Unions Prep to Carry Water for Dems

As if you need any more proof that union bosses exploit middle class workers and cop-opt their organizations to be nothing more than accessories to a political party, behold:

Union leaders will unleash a concerted attack against Republican candidates and their “right-wing agenda” beginning this Labor Day weekend as they rally to stem expected Democratic losses in November’s midterm elections.


Mr. Trumka said the federation will play roles in more than 400 races nationwide, promoting its election agenda with a “massive mobilization” in 26 states. It will focus on 70 House races as well as Senate, gubernatorial and state legislative contests.

If unions are worried about jobs, perhaps they should stop supporting party policies that lead to job destruction – or lack of construction … jobs, that is.

Dana Show Contributor Roger Stone Calls It on Obama

From the US Report:

Stone pegged this president perfectly even before he was elected. In October, 2008, Stone explained what would come of hope, change and politics: “The downside of yes, we can is the expectations of [Obama’s] voters—I want it now…Two years from now, nothing will change. There’s nothing new about this guy, except he’ll have warmed up to his Palestinian friends by then.”

Stone’s analysis was, as usual, spot on. Those ‘Palestinian friends’ of course are all for the mosque. The NY Post reported Mahmoud al-Zahar, Hamas’ cofounder and current chief, said, “Islam is controlling every source of our life as regard to marriage, divorce, our commercial relationships.”

No word on how that approach figures in the US Constitution.

For the neophytes: who is Stone?

Majority of Americans Want Health Control Law Repealed

This can’t be good for Democrats rolling into midterms. Maybe that’s why they’re being encouraged not to mention it.

Support for repeal of the health care reform bill is at its highest level in over a month, while the number of voters who believe repeal will be good for the economy has reached a new high.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 60% at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care reform law, while 36% oppose repeal.

Those numbers include 50% who Strongly Favor repeal and 26% who Strongly Oppose it.

Blame Bush? Not Anymore

The latest Rasmussen poll will leave Democrats digging deep in their depleted bag of tricks for some way around this:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters now think Obama’s policies are to blame for the continuing bad economy, up three points from last month. Forty-seven percent (47%) say the recession that began under Bush is at fault.
