    Obama joins Wisconsin's budget battle, opposing Republican anti-union bill

    Wisconsin protests swell to 25,000

    MADISON, WIS. - President Obama thrust himself and his political operation this week into Wisconsin's broiling budget battle, mobilizing opposition Thursday to a Republican bill that would curb public-worker benefits while planning similar action in other state capitals.

    Obama accused Scott Walker, the state's new Republican governor, of unleashing an "assault" on unions in pushing emergency legislation that would nullify collective-bargaining agreements that affect most public employees, including teachers.

    The president's political machine worked in close coordination Thursday with state and national union officials to mobilize thousands of protesters to gather in Madison and to plan similar demonstrations in other state capitals.

    Their efforts began to spread, as thousands of labor supporters turned out for a hearing in Columbus, Ohio, to protest a measure from Gov. John Kasich (R) that would cut collective-bargaining rights.

    By the end of the day, Democratic Party officials were working to organize additional demonstrations in Ohio and Indiana, where an effort is underway to trim benefits for public workers. Some union activists predicted similar protests in Missouri, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

    Here he goes sticking his nose into something he has no authority to stick it into again.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    This is NOT in O Blah Blah's job description.

    Dear Leader, (PBOY)

    You want to be in state politics? PLEASE resign and run in WI. God knows it is beyond your proven abilities, but at least you would do less damage to fewer people than your present performance indicates.

    Obama is such an ignoramous to insert himself into state politics. He has no business doing so and will alienate independents who believe in state rights. That will not keep this community organizer who thinks he is all things to all people from doing so. The Magic Negro's favorability rating should drop like a lead balloon after this stupidity.

    They make 25% less than people in the private sector...of course they only work 75% of the year too, but you won't hear that brought up....

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Americans love the idea of cutting the wages, benefits, and bargaining power of working and middle-class public employees while believing that letting tax cuts on wealthy people (the only group doing consistently well throughout this economic crisis) expire is morally wrong.

    lol working Americans so eagerly adopting the values and positions of those with the most oppressive power.

    Why should these greedy Union bastards not pay a portion of their health care premiums and a portion of their retirement fund like 99% of those in the private sector do?

    Fixed for accuracy.
