Apparently Our Dumb Governor thinks he knows better than President Obama how to .
Walker, who is mulling a run for president in 2016, joined a lawsuit earlier this month seeking to block Obama’s executive action sparing as many as 5 million people living illegally in the United States from deportation. Obama announced the action in November, saying it was an important step to fix the nation’s broken immigration system.
“I and other governors, as well as attorneys general, feel that even though we have executive powers, we feel the president is misusing his. This is a dramatic overreach of his authority,” Walker said, “We think there are the potential for tremendous new costs that could be pushed onto the states in terms of public assistance, education, other related costs that this action potentially brings on — yet again without the federal government providing any funding or assistance.”
Not content to show how utterly devoid of actual ideas he is on the issue of illegal immigration, Gov. Walker then waded into a discussion of foreign policy, a subject he has absolutely no experience with.
Walker also knocked the president’s approach toward the emerging threat of the militant group that calls itself the Islamic State, and his handling of national security generally.
“I think when you make idle threats…in a bizarre parallel, it’s kind of like as a parent, if you tell your kids, ‘If you don’t stop doing that, something is going to happen,'” Walker said. “If you continue to make threats and never act on them, that child is going to keep doing it.”
Walker added, “If you keep making threats and fail to act on them, I think that weakens not only our credibility, but it weakens our safety.”
And he repeated his criticism of Obama’s recently announced plans to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba, saying he doesn’t believe there’s been enough substantial change in Cuba to warrant normalizing relations with the country.
And this guy thinks he’s qualified to be president.
