Obama had the gall today to lecture America on not “vilifying” and “denigrating” union workers lest we infringe upon their made-up rights or something….. Here’s Obama’s disingenuous words:
From Fox Nation via Cubachi:
Public servants will agree with that. Democrats and republicans agree with that. In fact many public employees in your respective states have already agreed to cuts. But let me also say this, I don’t think it does anybody any good when public employees are denigrated or vilified, or their rights are infringed upon. We need to attract the best and the brightest to public service. These times demand it.
We’re not gonna attract the best teachers for our kids, for example, if they only make a fraction of what other professionals make. We’re not gonna convince the bravest Americans to put their lives on the line as police officers or firefighters if we don’t properly reward that bravery. So yes we need a conversation about pensions and Medicare and Medicaid and other promises that we’ve made as a nation and those will be tough conversations but necessary conversations.
As we make these decisions about our budget, going forward though, I believe that everyone should be at the table and that the concept of shared sacrifice should prevail. If all the pain’s borne by only one group, whether its workers or seniors or the poor, while the wealthiest among us get to keep or get more tax breaks, we’re not doing the right thing. I think that’s something the democrats and the republicans should be able to agree on.
Blah. Blah. Blah…..teachers not paid enough, tax cuts for the rich, everyone at table (if they are his side of the table..heh)…..broken lying record.
Walker is having none of it and lays the wood to Obama:
“I’m sure the President knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay. And I’m sure the President knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts.
“Furthermore, I’m sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.
“I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.”
Oh my…..That is great. I like Scott Walker’s style.
Where does Obama get off talking about “vilifying and denigrating” workers, anyway?
Obama himself called the Tea Party “teabaggers”, a sexually derogatory term, among other denigrating names. Obama “not vilifying” Tea Partiers from the New York Times back in 2009:
“Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”
…..and he insisted that the Tea Party should be “thanking him” instead of being against him.
And very early on, he called those who disagree with him “bitter clingers” with their guns, religion, and racism.
Walker and those against the public sector union gravy train are heads above in the behavior department. Otherwise, as Obama has similarly done, Walker would insist that the union members “thank him” for not firing them or he would be calling them sexually degrading names..
Obama is a hypocrite deluxe…. His motto is “do as i say and not as I do”….”oh, and don’t touch my campaign gravy train…the unions!”
Obama is the one who said ” “Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”
Everyone must have “skin in the game”, it seems, except the Obama’s and the public sector unions.
