Obama Joins Side of the Takers

From Jackie Calmes at the New York Times: “Wisconsin Puts Obama Between Competing Desires.” What are the “competing desires”? Before I tell you what the New York Times consists or says the competing desires are, I’ll tell you. The competing desires Obama faces are the desire to be a socialist, but not look like one.

That’s the “competing desire.” To be a socialist but not look like one at the same time. “The battle in Wisconsin over public employee unions has left President Obama facing a tricky balance between showing solidarity with longtime political supporters” i.e., the unions “and projecting a message in favor of deep spending cuts to reduce the debt.” Sorry, you’re losing it, Mr. President. You are siding with the budget busters, budget busters who don’t produce anything. The dirty little secret now is up. It’s a transfer of wealth is all that’s gone on here. Union wealth is nothing more than a transfer of wealth from producers to government employees. Not one thing’s produced, not one thing is made.
