Obama Supports Union ‘Bullying’ In WI

From an outraged Associated Press:

White House: Wis. vote ‘vilifies’ public workers

Thu Mar 10, 2011

WASHINGTON – The White House is denouncing a vote by the Wisconsin Senate to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from government workers, calling it an assault on public employees.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama believes it is wrong for Wisconsin to use its budget troubles "to denigrate or vilify public sector employees."

The state Senate acted Wednesday night by using a procedural move that allowed them to pass the anti-bargaining rights measure without any Democrats in the chamber.

The Wisconsin maneuver has been pushed by Gov. Scott Walker and has rallied the labor movement in opposition. Obama has argued that public employees should not be exempt from financial sacrifice in light of state budget shortfalls. But he has criticized efforts to weaken their bargaining rights

Tell that to Jimmy Carter.

But if Mr. Obama is so concerned about the unions, why doesn’t he just nationalize the state of Wisconsin and put the public sector unions in charge?

You think that is preposterous? Well, he’s done it before – with GM and Chrysler. And GM and Chrysler are a heck of a lot bigger than the state government of Wisconsin?

    This clown really doesn’t get the separation of federal and state powers, does he.

    Amazing how quickly he jumped all over this, but took 5 days to say a thing about the atrocities in Libya.

    Mr. Barry, your socialist slip is showing. You might want to pull your skirt down a little bit.

      He thinks it’s fine to villify conservatives (“bitter clingers…racists..”), white police officers (beer summit), Tea Partiers (for months last fall), Supreme Court Justices (State of the Union address), and anyone who doesn’t buy into his fraudulent, delusional, mendacious, reckless, malignant, and self-destructive vision of a collectivist America. He’s the very archetype of Malignant Narcissism, as idefined by psychologists.

      There’s a special circle in the lowest depths of hell for Obummer, Pelosi/Reid, and all their minions.

    If it wasn’t for the criminals, thugs, bullies and paid-off sychophants, who would support the boy king, now that the country knows at least a little bit about him?

    If his background was publicized, rather than actively hidden, his vote would be below 20%, or however many hyphenated Americans, Union bosses, college professors and full-time criminals there are in the country.

    Yeah – I remember the shellacking Reagan took when he fired the air traffic controllers. God I miss the grown ups!

    With ears like his, I’m sure Dumbo Obama knows what bullying is all about. You know, being locked in your gym locker can cause oxygen deprivation. That causes brain damage you know.

    This week officially broke the irony meter.

    • proreason says:

      They not only are disconnected from reality, they are disconnected from their own past, even the past from moments ago.

      No shame. Not even recognition of the concept of shame.

      No embarrasment. Not even recognition that embarrasment is possible.

      No thought to even acknowledge what happened yesterday

      No concept of hypocricy. No concept of irony. No concept that the past matter in any way.

      In a strange way, it must be liberating.

      When everything is relative, the rules are invented anew every day.

      A lack of consistency results in consistent lacking.

  6. Tater Salad says:

    A National “Right-to-Work Bill” is being introduced in Congress that will cover ALL 50 states and protectorates. This is going to make Unions voluntary and paying dues voluntary, the way it should be. Not forced upon somebody who wants to make a living for himself and his family.

    We need to now contact all of our Senators and tell them to support this legislation!
