6. Labor leaders in Wisconsin have praised President Obama in their speeches to protesters. Get a clue.
Edited on Fri Feb-25-11 03:18 PM by ClarkUSA
That's why they expressed thanks to Pres. Obama for his support in their speeches to protesters. It's funny how no one in Wisconsin seems to think President Obama isn't doing or saying enough, eh?

Perhaps Thom Hartmann, Obama supporters, and the labor leaders in Wisconsin know something you don't:

BTW, why aren't you ragging on Howard Dean, Alan Grayson, and other alleged liberal oracles for not saying a single word so far? By your yardstick, they are not leaders, yet they no doubt remain cherished by many here still.

  - Bernie's contribution has no bearing on and does not detract from the president.  AtomicKitten   Feb-25-11 03:38 PM   #14 
  - Not as a wedge -- I think it should be a model for Obama  Armstead   Feb-25-11 03:45 PM   #16

        - LOL! Your sample includes Walker voters! Show me the unions who got him elected who are saying that.  Dr Fate   Feb-25-11 04:14 PM   #24 
           - It's a poll of WI voters - yes they come in all flavors - and it's clear what they want.  AtomicKitten   Feb-25-11 05:00 PM   #29 
              - The Unions who elected Obama disagree with you & Walker voters. They call for national solidarity.  Dr Fate   Feb-25-11 05:07 PM   #30 
                 - The president has already declared solidarity with the unions & with this WI protest in particular.  AtomicKitten   Feb-25-11 05:21 PM   #31 
                    - So you are wrong to suggest in post #29 that this is soley a WI concern & not a national issue.  Dr Fate   Feb-25-11 05:26 PM   #32
