The amount of influence the unions have over this administration is frightening.

Not only frightening but ludicrous. Unions don’t create jobs, they destroy them.
Obama should be talking to CEO’s, investors, small business owners and entrepreneurs, instead he’s pandering to the very people who cost jobs and hold companies and the American tax payer hostage and then threaten them with violence.
He can’t help it though, he’s an ideologue and will keep doubling-down on stupid until he’s tossed out of office.
Don’t be frightened by the amount of influence the unions have on Obama – be thrilled! They’re absolutely destroying Obama’s presidency AND the DNC. Let them keep going. Just look at this week alone: we open a four day week with Obama forced to deal with yesterday’s horrible speech, today’s horrible poll numbers, and today’s horrible economic news. This will continue straight into Thursday when he gives what will most likely be a disaster of a speech which will damage him even more. As long as the unions are helping Obama to set the course, there’s nowhere to go but straight into the abyss. Salon is already openly calling for Obama to back out of the 2012 elections.
All in one week.
Somewhere, someone high up in the DNC is seeing this and running to the bathroom to throw up.
Partners in crime……..
Obama is going to face a humiliating loss next year. He has no clue what awaits him.
Wonder how the media would have reacted if Bush had flown Haliburton people around to rallies in Air Force One?
Little O and his WTF campaign. This type of activity does not pass the constitution smell test. Mrs. lady BIG BUTT O, also can’t wait for her humiliating three nose jobs beat down. WTF…….
American, wake up.
They are un-elected government officials serving in non-existent offices.
With no accountability to voters.
“Somewhere, someone high up in the DNC is seeing this and running to the bathroom to throw up.”
Usually when that happens it’s because someone just accidentally saw Nancy Pelosi nude.
Frightening, because I fear the unions will be used as massive instruments of voter fraud, and I wouldn’t put it past them to get downright ruthless about it. That’s the only way Obama can win.
Was Muchelle at the rally yesterday?
This can’t be legal. What is it with demos and travel abuse. Did they all guzzle Grey Goose vodka like Nancy Pee?
What is even more frightening is the utter cowardice of those not affiliated with this crooked Administration who will not put an end to this criminal activity.
Did they eat Satan sammiches on the Tax Payers corporate jet?
Remember the Air Force One tour of downtown New York? The one that scared hell out of the citizens below? We still don’t know who was on that flight.
When O (I refuse to say his name or title) was elected, I gave each of my children a notebook and asked them to keep a recod of the changes occuring in this country. I felt at the time that a huge change (but not Hope&Change) was on its way and that when they looked back years from now and asked “How did we get here?” they would have an answer. Sadly, they have not kept up with each and every crazy decree, legistlation and decision made by this president as frankly there are too many. Can someone tell me if there is a list somewhere starting with the disasterous inauguration parties and up to today?
W The F
Obama was looking forward to an imminent social revolution, literally a movement where the working classes would overthrow the ruling class and institute a kind of socialist Utopia in the United States. I mean, that’s how extreme his views were his sophomore year of college.
myrtle, a list that shows how Obuma got us here? I dunno. The internet makes everything searchable in the future.
Myrtle, I have an excellent list. It’s pretty big, though. I cold post it here in the comments if Zip lets me.
Everybody’s yakin. Congress is strategizing. O’ blathering . The country getting screwed big time. Cavalry no way in sight. Yup everything ripe for disaster,
Hmmmmm,, not really seeing a problem with my donors flying around with me, especially since you bitter-clingers are paying for it all.. I sure could use a va-kay.
OsamaHusseinIslamObama 2012′ (WTF)

Luv this site!!!!
The McClatchy-Marist poll shows the president leading all of his Republican challengers in hypothetical match-ups. Why?
It may have something to do with the fact that as frustrated as Americans are, they’re not blaming Obama for the mess. The results are pretty similar to an NBC/WSJ poll released two weeks ago, which showed a fairly small number of Americans holding Obama responsible for “the country’s current economic conditions,” and actually blaming George W. Bush in much larger numbers.
Indeed, that poll asked, “When you think about the current economic conditions, do you feel that this is a situation that Barack Obama has inherited or is this a situation his policies are mostly responsible for?” A large 62% majority said he inherited the mess — roughly identical to the new McClatchy-Marist results.
This is no doubt one of the driving factors behind the “he made it worse” push from leading Republicans. The GOP knows Americans don’t blame Obama for the weak economy, so the party has to convince voters they were actually better off during the 2008 crash — an insane idea that’s easily disproven.
The larger point is, people are frustrated and pessimistic, but they don’t necessarily see President Obama as the culprit.
Obama has surrounded himself with Criminals, tax cheats and only 8% of his administration has ever worked for a privately held company. Is there any wonder why our country is in the shape it is in?
Richard Trumka, President of the AFLCIO ordered a Strike in 1993 in Virginia at Peabody Coal while he was President of the United Mine Workers. Eddie York was shot in the back of his head by one of Trumka’s Dorks and died instantly during this strike. Trumka ended up paying $27 Million Dollars to Eddie’s Widow and 3 young children.
This is Obama’s good friend and on his Jobs Committee. You be the judge, the link to Trumka is below.
LUV MY PRESS……Not impressed by McClatchy-Marist polls when they are a Liberal News Source and the 2nd largest Liberal Media Giant in the Nation. Of course they will favor Obama and his 17% approval for handling of the Economy Dork.
The unions reimbursing the taxpayers for that flight…?
a beyond the pale, blatant disregard of ethics rules…
Since when does the AFL-CIO union boss ride with a president… on AF1?
When Odumbo the president is sucking their cocks… that’s when…
The DONKEY and the Thug PARTNERS IN CRIME
Polls. When you see a funny looking poll result, research the polling numbers. Polls in Obama’s favor usually poll way more demos than republicans.
RFK prosecuted Jimmy Hoffa and the Teamsters.. who threatened to kill him.
‘Kennedy was convinced that Hoffa had beaten, if not killed, union dissidents, stolen millions in union funds, and shaken down employers. But proof was hard to come by. Records had vanished, along with Hoffa’s memory of key events. Kennedy hoped to grind Hoffa down, slinging charges at him until one stuck. Though obsessed with his foe–and obsessed is not too strong a word–Kennedy strangely underestimated Hoffa. Kennedy was so sure of the rightness of his cause that he could not see that Hoffa felt the same way about his own. The Teamster leader was accustomed to being prosecuted and, as he saw it, persecuted. Hoffa could easily regard himself as the friend of the working man unfairly assaulted by a showboating millionaire’s son.
The attorney general was well aware that Jimmy Hoffa wanted him dead. Kennedy had continued to pursue Hoffa with a unit known (though not in the Justice Department) as the Get Hoffa Squad, run by Kennedy’s loyal top investigator Walter Sheridan. In 1962, Sheridan’s team had got a break when a disaffected Teamster named E.G. Partin agreed to cooperate with the government. Partin told Kennedy’s men that Hoffa had asked him if he knew anything about plastic explosives. Partin quoted Hoffa as saying, ‘I’ve got to do something about that son of a bitch Bobby Kennedy.’ The Teamster chief marveled at RFK’s almost defiant indifference to personal security. Hoffa told Partin that RFK had a lot of guts to swim alone in his pool and drive around in a convertible. Skeptically listening to Partin describe these threats, Walter Sheridan suggested that Partin be given a lie detector test. ‘What do we do if that fellow passes the test?’ Kennedy asked…
Jimmy Hoffa, for years his great white whale, was finally convicted (of jury tampering) in March, 1964….
Kennedy himself was an obvious target for assassination plots. FBI bugs and taps had picked up threats from various mobsters and Hoffa’s henchmen. Most were bluster. But right in the midst of Garrison’s revelations and Kennedy’s preparations for his antiwar speech in early March , the FBI received a threat that had to be taken seriously. One of Hoffa’s goons, the head of the Teamsters Union in Puerto Rico, Frank Chavez, had sworn that he would kill RFK if Jimmy Hoffa ever went to prison. On March 1, 1967, the Supreme Court turned down Hoffa’s last appeal of his conviction for jury tampering in Tennessee. That same day, Chavez and two other thugs, carrying guns, boarded a plane for Washington. Kennedy was warned and given armed guards. Hickory Hill was placed under surveillance. It later turned out that Hoffa himself talked Chavez out of shooting RFK. Fearful that he would never get out of jail if the Teamsters were caught trying to kill Kennedy, Hoffa demanded that Chavez turn over his gun. (A few months later, Chavez was murdered by his own bodyguard)…’
An Arab assassinated RFK,. and the Arab Hussein bin Obama is flying around with another Hoffa..
Anyone remember the second of Obama’s civility speeches? The one where he shouted that the political tone had reached a new low because the Republicans had placed special interests ahead of the country.
And now we see Obama treating the ‘special interest’ unions like royalty, while they issue blatant threats from a stage shared with Obama!
Obama has pulled out all the stops. His plan for a Marxist takeover of this country is falling apart and he intends to stop at nothing to put it back on track.
His Marxist plans are not falling apart. Just kicked up another gear. Who got that $800 billions for arms? Unions? Black panthers? Organize for America?
That well funded civilian army. The one to take the place of our military. There is a reason he doesn’t bring the troops home. He has militarized the CIA.
Folks wake up, we are indeed in the second phase of a military take over. The coup is in play.
Off subject, sorry, but does anyone know where I can get a picture of Moochelle coming down the airplane steps in that awkward stance that looks like a 54″ flat screen is hidden under her dress?
a copy of the picture….I hope no one never sees that in person again
Wow, great find….wonder why they didn’t want us to know THIS?
Where was moochie? in the animal cargo hold?
And Carney pretends O didn’t know what they were gonna say!
HE probably told him to say it, scums.
What are you talking about? $800 billion for arms….
And the scope and definition of the powers of the CIA are no different than they were when Bush left office.
Or are you suggesting that the entire CIA has joined Obama in a quest for America’s decline?
You need to stop smoking whatever you’re smoking.
