Obama again displays the difference between statists and conservatives

Maybe it’s not statists and conservatives, but to President Obama it’s him against his opponents. On his home-turf in front of a United Auto Workers crowd in Washington yesterday, Obama couldn’t grasp the concept that wanting to be on top and working together is not mutually exclusive.

After telling a story about some auto workers who won the lottery and kept working at the plant, Obama noted

[T]hat’s what America is about.  America is not just looking out for yourself.  It’s not just about greed.  It’s not just about trying to climb to the very top and keep everybody else down.  When our assembly lines grind to a halt, we work together and we get them going again.  When somebody else falters, we try to give them a hand up, because we know we’re all in it together.

What ticks me off about who more and more people are calling the GDC (figure it out) is that he attacks individuals who are successful and defines a false premise that is a total lie. Mr. President, tell me who is climbing to the very top and “keeping everybody else down?” Really, what successful person or group in the top 10 percent of wage earners is fighting to keep the poor poor?

It’s total bull shit, and for the union workers cheering at the political rally – let’s call it what it was – it’s total and complete projection.

Answer me this … when a struggling individual or group who is not affiliated with a union steps in and tells a company they can provide the same service union members provide with equal or better quality at a lower cost, who is brutally attacked? Who gets the email threats? Who has their tires slashed?

When Boeing built a non-union manufacturing plant in South Carolina to make planes, providing what could be thousands of good jobs, who filed suit against Boeing? The unions. Who accused Boeing of illegally setting up shop in South Carolina? That would be the Obama administration’s National Labor Relations Board. GDC all of them.

So much for the relations with the thousands of people who simply wanted to work in South Carolina.

Get it yet? By demanding higher than market rates for salaries and benefits, the union leaders are being greedy … trying to climb to the very top and keep others down. By wondering out loud why conservatives and the GOP find working men and women so offensive, he sets a very dangerous precedent. He’s claiming the GOP and conservatives are trying to “beat down” union members. More lies, more projection.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for the Office of the President, but I can’t stand this idiot’s crap anymore.

    Steve, deep breath . . . no need to blow a blood vessel over him. For a long time I really thought that ?bama was behind all of his class warfare stuff, killing jobs in America, giving money to his friends via DOE grants, etc.
    He is not smart, not be a long shot! He is just the useful idiot of the Democrat party. He simply reads the scripts written by the DNC. That’s why without the Teleprompter he is totally lost.?
    ?bama’s whole career has been as a mouthpiece for one group or another. It suits the goals of the DNC/Democrats to divide and confuse American workers. He hates all of emblems of capitalism He is smug, imperious and acts better than everyone else. That’s him. But smart? NO!
    The unions think they have an ally in the WH. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    It? is wrong to blame the unions. Blame belongs to those who give in to the union demands,usually because it’s not their money they are giving away.
