Scott Walker Is Too Sick To Meet With Obama!

Oh dude what is this? Wisconsin union-krushing Gov. Scott Walker cannot join Barack Obama today on his exciting journey through the Milwaukee Master Lock factory because he has the stomach flu. He has… the stomach flu. “Still recovering from a nasty case of the flu,” he wrote, today. Hmm.

He clearly does not have the flu. No one has the stomach flu. Those people who have the stomach flu and tell you they can’t go somewhere? Those people were making it up because they don’t like you. That time you had the stomach flu and told those people you couldn’t go with them somewhere? You were making it up. Yes, you were. No one has ever had to cancel anything because they had the stomach flu.

Okay maybe he is sick — we completely made up that last paragraph — but he’s probably been looking for an excuse to get out of this awkward sidecar-bitch situation:

Obama’s visit is intended to highlight an economic success story in a state that continues to lose private sector jobs. In his state of the Union address he touted Master Lock, a unionized company that has brought back 100 jobs from China.

    Walker must have heard about the finger incident at the White House

    • Texan_Bulldog

      Also, I think Barry was gentleman enough to let Jan wag her finger in his face, but I'm pretty sure he would have snapped Scottie's finger right off…at the shoulder.

      • DaRooster

        I would pay to see this!

    • http://www.wonkette.com Chillwillard

      The invitation sent to Walker was wrapping a fish.

      • tessiee

        I thought Rahm Emanuel didn't work there any more.

  • zappadoo76

    There is no such thing as stomach flu. It's always food poisoning. Scott should get himself a taster. Who could we nominate for that job?

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      I blame Walker. No one told him to buy that bottle of Santorum's Steak Sauce.

      • Barb

        A-2 Sauce?

        • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

          So THAT'S what Caesar was saying to Brutus!

        • BaldarTFlagass

          A-Nus Sauce. Oops, should have left that comment on the previous thread.

          • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

            That's a one size fits all comment, good for any thread.

    • http://www.storycorner.us/ JustPixelz

      A union food taster. Those free-lancers don't have the same pride in their work.

    • http://www.wonkette.com/ FlownOver

      Hitler!

      What? Oh, sorry… wrong meme.

    • tessiee

      "Scott should get himself a taster. Who could we nominate for that job?"

      Chris Christie?

      Of course, he'd eat up *all* the food, and Scott would starve to death, so… hmm, ya know what? That could work.

    • tessiee

      "Scott should get himself a taster. Who could we nominate for that job?"

      If we're going for the naughty sex meaning of "taster", I suggest we have Rick Perry and Rick Santorum fight for the job. We could call it The Battle of Ricks for Pricks.

    • tessiee

      "Scott should get himself a taster. Who could we nominate for that job? "

      *waves hand eagerly*

      Ooh! Me! Me! Pick me! I want to tase him till he flops like a catfish!
      Oh, "tasTer".
      Never mind.

  • memzilla

    I hope Scotty boy gets the finest healthcare that unionized doctors and nurses can provide him.

    • http://www.storycorner.us/ JustPixelz

      "I hope Scotty…"

      … has health insurance?
      … gets a transvaginal probe to be sure he understands the flu?
      … has a full recovery during his upcoming retirement?

  • Barb

    Maybe he is sick from a recalled chicken. You are what you eat.

  • prommie

    I think he might be afraid of the black man, this is the political equivalent of crossing the street.

    • Biff

      I'm picturing this.

      • James Michael Curley

        I'm not touching that link!

        • Biff

          Perfectly harmless.

  • jus_wonderin

    Dammit, I was going to use that excuse to play hookey on Friday. I have run out of dead relatives funerals to attend.

  • prommie

    He's defecating in terror!

    • Fare la Volpe

      He totally mitt all over himself.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Obama: "No problem, Scott! I'll just swing on by your house and leave you some of Michelle's tummy-calming chicken soup! I really want to have a photo op with you, and I don't get up to Wisconsin nearly as much as I'd like!!"

    Walker: "uhhhh, uhhhh…"

  • Sparky MacGyver

    You'd think that smarmy bastard would want to meet with Obama, in order to pass on the stomach flu to the Kenyan usurper. That would improve his standing in the wingnut world.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Sounds like Governor Walker got a bad case of scabbies.

    • DaRooster

      Sounds like Governor Walker got is a bad case of scabbies.

      (fixed)

  • http://www.storycorner.us/ JustPixelz

    Stomach flu is very common.

    If I had a Cayman Islands bank account for every time one of my dates came down with the stomach flu at the last minute, I'd be against the Buffet Rule.

  • http://www.vinoverve.com Maman

    New union jobs in state where you are trying to destroy unions? I would be sick to my stomach too. Pussy.

    "Scott Walker Is Sick…..". FIXED!

  • Generation[redacted]

    Unions brought back 100 jobs from China? This is going to hurt the Koch bros' dividend returns. Why are they making the job creators suffer so?

  • Poindexter718

    In the governor's defense, he did mention at dinner last night that he thought the suckling infant tasted a bit "off."

  • Schmannnity

    Apparently never heard the old adage, Eat shit and die Walker.

  • http://Wonkette.com MLHencken

    Scott Walker should just borrow one of Vitter's diapers and get the hell back to work.

  • http://johnnyzhivago.blogspot.com johnnyzhivago

    Brought back 100 union jobs to America from China??? Sounds like somebody didn't get the message.

    • MadBrahms

      Did they get to keep their yellow shirts?

    • DaRooster

      Why does Master Lock hate America?!?

  • Hera Sent Me

    His stomach got filled with the bile he had to swallow at the way Obama cornered him.

  • CapnFatback

    No kidding. He's too sick to hold public office too, but that didn't stop him.

  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    No one with a pair of eyes that beady and saturnine can convince me they've come down with anything prohibiting him from meeting the President except the Moronic Plague.

  • paris biltong

    My son uses the sick stomach excuse when he doesn't want to go to school. I did the same at his age (except more often) but neither of us is the governor or a State being visited by POTUS.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      My mom's cure for that was… flat Coke. Where the hell did that come from?

      • ThundercatHo

        Coca-cola syrup over ice chips was my mom's cure all. Remember Paregoric?

      • Fare la Volpe

        Coca-Cola was originally designed as a cough syrup, but during the first batch production, the creator accidentally added carbonated water to the mixture instead of distilled. Once Coke took off as a soft drink, he started spreading the (complete lie) that the carcinogenic can of chemicals was super duper healthy too because it was originally supposed to be medicine. Kind of like how Corn Flakes are healthy for you because they were originally designed to stop masturbation (dead serious).

        • GOPCrusher

          Corn Flakes stops masturbation?
          That's bullshit. Or so I've heard.

        • horsedreamer_1

        Saltine crackers and 7-up here. Walker already has enough whiteness in his life, though.

    Please excuse my son Scott today. He has a tummy ache.

    Sincerely,

      Pff, he has the Koch Brothers write those.

  • Chichikovovich

    Obama’s visit is intended to highlight an economic success story in a state that continues to lose private sector jobs. In his state of the Union address he touted Master Lock, a unionized company that has brought back 100 jobs from China.

    I have a hunch the issue isn't appearing with Obama as such. It's that Obama is going to places like this one, where the unionized workers will break out into loud boos and catcalls when Walker strides on stage, and then break into open hoots of derision every time Scotty-boy says anything, including the obligatory lamely delivered Bulls versus Packers reference.

    • memzilla

      Good point. The Photo Oppus Malus virus is very debilitating.

    • tessiee

      So, it's not just the blackitude, it's that Obama is completely and publicly shooting to hell Scotty's theory that unions destroy jobs?

      And you know how it is with these 99% people; if they hear that somebody else has a job, suddenly *they* want a job, too.

  • Not_So_Much

    It's because he can't look Barry in the eye. Literally — his beady, little pig eyes are so close together that they only look at each other. What a fucking douchecanoe he is.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Maybe Oba-dysseus can slay the cyclops!!

    He's got Jungle Fever.

      That was douche GOP senator and centerfold Scott Brown from Massachusetts.

      • tessiee

        Maybe all the assmarmots named Scott are in a secret club?

  • http://ifthethunderdontgetya.blogspot.com/ ifthethunderdontgetya

    That's what Walker deserves for swallowing Koch brothers turds 24-7.

  • SolitaireRose

    And I was so looking forward to him shouting at Obama, shaking a finger at him, and then claiming Obama was mean and stole his wallet. I mean, it worked in Arizona, right?

  • EatsBabyDingos

    Aunt Rhea was having a bad day when she called Scotty. "Sorry, Barry, but Aunt Rhea needs me today. She was trying to explain it to me, but dire Rhea was all over the place"

    • jus_wonderin

      Is Aunt Rhea married to Uncle Shart?

    • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

    Good thing he's not the Governor of Virginia.

    They'd make him assume the taxpayer position and give him an ultrasound probe – just to be safe.

    Today, Scott's ass is open for business.

  • ThundercatHo

    Is it as nice as the one at the strip club?

  • MoeDeLawn

    Dear Gov. Walker,
    On Wednesday, President Obama will be in your state. You are required to stay at home. Make up some excuse like you're ill or something. The President does not wish to be seen near you nor does he wish to see you. We will post agents outside your residence to ensure that you stay indoors.
    Your pals, The Secret Service

  • MadBrahms

    On the off chance he's not faking, maybe we should give him some credit for not wanting to vom on the president. If it was Jan Brewer, you know she'd still go (though everything she says is word vomit anyway).

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      He's a governor. He can get prescriptions that will prop him up even if he's dead.

    If the President, any President, was coming to the State over which I was governor, I would chug a bottle of Pepto, take a few Tylenol, then put on a smile and go shake the President's hand.

    Ah, hell, I used that same bullshit my-stomach-hurts excuse to get out of going to school, but I was ten years old. Grow up, Walker. If you don't want to talk to the president, then just tell him the truth. Black people scare you.

    Obama should take Scott some chicken soup just to fuck him.

  • chascates

    Walker has always suffered from brain diarrhea.

  • http://www.gurukalehuru.wordpress.com gurukalehuru

    A bold and brilliant move on the part of Barry – veritable 11th dimensional chess, as the meme goes – visiting states like Arizona and Wisconsin, where the governors have made ridiculously horrible comments about him.
    If they don't actually spit on his shoes, they will look weak in front of their base. If they do anything other than smile for the cameras and shake hands, they will look like totally outclassed buffoons to everybody else.

  • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

    What an asshole. I'd be honored to meet Obama. Take some fucking kaopectate and get over it , you fucking moron.

    Look who had a quick and speedy recovery! The current above-the-fold image on JSonline shows our favorite cross-eyed, shinola-polished-hair-having weasel presenting our president with a Brewers jersey.

  • owhatever

    The coward passed up a chance to poke his finger in the President's face, like that Arizona nutcase governor? Of course, the Big O might decide enough's enough of that shit, and break it off.

  • DaSandman

    Still sore from servicing all that Koch, Scotto?

  • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

    Should I even bother to state the obvious fact that if this were a white president, Scotty would get his ass down to that factory pronto? In the new GOP, it's considered good politics to disrespect the president.

      No, but there is when he runs for President in 2016 and he reminds primary voters that he was man enough to refuse to see the President when he came to Wisconsin in 2012.

    And now, the President of the United States…

    I'd like to thank all of you for coming out to the plant today. Governor Walker couldn't be here due to stomach flu and I…

    No, really. Stomach flu, and I hope he's feeling better soon.

    I could understand not trying to give people the flu, especially the President, even though I suspect Walker is just being dishonest again. However, there is a Lieutenant Governor and it would not be that hard to send them and a simple apology for being too ill to attend.

  • __kth__

    Of course Obama wouldn't show him up in any way. It would just be a cordial photo op, but that's exactly the thing that would ruin Walker with the wingnuts.

  • Negropolis

    Scott Walker Is Too Sick To Meet With Obama!

    This is good news for the president, and for my blood pressure, also. I could not tolerate seeing the two, together, shooting fake-as-shit, obligatory photos for the media. Walker is terrible. Walker, Rick Scott and Kasich have to be the three most personally repugnant governors in the entire country. And, that's quite a task when your competition includes Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Mitch Daniels, Nikki Haley, etc…

    BTW, we sure that this "stomach flu" isn't…isn't…tapeworms? Hengh?
