Walker schooled, unmasked again on national stage

Ohio Governor John Kasich a few days ago put Scott Walker in his place when warning Walker about his rhetoric.

Now we have an account of Walker being corrected on "Meet the Press" by host Chuck Todd who interrupted Walker and corrected him for twisting data about job and wage growth in Wisconsin to make the Governor look successful, perhaps even presidential

As Walker has done repeatedly around here.

Todd earned a "True" rating for his numbers, so add your own "False" for Walker...or "True" that Walker is not ready for prime time,

But is clearly ready to be defined accurately.

Because the national stage is not a local radio talk show studio, and is farther out of his control.

If he ties to pull that crap with the national media as he does with the Wisconsin media he's gonna have his head handed to him. I don't think he's got the right stuff to go in the ring with the big boys. It's one thing to preach to the choir but it's quite another thing to speak to America!

Everyone that is proclaiming walker's habitual lies can't play to the national stage isn't paying attention.

So is boner, mcturtle, rand, romney, ryan, or the rest of that clown car any more honest?

Was george WALKER bush?

Of course not -- chuck todd isn't the last word here and, when the repugs need a gamer -- will stand up for their lying liars.

Funny how anyone here wants to make it out like todd has any integrity as a journalist.

Anon@5:39: You're right, Chuck will fall in line when the Chosen One is anointed; his lack of deference to our Golden Boy shows he must have a pretty good idea that it's not going to be Scooter. Still, let the national folks toy with him for awhile. They might even mention that little legal unpleasantness if he gets too big for his britches. We don't want an implosion this early in the game. He (and the state that loves him so) hasn't gotten a taste of what it's going to be like outside the cheddar curtain.
Run, Scotty, run.

Yet he avoided a yes no question on pensions. Makes me wonder.

He's going to raid the State pension fund - count on it.
