Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Saturday declined to answer basic questions about President Obama's faith and commitment to the nation. "I don't know," Walker said when The Washington Post asked him if the president is Christian. "I've actually never talked about it or I haven't read about that." In a separate weekend interview with The Associated Press, the prospective 2016 candidate also shrugged off a question about Rudy Giuliani's claim Obama does not love America, saying, "I've never asked him so I don't know." A Walker spokesperson later clarified the governor thinks Obama is indeed Christian, and that he was simply trying to avoid answering "gotcha questions."
