Obama goofs, compares striking workers to terrorists

Speaking to construction workers in Rockville, MD today, he said:

Everybody here just does their job, right? You don’t – uh uh – If you’re working here, and in the middle of the day you just stopped and said “You know what, I wanna get something, but I don’t know exactly what I’m gonna get, but I’m just gonna stop working until I get – I’m gonna shut down the whole plant until I get something” – You get fired, right? Because, the deal is, you’ve already gotten hired, you’ve got a job, you’re getting a paycheck, and so you also are getting the pride of doing a good job and contributing to a business and looking out for your fellow workers. That’s what you’re getting.

Perhaps without realizing it, President Obama just perfectly described workers who ‘walkout’ or go on strike – and why they should be fired.

But there’s more. Obama made his surprising slam on workers who strike in an attempt to compare them to the congressional GOP who, as we know, are failing (so to speak) to give King Obama his full budget demands.

Top Obama administration figures compare the GOP to terrorists (for example, Dan Pfeiffer the other day). So do other top Democrats (for example, Harry Reid calling them ‘anarchists’, or Al Gore who accused Obamcare foes of ‘political terrorism’).

If the GOP are behaving just like striking workers, according to Obama, and if the GOP are (in the very same behavior) also terrorists, then…striking workers are kind of like terrorists, aren’t they? “Thanks, Obama!”

UPDATE: Peter Schiff has another quote on the Left’s demonizing of conservatives as terrorists, this one from talk host Stephanie Miller on the GOP being “suicide bombers” who are “trying to blow your children up”.

This is the Left, in 2013. If you happen to truly want fiscal responsibility, an end to the endless debt ceiling increases, or avoidance of the train wreck that even Big Labor knows Obamacare to be: you get name-calling. Probably because that’s all the Left has left.



  1. Say what you will, the man is a comic genius and one hell of a gun salesman.

  2. You know this is going to go just like the “You didn’t build that!” comment. People are going to be all over the media explaining what he REALLY said, and the slack-jawed sheep who voted this worthless POS back in are going to nod and bleat in agreement, despite the fact that he just told them all very plainly that the right to strike no longer exists in his eyes.

    It’s either that, or this is the moment he’s finally put his foot so far down his throat that he chokes on it.

  3. Why, oh why, can people NOT see what a complete fraud and douche bag this guy is???

  4. Oh if only we had an honest media-or even honest comedians (honest comedians would have a field day with this gaffe-of course we don’t.

    Obama is apparently against strikes but he is definitely for forcing you to pay union dues.

  5. Sorry, Fan. Anyone who thinks 0 is a fraud is an obvious racist.

    Any misspeak is merely because he is so very tired. And who wouldn’t be tired, what with all the GOP terrorists suddenly resisting his demands?!!

    But is he really a fraud? He promised to fundamentally transform America and I think he’s doing a very good job of it. Are we respected and/or feared by the rest of the world? No. Do we strive to succeed? Only if we’re fools. We are no more exceptional than anyone else in the world. I think he’s done it!
