Over the weekend, Governor Scott Walker was asked if he thought Barack Obama was a Christian. The answer was pretty clear – if you read between the lines:
“I don’t know,” Walker responded. “I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that. I’ve never asked him that.”
Walker then 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?”
Buddy, that’s a “no” if I’ve ever heard one and I couldn’t agree more. You can stick a branch in your eye – it doesn’t make you a tree and I don’t care how many times Obama says he’s a Christian – he ain’t.
We’re obligated as Christians to call out these imposters for what they are and all you have to do is base it on Obama’s actions:
Walker wrote an article in The Washington Post, explaining his reasoning:
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.”
Walker said he does not believe that most Americans care about such matters.“People in the media will [judge], not everyday people,” he said. “I would defy you to come to Wisconsin. You could ask 100 people, and not one of them would say that this is a significant issue.”
On Saturday, Walker suggested that he is being held to a different standard than some Democrats. Citing Teamsters President James Hoffa’s criticism of the tea party movement at an Obama rally in 2011, Walker wondered why the president has also not been asked by reporters about controversial comments made by figures who are prominent on the left.
“Was it Jimmy Hoffa that ripped on the tea party and called them unpatriotic, and the president was standing there and nobody asked him that?” Walker asked. “To me, it seems I’ve had multiple days of an incredible double standard. They don’t ask the president about people like Jimmy Hoffa, they don’t ask Hillary Clinton about others out there.
“My focus isn’t on what the mayor said,” he continued, referring to Giuliani. “My focus is on why I believe, should I choose to get in this election, why I believe we need a fighter.”
Onward to the White House, governor…
