Scott Walker, Populist
Thomas B. Edsall quotes a college professor and accuses Scott Walker of " ... activat[ing] the racial animus of white workers.” Ignore for a moment that activating the racial animus of blacks is the guiding principle of the Democrats.
But then he quotes Walker when he says:
“We need to make sure we put American workers first in everything we do, from immigration to tax policy to regulatory reform.”
Is that a bad thing? should that make Americans move away from Walker?
Oh, and he says that Walker taps into the populist hostility toward corporate America, keeping eages low while making record profits.
Be afraid, NY Times, be very afraid.
