Obama Abandoned the Union Bosses

President Obama distanced himself from the union bosses — his strongest ally — and they aren’t happy about it. Liberal commentator Paul Begala said the decision would mean there will be “hell to pay.” Charles Krauthammer said “In Wisconsin, Obama literally mailed it in.” The extent of his effort to help the union bosses were limited to 143 characters — he tweeted his support for the recall.

What are the union bosses going to do? Nothing. They are between a rock and a hard place. They are invested in this president and he has returned dividends for years. His decision to turn his back on them now leaves them bloodied and lonely but nothing will stop them from spending $1 billion in forced union dues to see this president elected — whether they have a smile on their face or not.
