There are only a handful of politicians who I believe have the fortitude and record to take on the entrenched self interest and good ole boys network in Washington D.C.
Governor Scott Walker is one of them. Not only did he defeat progressives in a blue state, he did so three times without compromising his conservative principles. And believe me, people respect a man who stands for what he believes in.
Here is an excerpt from the Hill.com on Governor Scott Walker’s reception in Iowa:
The Wisconsin governor, in rolled-up shirtsleeves, paced the stage as he blasted big government and touted a long list of conservative reforms he's pushed through in blue Wisconsin.
The governor also showed a rhetorical flourish that's largely been absent from his previous campaigns, drawing the crowd to its feet multiple times.
"There's a reason we take a day off to celebrate the 4th of July and not the 15th of April," he said, almost yelling as his voice grew hoarse. "Because in America we value our independence from the government, not our dependence on it."
And then this:
When he said he won reelection as Milwaukee County Executive in an area where President Obama won by a two-to-one margin, some in the audience gasped.
"If you get the job done the voters will actually stand up with you," he said before contrasting his record with Washington's deadlock.
Yes, voters will stand with a principled, conservative politician who practices what he preaches. It’s too bad we didn’t have one in the past two presidential elections
