Walker discusses growth, reform, safety at SRLC in Oklahoma

Walker hit on themes of growth, reform and safety while talking to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City. 

The guv tip-toed around a presumed presidential run, commenting Thursday that his concerns with the way the country is being run are the "reason why I'm thinking about what I'm thinking about." He again said no announcement will be made until after the state budget is complete. 

Walker's discussion of safety and criticism of President Obama's foreign relations decisions drew the largest applause from the Oklahoma crowd. He took shots at Obama for calling "ISIS a JV squad, Yemen a success story and Iran a place we can do business with." 

"Once and for all, we need going forward a commander in chief in this country who will tell it like it is," Walker said, "and lay out that radical Islamic terrorism is a threat to us all, and we're going to do something to stop it." 

The guv began his speech with a rundown of his credentials in Wisconsin, discussing changes his administration has made to government and lawsuit regulations. He drew applause from the crowd when he noted his administration defunded Planned Parenthood and other anti-abortion moves. 

"If all those things can happen like a state like Wisconsin, there's no doubt, with the right leadership, not just in state's across the country but in our nation's capital, with the right leadership, we can move America in the right direction," Walker said. 

He said the country needs someone to lower the tax burden, control government regulations and repeal Obamacare. Walker also said it should be America's goal to help people support themselves rather than relying on subsidies. 

"In America, we celebrate our independence from the government," he said, "not our dependence on it."
