“REPUBLICAN” CANDIDATE TAKES THREE POSITIONS ON IMMIGRATION … IN ONE WEEK
|| By FITSNEWS || Wisconsin governor Scott Walker will roll out his foreign policy agenda at a speech in Charleston, S.C. this week. And yes … here’s hoping it will be a bit more consistent than his evolving position on immigration.
Over the past week, Walker has taken multiple different positions – and non-positions – on the birthright citizenship (a.k.a. “anchor baby“) debate.
Asked by NBC last week if he supported ending birthright citizenship – part of the comprehensive immigration reform plan rolled out by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump – Walker answered in the affirmative.
“Yeah, to me it’s about enforcing the laws in this country,” he said. “And I’ve been very clear, I think you enforce the laws, and I think it’s important to send a message that we’re going to enforce the laws, no matter how people come here we’re going to enforce the laws.”
Days later, though, Walker told CNBC he wasn’t going to weigh in on the debate “one way or the other.”
But then he did weigh in … again.
“No,” he said, when asked by ABC News whether he had any plans to repeal or alter the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
That’s quite an evolution …
We noted a few months ago that Walker had a “Mitt Romney problem,” referring to the 2012 GOP nominee who was constantly changing his positions (earning him the nickname “Etch-A-Sketch“).
“This cuts deeper than specific issues … it’s about a pattern,” we wrote.
Here’s more from that piece …
Walker – one of the early “Republican” frontrunners – needs to be very careful moving forward. “Flip-flopper” is a terrible label to have, and even if he does win the GOP nomination it could wind up haunting him in general election campaign (as it haunted Romney). More immediately, Walker certainly doesn’t want to be equated with Romney when he heads to early-voting South Carolina, a state which has consistently rejected the liberal Massachusetts politician.
Walker’s vacillation stands in stark contrast to Trump’s boldness on this issue. And again, forget the issue for a moment … it’s all about consistency.
Agree or disagree with Trump, there’s no secret where he stands on the issue (just as there’s no secret he’s driving the debate).
Walker? He comes off looking like a typical politician …
The Koch brothers have been busy and have been unavailable to return his calls. So he does not know what he is supposed to do.
Here is the answer, Scott. You should change the 14th Amendment to say a US Citizen is any child born to parents who are both US citizens. That ends the anchor baby problem and eliminates three of your rivals; Namely, Piyush (Bobby) Jindal; Rafael (Tedd) Cruz; and Marco Antonio Rubio.
It should also be a requirement that people put their “real” names on the ballots in the primaries and president elections, not their fake names.
I hope they pour millions on this guy only to for him to lose.
Nothing says fiscal responsibility like paying millions for breach of contract to buy trains you aren’t even going to use, but on the other hand shelling out millions more for sports stadiums.
How stupid can Republicans be to support this hack? He is in the pocket for special interests, no doubt.
Yet FITS is in the tank for the biggest flip-flopper in the race, Chump. Heks the King of Crony Capitalism, and supported single payer, amnesty, higher taxes, bigger government, praised Obama, both Clintons, given them both money, and a variety of other Democrat issues. Also, we learnedover the weekend that Chump is going to take big money donor cash, has FIVE Super Pac’s, and spoke recently his Super PAC fundraiser.
FITS and Chump were for flip-flopping, before they were against it.
Can’t be true. Grand Tango and Flip both said Walker was the real deal, the great one, the guy who would lead them to victory! Whaaa happened???
Walker,Rubio,Trump etc…doesn’t matter. Dems can’t win in 2016.
Ha!!!! Uncle Joe’s coming to the rescue. And Trump’s a Dem plant who will run third party. You got Trump’ed my friend.
Trump won’t run 3rd party. His people know that.He has effectively ended the Democrat Party as a viable political party by ending any talk of amnesty or a path to citizenship.
Dude, you’re crazy. When the Eee-iiiistablishment rules kick in mid-March and he can’t win anymore delegates and they refuse to change the rules for Trump – look out!!!! Third party – gonna happen.
Ain’t gonna happen Rocky. My source are better than yours.
It is refreshing to hear Trump about American exceptionalism after 8 years of Obama telling us all how evil and bad this country is while destroying it.
Sources? Like what? GLP, Rense and Infowars?
Or Drudge Report and Rush Limbaugh.
2 sources of truth
No wonder you sound so stupid. You’re regurgitating Rush. You know he’s an entertainer playing a character, right?
Me and flip don’t know anything, other than what we are told.
Mohammed and ISIS tells me what to do. Leave GT and flip alone.
I love Mohammed and hate the American flag! LMAO!!!
Listening to GrandTango’s beer farts isn’t a legit source.
Bill encouraging Trump to run was the best phone call he’s ever made. That fact that Flip/GT are falling for it hook, line and sinker is just icing on the cake. Fits and the Dems played you like a dumb little fiddle. Cheers!
Trump won’t run third party? He literally said he would.
Did you see the debate?
Sure did. Said he was keeping that option open.So?
Republicans are still hardly treating him as fair, so the chances are he will make good on his threat.
Who care? Bottom line is NO amnesty or path to citizenship for illegals and the Democrats can’t win elections without them! Ha Ha
You don’t even know anything about Trump. You just made yourself look like the typical Trump supporter…deeply dumb and under informed.
I’m doing this all for Hillary anyways, I think Flip knows that by now. Clinton/Trump 2016!
Bye bye Amigos!!!!
So he’ll run third party because he lost his TV shows and he needs to stay in the news. You don’t think he is serious about being President do you? Why in the hell would he want that hassle? He’s already rich.
It’s funny to see these guys support someone who gives Hillary money, like such a person can be trusted. Flip is a closet socialist anyways.
Hillary will need that money for the commisary in prison.$10 bucks aweek for some jerky and a dew.
He is running on ONE issue-IMMIGRATION.
Trump knows that issue ties into the economy,crime and foreign policy.
He will successfully move the Republican Party away from amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegals. A Wall.
He is doing this country a great service and as a bonus it destroys the Democrat party.
He’s successfully sucking the wingnuts and blatant racists out of the party. Just like he’s supposed to. The GOP knows they need to ditch the crazies if they have any chance of getting on the White House again. Unless some else appears, be prepared for a Bush/? GOP ticket. Enjoy.
Call conservatives and Christians vile names if you wish. They are 40% of the Republican Party. Ronald regan created this coalition with the Moral Majority and won two landslides.
You and the other RINO”s have been spilling this horseshit with your McCain’s and Romney’s and getting your asses kicked. Who in fuck do you think are electing Republicans at the state and local levels?
Go vote Democrat.
We will, don’t worry. You’ll see next year.
Moderate America?The Democrat Party? The party of gay perversion, torching American cities,stealing wealth,illegal immigration and Radical Islam?
No, the voters that left the GOP to reelect Obama. Middle America.
Oh please keep typing things like that. It does so much for us.
They got in bed with the religious wingnuts and now they ARE the party of religious wingnuts. Thankfully the country is becoming more and more secular , like the Founding Fathers wanted.
Wow.The founding fathers wanted a secular nation? LMAO!
It sure doesn’t take long to out you socialists on Fits.
He hasn’t said he running 3rd party. All you dems can do is lie.
He said he would consider it if he wasn’t treated fairly. He still isn’t being treated fairly. I’m sure he doesn’t want all his donations to Hillary to go to waste either so he most likely will!!!!!
Congratulations Rocky. They took the American Flag down in a school district in Tennessee last week.
You socialists knew exactly what you were doing by removing the confederate flag.
Taking it down isn’t good enough! I want it burned! Can I be the one to burn it? Pretty pretty please let me do it! LMAO!!!
Perry, Santorum, Romney etc…doesn’t matter. Dems can’t win in 2012.
At least Flip will get to vote Nikki out in 2016.
Only way I would vote for Nikki is if she runs with Trump.
Wasn’t on here in 2012.
I don’t think the Democrats have any idea how the majority sees them. They are blind to the 2014 election results. Why do you think Hillary is tanking?
He never finished college and has been getting checks from the taxpayers his entire adult life. So yeah, Flip & GT must love Walker.
But Flip has multiple trailer homes, balling in his double wide vacation home today probably.
I may-however that is MORE than you own.
Yes, I’m afraid you are right, I don’t own any trailer park property. You’re so much better than me! LMAO!!!
You are the perfect example of a Trump supporter. Dumb, poor, white, racist, angry and clueless. What will you call your third party?
You are the perfect example of a Obama/ISIS supporter. Dumb,poor,racist,angry and clueless. What will Bernie Sanders call his new party?Sanders Dems for Stalin or Democrat Socialists for Mao?
At least make your comebacks a little bit original, trailer trash.
Obama wasn’t born in this country and nobody can find his grades. Next.
Well, thank god that foreigner came and fixed the disaster left behind by those shitty Americans from the Bush administration.
I was on an airplane with him earlier this month. He “needed a little extra time getting down the jetway.” Didn’t see him on the plane because he was flying coach. Be wary of any politician whose platform includes a constitutional amendment.
Yeah. And my grandmother flies jets! Gee wiz.Where in the fuck do you loones come up with stories like this?
STFU, you ignorant bastard. You suck Obama’s dick, and he’s torn the Constitution to shreds via Executive Order.
Until you acknowledge the TOTAL Fucking Disaster you are, you ain’t worth a shit. So GTFO my face…
Here we go with the Tango Wango – now it’s gay sex references. Waiting on the poop references to start on this thread. “Shred the constitition” while proposing to deport American children. What a piece of work you are. Ha, ha, ha!!!! We laught at your rants, you’re so funny.
Meds wearing off?
Tell us that lie about Trump being on your plane again.

Walker has not “set the world on fire” during this early election season. There have been several other Republican candidates who have found it hard to get political traction. It is attributable to Trump, he can’t stay away from prime time and the front page. Many Republican candidates are suffering the same fate. There’s only so much space on the front page and limited hours available in prime time, and Trump is getting most of it.
Then you can also throw in the Hillary/Biden/Sanders fiasco and you almost have to commit treason, if you are a Republican, to get much press or play.
Get this through your THICKFUCKING HEAD, you FUCKING IDIOT!!!…ANY REPUBLICAN IS BETTER than that FUCK-UP of a failed god you have saddled us with.
If you are not spending every WAKING moment, and while you’re asleep, trying to figure out how to eradicate Democrats from any position of power, YOU are THE FUCKING PROBLEM.
Get you head out of your ass, or you need to SHUT THE FUCK UP, you clueless, brainless ASSHOLE, who is responsible for the DISASTER known as OBAMA!!!!!
And if you are not an ignorant, assbackward Democrat, don’t listen to a FUCKING word this fucking dolt is trying to feed you.
Aaaawwwwww! Are you upset that your little Scotty is on his way out based on his performance. Trump to Walker – “You’re fired.”
No I’m sick of idiots displaying their ignorance. And I’m sick of liars, like you.
Boy, November 2012 must have been like a huge downer for you. Did you ever notice how Obama was elected by a landslide, and then re-elected by a landslide? I thought Romney was gonna win, or was it Rick Perry, or Newtie? Now you’ve gone through Walker and Perry. In another week you’ll be a huge Jeb fan.
But 2014 was a BIG pick-me-up, because it slapped the shit out of you and Obama.
Remember how FITSNews and Obama said the election didn’t matter because their voters stayed home…Hahahah. What a couple of Dumbasses.
I bet you all shit a brick when all those new GOP Senators and House members got sworn in, and they told you worthless fucking Democrats to GTFO the door. I’m still laughing think about it…
And w/o a Black national candidate – to attract the multi-voters- you have NO chance in 2016.
And next year when we retain the Casa Blanco and regain the Senate, you’re head will explode. And when it does, I guess for you, it will be a real crap storm.
Always telling me how good it’s gone be. Yet you looked like a fucking idiot on election day 2014. Just like you did when you told us Walker would lose all 3 times you ignorant fucks tried to take him out.
He savaged those lazy, greedy, fat-cat teachers unions, and you screamed like you were getting ass-raped. And all Walker did was slap the shit out you, and told you to STFU…then he kicked your ass at the polls.
Thanks for reminding me, you ignorant fuck.
Don’t worry Butt lover, Walker’s toast now, and all you got is Trumpito who’s gonna get Bush-wacked.
Ass raped – Dude – you’ve got serious issues.
Slim chance for wH. NO chance for senate. ZERO. Pubs may lose a couple. Harry Reid’s seat is going Republican.
No amnesty or path to citizenship. Love it.
Can’t win without Florida – Trump gave that away last week. Gracias.
Republicans win BIG in Florida.
I think you’re right on that one. The multi-voters were BIG in Fla. No Obama, and they won’t come out for Hillary, Biden or Warren. Too white and too sickening and too rich.
Florida won’t be close.Republicans big.
Not with the 32% Trump takes.
You’re drugged. You just threatened to deport a bunch of peoples kids, you think they’re gonna vote yes for that? Have you been to Miami lately?
But they’ve done exactly as we told them to do. Obamacare – funded. Budget – funded. Trade authoriziation – given. And on top of that the SCOTUS gave us Obamacare forever and Gay Marriage. You want to lose on anything else this year alone. Here’s a clue, Iran deal passes, Pope pokes the GOP in the eye, Obamacare funded through 2016 and the Trade Deal passes. You’ve been had again – ha!!!!!
Court passed Obamacare and Gay marriage. All either does is ensure you’ll get kicked the fuck out of office.
And you’ll scream like a lost welfare check when the GOP president uses Trade authorization to fuck you. Dumbass. That is the plan.
I can assure you snickers that my paych
Bet you my real paychecks are way and above your welfare checks, even with your Haley EBT card.
Looks like I hit a nerve. Hahahaha. I bet you sit on your fat, lazy ass all day, smoking cigarettes, and get a welfare check.
Cigarettes are bad for you. Welfare checks the same. Hey Tango – you still working on getting the SC Poltical Digestion back up?
Two other people typing – well at least we know Flip and Tango are two different people for sure now.
That was mean Rocky. I guess you have enough money to pay for your NON citizen mother in-laws Obamacare?
Oh wait! The taxpayers are funding that subsidy!
Mean? Really, I can recall some mean things thrown my way about 5 days ago. You gonna apologize now?
I am sorry.Immoral hypocrites that really aren’t part of the American ‘fabric’ of life ,liberty and pursuit of happiness, drive me crazy. Especially when the taxpayers are funding such drivel.
You seem like a nice,dishonest guy. :)
DNC pays more than welfare?
Oh yeah. Gettin’ a bonus when Joltin’ Joe jumps in.
Plagerizer,head injured Joe.Love it.
In last polls he wipes the board clean. Not even Trump can touch him. But then again, Donald is Bill Clinton’s masterful play.
Hillary is the nominee. Then prison.
I bet you like it when you see to men holding hands.
That doesn’t bother me as much as seeing an illegal family of 10 pull out their EBT card at Wal Mart and buy T-Bones and shrimp.
T-bones. That’s not good for you either. Too much red meat is bad for you. Eat fish, stay healthy.
Hurry up Tango – I don’t have all day for your response.
You got ALL day. As GT said you are a paid political hac. Nobody could defend the absurdity you defend without either being paid or a communist seeking the downfall of America.
I’m not the one cheering about the stock market dropping.
Please, you root for ISIS and every other foreign enemy in the world while cheering the shredding of the constitution and legalized perversion.
ALL those executive orders go bye bye like the illegals in 2016.
Walker’s gonna win it all. You’ll see – I know – Tango told me so.
Does a picture exist where Scott Walker doesn’t look like a complete oaf?
