    Scott Walker Disagrees With Mitt Romney On First Responders As 'Big Government'

    Now isnt this interesting...The DPF conservative spin on this should be very entertaining lol

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said on Sunday that he disagreed with Mitt Romney's recent statement that the governor's win in last week's recall election showed that voters oppose hiring more teachers, firefighters and police officers. "I think, in the end, the big issue is that the private sector still needs more help," he told Bob Schieffer on CBS's "Face the Nation." "The answer's not more big government. I know in my state, our reforms allowed us to protect firefighters, police officers and teachers. That's not what I think of when I think of big government."
    Romney said on Friday that President Barack Obama missed the message from Wisconsin's recall election, which was held after outrage from some voters over Walker's law limiting collective bargaining rights of public sector workers.

    "He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers," Romney said. "Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It's time for us to cut back on government and help the American people."
    Schieffer asked Walker whether he agreed that his victory showed "the American people want fewer cops and fewer teachers and fewer firemen."
    "Well, I think it's slightly different," Walker replied. "I think in our case what they wanted is people willing to take on the tough issues, not only here in Wisconsin but across the country. And I think Governor Romney's got a shot, if the R next to his name doesn't just stand for Republican, it stands for reformer."

    Well, at least Walker didn't say "Romney's dead to me."

    If you read the article he right properly spanked him...you have to take into context that this election is right around the corner...and Romny was hailing walkers win as somehow vindicating him...and walker slapped his bottom for him...I took it as walker knows hes not out of the woods next election and he seized an opportunity to try and repair his image...he is no shoo in for re election in wisconsin...the democrats choose the wrong guy TWICE to run against him

    Ohh Romney please keep mentioning Wisconsin and Walker.. and lets get all the facts out about that state and Walker... Will do wonders to your campaign being linked to a state with piss poor job creation, mass budget problems and of course a corruption scandal that is surrounding Walker...

    I think more and more that Romney hired the DNC as his campaign manager...

    Walker is dead man walking.. I suspect he will be forced to resign with in a year. You dont just transfer 100k to a legal defence fund unless you have something to hide.

    I dont know about all that pete...and I wouldnt accuse him of anything until everything is out in the open...I doubt he will resign before his term is up...but he has no guarantee of re election...

    Considering how many people in his administration and close to him have either gotten deals for testimony or are in prison, then it is only a matter of time. Dont people have to resign if they are indicted or arrested?

    Well the way I see it is - the Repubs aren't walking "lockstep". I like it.

    Some areas in the country may need more state employess, but not all.

    Anyway, growing public sector jobs is not going to help the economy because you need private sector people with jobs to pay the taxes to finance these public sector jobs, yes?
