Walker says visits to 6 countries makes him most-qualified on foreign policy

[Updated] Reposted with corrected headline:
Follow Walker's weaving away from CBS' Bob Schieffer's questions, tossing out chaff, Reagan worship and word salad because Walker has no actual foreign policy credentials to offer in answer to Schieffer's inquiries. There is no end to this man's incoherent arrogance: 
Likely Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker argued on Sunday that he would be the most qualified person to lead the country’s foreign policy because he had visited six countries while serving as governor of Wisconsin...
Scott Walker speaks to CBS (screen grab) 
“As a governor, I’ve been, just recently in Germany, in Spain and France,” Walker explained. “Earlier in the year, it was the United Kingdom on trade related missions. A few years back in China and Japan. So, that’s probably the most of any governor of either party has is that experience in terms of trade relations.”

But I weren't his trips to Germany, France and Spain also trade missions? They were not trips to meet with those countries leaders were they? So, then exactly how does that make him an expert on foreign relations. If just visiting countries made a person an expert in foreign relations, there there are many common citizens who are way more qualified than he is.

I knew as did many others that when he announced those trips that this is what he would end up saying about traveling abroad. You hit the nail on the head with the arrogance remark. It doesn't take much for him to feel arrogant though.

The number of days Scott Walker has spent out of the country on FunJet tours exceeds the number of days he's spend in Wisconsin this year.

Couldn't he just take foreign policy classes at IHOP in the evenings, when he's in Wi, to brush up?

He's not truly listening to God. That is useful lie to secure the conservative base.

He ONLY listens to the $$$$. The Koch brothers have a direct line to the Scotty puppet.

I guess our currency does all say, "In God We Trust", but most of us that read the Bible would assume that stealing is wrong and a sin.

And about those republican conservative religious values, where in the New Testament does Jesus kill the poor by denying them health care, food, housing, and clothing"

Keep talking, Scooter. No amount of hero-worshiping state and national press coverage is going to protect you if you just keep talking.
Give your in-house and Dem opponents lots and lots of ammo.
Even when you talk by refusing to talk you're arming the opposition.
Keep talking.
