Why, really, are the Unions Mad?

Or… Why is everyone missing it?

This week the news has been how Union Leaders are upset about the debacle that is Obamacare.

Organized Labor’s James Hoffa, Joseph Hansen and Donald Taylor sent Democrat Leaders Reid and Pelosi a Nasty Gram.

Full Letter here.

So, after the small smile I return to my senses and wonder why.

Reading the entire missive it becomes clear it has nothing to do with any of the stated reasons.  The only impact the letter was intended to convey was the old “we’ll go public if we have to” warning.

What’s really at the crux of this little feud between Dwindling Labor and The White House?  It’s the delay of the Employer Mandate.  (And now possibly the Individual Mandate.)

All of the language about caring that we are all going to get crappy health care at exorbitant costs is hogwash and meant strictly for public consumption.

The Unions are angry because they were promised, and were counting on, the Employer Mandate resulting in the “kicking off” of millions of individuals from their current health insurance plans.  Which… would then leave the super caring folks at Atrophied Labor to ride in to the rescue with a very powerful recruiting tool… Health Insurance!  And, not just any health insurance… the Good Stuff.

But How you ask?  Well… don’t forget, they have received waivers.  As usual, The Unions are not required to follow the rules.

But, they’ve been Commie Blocked.  The Leftist Powers that Be have decided the preservation of the Crown Jewel of Socialism is far too important to allow it to implode of its own weight.

So the Mob of Three are pissed because they have prepped for a massive recruiting effort which now must be shelved until after the election.  They are pissed because their membership roles are shrinking along with their membership dues.  They are pissed that they had to write the Letter in the first place in order to, or at least attempt to, keep their positioning as caring for the membership, and buy some time.  They are pissed because they know they’ve been had and that they Must support Democrats, full force, to make sure they will be able to collect on the promise Obama made them.  They are pissed because they’ve been played by the Administration.

Hilariously, the Union Bosses have been beaten at their own game.

Don’t think for one second this matters.  Even the White House knows they will do nothing but be obedient servants for the Democrats come the 2014 elections, because if they’re not… they’ll get nothing.

This is reinforced by the Silence from the White House regarding the Letter.

Some people like Football and some like Baseball.  Personally I prefer watching Socialists fight with each other.

If nothing else, It makes me happy… even if it has the impact of an All-star Game.

I’m going to go grab a beer and keep watching.


This is not about President Barack Obama.

All of this is about President Hillary Clinton.

While all of the scandals are a game changer…

Don’t fool yourself. The Press is not going to suddenly stop being Socialist and embrace an ideology of Free-Markets, Liberty, Freedom and Personal Responsibility.

What is going on here is the Hillary 2016 Campaign getting a head start.

The way the Press looks at it is, if Obama falls out of favor in the eyes of the American people then all the better. This allows Hillary to run in contrast. It allows her to be the “Good” Liberal… the only one who can truly bring “Change” to government.

Nobody… nobody… nobody is going to Impeach Barack Obama.  It will not happen.  Ever.

What is going to happen now, however, is the Hillary protection effort.

That’s it.

Obama is being cast, intentionally, as “disengaged” and “uninterested”.  These are not criminal actions.  While he is “responsible”, he is not culpable… he’s just tired, and finished trying to bring change to terrible, terrible Washington.

This will be the limit of protection the Press will afford Obama. They know he is done. They know he has entered his lame duck status and there is no juice left to push his agenda Forward.

The only person the Press cares to shelter now is Hillary.

Damage control in underway.  The Media knows they have lost the Mid-Term Elections at this point.  2014 is over.  They just need to get through the next number of months without any provable Progressive criminality presenting itself and the preservation of the Socialist gains they have made over the last 6 years.

Let’s watch… shall we?
