Does Walker Even Know Where He Stands On Immigration Anymore?

At the beginning of March, Scott Walker boldly flip-flopped on his stance towards immigration:
Walker: "I believe there's a way that you can do that. First and foremost, you've got to secure that border or none of these plans make any sense."

Wallace: "But it's a little bit slippery here. Back when you were the Milwaukee County Executive, you actually supported the Kennedy-McCain comprehensive immigration plan. Are you basically saying that as part of a comprehensive plan — tough enforcement, E-Verify — the 11 million people already here pay penalty, they get citizenship?"

Walker: No, I'm not talking about amnesty. And the reason for that is, over time —

Wallace: "But you said you supported it."

Walker: "And my view has changed. I'm flat-out saying it. Candidates can say that. Sometimes they don't. I'm saying my view has —

Wallace: "So you've changed from 2013?"

Walker: "Absolutely. I look at the problems we've experienced for the last few years. I've talked to governors on the border and others out there. I've talked to people all across America. And the concern I have is that we need to secure the border. We ultimately need to put in place a legal immigration system that works, and part of doing that is putting the onus on employers. Give them E-Verify and the tools to do that, but I don't think you do it through amnesty."
It now appears that he has done yet another flip-flop on the issue:
Just one day before Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is set to tour the Texas-Mexico border with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, the Wall Street Journal's Reid Epstein reports the governor indicated yet another shift in his immigration stance.


According to Epstein's report, Walker told New Hampshire Republicans at a private dinner that he would support allowing undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States and eventually become eligible for citizenship.

The article cites "three people present" at the dinner as confirmation of the governor's remarks.
Walker's inconsistency and complete turnarounds - depending on who he is talking to and what day of the week it is - is quickly becoming a sore spot with many conservatives who are questioning if they can trust Walker on any issue.

Walker's campaign spokeswoman, of course, denies the account and says that he has switched his position any more times than he has already switched it.

By now, I don't know that anyone can tell if it is true or not. Hell, I'm not even sure that Walker even knows where he stands on the issue anymore.


  1. Walker was for Education before he was against it.

  2. Conservatives are starting to figure out that Walker cannot be trusted. The American Thinker had a great article on how unpredictable Walker can be. Tea Party Republicans are getting a dose of reality and they will not be forgiving. Walker can cry foul all he wants, make up bogus threats and hunting accidents to get sympathy, but teabaggers won't have any of it once they declare him not trustworthy. The WI folks who voted for him will get the first real glimpse of what a pandering Grifter Scott Walker really is. After the O'Donnell park accident that killed a 15 year old in front of his mother and Walker decided to politicize it, I have been waiting for his public come to Jesus moment. Scott Walker needs to be shaken to his rotten core. He soon will be a King without a Kingdom.

  3. Timmy Russell and Brian Pierick think Scott Walker looks GREAT in those pink flip-flops!

  4. Did you ever notice Scott Walker's consistency in his visually disingenuous head nods? Or how he slurs his words? How will that play in international diplomacy when leaders of other countries can't understand him because he is incapable of enunciation? Or don't take to his head nods and smirks, and declare that Walker can't be trusted anymore than the leader of ISIS? Walker is out of his league. Intelligent foreign leaders are going to EAT him alive. Putin will destroy him. In true Walker fashion, he will meet with Putin, tell a bunch of lies, come back home and talk tough, cower behind security and piss Putin off. Walker is the kind of idiot to make Putin go crazy. Mark my words. Damn Scott Walker's parents for raising a monster.

    1. Walker is doped up -- plain and simple -- if you have ever been in the same room and looked into his dead eyes, you would recognize that he is an addict.

  5. Anon@8:51, I seriously wonder what His parents actually think? Are They that far out there too? Makes me wonder just what kind of a preacher His Dad actually was.

    1. He was a preacher/bookkeeper that helped business fudge the numbers and cheat on taxes. Thinks about this -- a Christian that will manipulate financial books and statements?

      Its an oxymoron. Didn't Jesus throw a fit when he saw the money changers? That is essentially what Scotty's dad did.

  6. "Candidates can say that."

    Oh? I thought he hadn't declared his candidacy, yet. Isn't he travelling the country and the world to promote business development in the state of Wisconsin?

    Huh. If Walker is admittinng he is a candidate, then the lying grifter owes the citizens of Wisconsin some payback of campaign and travel expenses!

    1. Good catch. And it also exposes "Our American Revival" as a tax-dodging fraud. Time for someone to file complaints with the FEC and GAB

  7. "Walker's inconsistency and complete turnarounds - depending on who he is talking to and what day of the week it is...."

    Wanker, Act 3, Scene 2:

    DONOR: Do you see yonder cloud that's almost in shape of a camel?

    SCOTT WANKER: By the mass, and 'tis like a camel, indeed.

    DONOR: Methinks it is like a weasel.

    SCOTT WANKER: It is backed like a weasel.

    DONOR: Or like a whale?

    SCOTT WANKER: Very like a whale.
