One of the strangest things about Republicans campaigning this year is that they keep talking about President Barack Obama like he's another Jimmy Carter or second-term George W. Bush.
In reality, Obama has an approval rating right now that's above 52%, which is fairly strong for a president in his final year of office.
Nonetheless, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker decided that linking Obama to Hillary Clinton was the ultimate closing argument for this year's presidential race, as he posted a tweet on Tuesday morning warning people that "if you like the past eight years, vote for Hillary Clinton."
If you like the past 8 years, vote @HillaryClinton. https://t.co/cQEtIgPsEz— Scott Walker (@Scott Walker)1478008411.0
The reaction on Twitter was swift -- and it probably wasn't what Walker was expecting.
