In a Politico report on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s foreign policy, The Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol called the governor “in spring training” on the subject.
Walker broke away from the GOP 2016 scrum two months ago but alarmed Republican donors and establishment leaders when he spoke like a novice on foreign policy, states MediaITE. Walker claimed his successful battle against public sector unions had given him the ability to stand up to ISIS, and he said that Ronald Reagan’s breaking of the Air Traffic Controller’s Union was the most significant foreign policy decision of his lifetime.
President Obama also took a swing at him, telling Walker to “bone up” on his foreign policy.
That is what Walker has apparently been doing by surrounding himself with Republican foreign policy experts and cramming.
Here is the right-wing pundit Kristol’s quote on Walker:
“In spring training – especially when a player is learning a new position – you want to see basic talent, hard work and real improvement,” said Kristol to Politico. “In Scott Walker’s case, so far we’ve seen all three.”
