    Horsehockey Thread.

    No coercion has taken place and it is no different than Obama telling people that if they vote in the GOP they are on their own.

    Can you ever stop bleating ?

    So telling someone what you believe is in their best interest work wise is now threatening them? Coercing them? The one that needs to check what they are smoking is you.

    Using your logic the simple act of the President announcing he is best for the Country is intimidating Government employees.

    There is NO REASON for any boss or business owner to be "making it clear" to their employees how they should vote. None. It shouldn't be a cause for discussion, ever.

    How can he NOT know that.

    He told them to make it clear what is in their best interest job wise. No different then making an add or a statement in an add.

    He did not tell them to tell anyone how to vote. Again using your logic the President can not state EVER under any circumstance that he is best for the Country in any form that involves the use of work economy or job conditions, because then, using your logic, he is threatening or coercing Federal employees.

    He probably could have worded it better. But I doubt he was trying to tell employers to threaten their employees. Sounds like he wanted employers to tell their employees that a vote for Romney means better job security. He just worded it really shity.

    No. Still. Wrong.

    Employers are not supposed to do that.

    Our votes determine our future. If I were an employer, I would be honest with my employees about how Obama's policies are going to have a negative effect and could threaten their job security.

    The radical policies being created by EPA and Obamacare are job killers. People need to know that.
