Does this surprise anybody?

  • I could have sworn I read about Andy Stern and his frequent visits to the White House last year...did it just get uncovered again? Or is this related to NEW allegations?

  • No, not surprised. O is a politician. Never bought into the 'hope and change' rhetoric anyhow.

  • Not a bit. Dnnt expect to many supporters to answer though. If they ignore then it isn't true.

  • No, Obama has been in Chicago for a long time, remember. He has an agenda and will do what it takes to make it happen.

  • I heard about his many visits last year. There is a speech of O. from before he was elected, where he boastfully says "I talked to Andy Stern of SEIU, yada, yada, ... I do believe that Andy Stern has had a lot of say-so in our country's demise, he is a progressive who has benefitted greatly from capitalism, they all have! It's interesting that all the "elitists" are dead set against the rest of us having the same opportunities...

  • Gee Sweets ... here I am ... lol.

    I'm a wee bit confused though ~ you want to hang a cop who hasn't been investigated yet, but you want a free pass for someone who HAS/IS ~ and who has quite a shady past.

    I'll wait for the investigation, but I can tell you straight up that if the cop lied I'll be truly disappointed ... and I'll be truly surprised if there isn't quite a bit of Stern's doings and finances that won't bear close scrutiny.
