Scott Walker: My many changes in positions are not flipflopping



Scott Walker has been accused of being a "flipflopper" for changing positions on many major policy issues over a short period of time. I have such a deep, fundamental respect for Mr. Walker that, for purposes of this article, I want to accept anything he says unquestioningly.

Walker conceded that he switched his position on immigration reform, after saying earlier this month that he no longer backs proposals that would allow those who live in the U.S. illegally a path to citizenship, after supporting those plans in 2013. “This is one where we listened to people all across the country, particularly border governors,” Walker said.

So two years ago he was for amnesty, and now he is against it, because he listened to border governors. Perhaps two years ago he didn't realize the danger posed by legalizing millions of unassimilated illegal aliens. But Scott Walker is the kind of open minded guy who can have a conversation with a border governor, and be open to new facts, and suddenly realize, at the age of 47, "Hey, this amnesty thing for millions of illegals I thought was so good for years as Governor and years before that as County Executive? Maybe it's not as good as I thought!" That doesn't make him a flipflopper, that makes him a deep thinker.

“I’ve always been a supporter of Right to Work, I was a sponsor of it,” Walker said. “I gave 300,000 union workers in my state the right to work four years ago, and I just signed it into law.” But for years, Walker had indicated he had no interest in pushing legislation that would prohibit agreements between businesses and unions that require employees to pay union dues. “My point is I’m not pushing for it,” Walker said during his re-election campaign last year. “I’m not supporting it in this session.”

There's no inconsistency here at all. Scott Walker only said in his reelection campaign that he didn't support right-to-work legislation in the next particular legislative session. But he supports it generally, as a concept, much as we do world peace, or free ice cream. Maybe he would have supported it three legislative sessions later, or four or five. The point is, if you accept his word that he philosophically supported right-to-work, you can't see any inconsistency there either.

Walker has also come under scrutiny on his commitment to opposing abortion. Some social conservatives has highlighted his 2014 campaign ad which said he supports “legislation to increase safety and provide more information for a woman considering her options. The bill leaves the final decision to a woman and her doctor.”

Scott Walker has said he is pro-life. I believe him. I believe he is personally pro-life, and I am 100% certain that he would never get an abortion. And he wants women to have the choice of abortion, but to choose life. That may technically be considered pro-choice, but that position is as close to being pro-life as you can be while still being pro-choice.

On education, Walker’s first budget funded the implementation of the Common Core standards, now anathema to the GOP base. Walker has since backed away from supporting the standards, calling for a commission to review it in his state.

So if he support

Barney Frank releases book describing how he made history


Politico Magazine is featuring a zillion word gushing piece describing how former Congressman Barney Frank is coming out with a book called Frank (which I sincerely hope is merely a reference to his last name, and not to a coded slang word.) Frank will describe Frank's bravery at being the first publically gay congressman in the House of Representatives. I salute his bravery, and also recognize him also for another first: the first member of the House of Representatives to admit to using a gay prostitute and letting his apartment be used as a gay brothel. Since you're going to see Frank pushing his book in print and on talk shows, and since I know he's shy about promoting all his achievements, I think we should also pay him tribute and talk about it here too:

Would you give up sunlight to live in Manhattan?


I get the appeal of living in Manhattan. I don't agree with it, but I understand it. It has a lot of fancy restaurants and bars. It has art museums filled with paintings of overweight white pasty skinned crossdressing Europeans as well as paintings that are inscrutable collections of horizontal or vertical lines that are truly brilliant. It has many plays where actors, playing heterosexual characters, yell their lines and speak in unrealistic ways. It has a lot of theaters with foreign films made in incomprehensible languages that are slow and ponderous but very artistic. These things are hard to find elsewhere, I get it.
