I took another look at this quote from Scott Walker I'd recently posted taken from a right-wing website's interview with our Governor, and I noticed how further absurd is Walker's claim that he'd voted for his idol Ronald Reagan:
I remember, I was a teenager, had just become a teenager and voted for Ronald Reagan — limited government, you know, smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense. You knew what you were getting. You knew how a Reagan administration, a Reagan presidency was going to be better for you.
For Walker, born on Nov. 2, 1967, becoming a teenager began on Nov. 2, 1980 - - two days before Reagan was elected to his first term on Nov. 4, 1980.
He'd have been accurate and truthful If he had said he had just become a teenager when Reagan was first elected, but he added a detail of embellishment to do, what - - build up his relationship cred with Reagan's legacy, persona and constituencies as 2016 rolls around?
