As the election cycle gains traction, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) lack of education is becoming more obvious. He displayed it during the Thursday night debate through his lack of foreign policy knowledge, and even geography.
Juan Cole of Informed Comment noted an exchange between Walker and Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly. She asked Walker about American foreign policy, and he struggled to recite a good answer. He even struggled forming a complete sentence.
KELLY: Governor Walker, in February you said that we needed to gain partners in the Arab world. Which Arab country not already in the U.S. led coalition has potential to be our greatest partner?
WALKER: What about then (ph), we need to focus on the ones we have. You look at Egypt, probably the best relationship we’ve had in Israel, at least in my lifetime, incredibly important.
You look at the Saudis — in fact, earlier this year, I met with Saudi leaders, and leaders from the United Arab Emirates, and I asked them what’s the greatest challenge in the world today? Set aside the Iran deal. They said it’s the disengagement of America. We are leading from behind under the Obama-Clinton doctrine — America’s a great country. We need to stand up and start leading again, and we need to have allies, not just in Israel, but throughout the Persian Gulf.
Anyone watching the debate had to have noticed Walker’s weak, flailing response. He mixed up countries and failed to acknowledge the countries that America has a relationship with. His muddled response and incoherent rambling is reminiscent of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who gets crazier by the day.
It’s safe to say that Walker is one Republican who will not get the GOP nod next year.
