Scott Walker: Obama Christian?


The Leftist media have been obsessing over Rudy Giuliani's remarks from last Wednesday, when he dared to state his opinion about Obama's love of country.

Imagine. Giuliani, a private citizen, had the audacity to comment on Obama's record regarding America, a record that has led him to arrive at some conclusions about Obama.

It seems that no issue is more important right now. All that matters is what Giuliani said. The Leftists are so concerned about what Giuliani said that they are demanding other Republicans denounce him.

Absolutely insane!

The fact is, from the beginning of his time as president, Obama has cast slurs about his "beloved country," while at home and abroad.

The fact is he proudly declared he is on a crusade to fundamentally transform America. As Mark Levin points out, you don't love something you want to fundamentally transform.

We're simply dealing in reality here.

I'm glad Giuliani isn't backing down and buckling under pressure from the Leftists as well as members of his own party.

I'm also glad that Scott Walker isn't condemning Giuliani, even though Leftists are tossing deranged criticisms his way. For example, Dave Obey called Walker "shameful." Dana Milbank said, "What Scott Walker did ought to disqualify him as a serious presidential contender."

It's ridiculous.

It's obvious that the Leftists are committed to destroying Scott Walker, but the Giuliani dust-up wasn't enough.

Now, we're back to focusing on Obama's religion. I guess the Leftists thought the Giuliani thing was running out of gas.

So, The Washington Post breathlessly reports that Scott Walker didn't state with metaphysical certitude that Obama is indeed a Christian.


Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said Saturday he does not know whether President Obama is a Christian.

“I don’t know,” Walker said in an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.

Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion.

“I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,” he added. “You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that. How [could] I say if I know either of you are a Christian?”

Walker said such questions from reporters are reflective of a broader problem in the nation’s political-media culture, which he described as fixated on issues that are not relevant to most Americans.

“To me, this is a classic example of why people hate Washington and, increasingly, they dislike the press,” he said. “The things they care about don’t even remotely come close to what you’re asking about.”

...After the interview was completed, Walker spokeswoman Jocelyn Webster telephoned The Washington Post to say the governor was trying to make a point of principle by not answering such kinds of questions, not trying to cast doubt on Obama’s faith.
Do we really want to revisit Jeremiah Wright and that sorry mess?

Yes, Obama insists he's a Christian, yet he couldn't find the time to attend a church service on his first Christmas as president. He's Christian but he's the most radical pro-abortion president in American history. He's Christian but he looks the other way when innocents are slaughtered by the Islamic State.

I suppose the assorted talking heads and the political analysts will say Walker stumbled here. Obama says he Christian so he's Christian. NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

Walker should know that Obama identifies himself as a Christian, but I don't think it's a mistake to note he hasn't discussed religion with Obama and, therefore, won't comment on the matter. It's not a mistake for Walker to refuse to answer stupid questions.

Obama gives lip service to being a Christian, but he doesn't appear to live out his professed faith. He exhibits a disturbing inconsistency when it comes to standing up for what is right and wrong.

We know Obama doesn't believe he's bound by the Constitution and acts accordingly. He doesn't appear to be guided by the Bible either.

Obama has no qualms about dissing Christians, telling us to get off our high horse and take responsibility for the Crusades and slavery, and other such nonsense.

I certainly don't think Walker's comments should be interpreted as Walker to be suggesting that Obama is a Muslim.

Remember this?


Walker is right.

“To me, this is a classic example of why people hate Washington and, increasingly, they dislike the press,” he said. “The things they care about don’t even remotely come close to what you’re asking about.”

He nailed that.

No kidding!

Thank you, Tommy.

Hey Scott, what magazines or newspapers do you read?

Walker is not ready for prime time, hence his reluctance to defend his point of view on a variety of issues, nor take a stand on simple questions that might put his allegiance to conservative extremists in doubt.
