While the spineless Scott Walker couldn't even make himself admit that President Barack Obama might - just might - love America, he did have a lot to say at a fundraiser in New York. But as is the norm for Walker, it was crazy talk.

From Larry Kudlow at National Review:

Noteworthy, Walker argued that when Reagan fired the PATCO air-traffic controllers over their illegal strike, he was sending a message of toughness to Democrats and unions at home as well as our Soviet enemies abroad. Similarly, Walker believes his stance against unions in Wisconsin would be a signal of toughness to Islamic jihadists and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Walker loves using this bit of fan fiction about Reagan, even though PolitiFact gave him flaming pantaloons for it.

Who needs to worry about Putin invading America or terrorists attacking us when Walker has already destroyed everything of value?

Then again, if Putin or Islamic terrorists even knew who Walker is, he might be able to incapacitate them my making them laugh themselves to death.

But as with all things Walker, there's more. There's always more.

Walker went on to criticize Mitt Romney for being negative on the economy:

He stressed the need for a positive Republican message in 2016, and bluntly criticized Mitt Romney for spending too much time on the pessimistic economic negatives emanating from Obama’s policy failures.

Touting his positive economic message might be problematic for Walker. Walker has boldly kicked the can so far down the road that he can't even make payments on the state's debts.
It's becoming clearer that Walker's campaign strategy is "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit."
