Scott Walker: Only I Can Meet With The Chinese

By Jeff Simpson

Not far removed from the hard working taxpayers of Wisconsin, sending Scott Walker on a campaign trip to China:

Gov. Scott Walker will lead a trade mission to China starting Friday, and he won't be alone among governors pitching their states' companies there.
Walker will lead a group of business leaders on his first overseas trade mission, a portion of which will involve group meetings with other governors also leading their own trade missions.
The choice of China for the governor's first trip is significant given the size of the market and the growing activity of Wisconsin companies exporting there: China didn't rank in the top 10 among export markets for Wisconsin businesses 10 years ago, but it has been climbing steadily, ranking third in 2012 behind Mexico and Canada.
Wisconsin exports to China totaled $1.5 billion last year, up 12% from 2011. China also ranks third among Wisconsin's agricultural export markets.

Now Chinese President Xi Jinping is planning a state visit to the United States to meet with President Obama and snot nose Scotty is double dog daring President Obama to refuse to meet

Gov. Scott Walker on Monday called for President Barack Obama to cancel Chinese President Xi Jinping’s state visit to the United States, urging the president to show "some backbone."
Jinping is scheduled to visit the U.S. in September.
Walker's statement comes in the midst of plummeting stock prices in the U.S., a result of global concerns tied to China's economic slowdown. The drop is being referred to in China as "Black Monday."
"Americans are struggling to cope with the fall in today's markets driven in part by China's slowing economy and the fact that they actively manipulate their economy. Rather than honoring Chinese President Xi Jinping with an official state visit next month, President Obama should focus on holding China accountable over its increasing attempts to undermine U.S. interests," Walker said in a statement
 Of course when we paid for Scott Walker to go there, he was singing a different tune:

Obama and Xi also had an informal meeting in California in 2013. The same year, Walker led his first overseas trade mission to China, meeting with Xi and opening a trade center to give Wisconsin businesses "expanded access to growing markets."
"In a lot of states in America, we’d like to have that kind of slow growth they are projecting" even in some of China’s slower-expanding regions, Walker said in an interview in Shanghai, Forbes reported in 2013. "We’re still very big on doing business in Shanghai in particular, but throughout the country."

In case you are wondering what President Xi looks like, or what "holding them accountabkle" in Scott walker's world, luckily for us all we have that captured:
