Wisconsin Fall-out: Poll Shows Union Members
Wisconsin Fall-out: Poll Shows Union Members Deserting Obama
Refusing to risk even a couple of bad news cycles (which he ended up having anyway for other reasons), President Obama refused to enter the fray in Wisconsin and personally rally on behalf of the public sector unions who staked everything on the June 5 recall election targeting Republican governor Scott Walker.
To add insult to injury, when asked why he didn’t go to Wisconsin, the President claimed he was too busy -- which is an absolute falsehood. Obama was on a record fundraising spree the final weekend before the recall vote, and a couple of them took place in states right next door to Wisconsin.
