Krauthammer: Scott Walker getting to 2016 Top Tier

Posted by  ▪  Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 8:30am

The speech he made in Iowa changed things.

Scott Walker Krauthammer

Charles Krauthammer was on the O’Reilly Factor last night to discuss the Republican contenders for 2016. Wisconsin governor Scott Walker got some kind words from Dr. K, who said that his speech in Iowa last weekend changed things.


You’ll notice in the video that O’Reilly and Krauthammer both reference compliments Scott Walker recently received from Rush Limbaugh. Here’s a sample from Limbaugh’s site:

Scott Walker Wows ‘Em in Iowa

Scott Walker wowed them in Iowa at whatever this thing was, this Republican, slash, conservative, just wowed them. And you know me, folks, if you have spent any time listening to this program in the last two years, you know that I believe Scott Walker is the blueprint for the Republican Party if they are serious about beating the left. Scott Walker has shown how to do it. And apparently he showed up and he made a speech on Saturday that had people telling them it reminded them of the speech I gave at CPAC…

Scott Walker has shown the Republican Party how to beat the left. Scott Walker has the blueprint for winning and winning consistently and winning big in a blue state with conservative principles that are offered with absolutely no excuses. The left, the Democrat Party, threw everything at Scott Walker trying to destroy him. They did everything they could. He not only withstood it all, he survived and triumphed over all of it. They broke rules. They got close to breaking laws. They were threatening his family personally, and he remained undeterred.

Some bloggers are pretty excited about Walker. @rdbrewer from Ace of Spades HQ is already making campaign posters:

Philly Guy.

William A. Jacobson and  Philly guy

Had a good speech last night at the Jewish Community Center in Rochester (NY) on the topic of Boycotting Israel: The insidious threat of the BDS movement.

I’ll post the video soon.

As previously mentioned, the speech was sponsored by Roc4Israel.

We had over 200 people in attendance.

Including the suspicious looking character standing next to me in the Featured Image.

He’s longtime Legal Insurrection reader and commenter Philly Guy.

There were several other readers in the audience. Meeting readers at events is one of my favorite parts of public appearances.

What was Philly Guy doing in Rochester? It’s a long story, and if I told you I’d have to, well, you know.
