Obama to governors: Stop vilifying public employees!
hotair.com ^ | 2-28-11 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 02/28/2011 10:14:23 AM PST by Justaham

Barack Obama addressed the nation’s governors today with sympathy over budgetary crises, but a warning not to solve their shortfalls by infringing on the rights of public employees. He also scolded governors for vilifying and denigrating PEUs, which raises the question of whether Obama has bothered to look at the protests in Wisconsin and elsewhere. Besides, the governors in question are mainly fighting to limit collective bargaining rights to a standard that the federal government prohibits for its own employees.

0bama, the “great uniter”, has now managed to create yet another class warfare between public and private employees. And it is clear that he sides with the union public employees over the TAXPAYERS of this nation.

Was Walker walking around his office carrying a “Unions Suck” sign? And the MSM missed this? Hard to believe.

Yes and Barry needs to butt out of the business of the 50 sovereign states. Rick Perry who I think is the current head of the Governor’s Council needs to come out and tell Obama to kiss off.

This POS 0dumbo knows he can say anything he wants and NO )ONE will call him on it.
No GOP Gov has denigrated or insulted one single Public employee/ union member.

But by saying it 0dumbo personalizes it for the idiot screaming union thugs ( I am not a governor and I will insult the thugs)

Damn I wish media would call this POS out.

Amazing how protecting taxpayers from corrupt unions is "vilifying and denigrating" public employees.

How can Obama possibly think this can end well for him and the unions?

You’d think that the federal government would be proud that it doesn’t allow meddlesome unions to shut it down. Of course, Hussein Osama couldn’t recognize a good policy if it slapped him in the belly.

Interesting that taking FDR’s position that public service jobs should not be unionized is vilifying public workers.

Obozo is vilifying taxpayers for wanting a little bit more bang for their tax dollar. 80% pensions after 20 years of service followed by double dipping on the same job is a bunko device regularly employed by public workers that enriches them while ripping off the taxpayer.

Being a “public servant” and feeing the need to unionize are two totally antithetical positions.

“Vilifying the public employees”? You idiot O-hole, the Governor is trying to insure they continue to have jobs. There is no money!!!!! Either the employees make some concessions or they have no job at all, their choice.

Just look at all the vicious messages on the signs carried by the protestors and union thugs that are directed at Republican lawmakers, the Tea Party and the governor. The union has been trying to villify them for weeks and nothing is said about that. More hypocracy from Obama.

Well, I take that back. What about the other eight states? LOL

He actually asked his staff, “How many have we visited? 57?” And then he added, “And we still have one more to go.”

It was an honest mistake. Obama likes to claim those other eight stealth states are in his camp. He’s on his way to making sure equality prevails donsha know.
