “got some gaps in it.” When broached with the subject in May 2011, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) told reporters “that’s none of your business.”
