A Lazy Labor Day with Obama



President Barack Obama said in a Labor Day union rally in Boston that “Republicans who stand in the way of helping workers have been wrecking the economy for a long, long time.”


Has Obama forgotten that he is the President and that our buck stops with him? Somehow I don’t think that the Republicans put the economy eighteen trillion dollars in debt or forced ninety-two million people to drop out of the labor force.  That was Obama’s work.  He is the promise that doesn’t deliver;  the failure that he masks with burqas of lies.


He always complains about insults against Democrats but all he does is go after Republicans saying, “…their rhetoric is all talk and no action.”


He is an attack dog.  He is reminiscent of liar Hillary Clinton complaining about the Right Wing Conspiracy interfering with her husband’s tryst in the Oval Office with Monica Lewinsky.


Obama has always cashed in on the union vote. Unions have been major supporters of his campaigns. I don’t know why he is sucking up  for more union love when he is a lame duck.  He obviously can’t run again or chew gum while quacking.


Obama  wants to get the love of the working class even though he golfs in Martha’s Vineyard and lives like a billionaire.  He is actually a multi-millionaire.


Obama thinks that because he is half black that he can pass for the middle class.  But not all blacks are middle class.  What about Bill Cosby, the comic sex machine?


Obama can no longer hide behind his skin color to appear to be one of the homeboys. He can no longer turn an historical handicap into a cultural positive.


Obama is in Boston “signing an executive order … requiring paid sick leave for employees of federal contractors, including 300,000 who currently receive none.”


Pretending that he is the great humanitarian Obama moans that, “Right now you have parents who have to choose between losing income or staying home with a sick child.” Like Obama really cares beyond using people’s misfortunes as political ploys.

Hey, Obama, you can’t executive-order life.  There are families who have children with diseases and they have to be ministered to by their parents not by a bureaucratic clerk. You can’t ameliorate their problems by taxing money from other people. You are not God.  Not even Allah.


I don’t even believe in sick leave unless it’s catastrophic.  You get what you  earn and that shouldn’t be enhanced by the guilt of Big Brother.  I believe in tough love not tender failure.


I certainly don’t believe in sick leave for staying home with a new or adopted child.  Next the President will insist on sick leave for staying home with distempered dogs.


Obama tells his usual lies that “any costs would be offset by savings that contractors would see as a result of lower attrition rates and increased worker loyalty.”


What does he know about worker loyalty?  He never even worked in a large corporation.  He has merely operated as a community  organizer and a spoiled bureaucrat.


I don’t know why Obama and Hillary hate each other.  They both excel at lying.  They have a lot in common.


Once again Obama’s sucking up to the Middle Class while he does nothing for them but weaken their moral fiber and their dedication to work.


Anyhow what does Obama know about Labor Day.  He spends most of his time golfing.  Remember the day Foley was decapitated and Obama ran off to the next tee?  Priorities, priorities….
