President Obama is visiting Scottwalkerstan today, which may be considered ground zero in the war against unions and, not surprisingly, Governor Walker has decided not to accompany the president on his tour of a union-backed factory he name dropped in the State of the Union.
There has been a change of plans in today’s meeting between President Obama, who is visiting Wisconsin to promote his economic policies, and the state’s conservative star Gov. Scott Walker.
Walker’s office has confirmed that due to a stomach flu, Walker will no longer accompany Obama on a tour of the local Master Lock factory, at which Obama is scheduled to speak in the afternoon. [...]
Obama name-dropped Master Lock in his State of the Union address in January, as an example of jobs coming back to America — and unionized jobs, at that.
Walker may or may not be sick, but if you truly believe that is the reason for his absence, I have some doomsday insurance to sell you.
Ironically, going on a tour with the president would probably increase Walker’s overall approval rating, but he can’t because he knows he will be the most hated person in the room and will be protested and booed.
