On President's Day, he gets stuck in the sediment of Abraham Lincoln.
Walker managed to make Christmas a train wreck.
About the only thing he hasn't done - yet - is celebrate Channukah with some hot ham and rolls.
Independence Day fares no better with Walker's ineptitude.
An example of this is the email blast that came from his gubernatorial/presidential campaign:
Freedom.Notice that first line, something about "endowed by our Creator?"
Endowed by our Creator. Defined by the Declaration of Independence some 237 years ago. And protected each and every day by the men and women who proudly wear the uniform of these United States of America.
Please take time on the 4th of July to thank the service members and veterans in your community. Thank them for the freedom we enjoy today
On behalf of our family, please have a safe and fun Independence Day!
Now, with a thank you to blue cheddar, look at this quote from John Adams:
And there was the infamous line from Walker a few months ago, which he is trying really hard to make into a soundbite:
It's why we celebrate the 4th of July and not April 15th. In our country, we celebrate true independence because more freedom and more prosperity are what drive the American Dream.As one of our commenters on Jeff's post this morning pointed out, the Declaration of Independence isn't about freedom from government, but the freedom to form our own government. And the way that Walker has "reformed" government is pretty much against everything the founding fathers had intended.
I'm not the only one to notice this either. Chris Walker (no relation) of Political Heat has also noted that Walker is having a problem treating the holiday with the proper respect.
And last, but not least, is this video from Lipstick Liberal. It's from last year and so it's a little dated, but it's still pretty dead on and funny:
