Dana Milbank of The Washington Post is throwing a hissy fit at Scott Walker because he didn’t condemn former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for saying that President Obama doesn’t love America.
Giuliani made his remarks at a dinner where Walker was the guest of honor.
That dinner Wednesday, at New York’s 21 Club, is where Giuliani challenged Obama’s love of country. Even the former mayor preceded his outrageous allegation by saying, “I know this is a horrible thing to say . . . ”
Walker surely knew it was horrible, too, but he refused to say so — and in this failure he displayed a cowardice unworthy of a man who would be president.
But let’s go back to Labor Day 2011 when President Obama spoke at a union rally in Detroit in which he was introduced by Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. The younger Hoffa accused the Tea Party of starting “a war on workers”. Hoffa declared, “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march…Everybody here’s got a vote…Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong.”
Did Obama condemn Hoffa for his language? On the contrary, Obama made a point of saying he was proud of Hoffa in his speech.
Surely, Milbank no doubt Obama to task for his cowardice for not condemning Hoffa. Well, no.
Indeed, it was just last November that Milbank told Laura Ingraham lthat the Tea Party is a “virus” that is “spreading like Ebola in West Africa.”
Like most liberal journalists, Dana Milbank holds Republicans to a high standard that he does not have for President Obama much less himself.
As for Scott Walker, he will do just fine without Dana Milbank’s approval.
