Walker must be one of the most naive denizens of the Beltway. Surely he knows that what he proposes will never happen and why? So, why would he suggest something he knows will never happen?

Actually, both candidates have frequently repeated their goals for their undefined economic recovery “plans”. There are many reasons why neither want to elucidate the details of their magical plans whether it’s 59 Points of Light, five points or just one. The only one that is clear to everyone is the One.

Walker also implies that Paul Krugman’s Third Depression is getting worse, or was that a mistaken implication?

The DoD is the fattest pig at the trough, after the banksters.

Quit harping about Social Security, Mr. Walker. Greenspan “fixed it”, right, with his high taxes on self-employed. Maybe the income cap should be taken off earnings.

Does your benefactor Pete Petersen pay anything approaching Romney, or does he borrow from his PE firm and not pay a penny?

How about taxing interest and capital gains as ordinary income?

How about Eisenhower-era tax rates on the rich, Mr. Walker?
