Clueless Scott Walker Gets The Patriot Act Wrong While Lying About President Obama

During an appearance on Fox and Friends, Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) got the status of the Patriot Act wrong and launched into a new big lie while blaming President Obama for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s crushing defeat on renewing provisions of the Patriot Act.

Video:

Walker was asked about the USA Freedom Act being a step back for national security, and he said, “Well, a step back would be doing nothing, so I certainly prefer this over nothing. I just think going forward that it’s another example of the failure of this president to lead. This is an example where the president could lead. Could have used the bully pulpit to tell the American people how important it is to make sure that we have the information to prevent another terrorist attack out there, and this is one of the many tools that we need to do that. I hope that in the future we’ll reestablish the Patriot Act.”

Walker was wrong. The Patriot Act hasn’t gone anywhere. Congress did not repeal the Patriot Act. They tweaked one data collection program in a section of the Patriot Act. Gov. Walker doesn’t understand that the Patriot Act doesn’t need to be “reestablished.” It is still here.

Secondly, President Obama proposed the reforms contained in the USA Freedom Act eighteen months ago. This wasn’t a case of failed leadership because Congress passed the bill that the President supported. Walker’s attempt to blame President Obama for Mitch McConnell’s failure to extend the Patriot Act was nothing less than a complete lie.

Scott Walker was inventing his own reality on Fox News. The Wisconsin governor made the whole thing up because when in doubt, blame Obama. Gov. Walker has repeatedly proven that he is in way over his head. Walker’s intellect does not match his ego and ambition. Where Walker excels is in telling Republican voters exactly what they want to hear.

When one really listens to what Walker is saying, the emperor has no clothes. Behind Walker’s rhetoric is an empty man who devoid of ideas. In other words, Scott Walker might be the perfect presidential candidate for the empty Koch controlled Republican Party.
