DescriptionMitt Romney would love to associate himself with Scott Walker's victory in Wisconsin on Tuesday, but Walker is not so sure Romney gets it.

On Friday, Romney spoke out against Obama's plan to hire more government workers.

He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It's time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.

That's not "the message of Wisconsin," as Walker sees it.

Appearing today on Face the Nation, Walker rejected the idea that Wisconsin's decision was against the hiring of the government workers Romney invoked.

In my state, I know our reforms allowed us to protect firefighters, police officers and teachers. That's not what I think of when I think of big government.
