Obummer sides with and encourages labor union revolt in Wisconsin. With thousands of teachers on strike (but falsely using sick pay so that they don’t lose a dime – nice lesson to students there about lying), the Democrats hiding out in an Illinois beer hall and other union members denouncing Governor Walker as a “terrorist” and a “dictator“, our president has strengthened his call for a new civility by embracing his crowd.
Just in case the NYT fails to mention it, what’s happening in Wisconsin is what used to be called democracy. State voters, fed up with a bloated budget that was sucking them dry, elected a governor and a legislative body committed to putting an end to collective bargaining and reining in the public employee unions. It turns out, democracy for unions and our president is something that occurs only when Democrats win elections; anything else is terrorism and oppression. Obummer claims not only to have been born in this country but to have attended Harvard. If true, what a sad commentary on both.
Like the Greeks, neither Obummer nor his union thugs have realized what’s happened: they’ve sucked the taxpayer’s teat dry and things can no longer continue as they were. In their ignorance, they shout and scream and refuse to recognize that their day is ending. If Governor Walker can prevail against the President of the United States and his minions, and I think he will, he was elected along with a majority of republicans and Tea Partiers, look for him to be our next Republican candidate for president. America loves a hero, so I’d bet Walker will whip Obama’s scrawny butt.
