If the Republicans can’t capitalize on the Wisconsin / Indiana lawmakers fleeing their states and the union schemes to destroy our economy, then they need to fire their marketing department.
We heard a lot about Wisconsin but not as much about Indiana, where the Democratic Fleebaggers were even less effective:
Although far less publicized than the Wisconsin Democrat Temper-Tantrum, Indiana State Dems have staged a walkout that far exceeded the Wisconsin walkout both in terms of time wasted and ultimate futility. Last night, the Indiana Democrats staged an ignominious return in which they were forced to explain why they accomplished absolutely nothing after wasting half a million dollars in taxpayer money.
See, unlike in Wisconsin, when the Dems left town, the Republicans took the opportunity to shelve the right-to-work legislation (the stated reason for the Great Democrat Flight) and get down to passing the rest of their legislative agenda sans Democrats, including the budget (balanced) and redistricting. As the Indianapolis Star put it:
. . .
Well, the Democrats are now back, and they are more unpopular than ever. And they are in the unenviable position of having to explain to the voters why, in these economically troubled times, with Hoosiers everywhere fighting for their jobs, the Indiana taxpayers had to foot the massive bill for their out-of-state jaunt, with absolutely nothing to show for it in return. In this fight, the IN GOP has scored a near-total victory.

Don’t forget about Ohio! Kasich is making a lot of gains there.
Ah, liberalism: the philosophy by which adults act like children, ask that children act like adults (e.g. sexuality and decision-making), and throw a fit when adults come in to break up the party.
