So Governor Walker, under siege in Wisconsin, can’t leave the State for Nat. Govs meeting in DC … and certainly couldn’t make Obama’s dinner for Govs at the White House? (Given Obama’s hesitancy to fully back the unions and the left, I imagine both men were relieved to avoid the meet-up.)
Impressively though, Walker — making the GOP meeting by video, and being the dark force he is — still manages to come off like Big Brother.
