Walker: Hillary Clinton Embodies Everything Bad about Washington

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) appeared on ABC’s This Week, and explained that Hillary Clinton’s biggest weakness is that she embodies everything that is wrong with Washington.

Walker explained that Clinton is an entrenched “part of the Washington structure,” a structure that believes in a “top-down, government-knows-best, go-along-to-get-along mentality.”

Echoing the sentiments of Senator Rand Paul who recently stated that Clinton is “yesterday’s news,” Walker believes that the American people want “fresh, new ideas,” not what politicians in Washington have been telling them is best for their well-being.

Watch Scott Walker’s statements on Hillary Clinton …

Via the Daily Caller:

GUEST HOST MARTHA RADDATZ: The Republican nominee could be in a race against Hillary Clinton. Let’s just say it’s you. What would you say to Hillary Clinton? What is the best case against Hillary Clinton?

WALKER: Well, I think the biggest thing I hear from Americans applies in the primary and the general, if I were a candidate, if I ultimately had earned the nomination. And that is, I think people want to look to the future. They don’t want to go back in time. They don’t want to repeat what we had in the past. We need a candidate not of the 20th century, but of the 21st century. Ironically, that’s what her husband brought to the table in 1992 when he picked Al Gore.

RADDATZ: What marks the difference between those two candidates?

WALKER: I think there’s a clear difference. I think former Secretary of State Clinton embodies all the things we think of Washington. She lives here, she worked here, she’s part of the Washington structure for years, not just as a Democrat but across the spectrum. I think Washington represents the top-down, government-knows-best, go-along-to-get-along mentality. I think Americans overwhelmingly want fresh, new ideas that build the economy from the ground up. They want to put the power back in the hands of the people, not just at the state and local level, but of individual Americans. I don’t think they want government telling them what to do. And that’s what I’ve been advocating for a long time.

Do you believe Clinton embodies everything that is wrong in Washington today?
