Walker discusses foreign policy in Iowa visit

During his speech at the Republican Party of Iowa Lincoln Dinner, Gov. Scott Walker talked about his recent trip to Israel and said that the United States needs to be a better ally to that country.

"It is time that we remind Israel that they have an ally in the United States," Walker said Saturday night. "In America they should know there is no greater friend, and for the rest of the world there is no greater enemy."

Walker also said the presidency needs to recognize "radical Islamic terrorism" by calling it that when it happens.

Walker also touted his ability to push through conservative legislation during his tenure. The crowd applauded Walker as he listed recent laws he and the state Legislature passed such as defunding Planned Parenthood, passing concealed carry, passing right to work, and pushing through voter ID laws.

"I tell you all that not to brag, or at least not much," Walker said. "But to tell you that a state as blue as Wisconsin, as a state that has not gone Republican since 1984, can make those sorts of changes, there's no doubt we can make those kind of changes."

Walker said that the Democrats need to talk more about economic growth, instead of government growth, along with economic and government reform.

"You listen to ... President Obama and Hilary Clinton you'd think the way to measure success is how many people are dependent on the government. I think we understand, a majority of us understand, the way to measure success is by just the opposite, by how many people are no longer dependent on the government," Walker said. "We need to reinforce that, that's the American dream right here in this great country."
