Cenk asks his Power Panel — BuzzFeed.com’s McKay Coppins and syndicated columnist Cliff Schecter — whether President Obama has done enough to help support efforts to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
“If he went in, he could bring a ton of momentum to the race,” Coppins says, “but if he goes in there and they lose the election, he’s got egg on his face…in what could be a very important swing state.”
Schecter says, “Maybe Obama needs a little more John McCain in him. This is a risk but it’s a calculated risk. I don’t think they look at the longer picture. High risk, high reward — worth the risk in this case.”
