Posted on 09/14/2010 7:01:03 AM PDT by Slyscribe
During a backyard event with some supporters in Fairfax, Va., today, President Obama conceded something that all observers of Big Labor politics in Washington have known for a while: Card check legislation is dead. But he told supporters of the law not to worry since the administration has other ways of doing this:
Frankly, we dont have 60 votes in the Senate. So the opportunity to actually get this passed right now is not real high. What weve done instead is try to do as much as we can administratively to make sure that its easier for unions

Blocking “card check” has been a giant victory by the GOP for the rights of workers to maintain their long-cherished secret ballot.
We should all remember that the GOP, RINOs included, did at least one thing right.
Likewise, we should never forget that the news media sided with union goons *against* the rights of workers.

How’d that work out for him?
There is nothing in this article at link worth reading. Of course Obama is going to say this, the unions are his base contributers. Plus they challenged some democrats he supported like Sen Lincoln in the democrat primary.
Obama will use 'regulations' to achieve his agenda....he will send his UNION Goons to enforce them....SIEU, UAW, Black Panthers etc.......
He fell victim to the guillotine, also...............
Yes, such is the way of human events. Somebody’s got to be the first to pull the lever...but it’s usually someone else who is the last to pull the lever.
Exactly what is this “unfair” disadvantage Obama believes the unions are suffering? As I understand the current law, any union can go into any workplace and lobby the employees to join, set up meetings, schedule votes, etc. as long as they do not disrupt production. How is that an unfair disadvantage?
The basrard (and he is one) needs to be impeached.
