    have terrible PR

    This is why Walker and the other 8 Nazgul can get away with this.  People are very much ready to blame someone and the public employees are a great target.

    Walker can still win, in fact he's won.  The unions will come out of this even weaker than they already are.  So even if he doesn't completely break them, he's won.

    What did I have to put up with last night ?  That idiot Gwen Ifill playing video of Chris Christie talking about $50 billion and $90 billion unfunded pension and health care liabilities for the unions WITHOUT ANY DISCUSSION OF WHETHER OR NOT IT'S TRUE.

    JC in a speedo, NPR is the "liberal media" ?!

      basic message translates to lots of people as "more money for less work."  Until they find a way to change that image, they will always face an uphill PR battle.  The skill set that enables a person to rise in the union movement doesn't necessarily translate into a warm and fuzzy PR picture that attracts uninvolved people to their cause.
