Obama Unions Quid Pro Quo United Against Republicans

UPDATE: I wish I could post the response to AFSCME's attack ads put together by Rep. Cantor's staff, but it is too vulgar. Made to sound like a Jersey union goon, it is funny and makes fun of the self righteous attitude of the unions.

Update: Brad Woodhouse, the head of Americans United for Change, which is also funding the initial ad hitting the GOP leadership, sends over a statement demanding that Cantor apologize.
"This is a childish and disgusting response to one of the most serious crises facing America in our lifetimes. This spoof of AFSCME has been floating around on YouTube for years — but its use in this context shows how completely and utterly out of touch with the current economic crisis and the lives of Americans Eric Cantor and the GOP leadership really is. Cantor should apologize."

Unfortunately Rep. Cantor has already apologized for the parody. Personally, I would start pumping them out, minus the vulgarities, as fast as I could. The unions, Democrats and all their internet thugs deserve all the ridicule hurled at them. That they act with such righteous indignation only makes this funnier.

Oh my. Unions spent millions to elect Obama to get in return support to buy Card Check legislation to enlarge unions and now that Obama is promising the unions millions back in repayment the unions can go after Republicans. That is what Obama and the unions colluded on from the beginning of his candidacy.

Obama allies attack GOP leadership
The labor-backed, pro-stimulus group Americans United for Change and the public workers' union AFSCME are going up with a national cable spot, also airing in Washington D.C., with the sharpest attack yet on Republican leaders in the House and Senate.
The radio spot targets Senators Voinovich of Ohio, Ensign of Nevada ,and Murkowski of Alaska and Reps. Shelley Moore Capito (WV). Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO), Jo Ann Emerson (MO), Jim Gerlach (PA), Charlie Dent (PA), Fred Upton (MI), Todd Platts (PA), Mike Castle (DE), Candice Miller (MI), Michael Turner (OH), Steve LaTourette (OH), Patrick Tiberi (OH), Eric Cantor (VA), Dave Reichert (WA), Bill Cassidy (LA), John Fleming (LA), Brett Guthrie KY), and Jim Cooper (TN).

Collusion between unions, special interest groups and the Democratic Party has never been more apparent and never more unAmerican.
