By The Right Scoop


Let Freedom Ring has produced another tough ad asking why the Obama administration chose to preserve the union pensions over that of nonunion workers (via Daily Caller):

Delphi nonunion workers who worked side by side with union workers lost their pensions after the General Motors Bailout. Union workers kept their pensions. Why Mr. President, Why?

Why Mr. President, Why? is a project of Let Freedom Ring that seeks to ask important questions about President Obama’s policies.

If you aren’t familiar with the Delphi story, this post will catch you up.

    I have worked in the same industry for 35 years. Never once have I thought that we needed a union where I work. It is a shame how these non-union workers were treated.

    This crony capitalism stuff is a dems wet dream. They can blame capitalism for the loss of jobs and pensions AND build up support and money through their union buddies.

    NOT ANYMORE!! Thanks to sites like this, radio, new media, and THE TEA PARTY we’re onto you hypobamacrat!

    In obama-ese, “working families” actually means “working union families”. Obama doesn’t give a rat’s crap about the former because they have not contributed millions to his campaign.

    Unions are among the most loyal voting bases money can buy. You scabby non-Union plebes are not part of a voting bloc. You are worthless to the Left. Therefore…

    …YOU GET NOTHING!

    Mary Miller: You’re an idiot, if that’s really a question. Your union buddy is part of a leftist, organized crime family that is a regular, deep pocket contributor to the other crime syndicate that’s currently in political power: the DNC. That‘s why Obama couldn’t give a holy, flying f**k about you, your family, or whether you live, die or sell pencils on a street corner.

    • Landscaper

      VX, I agree with everything you said PAST the first sentance. But calling Mary Miller an idiot is harsh brother. I get your point and it’s spot on correct. Perhaps she and the others were now allowed to join or chose not to…..

    I want to know why Obama isn’t in jail for this. As a matter of fact he broke a lot of laws in that auto bailout fiasco and was blatantly discriminatory from the bond holders, non union pensions, and Republican auto dealerships. He also broke bankruptcy law.

    I guess rules are truly for the little people.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Laurel, I feel the same way. But asking Boehner and Cantor and McConnell to grow a spine and DO SOMETHING about this monster in the White House is like asking a fat baby not to fart.

      Let’s boot Barry out and then maybe we can convict him for his MANY crimes. Maybe…

      • librtifirst

        The power structure in D.C. committed a lot of crimes right along with Zero. They never take their own, because they would go down with him. There were probably a lot more people involved in fast and furious than we will ever know about.

        • Sober_Thinking

          Yeah, sadly, you are probably right.

    I wish some of these tough ads would run where I live. I keep seeing only Obama’s stupid ad that lies about Romney’s taxes, by using ambiguity over percentages versus total payments, claiming “he paid less than you.” What a sleaze we have in the White House.

    Clinton was a sexual predator while holding office, and that was bad. But mostly only bad for his family and his victims. Obama’s sleaziness extends throughout the entire scope of government. He needs to be broomed aside.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Had obama done as much for non-union employees and businesses, things wouldn’t be as economically bad as they are now. But he protected his union cronies/buddies and left everyone else out to dry. I hope those non-union types that voted for that loser in 2008 will remember what he’s done to their lives come November and vote for Romney/Ryan. How could they not vote for Romney/Ryan?

  • Sober_Thinking

    Get Obama out first, then we’ll take care of the accursed unions. There days are numbered.

    I appreciate Mark Mix and to a certain degree, Rand Paul for taking up the union challenge.

  • hbnolikeee

    I hope Mitt asks Duh Bumbler that question to his face. Watch him dance (is that a code word?) around it.

  • smmy33

    This is an amazing ad …. I hope they have enough money to ad buy in Ohio and other rust belt states.

  • kong1967

    I love it!! Posed as a question rather than an accusation. We all know the answer…..because the unions stuff the Democrat party’s coffers with tons of money. If this isn’t a payoff I don’t know what is.

    This action blatantly says “if you support Obama you will get rewarded and if you don’t you will be punished”. I’d be willing to bet that most Americans don’t even know about this bullcrap.

    The union people don’t understand that they’ll just be going to the camps last.

    Cronyism is a symptom of Statism. The cure is to dismantle the big-gov nest of thieves in DC and return power to the States and the People.

  • jdbaird

    I don’t know if they allow links to be posted on here, but I found a place that if you’re a union member and you don’t want your money going to left wing politics they help you to get a refund of that portion of your dues. unionrefund.org I’m trying to get a bunch of guys at my work to do it along with me so as to avoid the expected retaliation. Any way to weaken the corrupt unions and the corrupt democrat party.

    Unions are a bi-product of liberal progressive socialism brought here to the United States from the Union Of Socialist Russian Republic (USSR). And how did that work out for the Soviet Union…..lasted only 70yrs.
    And our Constitutional Representative Republic, and our economic free enterprise system has lasted for 236yrs and counting….
