    You think his situation scares those people in DC?  I really don't.

    They may be wrong not to be scared, but I don't think that they perceive Wisconsin to be anything but an annoying anomaly.  The truth is that their policies are being enacted in the other states around Wisconsin without much hassle or popular complaints.  It may make them think that they need to be a bit stealthier, but I don't think that it puts them off continuing to roll out their plan...

      I'm reading the polls in WI and they seem to be saying folks don't like intransigence when it stops the government from working.

      If that's not a model the Dems can replicate on the national level, I don't know what is.

      And while I know that Boehner is stupid, if I can read those polls and draw that conclusion, I'm pretty certain he or the people around him can too.

      In fact, I think the Pres. should be out in front of the Wisconsin situation pounding the lectern, but it seems pretty quiet in the Oval Office.

      This issue has put WI, and maybe OH, out of the game for a presidential republican candidate in 2012. Also the House representatives of the Republicans in WI will know that if those recalls go through they are gonna have to sweat bullets in a bad environment and probably walk sideways with a hated governor.
