Maybe someone from the Walker camp requested a life-preserver?
Ricketts took a shot at Donald Trump for saying that…
“(Japan sells us millions of cars)…and we sell them beef. We sell them beef. And they don’t want it because their farmers don’t want our beef. They protest and they send it back, right?”
Ricketts, on a trip to Asia, said, no, Japan buys Nebraska beef, and they want to buy more.
This comes at a time when the most recent national poll shows Governor Scott Walker down to…0%! Zero! Yikes!
Now this of course is NOT an Iowa only or a New Hampshire only or a South Carolina only poll. And there seems often to be little worth in asking people nationwide. But, FWIW, Walker is currently down in the dumps nationally, with Graham, Jindal and Pataki. Even Rick Santorum is up to 1%.
Walker’s early lead was attributed by some to the fact that he was a vanilla candidate — not necessarily boring, but one that everyone agrees they at least like, though probably don’t love.
Well, for now the public has moved on to the Pineapple Upside Down Cake that everyone else at the table is raving about. Boy it LOOKS really good! And EVERYONE is talking about it!
(And yes, I realize I’ve opened up the dessert analogy for everyone to go wild on. Have at it…)
And speaking of local thoughts on the Presidential primary…this one is not terribly shocking.
“Rand Paul wins Douglas County (Nebraska) Republican Party Straw Poll at Debate Watch Party.”
Interesting on many levels…
