    I think its a tough call. That's why I thought about have the cabinet secretaries speak out. It would raise the pressure on Walker and encourage the protesters while still leaving the Administration a way out. ("Secretary Solis is doing her job, speaking up for the rights of American workers. As President its my job to be president of all Americans while cabinet secretaries advise me of particular points of view...." and on-going verbiage.)

    This may not be the best idea, and your point about it becoming a Fox vs. Admin. battle is well taken. But I thought I'd put it out there. If the Dept. of Labor and Dept. of Agriculture phone lines would get bombed by Kossacks and by the protesters calling from Capitol square it would raise the heat on the Obama Administration, get them to focus on the people.

    Shalom.

      day Department of Labor is that it is merely a functionary of the corporate bosses these days.  One would think that this Administration would have changed that, but the thinking in the party elite in both parties have pretty much accepted the notion that government is to follow business and not the other way around.
