Scott Walker thinks that his reputation for destroying public-sector labor unions will frighten people.
…Walker argued that when Reagan fired the PATCO air-traffic controllers over their illegal strike, he was sending a message of toughness to Democrats and unions at home as well as our Soviet enemies abroad. Similarly, Walker believes his stance against unions in Wisconsin would be a signal of toughness to Islamic jihadists and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
In a way, he’s right. That kind of thinking is already scaring the crap out of me.
