Obama a no-show in Wisconsin

    Hey, all you union members out there: Why didn't Obama make a single appearance in Wisconsin? He goes to union rallies and tells them he's with them. 95% of unions support Obama and Democratic candidates. Funny how he didn't seem to even want to take the time to make a single appearance to support a constituency that he says he's so interested in.

    I'm not a union guy. I have nothing against union members - they're decent hard-working folks. It's the union leaders that make me sick. If you're reading this and you are in a union, aren't you just a little angry that you pay union dues that go toward the re-election of a President that doesn't take a couple of hours out of his campaign schedule to show his support for you? After all, this was a critical referendum on public unions. I find this amazing.

    moral of the story, is that obama is a cowardly punk. he didn't have the stones to show his face, knowing it was a losing proposition. he claims to have been standing with the unions all along....and you trusted him. he played you.

    he has never taken a hard stand. healthcare, unions, the economy. he has had someone else take the hit every time.

    and you keep trusting him?

    In politics there are what is called "inside polling numbers",and Obama's people probably knew a week before the re-call election that it didn't look good,so stay away.

    Interesting article, Doc.

    Just taking a cross-section of the hard-core leftists mentioned, you get a sense of the mental fustercluck of which that demographic is comprised...

    obama already has the unions in his pocket, why should he bother with token showings now?
