I'd rather have a good governor who is elderly than the nation's third worst (soon to be second worst) governor who is young.
What isn't mentioned is that any republican would have the same fame. Only a Democrat can be a good governor. Just ask any liberal on this forum.
This does bring up something the great political scientist Adolph Reed, Jr. (*) said. Dr. Reed said that everyone thinks their state legislature is the worst in the nation.
And yes, Walker seems like the worst because he is our problem.
To be realistic. I never once thought that Tommy Thompson or Scott McCallum were particularly dreadful, although even my Republican friends thought the latter was truly mediocre.
As for Walker, I agree with Trump that Walker is a terrible governor. I think The Donald hit that one square on the head. No wonder Walker had poll numbers of about 0% when he dropped out of the race. So much for the GOP conservative rock star.
(*) Full disclosure -- Dr. Reed's father, Adolph Reed, Sr. was a close friend of my parents. Reed, Sr. and my mother were both political scientists, although Reed, Sr. was certainly a bigger star in the field. He and my father were both jazz lovers, with Wagstaff-like knowledge of arcane jazz. Imagine a white New York jazz lover who had founded the Columbia University radio station along with a black jazz lover from New Orleans, both incredibly knowledgeable. They had some interesting discussions that went WAY over my head.
