Labor Boss Hoffa: "President Obama, this is your army... Let's take these son of bitches out."

Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa Jr. had some illuminating words that explicitly encouraged violent class war when he was warming up the heavily union crowd in Detroit for President Obama:

"We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war."

"President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong."

Given the pattern of union violence and intimidation , especially over the last two years or so, this is not mere rhetoric, especially coming from the likes of Hoffa.

President Obama followed Hoffa and did not disavow any of the violent language coming from him or from AFL-CIO head and self-proclaimed Marxist Richard Trumka. Instead, he praised them, just like it said on the teleprompters. In fact, the president's remarks, aside from being notably ignorant of reality were designed to further inflame mob passions and gave a pretty good clue as to the vile and divisive campaign he intends running.

The president once again showed that he is going to run away from his own abysmal record by blaming it on Congress, even though he had a super majority in both houses for the first two year of his term. He quoted an old Harry Truman speech from 1948 that condemned the Congress of that time as anti-Labor and said that when working men and women have decent wages, it helps the economy.

Truman was undoubtedly right in that sentiment...but what President Obama didn't say and likely is clueless about is that punitive taxes and over regulation on the companies that create those jobs means people don't get hired, period. The president would never admit that the economic policies and the massive debt he and his Democrat enablers have created are responsible for crippling the American economy. That's what has weakened our currency, raised prices on food and energy for working families and led to the high unemployment we have today.

Nor would he dare to mention how the Obama Administration's support for admitting illegal aliens to the United States and his using executive orders to apply the DREAM Act rejected by Congress three times has contributed to joblessness by the very Union members dutifully chanting 'four more years."

This is by no means an isolated attack. Here's Joe Biden, addressing a union crowd in Cincinnati and using the same kind of rhetoric:

Not only is the opposition to Obama 'sons of bitches', we're 'barbarians' as well.

A real leader would seek to bring his people together. President Obama is taking exactly the opposite course using simple minded rhetoric designed to gin up a mob.

This is exactly the sort of campaign President Obama intends to run. Shamelessly.

please helps me write more gooder!
