Posted on 05/21/2011 5:00:06 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Kind of disappointing--nothing about Republicans head-butting widows or knocking the crutches from the arms of the disabled. Even so, let's give Damon Silvers credit: the union boss did claim that Republicans "literally deny clothing to foster kids to give rich people tax cuts."
AFL-CIO honcho Damon Silvers made the hysterically hyperbolic claim on Cenk Uygur's MSNBC show this evening.

Great coming from a person that makes his living taking money from men and women that actaully work to earn the money......
Union thug claims Republicans “literally deny clothing to foster kids to give rich people tax cuts.”
Eeevil Republican ping to Today show list.
Foster kids don’t make any jobs with their clothing.
By the looks of this guy he was created in a lab AKA young frankenstien, Peter Boyle watch out!
You mean he didn’t cover all the third world people who are infected with diseases we’ve engineered? I’m going to have to try harder!
a white, Harvard educated lawyer who is a spokeshole for the unions & HE hates rich people?....BWHAHAHAHA
It’s been said this election is going to be one of the nastiest we’ll experience. I think it’s going to be a lot more than mud slinging. It’s going to get very nasty! and the media is going to be on board.
Union have about a 5% approval rating. People think all they do it take, even worst than rich people.
Michele Bachmann provided foster care for 23 children. How many for this critic?
AFL-CIO honcho Damon Silvers made the hysterically hyperbolic claim on Cenk Uygur's MSNBC show this evening.The only mystery is, why does Cenk Uygur have a show? Oh yeah, it sez it's MSNBC.
When we are all out of money because of government spending all the children will be left behind.
We were foster parents. Fostered one whom we adopted. Then very short term for a few others. But enough so that I really do admire someone like Michelle. One worry is that one of these kids she raised is going to pop up and accuse her of something. Just saying. That’s often what adults who were foster children do.
Exactly. Hard for these thugs to hold candle to Bachmann or most any conservative when it comes to real compassion - defined by what you do with your own money and not what you do with other peoples money.
This election will be union thugs versus the Union.
You are correct about that...but I don't think its going to work.
In the past all of these ridiculous charges worked because the American economy was booming, most folks were doing well and the people making those charges "appeared" to be members of the downtrodden. The general feeling was that America was rich enough to afford to take care of everyone and anyone who disagreed with that was meanspirited. Now, the economy isn't doing well, people are more concerned about their own wellbeing and are also suspicious of the wealthy memebers of the unions, academia and the media who are making the ridiculous charges.
Yes, it will be a tough election cycle, but I feel that most Americans are wary now of the left and more concerned about what kind of country we will leave to our children/grandchildren.
Eek! A ‘Cass Sunstein’ clone...
Overcharging governments with outrageous union labor rates is not harming the foster kids?
stupid. they just sound stupid now
Bank on it. The hatemongers of the left are sharpening their claws. MediaMatters, dKos, MoveOn and all of the rest are going to attempt to destroy any and all Republicans, no matter how dirty or dishonest they have to get.
I am heartless this year, but I am not sure what is wrong with his accusation. Other than it is probably baseless and false.
As Rush would say, don’t worry. It’s MSNBC, so nobody saw it.
I guess this clown would support people like Clinton who donate their used underware for the tax deduction.
People like this union goon infuriate me to the point of wanting to choke the living daylights out of them for their arrogance and stupidity. The same old tired class-warfaring bs
Tactics of collectivist totalitarians. Thanks for the ping and for watching and bringing these names (Damon Silvers) to our attention.
Nice suit. Great tie.
The fact is the choice is between Harry Reid's Cowboy Poets (or pick another boondoggle) and allowing hard working Americans to keep more of their own money.
Did anyone ask this clown what his salary is and how much he contributes to charity? Embarrass the retards.
Unions know Obama can’t run on his record so the only thing they can do is try a hit piece on the Republicans,expect this to happen right up to election day,MSM gives nod.
Heard Obama’s going to tap the banking system to distribute funds for his campaign via hand outs to moveon.org and the rest of those organizations who funnel money. So we’re actually paying for his campaign.
MSNBC is still on the air?
“....no matter how dirty or dishonest they have to get”.
Yes indeed, however I suspect much of the dirty work will be done behind the scenes as far as where the money comes from. It will be hidden behind a cloak of supporting their organization as being a community helps program...with only enough revenus given those projects to claim such. They are experts as “laundry washing” and that they will do successfuly. Reason..no one will stop them til after the fact and it won’t matter after the fact.
Peter Boyle assumed room temperature several years ago
So... how many union thugs offered to give your foster kids clothes?
I think I know the answer.
Thank you, DemocRATS. Thank you, Unions.
We had a family of five deaf children (only for a week but what a week) and went to K-Mart for clothes and back packs (free) and free Pizza from Pizza Hut. Evil corporations and small business owners.
Where does your paycheck come from Demon Silvers?
