When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS,CNN and Andy Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

SCOTT WALKER PROUD OF DISMANTLING WISCONSIN UNIONS, SAYS IT MAKES HIM GOOD FOR TAKING ON ISIS

SCOTT WALKER NO ORDINARY IDIOT


As if:

At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) just outside Washington, DC, Wisconsin Governor and likely presidential candidate Scott Walker was asked what his plan would be, were he in the White House, to combat the terrorism perpetuated by the Islamic State In Syria (ISIS).

As an enthusiastic crowd cheered, he responded not with a plan but with an argument for why his battles against organized labor in his state makes him the most qualified for the job.
“We need have someone who leads and ultimately will send a message that not only will we protect American soil, but…freedom-loving people anywhere else in the world. We need that confidence,” he said. “If I can take on a hundred thousand protesters, I can do the same across the world.”




Walker focused a good deal of his prime-time speech on the anti-union measures he has championed in Wisconsin, including a so-called “right-to-work” bill that he previously called a “distraction” that he did not support. He also touted his restrictions on teachers’ unions, telling the CPAC audience: “We don’t have tenure anymore. We can hire and fire anyone we want.”

Walker has since walked back his remarks to Bloomberg Politics, saying, “My point was just, if I could handle that kind of a pressure and kind of intensity, I think I’m up for the challenge for whatever might come, if I choose to run for president,” and he told CNN that he didn't regret the remarks, but “there’s no analogy between the two other than difficult situation.”

If the dumbass that is Scott Walker - if this is the best the wing nut can put forward as their presidential hopeful for 2016, I can' t wait.
