Though we did not realize there was such a think as a “Hollywood Republican,” apparently there is at least one and he happened to write a great post about President Obama’s unilateral appointment last weekend of SEIU strong-man Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board in which he closes with this:
I don’t think I’m disturbed as much about Craig Becker as I am about Obama. Becker is a hired gun paid to represent very powerful union bosses. I understand that he believes he should do whatever it takes to push his agenda on behalf of his clients, just as any lawyer would. No, I’m much more concerned about Obama. The American people did not elect a President to exclusively represent union interests. They did not elect Obama to create a fourth branch of government called SEIU. It’s been two months since the State of the Union address in which Obama proclaimed “that’s why we’ve excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs”. Does Obama really think that the American people have a memory of less than 8 weeks? Unbelievable.
