Obama: Imagine if workers could shut down a factory just because they didnít get what they want
Hot Air ^ | OCTOBER 3, 2013 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Via Charles Cooke. Imagine it. Imagine a movement so selfish that it would sabotage the operations of a venture on which vast numbers of people depend simply to gain leverage for its own agenda. Then imagine that that movement grew in numbers to the point where it could elect its own bought-and-paid-for politicians to do its bidding. Who knows how much havoc it could wreak? When you think about it, Democrats are right: It really is a sort of terrorism.

Am I awake?

uhhhh...they could if they paid for that factory and decided it was wasting their money. In fact, they'd probably insist that the things wasting money were shut down.

Obama is not a 100 watt light bulb when it comes to coherent, logical arguments.

One problem with the analogy - factories typically produce something of value.

Imagine if a bank could shut down a factory just because they didn’t get the loan repaid.....

Imagine if a government could shut down a factory just because they didn’t get over due taxes...........

Imagine if a government could shut down a factory just because they didn’t like the overseas wood you used in your prodect...........

OOPs, let me correct

Imagine if the owners could shut down a factory just because they didn’t get what they want!

Your union thug buddies will do that as soon as you issue an executive order making card check the “law of the land, pretty cool” as Paul “the Forehead” Begala once said.

No one will know. This remark, like all the insane remarks he spews, won’t be broadcast on the Nightly News to the people.

“Isn’t that what a strike is?”

Interesting that he chose that analogy as neither the Nazis or Soviets allowed workers to shut down factories. But it’s been happening here since the American Revolution.

Don’t unions do just that? Unless of course they are promised that the stockholders will be thrown out and the union will own the company and run the company.....

I thought this might be satire, so I went to the YT link and watched it.

How they hell can a guy this obtuse get elected President? Failure of the press, and a compromised high school and college educational system.
