President pays back unions: 'Nothing wrong with that'

In fact his direct quote from his book, “Audacity of Hope”, is ““I owe those unions ... When their leaders call, I do my best to call them back right away. I don’t mind feeling obligated.” The man we as a country elected is on course to repay his “debt” to the unions in one of most obvious pay to play schemes to ever be used against the American people.

His endorsement of the “card check” system that allows union officials to strong arm voters into a public vote, so they may badger individuals that don’t “fall into line.” The President has given them the legal tools needed to do the intimidation, and the unions have given the President the highly suspect organization to do the President’s dirty work.

The Unions lobbying effort has spent more in each Presidential election than BOTH parties have spent to assure a favorable place in all issues affecting them and their membership. If you noticed when all the financial issues were coming to light, and high pay for company officials was the highlight of the discussion, not once did the issue of what Union Officials are paid, or their bonuses come to the table. Did you think it wasn’t important? Did you care?

We should all care, because the price of doing business in America IS controlled by unions. Look how the UAW was treated in the bankruptcies of GM and Chrysler, they got priority treatment in their investment status. Did you think that really wasn’t important? Did you care?

You should care because your President set precedence in circumventing the judicial system to address the debt he owed to the Unions. Was this your debt? Did you promise the unions anything? Of course you didn’t, the unions didn’t offer you anything in return. They didn’t offer to pay off your house, or pay your car loans, but they did offer Barack Obama money for his campaign! The funniest part of all this is no politician sees this as a conflict of interest.

Some of you can’t believe that such a blatant act can happen in America, and there is somehow more to the story. I’d love to hear something somehow more convincing than the simplistic ideas I have presented here, but that would read more like a Grimm’s Fairy Tale, now wouldn’t it?
