Scott Walker Meet-Up With Obama Sign Of Strength, Not Weakness
While his gubernatorial opponent Mary Burke will be “out of town” when President Obama hits Wisconsin today, Governor Scott Walker will greet him at the airport to discuss Wisconsin’s propane shortage, according to local news reports. Good move in the optics department.
It’s refreshing to see a high visibility conservative GOP governor and prospective 2016 GOP candidate demonstrate the simple courtesy of greeting the President when he arrives in-state.
Says Walker: “I’m the governor, so whether I agree or disagree with everything he’s done as president, it’s important for me on behalf of all the people of Wisconsin to officially greet the president, to thank him for his presence here.”
Good for him. This conveys strength — not weakness. Yet another reason to respect and like Scott Walker’s approach to governance.
