Obama met with union leaders and MoveOn.org(?) today at the White House.
Evidently, Obama felt it was important to include the radical leftist group at the meeting.

Union leaders gloated today after meeting with President Obama.
Yahoo reported:

Labor union leaders emerged from talks with President Barack Obama on Tuesday vowing a side-by-side battle against Republicans to bring about higher taxes on the wealthy as part of an effort to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.

“It was a very, very positive meeting,” AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told reporters in the White House driveway after the meeting.

“The president, like we are, [is] committed to preserving the tax breaks for the middle class and making sure that rich people pay their fair share. He’s very, very committed to that, we are committed to that,” Trumka continued. “We are very, very committed to making sure that the middle class and workers don’t end up paying the tab for a party that we didn’t get to go to. And the president is committed to that as well.”

The meeting, which included top Obama economic advisers like Gene Sperling and White House chief of staff Jack Lew, came a day before the president was to hold similar talks with CEOs from major companies including American Express, General Electric, Ford Motor and PepsiCo. One participant described Obama as being in “listening mode” and said the president’s final negotiating position would depend in part on what he hears from the executives. The president meets Friday with top Republican and Democratic leaders.

At issue is the best way to handle the looming fiscal cliff—an economically toxic blend of tax hikes, spending cuts and end of long-term unemployment benefits.

Andrew Breitbart may have had the best response to these radical union goons.

  1. Goons.

    We need pics of more goons. Instead of the pic of scandal 4, someone put together a block of those 4 and Hillary, Holder, Obama and Invisible FBI man. No sense in just letting 2 of our military get all the credit.

    Share the picture credit with the real players. Might even add in Panetta and Mueller.

  2. Just another Dog and Pony Show for the perpetually ignorant masses. In the end, Barry will hit the links and no serious action will be taken. This economy is exactly what Barry wants and he is not about to support any ideas which could improve it.

  3. ++

    like you, i, and the rest of the GP regulars
    never heard of that WH scenario before..

    we know they meet on a regular basis, i mean, it’s not like
    they’re attending intelligence briefings you know.. /sarc/

    he’s there, he’s committed, and he damn well should be asap!!


  4. STALIN steps to the microphone………as his red purge spreads throughout our military…> http://youtu.be/IPeRD4P578U

  5. ++

    btw, talk about cognizance, we’re eating their dust..


  6. Do not ALLOW Poop Scoopers this victory. They are loving this so that means Obama is loving this.

    Anytime something hits the Yahoo block on my frontpage, Obama has stamped it to be there.

    Someone PLEASE get new pics and add them to the 4. If you make Obama, Holder, Hillary and the Invisible FBI guy, along with Panetta and Mueller, they will get those pics off faster than a speeding bullet.

    ATTENTION……….This is a direct hit on part of the military that they hate. BE TRAY US, you should have remembered who was on the other side of the table when that ad run.

    The above goons plus Obama & Hillary.

  7. “Listening Mode” = wtf are these guys talking about?

  8. Fat slob Trumka – union crook — liberal loons all. Note who little Jugears looks to for advice and marching orders – the wacky liberals.

    Hillary missing – too busy swilling wine to testify on Benghazi. Jugears will soon be AWOL too as he flees to Burma to avoid questions after hearings. What a gaggle of cowards and buffoons.

  9. Hail, hail, the gangs all here

  10. I’ve been kidding about Trumka being named Secretary of Business! I’m not sure if it may not come true!

  11. These people can’t speak the truth, because their ideology depends on lies and obfuscation.

    Did the MSM ask this group about Hostess, and all the layoffs across the country fbjs week?

    Shh, it’s what Obama wants, so the media is happy to give him lots of cover and highlight this nonsense with a photo opp.

  12. obama wants to kill coal. guess what union trumka was the president of?

  13. Well, meet the new boss – the same one over again. This is going to be bad news.

  14. FYI

    Wealthy Dump Assets Amid Worries About Going Over ‘Cliff’


  15. Obama had a meeting with the people that hate Capitalism, they hate profit, they hate our Constitution, and they hate Western Civilization.

    My Father was a WWII Veteran. When I was young, he once told me, “My fight was with an enemy across the Ocean, your fight will be with an enemy inside our Country”.

  16. Time to get over it and Move on to doing things to push the DC bunch into doing something. Roomney is gone time to forget him and pust your law makers .
