Krauthammer: Cruz Needs to 'Walk the Walk'

By    |   Monday, 23 March 2015 08:50 PM

First-term Sen. Ted Cruz needs to follow his own advice and "walk the walk," conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Special Report."

Cruz on Monday became the first Republican to officially declare his intention to seek the White House in 2016, and Krauthammer acknowledged that Cruz has an appeal as "the constitutional conservative" and "the guy with the liquid tongue" in the race.

But a lot of other candidates can make similar claims, Krauthammer said, and Cruz will be facing the problem of being a senator – and a freshman senator at that.

"We already tried a first-term senator," Krauthammer said, referring to President Barack Obama, with whom neither Krauthammer nor Cruz is enthused.

"Cruz talks about you have to walk the walk rather than just talk the talk, you have to have done something," Krauthammer said. "But that’s not his record in the Senate. He's a good rhetorician."

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, on the other hand, has a proven track record, Krauthammer said.

"He doesn't have the fluency that Cruz does," he said. "He's made a lot of stumbles."

But when Walker says he took on liberals and won, he makes a strong argument, Krauthammer said.
