    Union-busting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has changed his stance on organized labor — at least when it comes to the NFL.
    The conservative Republican, enraged that non-union replacement referees made a last-second controversial call that resulted in his beloved Green Bay Packers losing Monday night to the Seattle Seahawks, vented his frustrations Tuesday on Twitter.
    "After catching a few hours of sleep, the #Packers game is still just as painful," he tweeted. He ended his missive with the hashtag, "#Returntherealrefs."

    It hasn't changed, he was against public employee unions having collective bargaining. He never said anything about private employees and unions.

    This is amusing. Though of little import beyond that.

    After the botched call yesterday in the Green Bay/Seattle game, it seems that both Paul Ryan and Gov. Walker have called for the union referees to be returned to the game......

    Ryan, Walker weigh in on NFL ref lockout - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Now...........the NFL referees who are on strike are part of a union. I guess this means that Paul Ryan and Walker have changed their stance on getting rid of them.
