Scott Walker: Not in his own words

As quoted in Scott Walker, discussing abortion, says ultrasounds are “just a cool thing out there”.  (Washington Post, 5/28/2015)

This remark wasn't uttered just by chance.

Walker not alone in preferring his remarks tightly scripted.
Rick Perry’s voice softens when he talks about the joy he gets from looking at his iPad and seeing “that 20-week picture of my first grandbaby.” Marco Rubio says ultrasounds of his sons and daughters reinforced how “they were children — and they were our children.” Rand Paul recalls watching fetuses suck their thumbs. And Chris Christie says the ultrasound of his first daughter changed his views on abortion.

If they seem to be reading from the same script, they are.
