This is the essence of Walker’s appeal — and why he is so dangerous. He is not as outrageous as Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but his technique of scapegoating unions for the nation’s ills is no less demagogic. Sixty-five years ago, another man from Wisconsin made himself a national reputation by frightening the country about the menace of communists, though the actual danger they represented was negligible. Scott Walker is not Joe McCarthy, but his technique is similar: He suggests that the nation’s ills can be cured by fighting labor unions (foremost among the “big government special interests” hurting the United States), even though unions represent just 11 percent of the U.S. workforce and have been at a low ebb.If he moves right on immigration, then I'd take Walker over the field. In any other election, the fact that Walker is a boring guy who gets the job done would be a major handicap. By April, Trump-fatigue will have set in and a guy like Walker will look like the perfect antidote. Trump is the wrecking ball who points out illegal immigrant crime, Walker can simply say, "We should put American workers first." Trump is the fullback the progressives and cuckservatives will expend all their energy fighting, behind him is Walker with the ball (or whichever GOP governor moves to the right on immigration), who will run untouched into the end zone.
