Posted on 03/03/2012 8:00:55 AM PST by VU4G10
Several unions that back President Obamas reelection bid are spending big in an effort to damage Mitt Romney in key GOP primary states.
Unions including The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are making ad buys to hit the Republican presidential contenders on issues key to their members, including immigration reform and the bailout of the auto industry.

Good! They’re spending like crazy in Wisconsin too. I hope they bankrupt themselves.
Both Communist Party affiliated unions.
Are the unions attempting to damage Romney in the Primaries or is this an attempt for Romney to win sympathy votes?
If you assume the sleaziest and most cynical motives to anything Mittens does, you will never go wrong.
In matters of honor, Obamney is useful only as a contrarian indicator.
Never thought I’d be pro union but if this is the case, I am now.
The enemy of my enemy, in this instance, is my friend.
Anything that damages and destroys, using his history, the candidacy of the Progressive Liberal Mitt Romney is just fine by me no matter where it comes from.
No, The enemy of your enemy is NOT your friend.
Maybe it will take until after the votes are in on Super Tuesday for a lot of you to realize that your choice next November will be between Romney and Obama. That is just the way it will be, so live with it. I have been holding my nose and voting for Republicans every 4 years since Ronald Reagan was no longer on the Ballot. I will do it again in 2012 and I suggest that if you care for the future of America, you will do the same. We just can’t afford 4 more years of Obama.

I don’t know who you are referring to but it’s not me.
I agree that it will be between Mittens and Obama. But I beg to differ with you about the outcome.
We have a 2 party system. With no chance of coalition building and a winner take all setup most voters will always have to hold their nose, at least to some extent, to cast a vote for the lesser of two evils in general elections. This is all the more true for activists and committed ideologues on the left and right. This is not going to change, it is only once or twice in a lifetime that a committed conservative will actually be excited to vote for a candidate at the presidential level. For most us, the last one was Reagan. We may not see something like that again in most of our remaining time on this earth. This is reality folks. It sucks, but it is what it is.
I will vote for the eventual GOP nominee too, but Romney is a loser. He is not just a political chameleon, he doesn't connect with people on almost any level. A Mitt nomination means a likely narrow election loss. The only mildly positive thing to say about him would be that as he won't be much of a lightning rod he probably won't do us too much damage down ballot.
A lot can happen in 8 months. Obviously, the incumbent has a lot of advantages in manipulating data, money and propaganda but often times there are events that even he can’t control. We’ll see.
Anything that stops Romney is good.
Wow. I am suddenly in support of organized labor.
