With numbers down, Walker adds bite to New Hampshire message

Ashland, N.H. Scott Walker said Thursday that, as president, he'd light a fire under both parties in Washington.

But first, he's going to have to light a fire under his own campaign.

With his presidential standing and his home-state approval both in decline, Walker is scrambling to tap into the anti-establishment anger and frustration boosting GOP "outsiders" Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina.

"It's a frustration I share, an anger I share," Walker said at one stop on a three-day swing through the state that holds the nation's first primary.

"I'll take on the big government special interests. I'll take on the other party. I'll take on the leadership of my own party," he said at another.

One new wrinkle is how Walker recounts the story of his battle with public employee unions. In an effort to tout his anti-establishment credentials, he now stresses the resistance he met not just from Democrats but also from members of his own party in Wisconsin.

"A lot of people don't know this," Walker told about 200 people at a town hall meeting here. "The establishment in my own party really wasn't that eager to reform things either," he said of Republicans that took control of both legislative chambers after the same 2010 election that put Walker in office.

"You see, they kind of liked the title, they liked the position, they like the bigger office in the Legislature," he said. "They didn't want to rattle things up too much. They didn't want to shake the boat. We didn't give them an option; we said, 'That's what you've got to do.'"

1. It is becoming increasingly clear that Scott Walker doesn't care about being Governor at all.


Why else would he throw his closest allies under his presidential campaign bus? Who the hell does he think he's going to be working with if he doesn't become President. Oh, that's right, Huckabee and Palin and all of the other has-been Republicans on Fox.
