President Obama claims to be many things; a uniter, not a divider, a person of character, and someone who just wants to solve problems. Today, he proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is none of these things. And here’s why. Speaking on the same stage prior to the President was Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa who proudly declared the Tea Party public enemy number one and stated, “President Obama, this is your army, we are ready to march…But everybody here’s got to vote. If we go back, and keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these sons of bitches out.”
The President while speaking on the stage later stated that he was “proud” of Mr. Hoffa. Mr. President shame on you! You lecture us on civility and then stand on a stage with someone that openly curses a political opponent in a manner that could be perceived as a threat.
Education is one of the last places that unions have any kind of stronghold. It’s up to conservative teachers to spread the word. The unions are doing little to nothing to benefit students and the profession as a whole. The unions are propping up politicians like our President that are doing nothing to improve this country. There’s no economic certainty because of his big government attack on the private sector. As a result there’s no jobs and will continue to not be. It’s time to stand firm and with courage. Public sector unions are one of the largest problems in America. Silence and keeping your head down is no longer an option.
