BREAKING!! Carney: Wisconsin Gov. Walker's Actions Violate Obama Principles
nj ^ | 3/10/2011 | rebecca kaplan

Posted on 03/10/2011 1:42:06 PM PST by milwguy

The Obama administration weighed in Thursday on the chaos in Madison, Wis.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s decision to force a bill on public employee union bargaining rights through the state Senate on Wednesday night was a clear sign that his top priority was not budget-cutting.

“The actions taken last night, which divorced the issue of the state’s budget problems from the issue of the rights of public sector employees, pretty clearly showed that the actions were not following the principle that we need to all come together and work together and not denigrate or vilify public sector employees, but bring them into the process,” Carney said.

He later reinforced that idea in a tweet, writing, “POTUS says we must come together & set aside partisanship to fix our budgets. Actions last night in Wisconsin violate those principles.”

Carney reiterated the president’s stance that everyone, including public-sector employees, needs to make sacrifices to cut spending, but that budget shortfalls should not be used to “denigrate or vilify public employees.”

“Principles” and obama are two words that are mutually exclusive.

First time I have seen the two words used in the same sentence, lol.

‘Jive Talkin’ Jay Carney must have thought that one up on his own.

This is funny! Work together? Just like the way the Dems and Obama worked together during the Obamacare debacle?

(By the way Carney, to change the subject, drill here, drill now!)

And apparently the best way to do that is for the democrats to run away to Illinois.

0bama’s federal workers do not even have collective bargaining “rights” for salary; WI public sector workers will still be able to bargain on salary. Hypocrisy knows no bounds if you are a Leftist.

This could be nothing more than politial grandstanding, or it could be the first step in preparing a case to invoke Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution wherein the US guarantees the states a republican form of government.

“BREAKING!! Carney: Wisconsin Gov. Walker’s Actions Violate Obama Principles”

So the whims of the dictator trump the rule of law? I don’t know how else to interpret this.

Is this an example Obama bullying Walker?

What a small, small man Obama is. He, for lack of better words, disgusts me.

While the brave GOP members in WI last night finally acted on the reason people voted for them, Obama had a Wednesday night “Hoops Party” and watched the Chicago Bulls dribble and shoots balls into a basket.

“...not denigrate or vilify public sector employees, but bring them into the process.”

They were brought into the process. They had the same rights to vote as everyone else. Representatives were elected. Some of tehm chose to TAKE THEMSELVES out of the process by leaving the state. What the *%!! is BHO talking about?!

“The actions taken last night, which divorced the issue of the state’s budget problems from the issue of the rights of public sector employees,

They may have removed the issue of the privileges of the public sector employees from a budget bill, but that is not akin to saying that those privileges do nothave a negative effect on the state budget. What a desperate parsing of events.

Jay Carney, indeed...he has joined the world's biggest, ugliest and most inept circus.

The Union employees are doing a great job of showing themselves up as the clueless jackasses they so obviously are.

It looks like the Democratic Socialists are still playing that same old projection card. It's the only one they apparently have left.

Thanks for using my line ‘Walker leads, Obama Reads’...We need a T-shirt with a teleprompter and a red circle with line, and below that, the phrase Walker leads, Obama reads.

Must be a typo. I’m sure the carny barker meant to say principals. Obama’s favorite school principals got violated.

Principles? Obama doesn’t know what principles are. All he’s got is what’s written on the teleprompter.
