Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) is getting some serious pushback on his claim that British prime minister David Cameron criticized President Obama’s foreign policy record in a meeting with the prospective GOP presidential candidate — specifically, he’s getting it from Cameron’s office.

“I heard that from David Cameron back in February when we were over at 10 Downing,” Walker reportedly told GOP donors on Friday. “I heard it from other leaders around the world. They’re looking around realizing this ‘lead from behind’ mentality just doesn’t work. It’s just not working.”

However, a spokesperson at 10 Downing Street told Time: “The prime minister did not say that and does not think that.”

Cameron, leader of the United Kingdom’s Conservative Party, is in fact well known to be among President Obama’s closer allies and personal friends in the international sphere.

    We know that already because everything that comes out of Walker’s mouth is a lie. All he does is spew his rhetoric, playing to his corporate masters.

    This court jester is living proof of the total mockery American politics has become in the recent 15 years.

  • Budjob

    Walker is a sick,demented,NAZI bastard!!

  • EmilyBailey

    Why would Cameron even meet with this clown?

    • Eleanore Whitaker

      Actually, Cameron didn’t meet with Walker…It was the other way round. Walker insisted on meeting with Cameron. The new GOP ploy is to get the international community on board against Obama.

      It’s not happening. Why? Because in nearly every nation of Europe, they are laughing at right wingers in the US who show utter disrespect for their own president. In these countries, once a president is elected, disrespect is a sign of rage against your fellow voters.

    Walker’s lips must be moving ’cause there are lies all over the room.

    Wait! Are you trying to tell me that Scott Walker would lie? No, no, no, no, say it ain’t so.

    Straight out of the Walker playbook – divide & conquer.

      Well, talking about ‘dividing and conquering’, Scott Walker has succeeded in making Wisconsin lead the nation in destroying the middle class. A study done by the Pew Charitable Trust has shown that of the five states that have seen the biggest decline of people considered to be ‘middle class’, Wisconsin tops the list as the state that has seen the largest decline in people that qualify to be called ‘middle class’. He’s done that in a number of ways but mainly by working real hard to destroy unions within the state.

      Here is the Pew Chartitable Trusts’ list of states with the biggest declines in the middle class:

      State – Decline in Middle Class between 2013 and 2014

      1) Wisconsin – 5.7%

      2) Ohio – 5.2%

      3) ND – 5.1%

      4) VT – 5%

      5) NV – 5%
