So another Amnesty Queen, Scott Walker, wants to put his hat In the ring.

I can’t honestly think of a governor I would want as president.

I tend to agree.
However, the devil’s in the details. Not all GOP governors are created equal.

He’s dead right. Governors know how to run stuff and have a track record that goes beyond dining with lobbyists and going on tax-paid junkets.
If you haters ever find a candidate you like that more than 10 people would vote for, let us know.

Yep, I agree with Walker.
Governors make better Presidents. “Better” defined as effective in putting through agendas.
A study of history will show that to be the case; governors are administrators and delegate and direct. In the best cases they are men like Reagan—”big picture” guys who know how to pick reasonable men to carry out their directives.
Not one is perfect, but the Presidency is an executive, administrative job—and a legislator is one of 500, working to “compromise” with the other 499 know-it-alls.
Governors are where we need to look—preferably men who have succeeded within the private sector as well.
That illegal alien lover can go to hell!

The water in Wisc. causes both Ryan and Walker to want to let the ‘rats have their 30 million (who knows what the real # is?) illegals.

Walker and Kripsy are 20% better than their far left Democrat opponents. That is not much good nationwide.
Walker’s opponent said the hate whitey mobs were non racist.
Vitter is a better candidate than Jindal for higher office.
Id like to see Jeff Sessions or Steve King play games with Rand Paul’s hispandering.
Id trust Kasich or Branstad more than any of the other governors.
I agree, and that is why I think those in Congress are the poorest of Presidential candidates.
I would look to proven Governors, conservative CEOs of major corporations, and military leaders.
Members of the House and Senate run their mouths and that is about all they excel in.

I like the governor of Wisconsin with the governor of New Mexico as his running mate.
