It's a liberal cliche to ask conservatives why they "hate" the poor, minorities or personal freedom, so it's not surprising that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker endured that question in YouTube chat, Wednesday. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel highlighted "Fuzzy Duck," who inquired via Twitter, "Why do you hate education?"
In the video, Walker began, "Today we've got another question from Twitter and it comes from someone with the name @FuzzyDuck from Madison." (There's just something amusing about the nature of social media: Not many governors have reason to utter the name "Fuzzy Duck.")
Walker continued, "The question is simply this: Brown Bag question for @GovernorWalker: Why do you hate education?" Well, for us, the answer is I love education. I love education from the public sector as well as those other opportunities we have in carter and choice schools." (For more of the governor's response and to watch the video, see below.)
