Passive Aggressive Obama?

In terms of politics, I think Obama is smart to tread carefully in his minimal involvement in Wisconsin's budget legislation. If unions do lose their collective bargaining rights in the next week or two (and signs are pointing in that direction) Obama will save a little dignity. However, with each new controversy, Obama has been losing ground on a lot of things he campaigned on. In the process of saving face with the public, Obama is losing his identity and weakening the left as a whole. That, it would seem, is bad for everybody.
