It sums up the victory in Michigan's Right To Work battle rather well:

Yes, the Dems are still weeping bitter tears. Joining Rochelle Riley is Freep Columnist Brian Dickerson: Brian Dickerson: In absence of grown-ups, legislators acted childishly in right-to-work fiasco.
Dickerson joins the left in its "Heads I win, tails you lose argument":
But Snyder's rationale for embracing right-to-work echoes Stamas' puerile excuse for his party's parliamentary shenanigans: The Democrats, he says, are the ones who started it.
Specifically, Snyder blames the opposition for inciting his own party's spoiled brats by trying to tip the constitutional scales in labor's failure in the Proposal 2 campaign. Never mind that they failed. Because Democrats got too greedy, Snyder says, he had no choice but to indulge the GOP's greed-heads.
It's the logic of the playground, ill-becoming a leader who once aspired to be an honest broker.
Michigan isn't the first arena in which political adversaries have mimicked each other's worst qualities. It's one of history's saddest themes -- the reason ayatollahs and communist revolutionaries end up looking an awful lot like the shahs and czars they've deposed.
A little over-the-top in the rhetoric department now isn't he?
In other words Dickerson expects that the Union overreach in pushing Proposal Two should have had no backlash.
Wrong, Tit-for-Tat is a highly reasonable bargaining strategy, otherwise there is no deterrent for the Democrats next overreach.
Dickerson apparently prefers the Democrat Ratchet Effect technique - Democrat advances can never be halted and if they're defeated its only temporary with no consequences.
No thanks, but keep crying.
