Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Says Romney Campaign Needs to Show More 'Enthusiasm'
Romney supporter and Wisconsin governor, Scott Walker, joined Fox News Sunday from Milwaukee. Gov. Walker has been critical of Mitt Romney, saying that he expected the former Massachusetts governor to run a bolder, reform agenda campaign and so far he has not. He reiterated that sentiment today, adding, “I’d just like to see more of the enthusiasm that I saw when [Romney and Ryan] were together early on. […] I think that’s what will draw people to Mitt Romney.”
Romney came under fierce criticism for comments he made about 47 percent of the country being dependent on government and viewing themselves as victims. Gov. Walker responded, “Most people I talk to including people who are unemployed today here in the state of Wisconsin don’t want to be. They’d like to go out and grab a job in the private sector, they’d like to be able to put food on the table
and clothes on the backs of their kids and live a better life.
Gov. Walker surmised that what it comes down to is the stark contrast between President Obama and Mitt Romney’s messages. Chris Wallace noted that Romney seemed to be writing off 47 percent of the country as entitled and a group that he doesn’t believe will vote for him regardless. Gov. Walker said, “We need Mitt Romney out there making the case about how his leadership is not only going to ultimately win this election, but more importantly how his leadership is going to put many of the people today who are dependent on the government for unemployment [benefits] back to work.”
