Skip to comments.Maddow: You Take Mr. Barack’s Dime, You Support Mr. Barack’s Policies

Barack Obama bought and paid for these banks. They better get in line behind his plan to abolish the secret ballot in unionization elections. Thats Rachel Maddows position. The MSNBC host is furious that banks taking bail-out funds have the audacity to do what they think is in the best interest of their businesses, instead of supporting the presidents scheme to do away with what most Americans consider a sacred element of democracy: the secret ballot.
Apparently Citi and Bank of America have hosted conference calls in which opposition was expressed to the Obama-backed, Orwellian-named, Employee Free Choice Act, which would permit the abolition of the secret ballot in unionization elections. That infuriated Maddow tonight . . .

Obama bought and paid for the banks. They better support him. Ping to Today show list.
I haven’t been keeping up with pop culture. Who the hell is this Madcow and why is she so popular all of a sudden? She was a nobody last month.
Well, she’s got her own MSNBC show and about a million people watch her every night. For my sins I monitor and report.
NO No no...You have your Bovine mixed up, you meant Bull Dyke?
She is actually losing viewership.
I saw five minutes of her show last night. She is boorish, unintelligent, unattractive, and very full of herself. She is in short a poster-child for the Democratic party.
Silly me, I thought the tax payers bought and paid for the banks.
Then she has no problem with the logic - “You do not take Barack’s (sic) dime, you do not support his policies”.
He who pays the piper picks the tune...unless he who pays happens to be the taxpayer, in which case he pretty much just shuts the f*ck up and takes it in the ass again.
All the dimes, dearie dreary Maddow, belong to US. We the people. We can damn well take them and be not beholden to any. Let no one forget that.
In war, sometimes you have to not only go behind the lines, you have to infiltrate and work for the enemy.
In this war, many of us will have to take those dimes, as many as possible but ignore and dance around the regulations they are given with. Be as honest as you can, but this is war.
excellent point! when do we get a vote on card check? Heck, I don’t even think we got a vote on the stimulus....Well, we got a vote, they just chose to ignore the 75% of us who said no.
In other words, the female (loosely speaking) version of Keith Olbermann, her PMSNBC bookend.
Socialism is just the modern form of feudalism. Bow to your liege lord!
“one of the principal reasons why government money is poisonous: It politicizes whatever it’s spent on, and whoever receives iteffectively converting them into vassals of the state and its current political leadership.”
Since he took OUR dime to buy the banks, I suppose he needs to listen to us.
Just what is the connection between the two issues? Why would the banks have anything to do with the secret ballots for union workers?
That dime isn't Mr Barack's - whomever that is; it's mine
Support my policys you dimwitted twit!
Dear Missy your fired your loser company GE took my money too.
