Message to Wisconsin taxpayers: President Obama and the Democratic National Committee have declared war on you. Message to other states: Youre next.
The political unrest in Wisconsin, billed as some kind of grass-roots uprising, is being organized and directed by Barack Obamas Organizing for America and the Democratic National Committee. This development is consistent with Mr. Obamas instructions for supporters to get in the face of those who oppose them, but in this case, they are seeking to derail a lawful legislative process.
On Thursday, 14 Democratic state lawmakers fled Wisconsins capital to prevent the legislature from conducting official business. Dan Grandone, state director for the presidents campaign apparatus, accused Gov. Scott Walker of ignoring Wisconsin voices today and asking for the power to drown them out permanently tomorrow. It is important to note that the voices of which Mr. Grandone speaks are not those of the public at large. Voters sent an unmistakable message in November by taking solid majorities in the state Assembly and Senate away from Democrats and handing even greater control to Republicans. Mr. Walker, a Republican, won by six points over the incumbent Democrat.
That the protesters speak in a different voice can be seen in the signs they carry. Many compare Mr. Walker to Hitler, Mussolini or Hosni Mubarak. One placard had the slogan Repeal Walker with the governors head in sniperscope cross hairs. This is the symbolism that Democrats recently denounced as hate-filled rhetoric, and it is far from the voice of the public. It is rather the voice of an entitled class that seeks by any means to stop its free ride from coming to an end.

We tried to tell ‘em back in November 2008. A commie fascist dictator without any proof that he’s even an American was not the way to go.
If need be, perhaps explaining it to Mr 0bama in his own words might be useful...
We WON, You LOST!
So you all can get in the back seat, but we don’t want you all talking too much while we solve the problem you made.
There, now maybe he will understand.
Our country is going down the chit chute
Attempting to overthrow a duly elected state government.
Yes...Obama, OFA, Dems and unions are all complicit.
Yeah, I guess this is what a “Community Organizer” is really good at...fomenting anarchy and mob rule. They had an election last fall and elected leaders are following through on what they were elected to do.
These dems and leftists only accept democracy when the vote goes their way. When it doesn’t, they do anything to contravene democracy.
Yup! Some of us really tried hard. And most of us was willing to accept McCain over the lying con jackass Obama. We tried to convince some of the hard heads that it was better to accept the lesser of the two evils than lose America. Most of us knew hope and change was communists inspired. Here we are, really messed up and the garbage still supports King Obama.
Governor Walker should sue Obama in federal court on the grounds that his supporting the storming of the Wisconsin capitol and AWOL Democrats is unconstitutional, and maybe even a high crime and misdemeanor.
Article IV Section 4:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
Obama (and now Pelosi) is openly working to undermine the Republican Form of Government in Wisconsin by blocking the state's legislative process, essentially attacking it by using its apparatus against itself. He is effectively supporting the overthrow of the legislative process in Wisconsin by ignoring the Wisconsin State Constitution, just as he is ignoring the United States Constitution.
Obama, and his henchmen should be blocked and restrained from approaching Wisconsin legislators on the grounds that it violates the federal government's Article IV requirement to "guarantee... a Republican Form of Government" in Wisconsin.
But, noooooooooo! He’s the one! /s
About time for a contingent of the National Guard, wouldn’t you say?
King Obama, the Rabble Rousing Community Organizer. Set on fomenting as many of these “uprisings” as it takes to sink this country. Hiding behind a thin veneer of respectability.
The revolution is afoot Watson. (That is, the psychotic scu*bags are feeling their oats, supported by
El Senor Presidente.)
Ditto to everything you said FRiend.
You may not be far off. For POTUS to side with the likes of people he is siding with now will make a lasting stain on the office and undermines the rule of law.
These fools in Wisconsin had better be VERRRRY careful....
You see, not everyone you will come across in the real world is so tolerant of foolishness and believe it or not, many people take the threats that these apes are screaming seriously and will do what is necessary to defend themselves, their families and country....it only takes one.....
And what is our side doing about it? It appears to be nothing. Where are our reps backing this governor?
