The Liberal Media is trying to portray Obama as the 21st century FDR so Obama should embrace FDR position on Public Unions and dissolve them!!
FDR believed that “[a] strike of public employees manifests nothing less than intent on their part to obstruct the operations of government until their demands are satisfied. Such action looking toward the paralysis of government by those who have sworn to support it is unthinkable and intolerable.” What FDR feared about Public Unions is playing out in the streets of Detroit!!
The unions are the ones dissolving the jobs so they can gain more money for the jobs going to 3rd world developing nations they are done with USA just window shows now jobs are going more and more not many low skilled industry for the High School drop out no trade jobs DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICAN HAVE sold the people out now they point fingers it's one GOVERNMENT so anything BOTH SIDES ARE RESPONSIBLE BUT they have the FOOLS who all fall for the finger pointing

Could be because it's not true: " "Findings are that the number of businesses and self-employed are greater on average in right-to-work states, but employment, wages, and per-capita personal income are all lower on average in right-to-work states," Stevans wrote.

But he noted that there was little "trickle down" from the business owners to the workers--the laws benefitted the business owners who did not have to contend with union contracts, but business employees didn't get those same positive effects--as evidenced by the lower salaries on average."

Your wife kicked you to the curb the minute she had enough funds to get away. Wonder why?

The topic was hatred and extremism.
I gave you several examples of Republiclown hatred and extremism towards Obama.
Rather than show Democrat hatred and extremism, you changed the subject. Meaning you don't have anything but accusations.
You always do that when you're cornered.
Spin, little Lorac, spin!!
No comparision to the kind of hatred - and violence - coming from your side of the fence.

You must have not been paying attention during GW Bush's two terms.

Someone even wrote a book on how to assassinate him.

The liberal media just looked the other way.

Try and imagine someone writing a book like that about Obama.

Speaking of lying sacks of shit, there's the Republiclown standard bearer;
PolitiFact Awards 'Lie Of The Year' To Romney Jeep Ad
""We have come to the end of another year, and so it is once again time for PolitiFact to tell us what the 2012 "Lie Of The Year" is. For me, it's pretty obvious. The 2012 Lie Of The Year is, "Trust me, this pumpkin ale tastes great."
But that wasn't deemed a serious enough falsehood by the fact check industry, and so PolitiFact has instead chosen a winner from a list of untrue things that politicians and pundits said, with a special emphasis on the 2012 campaign season -- which is why "we are winning/succeeding in/going to win/going to succeed in that War in Afghanistan" did not make the cut.
This year, PolitiFact has singled out Mitt Romney's campaign ad that made an untrue claim about President Barack Obama, Chrysler, and jobs building Jeeps being sent to China. "It was a lie," says PolitiFact, "told in the critical state of Ohio in the final days of a close campaign."
In case you missed the controversy, PolitiFact offers a recap:
It originated with a conservative blogger, who twisted an accurate news story into a falsehood. Then it picked up steam when the Drudge Report ran with it. Even though Jeep's parent company gave a quick and clear denial, Mitt Romney repeated it and his campaign turned it into a TV ad.
In political media circles, the process described above is also known as "weekdays." But what perhaps set this occasion apart, PolitiFact says, is the fact that the Romney campaign stood by the ad "even after the media and the public expressed collective outrage against something so obviously false."
A big reason reporters expressed outrage is because the Romney campaign had baited them almost a year earlier. After they expressed some alarm that a Romney ad from the fall of 2011 was entirely based on a hysterical lie, a Romney operative said that the campaign absolutely intended to keep lying in its ads, because that was the entire point of them:
First of all, ads are propaganda by definition. We are in the persuasion business, the propaganda business…. Ads are agitprop…. Ads are about hyperbole, they are about editing. It’s ludicrous for them to say that an ad is taking something out of context…. All ads do that. They are manipulative pieces of persuasive art.""
----------
Romney lied as part of his campaign strategy, admitted to by one of his people. How'd that work out for him??
Don't worry, emaam, you've still got Herman Cain, with his 9-9-9 pack of lies.
Stay stupid, you guarentee Democrats the future!!
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Not only that:
" Advocating for the working man doesn’t pay too poorly, it seems. Here’s a list of the annual salaries and benefits earned by the nation’s top labor officials, according to the Labor Department. This data is based on 2011 filings: AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka –$293,750. National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel –$460,060
Service Employees International Union President Mary Kay Henry –$290,334.
American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees President Gerald McEntee –$512,489.
International Brotherhood of Teamsters President James P. Hoffa , Jr.–$372,489.
American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten –$493,859.
International Association of Fire Fighters President Harold Schaitberger –$323,811."
Sounds like a Who's Who in the 1% crowd.

An inexperienced Florida health care caseworker who visited a client at his home knew there was something that made her 'very uncomfortable' about the 53-year-old man, even writing in his file that two people should visit him in the future. Yet 25-year-old Stephanie Ross went alone to Lucious Smith's apartment Monday morning, and police said the ex-con with a history of violence inexplicably chased her down the street, stabbing her to death with a butcher knife.

I had to log back on briefly just to post yet ANOTHER stupid comment by a dumb negro. Typical leftist fascist. He IS a funny little negro though........:-

Harry Belafonte says President Obama should ‘work like 3rd world dictator’ put GOP in jail

Harry Belefonte was interviewed by Al Sharpton on MSNBC today and offered President Obama some advice on handling the GOP and opponents.

“That there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people [Republicans, Conservatives, and The Tea Party], the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama, and I don’t know what more they want. The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a 3rd world dictator and just put all these guys in jail.”

They'd have no benefits if not for the Union. DUH
Y'know, you only need to look as far as WalMart, where they treat American citizens like POW's.
That's why Unions are necessary. To stop predatory caitalists from exploiting workers.
You don't know anythig about anything!!
(But you're real good at saying dumb things.)
Unions represent about 8% if the work force, yet about 58 percent of the work force have employer sponsored health insurance. Blows your theory out of the water.
