  •  Walker CAN'T compromise... (5+ / 0-)

    He's placed a his bet and he can't back down from the position he's taken without becoming a laughingstock with the legislators. He's bet his entire governorship on this.

    It's an all or nothing proposition for Walker now. If he loses he's done.

    •  precisely. (1+ / 0-)

      he's painted himself into a corner, not recently, but by design the whole time.

      He wanted this to be a nationally televised fight.  He wanted to be catapulted to the spotlight and gain notoriety (for what reason(s) are left to be calculated), and he knew he could never back down, from the beginning.

      He saw what the air-traffic controller's strike did for Reagan, and he's in it until the end.
