    Good catch, Angel. Obama still hasn't explained himself on this...

    He has no real reason to - the mainstream media quickly dropped it and moved on. They have been doing this for Obama going on two years now.

    Obama appears at times to take a very liberal interpretation of the truth...

    They just brought down Circuit City.. wait CC wasnt Union.. they had CEO's that turned millions of profit into loss', made horrible business decisions and eventually bankrupted the company.. More Bonus(Retainment) money for them please!!!

    CAT took care of it's union problems, for the most part, years ago. They moved plants to right to work states in the south and they are almost exclusively non union. My ex wife works for them. I spoke with her a few days ago and she says that she and her fellow workers are just happy when their badge still opens the gate every morning for now.

    Thats a great thing... didnt say Cat was going out of business.. anytime a business fails or needs help, or isnt doing well.. GOP cries Unions..

    This is a cyclical downturn due to the economy.. but soon Ill hear the GOP cry Unions...

    wait for it....
