Campaigns Consist of Contrasts and Supporters

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on December 14, 2009

Campaigns Consist of Contrasts and Base Supporters” is the title of a post done some time ago by the Walkerophiles at Their post is a lame attempt to demonstrate that Scott Walker has picked up more endorsements, for now, that Tom Barrett. Of course, at the time they wrote that post, Walker had been campaigning for seven years compared to Barrett’s two weeks.

(As a side note, I don’t think it was very nice of them to point out and mock the fact that Walker is mathematically-challenged.)
But if they want to compare and contrast, let’s look at the big names that are being courted by Walker and one of his many Republican rivals, Mark Neumann.

Walker has been on stage with Newt Gingrich this past summer. However, Gingrich is quickly falling out of grace with many conservatives and is being labeled as a RINO (Republican in name only). I don’t know if this will really help Walker with his base.

Walker has also been trying to woo Sarah Palin, the Alaskan governor drop-out, to get her to support his campaign. Again, this is appearing to be another poor choice by Walker, as that Palin has gone over the deep end and has joined the birther movement. You can just hear the Independents hurrying away from Walker on that one.

Meanwhile, Mark Neumann was on stage with Karl Rove today at UW-Milwaukee. I, like many people, think Rove is, for lack of a better word, evil. But there is no denying that Rove also has some chops going for him. Not only was he able to master mind the election of Bush/Cheney, he even got them re-elected even after it was obvious that they were leading the country into ruin with poor fiscal policies and starting the unjust war in Iraq.

As I said, I don’t think much of Rove’s politics, but the fact that he was on stage with Neumann speaks volumes when compared to Walker’s choices of people he seeks support from.
