President Obama Earns Another Meddle

Friday, February 18, 2011

Meddle: (verb) butt in, intrude, poke one’s nose in, muscle in. That’s definitely what President Obama is doing once again, when he selfishly exclaimed that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s emergency legislation was an “assault on unions”.

Obama’s new centrist face was replaced rather quickly with the real leftist ideologue that is in his DNA. Obama has meddled often during his first two years as President. First it was how the Cambridge Police “acted stupidly” in the arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr.  Later, calling average Americans “Tea baggers”, for their participation in citizen protests on the growing federal deficit and ObamaCare. Last April, Obama called Arizona’s Immigration bill a “misguided” piece of legislation that “threatened to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe. “

Astro Turf protests for the Teacher's Unions in Wisconsin

President Obama has been portrayed as a “Constitutional scholar”,  while stepping on “State’s Rights” as outlined in the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment.

The DNC,  through President Obama’s Organizing for America is desperate to support the teachers union in Wisconsin. The NEA (National Education Association) donated over $56 million to the 2008 election campaign, about 95% went to Democrat party candidates. OFA’s efforts included filling buses and building turnout for the rallies this week in Madison, organizing 15 rapid response phone banks urging supporters to call their state legislators, and working on planning and producing rallies.

All the lefty sycophants and Obama allies have joined this huge Astro-Turf “protest”; Richard Trumka and his SEIU goons, Jesse Jackson, Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic party.

Wisconsin teachers called in “sick” and walked off their jobs, encouraging students to join them in this show of civil disobedience. The media and the left are portraying this as a “Cairo moment”, as if it’s a fight for democracy. In reality this is an anti-democratic protest. Fourteen Democrat state legislators are in hiding, so voting on any legislation is at a standstill. Schools are closed and students are getting dumber by the second.

Governor Walker’s attempt to rein in Wisconsin public employee union unfunded pension and health care entitlements, will be duplicated across the country from California, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and New York. We the taxpayers are on the hook for any shortfalls.

In California, medium-term unfunded liabilities for government employee pensions are pegged by the Legislative Analyst’s Office at $136 billion—and that’s a lowball figure. Legislative analyst Mac Taylor acknowledges in his current fiscal outlook report that the estimate leaves out billions in funding shortfalls at the pension funds for public school teachers and University of California employees. In the next 10 years, taxpayers will most likely be on the hook for somewhere between $325 billion and $500 billion. (Over the past five years, state revenues averaged $94.5 billion per year.)

Illinois, one of the nation’s remaining union strongholds, has funded less than 50% of the pension benefits it owes retirees—the worst ratio of all U.S. states, according to Moody’s Investors Service—and faces a $15 billion budget deficit.

The New York Times summed it up this way, “The nation’s governors face a daunting $555 billion in unfunded liabilities to finance retiree health coverage. The Pew Center on the States calculated those long-term obligations last year, saying New Jersey had the largest amount, $68.9 billion, with California second, at $62.5 billion.”

The President should be the president for ALL the people, but not Barack Obama, he’s for any one who puts money in his election campaign.

The Washington Post, “The president’s political machine worked in close coordination Thursday with state and national union officials to get 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 organizing 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.”

This is a watershed moment for Barack Obama. If we stand up against big government, public employee union entitlements and massive federal over spending then Obama is toast in 2012.

Some one wrote, “If the Tea Party was able to rally the way the left has in Wisconsin, then ObamaCare would have never passed.”

Let’s counter rally and let’s vote these bastards out in 2012!

    As a resident of Wisconsin, I resent the intrusion of our nation’s fearless leader into our state house. Governor Doyle rammed through a lot of expenditures after the election to leave a bigger mess to new governor Walker. The Republican senators did not run to Illinois to hide like cowards. They fought their battle, lost with a minority vote.

    Now the cowardly Democrat Senators hide in Illinois and brag of their courage to play hooky. The teachers protests have been amplified by outside money, protestors, and the propaganda machine of B.O. with Soros money. Wisconsin is one of the highest taxed states, and the per capita income is nowhere near the highest. So the burden of taxation takes a high percentage of income.

    President Obama should be praising and making Illinois an example for governors around the 50 states imitate. Sure raise taxes more! That will really help bring in residents, and business to Illinois? Proud of Governor Walker for holding to his pledges in spite of B.O. & Soros funded attacks.

    That particular POS has got to be gotten out of his position.
