Quotes from the news wire:
In Harris County there was a deputy sheriff who was shot 15 times -- 15 times, while he was filling up his gas tank. Why? Because the sheriff there said they believe that the suspect that went after him did so just because he was in uniform, in our society we need leaders, not just in elected office, we need clergy and business and other leaders in our community to say enough is enough.
I never talked about a wall of the north, I'm certainly not now. That's just what happens when things get run amok, this is just a joke in terms of how people react to things. I've said for some time that you need to secure the southern border. I've talked about the infrastructure, the personnel, the technology needed there. I've talked about enforcing the laws.
Because what we found is many of those same Independents turned around and vote — 11% of them voted for Barack Obama in the fall, they were, oddly enough, Obama-Walker voters, which politically makes no sense. Why? Because they were people hungry for leadership. They were frustrated because they felt that Romney hadn't offered a clear plan of what he would do.
The nation as a whole is not going to elect the next president, 12 states are, wisconsin's one of them. I'm sitting in another one right now, New Hampshire. There's going to be Colorado, where I was born, Iowa, where I lived, Ohio, Florida, a handful of other states. In total, it's about 11 or 12 states that are going elect the next president.
Governors aren't about foreign policy, they're about trade, which is exactly what I've done and many other great governors have done across the country, why would we be giving one of our highest honors, an official state visit, to a country that has been involved in something that directly has attacked our own government? It just doesn't make any sense. If anything, we should be taking them to the woodshed on this issue, not to the White House.
Given China's massive cyberattacks against America, its militarization of the South China Sea, continued state interference with its economy, and persistent persecution of Christians and human rights activists, President Obama needs to cancel the state visit, there's serious work to be done rather than pomp and circumstance. We need to see some backbone from President Obama on U.S.-China relations.
Think about this, we were told by Republican leaders during the campaign cycle last year that we just needed a Republican Senate to be elected to repeal Obamacare. Well, here we sit, you know both chambers of the United States Congress have been controlled since January by Republicans and yet there's not a bill on the President's desk to repeal Obamacare.
I think part of the reason why we see some of the things we see across this country are because people want to send a message, i talk to voters all the time in this state and around the country who said, 'We want to send a message to Republican leaders in Washington that when you make promises on the campaign trail, we wanna see it.' Whether it's repealing Obamacare or standing up against illegal immigration.
I've laid out a number of important reforms when it comes to immigration early this year, not only about securing the border but enforcing the law, in light particularly of what we've seen with sanctuary cities that we need to make sure that we enforce the law in every part of this country and not just in some parts or the other.
I've talked about how going forward I believe we should change the rules, the law but in terms of deporting the best thing we can do is enforce the law, we enforce the law and require employers across America to uphold the law -- which means an effective E-verify system -- I think that ultimately puts us in a better place.
I've got two boys in college now, but when they were in high school, we used to have a rule that they could have friends over, including girls, as long as the door to their room was open, to me, the provisions in this deal are like telling teenage boys not only can you have the door closed, but we gotta shout up the stairs before we walk up the steps, 'Hey, we're coming up to check and see what you're doing, I just want to give you advance notice,'.
We need to have a responsible way that is legal and constitutional, but a way that we can make sure that if someone is an enemy combatant, or aligned with an enemy combatant, the United States and the people of this great country, we've got to have the tools we need to prevent another act from happening.
