It is not about Obama, but the cause that the workers are fighting for.

If Obama goes to Wisconsin, then the right wing will focus on "Washington intervention in a state's business"...that one talking point, could change the focus of the debate..nothing would help the right wing more, than having Obama come and get involved in the so called local business of Wisconsin

While we could win a local battle, Obama's presence and a big rally lead by him, would focus away from the idiot governor, to the question of federal interference in Wisconson...
that talking point would override the power of the workers fighting for their rights..Hartmann pointed out yesterday, that Obama coming to Wisconsin actually could help Walker survie the crisis and win reelction..

Without Obama, Walker is digging a hole for himself....Sending out cops to peoples houses does not sound too good to average voter..
that is the issue, rather than Obama's presence.. And Walker's use of force, and lies, and taking away bargaining rights......is the issue.

.and not whether people from Washington, national leaders come to help Wisconson out...that is not the issue..

When we win, It will be our victory, not Obama's victory..Obama will be there and is there now,just like most of us are..and we will win..
