Ah, the last time we checked in with ol’ Hungry, Hungry Hooker-hooves hisself, Dick Morris, he was predicting a 2012 Goat Rodeo landslide win for the Stench & Gilligan, and he was shamed, shushed, and removed from the payroll at Fox.
But today, we have some of his brilliant, always wrong punditry to point and laugh at:
The Wisconsin governor has been elected and reelected, and defeated a recall attempt in a key swing state. His combat credentials are enough to assuage worries the establishment might have about a first-time candidate. His record on job creation and fiscal discipline is admirable. He is the Christie who succeeded; Wisconsin is where the New Jersey governor dreamed his state would be.
Yet Walker’s credentials as a battler against the left earn him backing from the right wing of the Republican Party, including his stand against municipal unions, amnesty and Common Core.
From the Republican point of view, he is America’s most successful governor. He offers a chance to take the education issue away from Hillary Clinton. He has actually turned a school system around, ironically, by applying some of the very same remedies Clinton first proposed in Arkansas in 1982 but has long since abandoned in her sycophancy toward the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers.
And Walker has been vetted. He has been through a trial by fire that no other GOP presidential aspirant has. Under the constant pressure of the municipal labor unions, continuously tested in recalls (both his own and his senators’), he has survived nicely.
Energetic, young, charismatic and fresh, Walker provides just the kind of generational contrast Clinton has most to fear. And, now with Mitt Romney out of the race, he can spread his wings.
And so there you have it: Scott Walker will not be the next president of the United States. Dick Morris’s prediction is the ultimate abettor to a massive, world-class FAIL.
