Obama, an SEIU front group? Workers of the World, Unite!

OBAMA: Before debating health care, I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members.


He doesn't address your concerns or my concerns. No, he consults with Andy Stern at least 22 times.

Stern represents 2.2 million people. There are 3 million who watch this show. Could you imagine if the president of the United States said the person he talks to most on the issues of the economy and national defense is "Glenn Beck of Fox News" and I was the most frequent visitor of the White House? No one would stand for it.

The president shouldn't be talking to anyone who leads a group who leads 1 million, 2 million or 10 million. He's here to lead the entire group. You know, justice for all.

The reason continue to push for this when you are saying no is because you aren't the ones they are listening to. Unless you are wearing a purple shirt.

I said this well over a year ago, maybe two, that the unions desperately need government health care because they are in trouble. They've promised too much: Huge benefit packages and massive retirement pensions have unions scrambling to unload the burden. And guess who is the lucky recipient of that burden under Obama's plan?


How could he do that? It doesn't make sense. But remember, his "life work" is not about you:


OBAMA: I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU. I'm not a newcomer to this.


All his life he's been doing the SEIU's work. Work for those 2.2 million people. So we know the president has a lot in common with Andy Stern. Let's see if you do: What are his goals?


ANDY STERN, PRESIDENT OF SEIU: Workers of the world unite, it's not just a slogan anymore it's a way we're going to have to do our work.


Workers of the world unite. Hmm, where have I heard that before? Oh yes: That's the communist slogan. Good thing there hasn't been a recent rash of communist radicals running around in the White House. Because then I'd really be concerned. Let's for a moment give old Andy the benefit of the doubt, that he just went to the Anita Dunn school of comedy, what else does he believe?


STERN: The question is how is everyone going to share in the wealth? And I think that after we get through this health care situation and finally solve this problem of 223 years, you know, we are going to see a change in our labor laws.


A 223 year mistake? First of all, it's 233 years. Which would be... America? Twenty-two visits. My work is their work. Let's paint the country purple. Purple? Why not red, white and blue? I'll show you why: SEIU just made a movie. The topic? How the SEIU got Obama elected. Here's the trailer:


OBAMA: Ordinary people can do extraordinary things so long as they are organized, so long as the are mobilized, so long as they are unionized.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I would like to introduce to you the next president of the United States, Barack Obama.

OBAMA: Thank you, Cleveland.


Give it up for SEIU.
