Scott Walker outsmarts CNBC’s interviewers who double-teamed him trying to get dirt

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker refused to let himself get backed into a corner when asked about Rudy Giuliani’s incendiary statements regarding Obama’s lack of love for America.

Instead, the presidential hopeful squeezed in the opportunity on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” to describe his own feelings about America.

CNBC host Becky Quick distinctly pointed out that Walker was only sitting a few chairs away from Giuliani the night he made the statement that has kept the mainstream media in a dizzying hubbub ever since.

“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani had said.

Trying to make a connection between the two politicians, Quick pressed for a statement from Walker.

“What do you think about those comments, because they are raising a stir,” she said.

“The mayor can speak for himself,” Walker said. “I’m not going to comment on what the President thinks or not. He can speak for himself as well.”

Perhaps the presidential hopeful was wondering why no one was asking him about his own thoughts, so Walker let her know.

“I’ll tell you, I love America.”

“There are plenty of people, Democrat, Republican, independent, and in between who love this country. I think we should talk about ways we love this country and that we feel passionately about America,” Walker said.

Co-host Andrew Sorkin didn’t like the dodge and continued hammering.

“But did you agree with those comments? Were you offended? What was your reaction when you heard them? Sorkin said.

“I’m in New York. I’m used to people saying things that are aggressive out there,” Walker said.

How does a seasoned show host respond to that?

They don’t.

The “Squawk Box” panel backed off of Walker not getting the sound bite they were hoping for.
