Scott Walker Redefines the ‘Flip-Flop’

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker told Fox News’s Bret Baier yesterday that he hadn’t flip-flopped on immigration — he’s publicly admitted changing his mind on the issue — because . . . he hasn’t voted on it.

“A flip would be someone who voted on something and did something different,” Walker said, “and these are not votes, I don’t have any impact on immigration as a governor, I don’t have any impact as a former county official. I would if I were to run and ultimately be elected as president.”

He doesn’t even look quite serious as he’s saying it. The Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis calls it a “remarkable example of political spin.”
