The Democratic National Committee's Organizing for America arm -- the remnant of the 2008 Obama campaign -- is playing an active role in organizing protests against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's attempt to strip most public employees of collective bargaining rights.

Leeches, ticks and bloodsuckers are leftist Dems.
Ask them where the Rathskellar or Paisans is. If they don’t know that’ll be yer tip-off.
No. It's more than that. It's the remnant of ACORN.
All the while, Obama tries to distance himself from it.
Well, what can we do about it?
Thou protesteth loudly of running out of other people’s money. Looks like a few blimps in the crowd living a bit too large anyway.
0bama tries to distance himself from everything but vacations, golf and parties.
Meanwhile, in Tennessee, a bill to do the same thing to the teachers unions advanced out of committee.
wrong. Wrong. WRONG!
I am tired of news outlets perpetuating this lie. They can still bargain for their salaries under this bill. Benefits are taken out.
Typical Obama astroturf job
The relationship between the unions and the Democratic Party would be considered corruption if it was done in secret--the unions help the Democrats win elections and the Democrats reward them with gobs of the taxpayers' money--but because it is done openly it is considered "business as usual."
DUmocrats are the masters of ASTROTURF. Where would the DNC be without the rent-a-mob of union goons and mass produced signs?
As Pelosi would say.... astro turf!
Looks like Obama’s fingerprints to me.
Thanks for posting. Not a surprise that DNC, RATS and unions are joined at the hip.

We caught them being bussed into Jackson Michigan during the health care fight when we protested outside my former congressman’s office.
I’m just real glad we elected a secretary of state who has a taste for marxist blood.
Indeed. It's straight out of the Chicago Way playbook.
Scott Walker is cleaning up the swamp. The alligators and snakes don’t like it.
MacIver News Service | February 16, 2011
"Currently, Wisconsin state employees pay less than 5 percent of the premium cost for family coverage (4.35 percent for union employees and 4.96 percent for non‐union employees). Thats lower than the 6.2 percent they paid in 2009, when Wisconsins employee contribution was the second‐lowest among Midwest states for family coverage.
Republican Governor Scott Walker has proposed raising the employee share of health insurance premiums to 12.4 percent, however even after the additional contribution, the contribution rate would still be less than the 2009 Midwest average for state government employees.
Moreover, the new rate would also be less than the employee contributions required at 85 percent of large Milwaukee‐area employers.
The proposed changes would cost the average state employee an additional $1,560 per year for family coverage, but the amount they would pay ($2,496) would still be significantly less than the $3,875 average premium contribution at large private‐sector employers in southeastern Wisconsin.
State employees will also continue to get much more for their money than their private sector counterparts, the study reads. The state plan offers more benefits, lower deductibles, co-pays and out of pocket maximums than the average private sector plan.
That damn Tim Kaine and he wants to come back here to Virginia to run for Senate. Screw him!
Yep. DNC, RATS, Unions, ACORN and ANSWER.
The alligators and snakes will only stay while box lunches are provided. Once the free stuff is gone, they’ll be heading back home to Momma’s basement.
Why was this moved from front page to blogs?
It is not a blog it is news or am I missing something?
They’ve done it time and time again in Chicago too.
Hmmm, would that work?
I’d love to know why as well.
Where is pelosi with her astroturf?
I’m wondering if OFA bussed the lawmakers to the resort.
“Update: Fleeing Wisconsin Dems Found Hiding Out at Illinois Resort”
Only one way to find out and that is ask. :)
Do we have a move everything to blogger DUmmie spy moderator or what LOL.
Please see post 34 and 37. Thanks.
I didn’t know there was a Sam Hill FReeper I was being a smartass as typing all those moderator names I was thinking sheesh ping everybody and Sam Hill and there really is a Sam Hill. LOL
This is not in bloggers. No mods moved this that we can see.
That is unbelievable! As MSNBC is probably reporting on how racist the BOR BO interview was. Or somehow painting the opposition to Obama and the union as nazi racists.
Thanks. :) But a minute or so ago it was in bloggers.
Or am I crazy and need new cheater glasses?
You’re crazy. ;)
Should I go get my eyes checked as well? :)
On second thought Sam Hill Did it. Yeah that’s it.
You could tell by the free t-shirts and hats (all red) that it was an astroturf crowd.
That, and the professionally printed signs, all alike.
They probably got a free bus ride, a box lunch, and $20 cash to go there.
This is a guy who said the US is comprised of 57 states, who's father, stepfather, and brothers are all muhammadans, and is in league with fellow marxists, sex perverts, domestic terrorists, and thieves.
IT IS AN INDICTMENT ON THE USA THAT THIS MUSLIM COMMUNIST SERVES AS POTUS.
In more civilized times, like in 1787, this shifty son of a whore and his comrades would be run out of town on a rail.
An electorate that puts Clinton in the WH twice, gives the insane al gore the popular vote, elects a not natural born muslim communist POTUS at least once, and then elects bushes three times and Reagan twice is an electorate that is mentally retarded.
The Republic is in great jeopardy AND IS IN DECLINE.
DRASTIC MEASURES ARE IN ORDER.
If he thinks people hate him now, wait until he and his comrades try to steal the WH in 2012.
This is going to be a SERIOUS fight.
The GOP may not survive if MYTH ROMNEY or some other crook gets the nomination, and for sure the unions will be going for broke to put more marxists in office, especially Hussein.
The next GOP POTUS needs to declare a Zero tolerance policy for marxists in US government.
Investigate and arrest members of the Congressional Progressive Caucusand Declare all States "Right to Work" states, no more forced compulsory union dues in order to keep your job.
Defund the marxist trade and government worker unions.
No one will pay union dues voluntarily.
Let the union workers give themselves a raise by not having to pay any more dues.
The next POTUS must cripple the corrupt and degenerate marxist public and private sector unions by declaring all States of this union to be "Right to Work States"
These new Republican governors have LARGE cojones!
