    Wisconsin Senate leader admits union-busting bill is about defeating Obama | The Raw Story


    State Sen. Scott Fitzgerald (R), the Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader, must have forgotten his talking points while appearing on Megyn Kelly's Fox News show. This afternoon he admitted on-air what many liberals have long-suspected: rescinding collective bargaining rights from state workers is Wisconsin is as much about the 2012 presidential election as Wisconsin's 2011 budget shortage.

    As first reported by ThinkProgress, Fitzgerald told Kelly: "If we win this battle, and the money is not there under the auspices of the unions, certainly what you’re going to find is President Obama is going to have a much difficult, much more difficult time getting elected and winning the state of Wisconsin."

    Watch Fitzgerald in the video below, as first seen on Fox News on March 9, 2011:

    You have to admit, the way the right wing leadership use their base is "masterful".

    They had to pass it so they could see what was in it.

    So he said that if the unions don't donate as much money to the Dems then the Dems won't have as much money to spend.

    Wow! The devious, sneaky plan leaks out.

    This must be a very sore and RAW story.

    Busting the Obama backed Unions is about saving US taxpayers with some blood left in us.

    And beating the Obama is a second BIG ONE.

    and you want us to do what, exactly? Cry for them? I don't think so. The democrats and unions have played dirty for years, and I think, it's time to get even, instead of just getting mad. So this may hurt the democrats in 2912? EXCELLENT! No wonder the left is squealing like a stuck pig; liberals never like having their own tactics used against them. TOUGH!
