As Scott Walker gets closer and closer to announcing his run for president, he’s doubling down on extreme positions that are taking him closer and closer to the right wing conservative base. On top of that, he’s avoiding answering press questions on these positions because he only wants to talk about them to extreme audiences who share his views. In just the past couple weeks, he avoided answering press questions at CPAC in late February, after a speech to the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce last week, at the Iowa Ag Summit this past weekend, and after signing his disastrous right-to-work bill in Wisconsin yesterday.
Since Scott Walker won’t talk about his positions, we’re happy to fill the void. Here’s what Walker has been up to lately:
- He insulted working families across the country when he compared union protesters to ISIS terrorists;
- He’s falsely claimed that President Reagan firing air traffic controllers made the Soviet Union take him more seriously;
- He’s attacking working families again by pushing through new right-to-work legislation after promising he wouldn’t;
