Thanks to the voters of Wisconsin for sapping the motivation of these “Recall Snyder” people here in Michigan. Watching them beg for signatures from innocent commuters at expressway park & rides was a sad sight, and now it’s over: A Michigan group is abandoning its effort to recall Republican Gov. Rick Snyder after Tuesday’s failure […]

When Barack Obama was campaigning for president he promised the unions that wherever their rights to collective bargaining were being threatened, he’d be there marching with them: Obama would insist he wasn’t a no-show, as evidenced by a tepid Tweet of support for Barrett — but that’s not exactly “walking the picket line” with the […]

Scroll down for updates… The big story today is of course the Wisconsin recall election, so we’ll use this space to keep up with things as the day goes on. Tonight I’ll post a link to the returns as they come in. There will be national implications to today’s election, no matter what the outcome […]

A couple of days ago I wrote that the Obama campaign was considering moving the final night of the Dem convention to Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers. The large outdoor venue would allow the fighters against Wall Street greed to sell high-priced skyboxes and raise even more campaign cash, and do […]

Nancy Pelosi’s really been gettin’ her Marxist on lately. First, a little background on the situation from about six months ago: In what may be the strongest signal yet of the new pro-labor orientation of the National Labor Relations Board under President Obama, the agency filed a complaint Wednesday seeking to force Boeing to bring […]

Barack Obama’s Twitter account recently put this out: If you follow the link, this is what you’ll find Obama hawking: It’s a Kool Aid cozy for The One’s ever-dwindling number of followers. I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud of an administration. Jammie Wearing Fool points out that the “Workers United” at the bottom […]

The “People’s Convention” will take place next summer, and thanks to the power of the gods of hypocrisy it’ll be held in a “right to work” state (such things happen when pro-union politicians discover how expensive union labor is and they can’t force somebody else pay for it). The logo is set: Gateway Pundit thinks […]

I had to laugh when I heard one of the morning news show talking heads wondering aloud if President Obama would denounce what Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said yesterday. Sure, and maybe Michael Moore will speak out against Twinkies today. The guy who instructed his allies to “get in their face” is going to […]

Maxine Waters is a living, breathing example of the definition of insanity, not to mention stupidity. The first time the government spent nearly a trillion dollars nothing happened except the unemployment rate went up, the deficit ballooned, the general economy worsened and the pockets of Big Labor were lined. Hey, let’s do that again! ***** […]

Wisconsin is finally getting to a point where the state’s economy is in good shape and they’re responsibly digging their way out of debt — which of course means the left is pissed off. The recall elections are upon us: The latest chapter in Wisconsin’s turbulent politics is set to be written Tuesday as the […]
