Predictable: Former John McCain Operative Calls Scott Walker ‘Kind of a Dumba–‘

sctwlkrcpcEstablishment and squishy Republicans love to criticize conservative Republicans, so it comes as no surprise that former John McCain 2008 presidential campaign adviser Mark Salter is piling on Scott Walker. At CPAC this past weekend, when asked how he would handle ISIS as president, Walker responded, “We need a leader with that kind of confidence. If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world.”

Business Insider reports,

On Thursday, Salter went on Facebook and posted an article criticizing a comment Walker made about the Islamic State jihadist group (also known as ISIS or ISIL) at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Salter added a colorful comment.

“I want to like him but Scott Walker is kind of a dumb ass,” Salter wrote.

Who needs Democrats when you have Republicans like Salter slamming one of our best candidates for president? Sounds like sour grapes over McCain losing in 2008 – no doubt in part Salter’s fault.
