Just what this country needs: another Republican who cannot correctly pronounce nuclear. Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker, enemy of unions, women, education and the poor, thinks he has enough knowledge about this world to be the Commander in Chief. Scott Brown asks, “It seems like our foreign policy’s actually upside down, what would you do differently that…

    By the tone of this article it appears these two are lying to their base. Could that be possible?

      OMG! no, you must be wrong. They wouldn’t lie to us, would they? I’m crushed.

    If he can’t pronounce nuclear, how is he going to say “Netanyahu”

      He’ll just say BiBi….spelling it would still be a problem however.

      Jimmy Carter couldn’t pronounce “nuclear” correctly. He had no trouble pronouncing Menachem Begin or Anwar Sadat when he brokered the Camp David accords. Obama mispronounced Corpsmen as “corpse-men”. Big deal.

    Some people might worry that Walker can pull it off, and win the presidency. After all, an ignorant doofus with a mean streak managed to somehow get “elected” in 2000.

    But I’m not worried. A lot has changed since 2000. Demographics favor Democrats, and the “blue wall” is more solid than ever. Shrub benefited from the fond memory some had of his father, and a significant number of voters in 2000 actually believed that they were voting for Bush 41.

    Walker has none of these advantages. It will be easy to paint him as the return of Dubya: a nasty ignoramus who is out of his depth.

    His views on Trading Places are interesting to say the least. I thought it was about insider trading and a wrongdoer being sodomized by a gorilla on a fast moving train. Walker should ask Sen. Al Franken about the movie, I’m sure he would be the perfect person to explain things to him.

      I don’t think he’s ever seen the movie, he was just using the title. His comment had nothing to do with the movie.

        You are correct sir, the only thing Walker got right was the decade and he might’ve had assistance with that.

    I’m glad Brown and Walker were in separate rooms. That could have gotten embarrassing.

    Walker’s an idiot. Oh, and a clown. There’s just no easy or diplomatic way to say it. And I agree about the pronunciation–if they can’t say it correctly, they don’t get to have their fingers anywhere near the button.

    • Larry Schmitt March 23rd, 2015 at 6:56 pm

      Oh, there’s an easy way to say it, you just did it. And don’t misunderestimate the power of an idiot to get to the White House. It’s happened before.

        True that. Now Jeb is supposed to be the smart shrub, right?

    I am reminded by a (cartoon) sign I saw at a nuclear weapons facility on a hurricane fence topped with concertina wire: “Those saying ‘nu-cu-lear’ not allowed beyond this point.”
