Is Governor Walker feeling a bit remorseful?

“Could it be that Scott Walker is somewhat remorseful over his decision to whack collective bargaining for public employees?”

That’s the question being asked by Joseph Vanden Plas at, in regards to Gov. Walker’s recently announced state employee recognition program.

While it’s entirely plausible Gov. Walker does feel some small measure of remorse, I’m betting that remorse has nothing to do with the realization of the negative impact his proposals will have on thousands of largely middle class families from every corner of Wisconsin. Instead, I’m betting whatever remorse Gov. Walker might feel is a cynical remorse over the fact that he and his Republican followers have paid a hefty political price for their far-right anti-union agenda.
