The secret’s out. (Well, it’s never really been much of a secret.) We Chicks LOVE Gov. Scott Walker. Did you all see him manhandle Chris Wallace over the abortion issue? If not, you should watch that and come back, because it’s completely awesome. And you really need to see it to appreciate the rest of this post.
The Tampa Bay Times sat down with Walker Friday morning and asked him about former Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush (probably the least favorite candidate with the conservative base). This could have easily turned into another “gotcha” question from the media. If he bashed Bush, he would’ve come off like a pompous jerk. If he praised him, he’d come off as another moderate. Look what he had to say.
"We had Bob Dole, John McCain, Mitt Romney. If it's just whoever's next up, that hasn't worked so well for the Republican Party in the past. … Jeb's a good man. You're not going to hear me speak ill will of Jeb. He's a friend of mine, He called me two days before (announcing) his PAC, I think highly of him. I just think voters are going to look at this and say, 'If we're running against Hillary Clinton, we'll need a name from the future – not a name from the past – to win.' "
Walker is a class act.
