Obama's Previous Pledge

Post by Guest on Sun Feb 27, 2011 9:56 am

This was dug up after our President refused to take a stand with WI protesters.

(2007 campaign trail)

"If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I’m in the White House, I’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself. I’ll walk on that picket line with you as president of the United States. The workers deserve to know that someone's standing with them.”

Pretty sad, eh............ Tell them anything they want to hear, and then stick it up their collective butts when elected.

I had heard about this. Either way it's a lose, lose situation. If he doesn't join the protesters he's slammed for going back on his word. If he joins the protesters he will be accused of wasting tax dollars during a financial crisis. Remember the flack when he went to India? How many talking heads talked about Obama wasting money on a diplomatic mission?

The double edged sword is, do you get involved in state politics, or not?

He still has time to go. I think these protests are going to go on for awhile.
