Obama Opposes Free And Fair Elections In Wisconsin

It doesn’t seem to matter if it’s foreign relations or domestic disputes, President Obama is always on the wrong side of history.  Millions took to the street during Iran’s Green Revolution that protested a patently phony election which declared Ahmadinejad the president within an hour of the polls closing.  That mind blowing speed is not bad for a country mired with an authoritarian religion and culture based in the 7th century.  It’s also impossible.  Yet, our president kept silent for 10 days in 2009.

His initial comments were actually supportive of the government. We wouldn’t want to be construed as meddling, would we?  Ultimately, his only admonition to the government was to be nice to the demonstrators. That worked well. Ask all the dead ones.  He never called for new elections or even to request that the opposition to be a part of any negotiations.

But fast forward to today in Wisconsin.  We have a democratically elected Governor Scott Walker and a state legislature with a state that’s going broke because of the burden of union payrolls and pensions.  Here is a Republican governor and a Republican legislature that wants to do the right thing, reign in out-of-control spending and balance the budget.  Hmm, isn’t this something the American people think Obama should be doing in Washington?   Remember, the last election in 2010?  Republican swept the House.  So what does Obama do?  He has the nerve to open his yap to object to the Wisconsin governor and release the dogs to attack and bring havoc to his state. This is Ahmadinejad and his goons redux here in America. Obama is inciting a riot. Outrageous.

It’s outrageous on several fronts:

1) State’s Rights. Not only is Obama interfering in state politics (suing Arizona wasn’t enough). Obama doesn’t understand state’s rights.  He needs to read the Constitution; it’s in there.  Everything else Obama supports:  Obamacare, GM bailout, etc.  is not.    He then sends in his storm troopers, literally.   His Organizing with America, his political arm, has been coordinating the chaos and mayhem in Wisconsin in concert with union thugs.

2)  The Organizer In Chief can’t get his own house in order. Obama’s position of opposing the  reigning in of union largesse is now clearly shown for the world to see.  It stands in sharp contrast to Obama’s own federal budget plan.  There he is expanding the size of his deficit with his proposed federal budget, while simultaneously giving lip service to “deficit reduction” and being “business friendly”. Why he’s even met with top business execs this past week in Silicon Valley.   Helloooo, just how stupid does he think the American people are?  Plenty stupid, apparently.   But America is not buying what Obama is serving.   A Rasmussen poll released today shows just 23% of Americans strongly approving and 41% Strongly disapproving of the president.  Memo to Michelle, it’s not too early to ask your army of valets to start packing.

Incredible as that might be,  it doesn’t end there.

3)  A New Level of Radicalism. How radical is Obama’s position?  Obama finds himself very alone in his rabid support for his union thugs.  He’s now given up on playing that “centrist card”.    That didn’t last long.  His mentor, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose New Deal and a Supreme Court packed with statists and lefties steered America more leftwards than any other president in American history, could not even support public civil service unions.
“Meticulous attention,” President Roosevelt declared in 1937, “should be paid to the special relations and obligations of public servants to the public itself and to the Government….The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service.”
Why did Roosevelt say that?   Because as later expressed;
“[a] strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to obstruct the operations of government until their demands are satisfied. Such action looking toward the paralysis of government by those who have sworn to support it is unthinkable and intolerable.”

Here’s how the Socialists are working the Wisconsin civil unrest- they love it.

The taxpayers are paying for the teachers to demonstrate. They’re unlawfully using their sick days.  This underscores the very reasons why Governor Walker is right in demanding reforms of the outrageous labor laws.  And as of today, the governor is not blinking and standing his ground. In most states, like Wisconsin and California, the labor unions write their own ticket and a kowtowing legislature rubber stamps it.  How else can we daily read about all the outrageous:  pensions, overtime, padding, lifetime employment, health benefits and salaries that make a normal working stiff wince?  The outrageous gravy train of benefits have already toppled a dozen cities and now threatens to topple scores more cites, counties and states.

4) Who is Getting Screwed? The Students, Parents, and the hapless Taxpayers.

Obama opposes the workings of a democratically elected Wisconsin governor and legislature.  The people voted in fair and open elections, this is what Obama doesn’t like.  He apparently likes rigged elections like those in Iran, where he supported the government- over the democracy movement during the Green Revolution there. 

Maybe, Wisconsin should borrow a page from Iran and develop its own nuclear bomb, that’ll quickly quiet up Obama, the nation’s first and hopefully last Community-Organizer-in-Chief.

Obama’s Alinsky-ite rantings are all to the detriment of students who have no classes, parents who must lose work to care for their stay at home students and for the hapless taxpayers of Wisconsin who are underwriting the demonstrations.
