The president's political machine worked in close coordination Thursday with state and national union officials to get thousands of protesters to gather in Madison and to plan similar demonstrations in other state capitals. _WashingtonPostAlthough Wisconsin's Governor Walker continues to attempt to save his state from financial armageddon, outside union agitators and political activists continue to be bussed in by community organizers -- some of them based in Washington DC.
The government union crisis in Wisconsin may be the first problem Obama has faced, for which he is truly suited. A small town community, a powerful pro big-government vested interest, and the use of agitators to create quasi-riot conditions -- who but a community organizer of Mr. Obama's stature could pull it off?
The Wisconsin crisis is Obama's true calling, it is why he was elected US President. Everything that is happening elsewhere in the world is irrelevant and merely incidental. What is important, is to seal the power of government unions at all levels of government, for all time -- economic crises notwhithstanding.
It is a time and place for Mr. Obama to shine, to put his best face to the cameras, and unleash the dogs of community rioting in all their junkyard splendor. It is truly a moment for Americans to be proud of their leader.
