    The same as when they ran Trump

    He hates the right people and loves guns.

    T&T (or TT) have never lost any such Faith. They never had it in the first place. They compare democracy to consulting barnyard oxen as to when they should be yoked to the plow.

    Walker is inexperienced in politics. There are times when he speaks that he makes no sense. Walker is also at a disadvantage of being Trump endorsed. A lot of Republicans blame Trump for the loss of Georgia’s two senate seats back in the January 2021 runoff. Hence, in the Republican primaries this year, they went for two of Trump enemies, Kemp and Raffensperger for Governor and Secretary of State. These are Republicans saying no to Trump.


    Warnock has his problems as being viewed negatively by a lot of Georgians, a decent Republican candidate other than Walker probably would have beaten him. I have my doubts a Trump endorsed, chosen candidate will. Independents here don’t like Trump much which is benefitting Warnock although independents dislike him also. This is a case of voting for who you disliked the least or want to lose the least. It’d be great if the Libertarian won, but that won’t happen. Warnock will probably win, he’s ahead today in the polls. But his win won’t be because a majority of Georgians want him to win. When it comes to between Walker and Warnock, Warnock is the candidate Georgians want to lose the least.

    WTF is wrong with Walker? He's got some serious mental issues to work through but not in the Senate.

    He could only run the ball out of the "I" formation and he's dumber than a box of rocks. And that's just a fraction of what's wrong with him.

    You've never heard him speak? Well, you're in for a treat when he "debates" Warnock.

    How he turned out to be a complete moron is a mystery.

    Which American president was one of the absolute worst public speakers?

    Jefferson.

    and I doubt you would label him "dumb"

    Not wanting to vote for a man because of how he sounds makes it very much on topic.

    Oh, I see. He's as smart as Thomas Jefferson!

    *LOL*

    Has Hershel Walker authored any great works, too?

    How he "sounds"? The man's an idiot. It's what's in his empty head and how it comes out of his mouth, not "how he sounds".

    I never claimed that. Merely pointing out that speaking ability or the lack thereof has nothing to do with intelligence.

    Oh, Christ. As Forrest Gump says "stupid is as stupid does".

    He lied about his grades. That's stupid. He lied about "working with law enforcement. He lied about not having illegitimate children. He can't put a sentence together.

    That adds up to "dumb". But he's more than just "dumb"---the man's a ****ing idiot.

    He said this mind-blowingly idiotic statement:

    "Since we don't control the air, our good air decided to float over to China's bad air, so when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move," Walker said. "So it moves over to our good air space. Then, now, we got we to clean that back up."

    Yeah. You're right. He's really a smart guy. As you alluded to, he's as smart as Thomas Jefferson.

    You're incapable of understanding English, aren't you. It's not how his voice sounds, ferfucksakes. He's illiterate. He can barely speak English while he's babbling incomprehensibly.,

    You are lying. I never said or alluded that I merely used Jefferson to illustrate the point that speaking ability is NOT related to intelligence.

    So he lies from time to time. Everybody does. Trump, Biden, everyone.

    Trump lying is well known. But remember that Biden had to drop out of the presidential race in 1988 because he stole a British speakers work and used it as his own.

    You have actual proof that Walker is illiterate?

    Didn't think so.

    Oh, I'm sure that this is just an example of his "sounding funny" and not evidence of stupidity:

    Asked if he believes there should be new gun laws in the wake of the Texas shooting, Georgia Senate GOP nominee Herschel Walker told me in ATL: “What I like to do is see it and everything and stuff.” He didn’t engage further.

    That was perhaps the worst "argument" I've ever seen here. You actually tried to suggest that Herschel Walker just wasn't a good public speaker. Like freaking Thomas Jefferson!

    That was ridiculous.

    Can you tell me what future U.S. president said this REPEATEDLY in a speech? Without doing a search for it?

    "The U.S. has much to offer the third World War."

    He's secretly super smart! He could've written the Declaration of Independence. Like Thomas Jefferson!

    Was it Thomas Jefferson. As you claimed, Herschel Walker is as smart as he is.
