- Gov. Scott Walker (Arrrghhh - WI) is apparently walking back on his insistence to strip state employees of collective bargaining rights. Funny how things change in the face of fierce public opposition and a little threat (named recall) to the cushy jobs the Republican office holders themselves hold.
- Speaking of the recall efforts in Wisconsin, Fox News is upset that President Obama's political team might - might - be involved with those efforts. Aww, isn't Fox cute when it's mad?
- Harry Reid is forcing Senate Republicans to vote on the House Republicans' budget cuts, as well as a vote on the Democratic proposal. But it's mostly for theater, probably. Neither is going to pass.
- President Obama is putting down a marker on the budget debate, focusing on the future. He's warning the GOP to keep its hands off of education.
