I like that Obama ran ads saying he didn't take a dime from lobbyists during his campaign so there would be no "special interests" to serve should he be elected. He did take money from unions though and in less then 2 weeks he is ready to bring bakc the unions in full force. Tell me another policitcian that within 2 weeks was already serving the "special interests" that got them elected. Influence is influence no matter where it comes from.

What will not "Change" is the fleeing of jobs to other countries because labor is to high here as is Workers Comp. and general insurance to do business. The Chinese love it.

As though there is bushel baskets of money lying around in industry, ready to lift the middle class. The customer will just shop someplace cheaper. These boobs have obviously never run a business

It doesn't look like they know much about running a country either.

Lift the middle class? That is the problem, they are the ones buying cheap chinese junk. Then they complain when their jobs go with it. Oh thats right, they need to get a "living wage" to afford the american built stuff. But then the cost of the american stuff goes up to pay a living wage! I guess we just need to nationalize all industry to make it non-profit to pay those middle class people. SOCIALISM

Wait a minute, he is telling the truth! Unions are not "special interests", they are just an arm of the Democrat party! So its more like just working within the party :lol: :mad:
