Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Democrat adviser slams Obama, Dems for being unions’ b1tches

Blue-on-blue action gets me hotter than a blind lesbian at a seafood market.  Excerpts from The Daily Caller:

Longtime Democratic strategist Pat Caddell on Wednesday blasted the Obama White House for creating “a world in which there is no dissent,” following his banishment from Colorado Democrat Andrew Romanoff’s campaign for Senate.

Caddell said he does not fault Romanoff, a former state House speaker, for cutting ties with him after his remarks from November — in which he called the Service Employee Union International (SEIU) “thugs” and said the goal of the environmental movement is to “deconstruct capitalism” — were made public.

Caddell said he is being ostracized for sounding alarms about the problem that public sector unions are posing for the Democratic party. He said he supports industrial unions but that government employee unions such as the SEIU — which is one of the Democratic party’s biggest campaign contributors — violate the raison d’etre of the party, which is to “stand up for ordinary average Americans, not money and special interests.”

“I think the public unions are going to take the country and the Democratic party down the tubes,” Caddell said. “They’re in the business of taking care of — of asking taxpayers, asking ordinary people, to pay for people who make twice as much as they make, with benefit packages they will never see, and they’re told, you may not cut those.”

“How are you going to tell a person who makes $40,000 that they must pay money to make sure that people keep jobs who make $80,000, roughly, and who have defined pensions that they will never see?” Caddell said. “You cannot ask ordinary Americans who have no jobs, whose pensions have been ransacked, and whose pay has been stagnant, to keep rewarding people who don’t face the same kind of conditions and risk.”

Exit question: Can anyone tells me what this guy said that was factually incorrect?  I can’t seem to find it anywhere in the story.

  1. Nope on this particular instance he was dead nut on. Look at Cali for the future of America under socialist/communist/liberal/Democrat legislative branch rule. The governor can come and go but the power to get things done starts in the house and senate.

  2. I can’t blame the unions, industrial or public, they are just doing what they are paid for by representing the interests of their membership. It’s the politician’s job to weigh the those interests of the unions and other interest groups with those of the general welfare.

    Both political parties are guilty of feeding from the money trough provided by the interests. Since you can’t limit the money going to the politicians because it’s free speech, the voters have to be vigilant , and vote out the corrupt who favor the special interests rather than the general welfare.
