Herschel Walker learns from Biden

So Amanda Carpenter at the Bulwark (she also is a CNN contributor) is miffed because Senate candidate Herschel Walker won't meet the press.

She wrote, "Short of some unforeseen implosion, Herschel Walker is going to handily win the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat from Georgia now held by Raphael Warnock. And Walker will do it by running the easiest campaign ever.

"Debates? Skip ’em. Sit down with reporters and be grilled on policy? Nah. See, Herschel Walker doesn’t make campaign stops so much as he makes appearances, speaks to fans, and poses for photos.

"Welcome to the life of a celebrity candidate."

Yep. Conservatives are ignoring the press because they no longer want to be punching bags. 

Carpenter has the sadz.

She wrote, "The playbook isn’t hard to read.

"Walker’s introductory campaign video, released last August, is titled 'Run.' In it, he speaks to the camera with his high-school locker room behind him. We see present-day Walker sprinting on the track, with cuts to his old sports footage. A church flashes on the screen as he mentions his faith in God. Then he’s doing mountain climbers and sit-ups in a weight room. He jumps rope and strengthens his arms and abs. We see a yellowed scrapbook of his news clippings. This is designed to show us that Walker knows how to work hard and that he never quits. 

"Then the tone changes. Walker says: 'I’m a conservative because I believe in smaller government, a strong military, personal responsibility, and making sure all people have the opportunity to pursue their dreams. That’s an America worth fighting for.' Then, it’s back to football. An announcer is heard, 'Herschel Walker at the 45, he’s gone!' to roaring cheers. Walker then appears back on the football field, with a stadium light over his shoulder: 'My name is Herschel Walker, and I’m running for the United States Senate.'"

After the 2020 election, Walker is running the way anyone who wants to win would because taking questions from the press is idiocy because the press hates conservatives.

Let us contrast and compare press coverage.

As president, Donald John Trump gave the press ample access. Not only did he do Fox interviews, but he gave NYT and other hostile outlets plenty of his time.

He often would do impromptu press conferences before boarding Marine One, the presidential helicopter. He would stand in the driveway and take questions for 10, 15 and even 25 minutes.

How did the press show its gratitude?

By badgering him about not holding a formal press conference. By calling him a liar when he told the truth. By aiding and abetting Obama's use of the FBI to spy on him.

Meanwhile, Biden spent his days in Delaware running a Warren Harding-style campaign. Biden occasionally popped out of his hole to look at his shadow and eat an ice cream cone.

The press rewarded his ignoring them by covering up the story about Hunter's laptop.

Walker paid attention. He learned. Screw the press. Treat reporters like the dogs they are. They want a story? Too bad. They want an interview? Too bad. They want access? Too bad.

Decades of press prejudice has de-legitimized it. Less than 10% of the country watches the evening news. Newspaper circulations are even lower. By writing off the half of the country that is conservative, the press made itself irrelevant. Candidates who want conservative votes should not waste their time by talking to Amanda Carpenter and her cronies.

J.D. Vance and every other Republican nominee this year should emulate Walker and ignore the press.

  1. Bravo, Don. You nailed it, 100%. Now let's see the rest of the R candidates use that strategy. It's a winner. It worked for Biden, didn't it? (Love to see the left and their reporters get what they deserve. Gooder and harder.)

    1. That he did! I got neck-whiplash when I read, "Less than 10% of the country watches the evening news." Well, if they keep throwing abrasive, condescending and corrupt news actresses like Norah O'Donnell (Viacom-CBS; paid $8M/year) on the air, soon they'll be lucky to get 5%.

  2. In 2022 the Press needs conservative candidates more than the conservative candidates need the Press

  3. The MAGA republicans are learning.

    We shall see if they have truly learned a lesson if they reject the usual suspects that moderate the “debates” in 2024.

  4. Great point that hundreds of other candidates need to follow! One wonders though, have other senate candidates NOTICED walkers strategy? Maybe so.

    And then when the certain liberal reporter begin to hound and harass these people WHY they aren't giving press interviews, bring up BRANDON and use him as comparison!! Brilliant!!

  5. I attribute the current divide with the msm to W. He should have refused to issue cbs a Whitehouse press pass after wallace's false attack. That could have sent a message to the rest.

  8. Just the liberal press. And the TV/Cable Newsies. If I was running I'd offer interviews with those I trusted and who gave me final edit. No final edit, no interview.
    I know it's just not done giving the interviewee a final edit. Okay. Then no interview. Why give them what they have to have? Oh and I would make them give me a certified copy of the raw footage of the interview. Just in case. Trust but verify.

  10. MSM has been playing attack dogs for the democrats for a long time, problem, some still believe them.

  11. Trump coined the words "Fake News" and he is correct. The problem with the MSM is they could care less about reporting the news and everything about pushing their own personal political agendas on America. That's what they do. A long time ago they had for all practical purposes a monopoly on news coverage. Not any more. They were still blowing smoke up Obama's posterior, after I quit watching and reading their version of the news. If you've been fed manure your whole life it may seem to taste okay. Once you find real food you never go back.

  12. Better yet. Ignore her AND call her a RAYCISSS for no other reason than she is pestering a black man. See how much she likes it.

  13. It's been stunning to me to see how quickly a lot of these guys have ruined their careers and credibility. Amanda Carpenter is one of them. Remember she used to work for Ted Cruz! Now she's at The Bulwark. A publication that the market doesn't care about or read. Jonah Goldberg, Steve Hayes, and others are more examples. If they truly cared about policy they would give ALL candidates a fair shot instead of making it personal...and personal is what Amanda has done. Walker has Trump association so in her mind he's out.
