Republicans react to President Obama's visit


MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Republicans across the state issued statements regarding the visit by President Obama to Wisconsin Saturday.  Here are some of those comments.


Governor Scott Walker:

"With his visit today, President Obama admits he has a Wisconsin problem. This election must be about who can best lead America to overcome its greatest challenges, and on every important measure President Obama has failed us over the last four years. It's time for a change, and Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have the vision and experience required to confront our challenges and lead us toward prosperity for future generations." 


Tommy Thompson:  

"Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin and President Obama ran on a message of hope and change, but four years later the stark reality of our nation's economic state is setting in.  As a result of a failed near trillion-dollar stimulus and onerous regulations, Americans have seen higher unemployment and record-high debt." 

"Today's campaign stop only further contrasts the choice families in Wisconsin and across the country will have to make on Election Day.  They can either elect the same people who got us into this fiscal mess or look to proven leaders who will provide a plan for economic recovery. Just like Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan, I have a record of economic accomplishments. Instead of providing empty rhetoric like Congresswoman Baldwin and President Obama, I will provide sound solutions. There is too much at stake for Americans to choose anything less."
