[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.”

    How would he have answered if asked about gravity? Can you imagine as president a person who doesn’t laugh at the idea of even being asked about evolution? I wonder how long it took the reporter to recover from his laughing fit after Walker left.

    Certainly if the subject of Abortion is above Harvard Graduate Obama’s Pay Grade then the subject of Evolution is far above College dropout Scott Walker’s pay grade.

      The difference is, abortion can be debated. Evolution cannot be.

    it makes sense – evolution suggests change and improvement – but these aholes seem to have been bipassed by the improvement part.
