Obama Tries to Work His Magic In Wisconsin
President Obama has injected himself into an area in which the president of the United States has no authority or business in the first place as he has sent his political operatives to the state of Wisconsin to help organize protests of the governor’s plan to cut back on the union benefits of state employees.
Obama accused Scott Walker, the state's Republican governor, of unleashing an "assault" on unions in pushing emergency legislation that would change future collective-bargaining agreements that affect most public employees, including teachers.
This administration has gone so far as to have SEIU thugs bused in to provide some muscle for the union protesters. With civil wars and rebellions breaking out in the middle east, oil prices surging higher at an alarming pace, and a federal deficit spiraling out of control, you have to wonder where President Obama finds the time to meddle in the affairs of various states.
He said he was alarmed when Bush's deficit reached 5% of GDP, but now his own budget defit is at 20% of GDP.
President Obama called former President Bush incompetent for having a $240 billion deficit, while his own one year deficit is eight times larger, at well over $2 trillion.
Even more significant is that President Obama and the Democrat super majorities in Congress added $4 trillion to the national debt in just two short years. The total national debt now stands at 100% of GDP, which means it might take many decades for America to recover.
Having completely botched managing federal expenditures, President Obama now feels confident he has the skill and expertise to manage the Wisconsin state budget.
Unlike President Obama he cannot print more money or borrow money from China, so that future generations of Wisconsin taxpayers can pay it back.
Plus, since he is a Republican, the media will leap on him with both feet if he fails to follow the law on this.
He won't get a pass on this like President Obama does.
