Walker Okay with Secret Surveillance. We're not Surprised.

The Walker Authority, as like to call them, apparently isn't shy about getting behind spying on Americans. While most people see a huge problem with the FISA court and the evolving Bush policy, now on steroids, Walker sees power and a way to keep it:
jsonline: Gov. Scott Walker, on stage with other potential 2016 presidential candidates -- said Thursday he did not see a shift toward libertarianism among grass roots Republicans over national surveillance programs.

“I see a few loud and vocal people talking in Washington and I don’t think that necessarily reflects where the party is,” Walker said, according to this New York Times story.
Walker said the same thing when hundreds of thousands of protesters came out against his policies, and recall forms came in listing nearly a million signatures. It's always those few "loud and vocal people" who don't reflect Scott Walker's agenda. Take Walker's word for it, everybody else stands with him:
Walker made the comment after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a forceful defense for the surveillance programs started by President George W. Bush after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and continued by President Barack Obama. Christie’s comments were a pointed rebuke of politicians like U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, another potential Republican presidential candidate in 2016.
