I don't understand Jonah's criticism of "A crisis is terrible thing to waste" other than it came from the Obama camp (though it did not originate with them). This whole article is a song to the fact that crisis clouds have silver linings. Wisconsin would not have happened if the Wisconsin economy had been rolling along and the public sector union can would have just been kicked down the road. Walker took advantage of a crisis to fix a serious problem. Just because Obama (or Emmanuel) says something doesn't make it wrong.
