Skip to comments.BREAKING!! Carney: Wisconsin Gov. Walker's Actions Violate Obama Principles
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 Walkers 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 states 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 presidents 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.

How about Obama call on his thugs to come together and STOP THREATENING the lives of our elected representatives!!
Is this from The Onion?
The Principal of Pie?
Obama is an idiot.
My entire existence is a violation of Obama principles.
“Principles” and obama are two words that are mutually exclusive.
Nice to hear from ya ...more prayers your way
That’s not true. Even Satan has principles.
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.
Obmama has principles? That’s a good one! Har Dee Har Har!
MEDDLING IS STATE POLITICS IS NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS!.........
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.
I’ll be looking forward to the response. Someone needs to put this punk Administration really into its place.
The words “Obama” and “principles” cannot even be used in the same sentence.
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.
I got yer principles hangin’ right heah, Mr. Obama. ;-)
And an unprincipled idiot at that.
Hope you’re doing well, Jim!
Obama/Schmuck, you need to stay the **** out of state’s business.
