Walker's outrageously cold comment about the "lovely thing ... a cool thing" about the "exciting" forced ultrasound pictures. But this can all be cleared up with one simple question:
Why was Walker talking about ultrasound pictures in the first place?Could it be the line:
“We signed a law that requires ultrasound which, think about that, the media tried to make that sound like a crazy idea. Most people I talk to..."In this case, conservatives are embarrassing themselves by actually trying to pull Walker's comment out of context to defend their fumbling "leader" from another insensitive gaffe that just highlights his sociopathic behavior. The major media outlets picked up on the story because it was clearly a relevant and scary insight into a possible presidential candidate.
Getting a lot of help from conservative talk show host Dana Loesch, who all but spoon fed Walker his own talking points, the topic has now been given new life and a chance to reach more people. Here's Dana Loesch, shamelessly self-promoting herself, and using Walker for everything she can get. It's damage control time, with "victim" and misunderstood possible world leader Scott Walker:
Here's the original Walker comment, unedited and in context. Go figure. One more thing, the ultrasound is an unnecessary and costly procedure dictated by big government Republicans getting between a doctor and their patient, something conservatives like Walker claim to be against:
“We signed a law that requires ultrasound which, think about that, the media tried to make that sound like a crazy idea. Most people I talk to, whether they’re pro-life or not, I find people all the time who’ll get out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids’ ultrasound and how excited they are, so that’s a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, you know we still have their first ultrasound picture. It’s just a cool thing out there.”
