The famous amateur golfer made the city an offer they couldn’t refuse.
Obama has time for this but can’t get it together on Iraq.A small man fixing small problems,the big stuff is over his head.
Just a thought - pitting a left/commie group against their petty commie leader would be a win-win no matter what the outcome.
Well, he did have a busy fathers day weekend. Golfing, telling UC Irvine grads (sarcastically) that deniers are liars, golfing, worrying about something someplace far away. Maybe in state #55 or 56. More golf. Raising some money for lib/prog/socialist/commie contenders for the upcoming (s)elections. Maybe some more golf. The poor guy never gets a break. /s off.
The alleged republican governor has no balls. He should be using the unions as an example of wasting tax dollars on union enrichment. It pisses me off to no end that my tax dollars go to subsidize the commutes of lazy ass, liberal city folks and at the same time pay union goons exorbanant wages for jobs that a monkey could so. If the people in Philadelphia want their trains and buses, then let them pay full fare.
Railroad workers can be ordered back to work under Federal railroad law. Even without that, SEPTA serves commuters from New Jersey on at least two of its lines, so there’s no governing oversight from one state anyway.
Obama isn’t president anymore. He is now the Tnediserp.
