    The beatdown that Walker is taking in Wisconsin will have a ripple effect. "My way or the highway" politics is not an effective bargaining position

    Let's analyze this.....

    The Tea Party is soliciting more donations.

    Almost as a RULE, when political organizations do that, they include some type of cause to stir their supporters into action.

    So, it's par for the course to mentions some "crisis" in order to get people to contribute.

    Their crisis is one of a Governor that's doing the bidding of the people against multiple special interest groups (the unions....of which the Teacher's Union is the #1 special interest group in the USA in terms of campaign contributions).

    Now the Democrats, on the other hand have a crisis too. That's one of deliberately NOT listening to the voice of the people and passing ObamaCare and out of control deficit spending.

    So when people go to the polls to vote, who do you think they'd be more inclined to vote for? The folks that took some heat because they stood firm on their principals, did the uncomfortable things that were needed, and listened to the people OR the folks that flatly refused to listen to the people?

    If Walker were in that much trouble, he'd have backed off.

    He's not in trouble.. but the Fleebaggers are. Of course the "down is up" crowd on these boards are 180 degrees out of phase with reality, as usual.

    Does all the "drama" in our U.S politics, especially the hypocrisy and name-calling, tend to turn off young Americans?
