    While kicking the can down the road isn’t an exclusively leftist tactic, the right has a record of anticipating and solving these problems before they become damaging (Springfield) or insurmountable (Detroit). For example look at Wisconsin and TEA Party backed Gov. Scott Walker’s winning battles with the labor gangs. This was a case where kicking the can down the road was rejected, in favor of a brutal and expensive political fight, and Wisconsin’s financial condition is now much improved.

    Few want to take the losses and the pain up front. But it works. Kicking cans doesn’t, although it might become an Olympic sport before long.
