Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker provides a lesson...
Earlier in the day, the president made a point of throwing his weight around, implicitly criticizing Wisconsin's efforts to fix its fiscal woes.
It didn't take long for the state's chief executive to respond to the president. Only his words were much more direct (as in "bull's eye"):
"Furthermore, I'm sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.
"I'm sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn't acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another."
