CPAC audience to Scott Walker: “Run, Scott, Run”Posted by Mona Salama on February 26, 2015
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker wasted no time taking jabs at President Obama’s leadership Thursday evening at CPAC. Wearing no suit jacket and tie with his sleeves rolled up, Walker paced the stage building momentum and wilding up the crowd of all ages.
“We have a president who measures success in government by how many people are dependent on the government, we should measure success by just the opposite,” Walker told the crowd as he gained strides, hinting he is ready to take over the White House in 2016.
Some of the audience erupted “Run, Scott, Run” as he answered questions at the end of his speaking session. He also encountered a protester who shouted when he mentioned unions. “Apparently the protestors from Wisconsin followed me here, but you know what, those voices can’t drown out the voices of the millions of Americans who want us to step up for the hard-working taxpayers.”
Noting his accomplishment of education reforms and the fights with labor unions in 2011, Walker stated this has prepped him to be a commander-in-chief. “If I can take on 100,000 protestors, I can do the same across the world,” Walker answered in regards to a question about ISIS.”
Democrats have now misconstrued Walker’s words and was quick to bash the statement. This can be problematic and controversial going forward. Continuing on touting his record in sync with loud cheers from the audience, Walker mentioned his regulatory reform, enacting concealed carry as well as passing a law for voter ID. “We were a state that had been taxed and taxed and today I am proud to say after four years as governor, we have reduced the burden on hardworking taxpayers by nearly $2 Billion. How many other governors can say that? “
On foreign policy, Walker gave small details as his credentials of foreign policy experience is lacking in a time where it has been the main focus during heightened problems that are occurring. “We need a leader who will stand with Israel and one who understands that when the Prime Minister a longtime ally asks to come to Congress, we should show him and his country respect.”
Walker has become the top Republican must watch rising star in recent months. Preliminary polls have Walker either first place or second to Jeb Bush in 2016 GOP presidential candidate choice.
