Scott Walker is definitely playing hardball with Hillary Clinton right now. For the second time in just over a week, Governor Walker has hit Clinton for being old and tired.
Governor Walker (R-WI) was discussing the possibility of running for President in 2016 when he chose to bring up the aging former First lady.
“Whether it’s two years, six years, 20 years from now, because at 47, I mean I think about Hillary Clinton, I could run 20 years from now for president and still be about the same age as the former secretary of State is right now,” Governor Walker told a local Fox News station on Sunday.
(The actual quote doesn’t appear in the recorded interview – but can be read in the transcript.)
Mike Lowe: “Do you have a sense that this is your moment?”
Governor Walker: “To me, I’m not going to run just because of the pundits or anything else like that. The closer you get to something like that the more you realize — and I say this only half jokingly — that you have to be crazy to want to be president. And anyone who has seen pictures of this president or any of the former presidents can see the before and after. No matter how fit, no matter how young they are, they age pretty rapidly when you look at their hair any everything else involved with it. Whether it’s two years, six years or 20 years from now — because I think of Hillary Clinton. I could run 20 years from now and still be about the same age as the former Secretary of State is right now. The only thing I think someone is sane should want to be president, or should run for president not because they want to be or yearn to be, but because they feel called to. Right now, I still feel called to be the governor of the state of Wisconsin, and I’m going to do the best job I can over the next four years.”
Mike Lowe: “It has been said that this is a ‘no excuses’ four years for the Republicans. Do you agree with that? That you have to get done what you say you’re going to get done?”
Governor Walker: “Totally. I said that to some extent four years ago. I said ‘it’s put up for shut up time’ to the Assembly and Senate who at that time had just come into the majority. The same thing I said in a column the other day to my friends heading off to Washington. It’s put up or shut up time. Now is the time to lead.”
