Union Buster Obama Abandons Wisconsin Workers, Allows Governor to Continue Reign of Terror
Grant J. Kidney— President Barack Obama has told the struggling workers of Wisconsin that he hasn’t the time of day to help engage in the fight against the evil, job-destroying governor, Scott Walker.
In Wisconsin, a recall election was held just last week in an attempt to oust the union-busting Walker, replacing him with a Democratic alternative.
The plight of Wisconsin workers against their malevolent governor pre-dates Occupy Wall Street. Walker, an austerity-minded Republican elitist and relative of the Bush family, has threatened deep cuts to the state’s budget. On some level, Walker has already succeeded in his quest to disband Wisconsin’s public safety net.
Obama’s broken promise to defend American workers
Speaking to WBAY, a local television station based out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, Obama’s official alibi was that he’s “got a lot of responsibilities” on his plate, too much to care about the little people who helped to put his kaboose where he is today in the oval office.
While campaigning for President in 2008, Barack Obama promised, “If there is a labor dispute I will walk the picket lines myself.” Thus far Obama hasn’t walked one picket line nor has he upheld any of the principles upon which the unions and other such labor organizations are built- proof enough that both the Democratic and the Republican parties are but two management teams servicing the very same, over-arching corporate elite.
Obama’s supreme failure to uphold workers’ rights in this country coupled with his funneling of billions of dollars in to the pockets of greedy, Wall Street bankers signals that the President is nothing more than a union-busting puppet on par with the nastiest of anti-labor Republican elitists imaginable.
The good people of Wisconsin are on their own.
