obama a no-show at labor rallies
« on: February 26, 2011, 10:21:50 AM »
he has lied again.

full story



When candidate Obama was campaigning in South Carolina in 2007, he said he was proud to wear the “union label” and that if workers were denied rights to organize or collectively bargain when he was elected, “I'll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I'll will walk on that picket line with you as president of the United States of America.”

But as the protests over collective bargaining rights drag out in Wisconsin, President Obama has yet to join the demonstrators outside the Capitol building in Madison, and it appears his administration is trying not to get involved in the fight.

White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett says what’s happening in Wisconsin is not a national fight. “Let’s not turn what’s really a Wisconsin issue into a Washington issue,” Jarrett told Fox News in an interview Tuesday.

But as the battle drags on in Wisconsin, the White House finds itself trying to explain why the president seemed to enter the fray when he told a local reporter in Wisconsin the collective bargaining issue in the Badger State seemed like “an assault on unions.”

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who was not working for Obama in 2007, but was on the job last week when the president made the “assault” comment to WTMJ in Milwaukee, says the president used the interview as an opportunity to be heard on an issue, but refused to elaborate on either the 2007 statement or the president’s most recent comments. Instead, Carney chose to focus on how the whole country should be “living within their means.”

i was not aware that you people said is was a state issue.  where is your proof.  or is that just your opinion. 

the fact is obama said he would walk with the union as president of the united states.  now he has cold feet.  another obama lie.  why aren't you people calling out obama for this outright lie.

House GOP Leader John Boehner, who today succeeded in passing the largest cut in government spending ever, is urging Obama to stay out of state issues and instead focus on doing his job!

His political organization is colluding with special interest allies across the country to demagogue reform-minded governors who are making the tough choices that the president is avoiding,” Boehner said. “The president should make it clear to his friends that the people of Wisconsin, and states across America, can handle their own affairs without Washington special-interest money and meddling.”
