Wisconsin, Scott Walker Just Isn't Into You

Nicholas Confessore and Jonathan Martin at the New York Times wrote an excellent piece about the GOP presidential wannabes and their pandering and butt-kissing of the nation's wealthy conservative cash cows.

In said article, they discuss Walker's galavanting around the country from one fundraiser to another, from one ass-kissing session to another. Walker's attitude towards his current job as governor of Wisconsin was rather nonchalant and full of hubris:

The season of donor events poses hurdles both logistical and ideological: Mr. Bush, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas all sought to attend both the Palm Beach gathering and the overlapping Conservative Political Action Conference, held just outside Washington. Mr. Walker’s appearances at donor conclaves will take him back and forth across the country several times between late January and early March.

In an interview, Mr. Walker said he was unconcerned about the appearance of spending so much time and energy courting donors, noting that he expected to do plenty of retail campaigning in the months ahead.

“Oh, I think along the way I’ll be at plenty of dairy events and farm events and factories just like when I was governor,” Mr. Walker said.

Now, I recognize that all politicians tend to have a massive ego, but Walker has himself convinced that he is already president and is talking about his present job in the past tense.

While some people might think that Walker started running for president when he was reelected at the end of last year. The truth is he started his run the second he want in 2010. Sadly, the good people in Wisconsin will be paying for his hubris and his campaign for decades to come.
