The Democrats are guilty of hypocrisy as well as a 'do as I say, not as I do' mentality. The wish to deny unions a secret ballot, yet they voted in secrecy over Lieberman. What gives?
Obama wants Lieberman because he needs the votes for his 'ambitious' (some called it socialist) programs.....errr, agenda.
Speaking of unions and thugs, Democrats are dying to give the automakers a huge piece of the bailout pie. Why? It is simple, they are joined at the hip with the unions. If GM or Ford or Chrysler declare bankruptcy (the Chapter 11 reorganization type), they can renegotiate their contracts and hopefully, kick the UAW to the curb. They driven the Big 3 into the toilet.
