Republicans voting 'no' is obstruction, Democrats running away so they don't have to vote is 'Democracy'.

Defiant Wisconsin Democrats Say Running Away Is Democracy, Too Updated at 2:27 AM

Source: ABC News

The Democratic Wisconsin state senators camped out across the border in Illinois fired back at Gov. Scott Walker today, saying their action to block a vote on his budget proposal is an effort to protect democracy.

State Sen. Julie Lassa, who is six months pregnant, said the governor is wrong about her and the others holed up in an Illinois hotel.

"For all of us who left the state, we believe we're standing up for democracy," Nissa told ABC News' Barbara Pinto.

3. They are absolutely correct.

Not giving in to the rethuglican tactics is giving the state breathing room.

4. You are standing up for Democracy

and we salute you!!
You can't make this stuff up, that's for sure. But that's liberals for you.

And the fact that they are keeping kids out of school, and parents are needing to scramble to find day care for every day the teachers are out means that it's not only those who are listening to politics are aware of their duplicity, but they majority of the people see what they are doing.

I think they are badly underestimating what the public perception is about their behavior-both the politicians and the teachers.
