“I think what we’ve shown in Wisconsin is that it’s not about austerity — it’s about reform,” Walker said. “And what I mean by that is if we just come in our state and cut things across the board that means you cut your priorities as much as you cut things that aren’t quite as important. We reined in collective bargaining. We put more power back in the hands of the taxpayer at the state and the local level. I think nationally we need that same sort of reform no matter who is running for president. I’d slash the marginal tax rates for everyone across the board — go to a simpler, more flat tax.”

We should hasten to add that, in stark contrast to #OccupyResoluteDesk, Walker actually has a record of, you know, reforming.

    What Governor Walker actually has a record of is success! He took a budget which was going to be well into the red, and balanced it, without huge tax increases.

    Here in the Keystone State, Governor Tom Corbett did the same thing, by cutting the spending that Ed Rendell left. It was decidedly unsexy, and Mr Corbett doesn’t have a great reputation in the state for doing that, and is in trouble in his re-election campaign, but he succeeded in doing what he said he was going to do.

    As far as I am concerned, I don’t care about flashy and I don’t care about sexy and I don’t care about charisma; I do care about success.

    Right on! Nothing convinces quite like common sense, courage and proven success. He’s one of the brightest contrasts to the failure and corruption of the left. But what impresses me most is that they couldn’t take him down. And that’s exactly the example and the hope we need to win.

    As much as I like what he’s saying and has done, I am wondering about his foriegn policy ideas before 2016. The need for leadership is important. I hope his willful handling of the unions is how he’d work on the international stage.

    See the exciting new tear-jerker, “Pay It Backward”. Haley Joel Osment plays a twenty-something working three jobs, struggling to make ends meet as his SS, Medicare, and FICA taxes continue to rise year after year while Babyboomers (who once chanted, “trust no one over 30”) retire in style to Florida golf communities and zip about the country in $100K+ motor homes voting for more and increased entitlements. As part of a junior college project Osment’s character starts a movement to end government transfers.

    That’s what I’ve been wondering about too. Here’s an interview he did that gives at least a good impression of his perception and intent. I would like to hear any serious candidate actually name who they believe America’s allies and enemies are. That was one thing Allen West did totally right including our domestic enemies.

    He can talk the talk, which is a step in the right direction. Can he walk the walk?

    I believe one of his strongest assets is that he is and has been credible and even in the face of great adversity done what he said he was going to do. That’s goes a long way toward confidence that he would deal the same way on a bigger stage.

    Almost every President “lacks experience on an international level,” with only two — Richard Nixon and the elder George Bush — having any at all over the past half century, before actually becoming President.

    And if that’s your concern, the 2016 (presumed) candidate who has the most foreign policy experience is the repugnant Hillary Clinton. Of course, it’s bad experience, but that’s not how it’ll be sold.

    Walker, like other Republican governors, has a record of successful reform, mindful stewardship of the economy, and effective management of a hostile bureaucracy. These are precisely the qualities needed in a President.

    When he starts talking about flat taxes, which could eliminate the need for roughly 95% of the IRS employees, it’s like ice cream for dessert.

    Presidential elections are never about foreign policy. Bad decisions can hurt a reelection campaign, but the bottom line is always domestic, and usually economic.
