Fox News built up Scott Walker's appearance with Neil Cavuto heavily and made it all about the barbs being thrown around by his campaign and Donald Trump. "Coming up now, Gov. Scott Walker will answer Donald Trump's accusations!!!! Only instead of Walker standing up to the presumptive leader of the GOP class of 2016 forcefully, he hid behind a mealy mouthed defense of his record and refused to engage Trump directly.

Cavuto: All of a sudden you've been ensnared by Donald Trump, he built on what he's already said, tweeting today that when people found out how bad a job Scott Walker's done in Wisconsin, they won't be voting for him, massive deficit, bad jobs forecast a mess. What do you say?

Walker: I'll let Donald Trump speak for himself. I'm not going ot go after other candidates. I'm going to talk about what I'm for.

Cavuto: What he's saying governor is that it's not all that and that this surplus you alluded to 2.6 billion and now he says there's a deficit of more than 2 billion. What do you say?

Walker: Those are the Democratic talking points earlier this year....

Gov. Walker went on to list his record in which he has the midas touch, but consistently backed down from taking on The Donald head on. I'll let our very own Scott Walker expert, capper review Walker's braggadocio when it comes to his record, but I'll play the Republican game here and say that if he's not willing to stand up and fight against Donald Trump, then how can he stand up and fight ISIS?

Can you help us out?
