President Obama is a union thug
Last week when Gov. Scott Walker signed into law sweeping legislation to curb the power of Obama’s bloated public employee unions, it should have been case closed, a done deal.
Apparently this has not happened.
Shockingly, President Obama and his allies are trying to make Scott Walker and his supporters pay a heavy price for standing up for the taxpayers in their fight with the unions.
Already pro-Obama groups are setting up websites and circulating petitions to hold a recall election for Gov. Walker and eight Republicans who supported him.
Make no mistake about it, these far left groups are angry and furious.
Reuters explains why they are so hopping mad: “Unions -- a key source of funding for Democrats -- fear the Wisconsin law will bolster Republicans in other states to cut spending by targeting public workers. Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Florida and Iowa have similar legislative moves pending.”
And that’s not all. Wisconsin proves that our officials in Washington can also act, if they have the courage to do so.
Obama and his big union allies would love to turn back the clock in Wisconsin.
We can’t let that happen!
Many thought our efforts to help Scott Walker would end when he signed this bill into law.
They are wrong!
We must continue to back him and his supporters at this critical time – Go Here Now.
Over the weekend, Obama’s bloated public unions sunk to a new low, threatening the citizens who’ve donated to Scott Walker.
In a mafia-like letter from the “Don” of the Wisconsin police union, a local businessman is being threatened with payback.
The letter, exposed by WTMJ radio host Charlie Sykes, opens by informing the businessman that the police union knows he’s “among [Governor Walker’s] largest contributors.”
Then like Don Corleone in "The Godfather," the police union boss offers the businessman “an offer he can’t refuse.”
Here’s an excerpt from the letter:
"The undersigned groups would like your company to publicly oppose Governor Walker’s efforts… In the event that you cannot support this effort… please be advised that the undersigned will publicly and formally boycott… your company. However, if you join us, we will do everything in our power to publicly celebrate your partnership."
It was signed by the head of a Wisconsin police union!
And that’s just the tip of the sleazeberg.
Scott Walker held a fundraising event on Saturday, where his supporters were greeted by a goon squad.
“One person videotaped the license plates of at least some of the vehicles that entered,” reported the Duluth News Tribune.
“Protesters banged pots, shook tambourines at car windows and sounded horns. Most of the drivers and their passengers stared straight ahead.”
This is simply outrageous.
If Obama really believed in “civility” he would call off his attack dogs.
Team Obama is desperate to “reverse” our big victory in Wisconsin. They know what’s at stake.
We expect a plague of Democrat lawsuits, more mob chaos, and well-funded recall campaigns against GOP senators.
They won’t stop.
But neither will the League of American Voters.
We have been the leading national organization supporting Scott Walker.
Obama’s allies and the big unions continue to pour millions into Wisconsin.
They claim this was not one battle, but a “war.”
Frankly, we have to see it that way too.
We have been fighting fight fire with fire.
Your donations and support to the League of American Voters helped Scott Walker and state legislators stay firm and win this battle.
But now we must continue our efforts to support Scott Walker and keep public opinion on his side.
The League is also gearing up for other state battles.
With your help we made a victory in Wisconsin possible.
But the war isn’t over.
We urgently need your help to support Gov. Walker and to expose the outrageous behavior of Obama’s allies — Please Donate Here Now.
P.S. When the League entered the Wisconsin fight, the big media said support for Scott Walker was eroding and that he would have to “compromise” with the big unions. With your help we fought hard to expose the unions and Obama’s allies. Scott Walker stood firm. Now Team Obama wants to make him pay a heavy price. We can’t let that happen. We need to keep up our media campaign in Wisconsin in support of Gov. Walker as we prepare for other key state battles.Dick Morris says the League is “the most effective grassroots organization in America.” We stopped Obama’s “public option” plan which would have ended private health insurance. We led the fight – and won – to renew the Bush Tax Cuts. And now your donations and support to the League of American Voters helped Scott Walker in this battle. We need to win this war and with your help we will!Donate Here Now
