Wisconsin Republicans have yet to nominate a candidate for governor. Indeed, the state's primary is not until Sept. 14. But two national GOP heavyweights -- former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich -- are bullish on the prospects of Scott Walker, the self-described, brown-bag-packing county executive of Milwaukee.Yeah, that's great and all, but he's no hell-raiser.
"The guy is a fantastic candidate," Bush said. "The event that we did together, he gave a stump speech that sounded like it was the last three days of the campaign. I mean, he was on fire. It was, it was, he's the real deal."
Having listened to and followed this guy on the campaign trail for four years, sure he'd be a Republican in office who is somewhat credible (see no college degree, Milwaukee=center of the universe attitude) and likeable, but he's a SNOOZER on the stump.
I wish I had heard the speach Bush is talking about...I somehow find it hard to believe.
