    Obama - Protecting Union Bosses

    This last debate was the only one I watched. If you listened you heard the following exchange regarding Free Trade:

    Senator McCain:

    And also the country that just freed three Americans that will help us create jobs in America because they will be a market for our goods and products without having to pay -- without us having to pay the billions of dollars -- the billion dollars and more that we've already paid.

    Free trade with Colombia is something that's a no-brainer. But maybe you ought to travel down there and visit them and maybe you could understand it a lot better.

    Barack Obama:

    Let me respond. Actually, I understand it pretty well. The history in Colombia right now is that
    labor leaders have been targeted for assassination on a fairly consistent basis and there have not been prosecutions.

    And what I have said, because the free trade -- the trade agreement itself does have labor and environmental protections, but we have to stand for human rights and we have to make sure that violence isn't being perpetrated against workers who are just trying to organize for their rights...

    What Barack Obama is saying is if union leaders and union workers are put on one side of a scale and America is put on the other side of the scale he will side with the union. You heard it with your own ears and if you want to read the transcript of the entire debate then do so here.

    I've been warning of this union loving, union puppet for months and finally he lays his policy of union preference over America's interest right on national TV.

    Barack Obama chooses to protect union bosses and union workers over American jobs.

    Barack Obama claims unions are a global "human right" - over the interests of America.

    Barack Obama chooses to protect union bosses and union workers in other countries over America's economy.
