The one thing that has me worried is this.
Our side has boxed itself into a corner (by agreeing to all of Walker’s economic demands in advance). That means at any time of his own choosing, Walker can walk away from this mess by “giving in”, allowing collective bargaining to continue, and taking full credit for being a tough negotiator who brought the evil unions to heel and balanced the budget. And don’t expect any help from Obama or very many of the other Democrats. We need more people in the media willing to call the Wisconsin 14 heroes, not cowards, instead of avoiding that issue. The media will have him smelling like a rose if he does.
In other words, our side’s strategy is based on their side’s continuing to be stupid. What do we do if they wise up? All we’re left with is hoping they don’t.
How do we build on this if that happens?
