Scott Walker Obviously Isn’t Too Happy With The Romney Campaign
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker clearly isn’t happy about how things are going over at Team Romney lately:
Echoing his sentiment from a Friday interview, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said Sunday he wants to see “more passion” from Mitt Romney and more of the enthusiasm he witnessed when Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) was first tapped by the former governor to be his running mate.
“I want to see fire in the belly,” Walker said of Romney on “Fox News Sunday,” adding that he wants to see the Republican nominee “lit up and ready to go.”
“I think you’ve got to get off the heels and get out and charge forward,” the Wisconsin governor also said.
Walker made similar comments on Friday:
In an interview with Charlie Sykes, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan should have a more substantive role in Mitt Romney’s campaign.
“I was enthused when Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan because I thought that was a signal that this guy was getting serious, he was getting bold,” Walker said. “I just haven’t seen that kind of passion I know that Paul has transferred over to our nominee.” The governor suggested that “pushback from some of the folks in the national campaign” was restraining the Wisconsin congressman from making detailed policy arguments.
Walker also suggested that while Romney was in sync with Ryan on policy, he could learn something from his running mate about how to talk about it. “They need to have more of him rub off on Mitt, because I think Mitt thinks that way but he’s gotta be able to articulate that,” he said.
Things are not going well for the Romney campaign, and Republicans are starting to notice.
