It is about that time. Mitt Romney is beginning to vet potential running mates many names are being thrown around. Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio are both strong, worthy candidates, but there is no doubt in my mind that Romney should select Scott Walker as his Vice President.
Coming off of a historical gubernatorial recall election, Scott Walker has momentum. After such a long, gruesome fight, Walker is in a position to exert more power than he ever has before. The man took on the unions, and the unions lost, BIG time. Scott Walker squashed the greatest liberal cause of 2012 thus far.
Many Americans are familiar with Walker now after the highly followed and publicized recall election, and voters know exactly where Governor Walker stands on the major issues of the coming election. Voters have had weeks of coverage of the deficit reduction and union-combating policies that Walker enacted while governor of Wisconsin.
Better yet, how has Obama reacted to Scott Walker. The answer is simple: he has not. Obama was nowhere to be seen during the recall election. He wanted to stay as far away from Wisconsin as possible. For a man that pledged to stand by the unions, Obama let the unions fall.
The question must be asked: Why did Barack Obama not support a Democratic gubernatorial candidate in a state where the president had quite a large lead in the polls?
Barack Obama is scared of Scott Walker and the courage that he brought to the office of Governor of Wisconsin. For once, someone told the liberal wacks and union thugs “NO!” Obama witnessed how strong of an executive that Walker is, and he did not want to become involved at all.
If I were Romney, I would send Obama running. Bring Scott Walker further onto the national stage and send the message to the left and the unions that there are things that need to be done in the federal government, and a Romney/Walker administration is an administration that will get things done.
Scott Walker is a house hold name right now, make it even bigger. Romney needs to make Walker the next Vice President of the United States of America. Walker can be Romney’s bulldog, not afraid to take on whatever challenge comes his way. Obama, Democrats, and the unions are terrified of people like Scott Walker currently.
Don’t let them get comfortable.
