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?
Re: “And what is our side doing about it? It appears to be nothing. Where are our reps backing this governor?”
Get in tune with Fox sites — we are not ‘doing nothing.’
Make sure you take a look at all the right-minded sites on Facebook — Americans for Prosperity plans a massive counter-protest, pro Gov. Walker, gathering in Madison, WI tomorrow, Sat., at Noon. Numerous ‘R’ governors from other states are standing strong with Wisconsin’s governor.
There is so much on Facebook — people like us are making connections like crazy and comments are instantaneous —
FR is great as always, but be sure to check these other avenues as well.

Barack Hussein Obama is paranoid, vengeful, and obsessed with political enemies everywhere.
In 2012 the homoerotic rat party will look back on 2010 as a good year.
That is not the Constitutional role of the federal government.
Yes he is and doesn't forget, he's like a spoiled teenager.
Free trade does NOT mean: a slim majority of people can muscle their way into your work place, industry or business, and take away your individual rights to compete independently, form voluntary contracts, and interact with consumers and investors freely, as a worker, vendor, or service provider.
Unions, “organized labor” are protectionst rackets which control supply, fix price, and block entry by more able workers. Their sole purpose is to BLOCK entry, use inefficient seniority rules to promote and overpay mediocre staff, and to funnel a % of mandated dues skimmed off the unsuspecting and unwilling, to the DNC as steady ‘rat rents.
In the public sector, this means taxpayers in general are FORCED to pay taxes a chunck of which become union dues handed to Democrats.
UNIONS are not “protectors of democracy and freedom” - they are supporters of majoritarian tyranny various sectors of a free economy - a slim majority of socialist (compulsory union) people (’organizers’) act to suppress the free trade rights of others in what are ideally decentralized free markets.
They are too cowardly to simply QUIT a job - en mass - if they don’t like the pay & work tasks - and take their little group of disgruntled ‘activists’ off to another job — or go open their own “socially just” firm, and compete with the one they just quit.
No, they turn over the card table, if they don’t like free trade, and impose tyranny on the entire sector.
This hurts more able entrants (competitors), hurts consumers with high costs and stagnant service, and hurts investors (retired people, who put their savings on the line, to cut costs and finance a great product for the economy).
U N I O N S = C O W A R D S & T Y R A N T S!
I really hope you’re right and believe you are, decent and patriotic Americans will only be pushed so far.
Good post, that’s exactly what unions became many years ago. At one time there was a genuine need for them but that time has long since passed.
“...will make a lasting stain on the office and undermines the rule of law.”
When did Democrats ever care about the rule of law? (Not to mention stains on blue dresses.)
I would like to hook into what you’re saying, but I don’t do Facebook. Can you give a brief tutorial on how to connect with these organizations on Facebook?
Any help is appreciated.
Conservatives need to understand the hatred felt by the left towards them. In their minds we are the ultimate evil and they feel justified in using any tactics. They don’t respect us as legitimate voices of loyal opposition.
They imagine themselves in a fight to the death with Evil Incarnate.
If you were fighting for your life you would not be bound by any rules, least of all the US Constitution.
Liberals have no understanding of budgets. They have no view of spending. They have no view of shrinking tax base. Liberals are OBAMA!
Never during my life would I have ever imagined a sitting president’s campaign organization undermining a state government’s affairs.
Is this sedition?
He will be crushed. Hell, give me Carter. This moron has lost it.
Well said, and they are fighting for their lives and know it.
When they put Obama in office they thought they’d cut a fat hog but in reality they pulled the handle for their own demise.
Both he and their radical behavior is registering with the majority of Americans, like you say, they’re not bound by any rules.
I honestly don't know but if not it's coming pretty darned close.
Zer0's presidency has been like being smacked upside the head with a 2x4 for a lot of people. I can only speak for myself, but I suspect I'm not alone in this. Before April '09 and attending my first tea party, I was never that politically active. Like most right thinking people I was disgusted with the way Bush and the GOP didn't close the border and spent like drunken sailors, but I figured there was nothing we could do. Since the usurper assumed office all that changed. I find myself reading up more on the founders and the constitution, attending town hall meetings and letting my reps know when they're not doing their job.
If anything I know not to buy a lot of the bilge put out by the leadership of my union.
but in this case, they are seeking to derail a lawful legislative process.
The wages of liberal fascism. We have been warning people for years. They did not believe us.
Sadly the State can’t or rather shouldn’t uses them until someone gets physically hurt.
Andrew Johnson was impeached for much less, in my opinion.
I agree that we are going down the Chute But at Least with the appearance of Governor Walker we will go Down Fighting and after all the Years of Being Dictated to by Unions this IS GREAT!!!!!! Lets Join the Fight and Support This Courageous Man,we have Been Looking for People in Positions of Power to stand Up ,WELL WHAT THE HELL ARE WE LAMENTING ABOUT? THE BATTLE IS JOINED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn The Torpedoes Full Speed Ahead
