Republican presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney should fire his “tepid” advisers and hire Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign team, asserts talk-radio host Michael Savage.
On his top-rated national show today, Savage directed a message to Romney: “Learn something” from Walker, who Tuesday night became the first governor to survive a recall election after labor unions and Democratic activists mounted fierce opposition to his successful effort to rein in spending by curbing the power of public employee unions.
“Learn that Scott Walker says it like it is, and stop mincing words,” Savage said.
As WND reported, Savage warned last month that the political gurus who advised Romney to condemn a plan by a “super PAC” to use Barack Obama’s influential relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright against him in the 2012 campaign will lead the former Massachusetts governor to the same fate as John McCain four years ago.
Commenting on Walker’s victory, Savage said that despite the media’s protection of Obama, in virtually every chance voters have had to weigh in, “the people have voted down the imposter and his policies.”
“There’s no question in my mind that this victory in Wisconsin spells the end of Obama’s tyranny over the American people – that is unless they can get enough illegal aliens to vote as many times as possible,” Savage told his “Savage Nation” listeners.
But he insisted that Romney must “stop playing the middle and start playing like Walker.”
“[Walker] is simply a fiscal conservative who risked everything for the sake of doing what was right for his state and in this case, probably, for the country,” Savage said.
The talk host noted the Republican governor survived a recall election in a Democrat-controlled state with a long history of far-left activism.
Savage urged Romney to get rid of “those Brutuses who are running you off the rails with their tepid campaign.”
“Tear down that wall, Mr. Romney,” he said. “Tear down that wall of those Republican advisers who are destroying your campaign, and go hire Scott Walker’s manager.”
‘The people’s prayers sustained him’
Romney also could learn from Walker’s willingness to talk about his faith, Savage said, noting that after his victory, Walker spoke out about the importance of people praying for him.
“Here’s a man who said the people’s prayers sustained him,” Savage said. “On the other hand,” referring to Obama, “we have a narcissistic atheist.”
“Romney is obviously a very religious man who’s been intimidated by Wolf Blitzer and other leftists into not even mentioning his faith,” Savage said, referring to the CNN host.
“The Savage Nation” airs live Monday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern. It can be heard online through stations such as KSTE in Sacramento.
