I am glad to finally hear a conservative that knows how to handle liberal so-called journalists when asked stupid gotcha questions. When Governor Scott Walker was asked if he thought President Obama is a Christian, he responded with a logical common sense answer:
“I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,” he added. “You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that. How [could] I say if I know either of you are a Christian?”
When he did not give them the opportunity to trap him with a gotcha question, Howard Dean was forced to put words in his (Governor Walker’s) mouth:
“Scott Walker] is catering to the right wing. The trouble with that is he’s going to have the same problem that Mitt Romney did. He’s going to say some things that are hard to live down. Because the average American voter doesn’t want to know, they want to know that he thinks, he respects the presidency and obviously you can’t respect the presidency if you think he’s, you say he’s not a Christian; he was born in Kenya, and all of this other crazy crap. He’s now catering to the crazy wing of the Republican Party. That’s great in the primaries but it’s going to come back and bite him in the general election.”
Howard Dean (and most of the liberal media) wished that Governor Walker would have said those words. If the liberal media could just get Walker or any other conservative elected official to utter those words, it would give them (the liberal media) a tool to paint conservatives as right wing extremist nut-jobs who hate the President. They could then use it as yet another narrative to distract the public from the daily disasters coming out of the White House. Republican elected officials should learn how to play the game with liberal reporters. It is really not that difficult to handle liberals and their leftwing so-called journalist. All that conservatives have to do is turn their idiotic questions around on them. In fact, when conservatives are asked to respond to or condemn comments made by another conservative, the response should be as follows:
How is it my place to respond to comments made by someone else? Republicans are independent thinkers. Our party is not comprised of monolithic thinkers. I neither condemn nor agree with the comments made by someone else. I will be more than happy to expand on or clarify comments that I have made.
