Scott Walker is ubiquitous. He is talked about or written about more than almost all the other Republican Presidential candidate hopefuls combined. True, some of the talk and written remarks have a more negative than positive tone but it is getting his name into common usage and it is diminishing the others who have announced their interest.

Our President appears to believe that we who think we have a problem with a growing segment of militant Islamists are fomenting an “ugly lie”. It is difficult for me to see what he apparently sees, or at least professes to see, and I doubt that it relates much to the difference in our vantage points. If anything, he ought to be able to see it far more clearly than I. I see ISIS or ISIL, whichever you might prefer, as evil personified. And I see this movement as largely composed of Islamists. But our President doesn’t think I am seeing what I am seeing.
