  • Obama's Priorities

    From CBS News’ 60 Minutes interview with Commander, U.S. Forces Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal:

    Asked how often he talks to the president, McChrystal said, “I’ve talked to the president since I’ve been here once on a VTC.”

    “You talked to him once in 70 days?” Martin asked.

    “That’s correct,” McChrystal replied.

    From the Los Angeles Times profile of Service Employee International President Andy Stern

    Moreover, Stern has enjoyed considerable entree to the new administration — starting on Inauguration Day, when he joined Obama and the new president’s family on the reviewing stand outside the White House to watch the inaugural parade.

    Stern estimates he visits the White House once a week.

      Doesn't SEIU have close ties with ACORN and the Apollo Project? Oh, that's right – SEIU was the major campaign contributor for Obama.

      It will be interesting to see WHO government "bids" go to in the coming months and years.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
