You can tell a man’s character is known by the kind of company he keeps.
In a recent fundraising email, Scott Walker sent out:
Millions of Americans tune in to hear Rush Limbaugh every week. When he talks, conservatives listen and liberals shudder. He has single handedly revolutionized conservative talk radio and recently he gave us an extraordinary compliment that I want to share with you.
He asked why our political rivals and their friends in the liberal media didn't defeat me in the recall race in 2012 and he said it was because "the reality is he is a hugely successful governor. He has fixed a lot of things that were broken in that state."
In a nutshell, Rush is advancing the argument that the reason the Big Government Labor Bosses and the Obama Machine were unable to beat me is because of our results.
Nothing like touting a compliment from the imbecilic hate monger himself. In case you have not heard him for a while, today Rush said:
But wait, there's more:
“If there is Ebola in the world, it might as well be here so Obama can strut his stuff.”
"f you feed them, if you feed the children, three square meals a day during the school year, how can you expect them to feed themselves in the summer? Wanton little waifs and serfs dependent on the State. Pure and simple." -Rush Limbaugh, December, 2011
"[Obama] wouldn't have been voted president if he weren't black. Somebody asked me over the weekend why does somebody earn a lot of money have a lot of money, because she's black. It was Oprah. No, it can't be. Yes, it is. There’s a lot of guilt out there, show we're not racists, we'll make this person wealthy and big and famous and so forth.... If Obama weren't black he'd be a tour guide in Honolulu or he'd be teaching Saul Alinsky constitutional law or lecturing on it in Chicago." --Rush Limbaugh, July 6, 2010
"Holocaust 90 million Indians? Only four million left? They all have casinos, what's to complain about?" --Rush Limbaugh in 2009
Yes that is the guy who Scott Walker is proud to call friend and supporter!
By the way what does Scott Walker have to say about that?
Asked how voters might judge governors who bid for the presidency, the Wisconsinite replied, “Governors should be defined not just by what they do and say, but who they surround themselves with, making sure to have the smartest person for a particular task or to head a specific agency. They should be judged on that basis and who they take advice from.”
