Obama’s Union Puppet: Voters ‘Duped’ Into Backing GOP

Posted by on Nov 05, 2014 at 1:00 pm

They really do think the American people are stupid and they have nothing but contempt for them when they get their ass kicked at the polls.

The head of the nation’s largest labor group argued Wednesday that voters were “duped” into supporting GOP candidates in the midterm elections.

Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, said that voters headed to the polls with major concerns about their economic health. Republicans delivered a strong economic message, he said, and Democrats didn’t.

So the GOP delivered a strong economic message, but voters were duped? Um, OK.

While Republicans posted strong electoral gains across the board, Trumka argued that polling shows that that did not necessarily mean that voters wanted a GOP agenda.

That may well be true. What they wanted was Obama and his merry band of idiots stopped in their tracks. But hey, live in denial, fatboy:

And polling done by the AFL-CIO in Senate battleground states found that voters may have selected Republicans, but most still favored left-leaning policies. Their poll found strong majority support for policies like increasing taxes on the wealthy, boosting Social Security benefits, and hiking the minimum wage.

“They may have been duped into voting for people who won’t give them that,” he said.

Just keep believing, Dick.

    Actually Mr. Fatbody, the democrats have duped themselves into thinking they are mightier than they actually are via the “feed the choir” mainstream media. Its about time you lost some weight anyways.

    Other historical events come to mind to compare last night to:
    being Japanese at the Battle of Leyte Gulf, being French at Waterloo, being mooselimb at the Battle of Tours, being English at the Battle of Stirling, being Federal Calvary at Custers Last Stand,
    being Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg, being Saddam Hussien in Gulf War II, being German at Tobruk, being Roman during the Visigoth invasion, being South Vietnamese in ’75, being Spanish navy in 1588, being ‘one’ of the “Brave 600”, being wounded at Hiroshima by the first bomb and transferred to Nagasaki for medical treatment just in time for the 2nd one……all of those combined must be close to what feels like being a democrat after the ’14 Midterms.

    What Trumka really wanted to say to voters: “If you vote for a candidate we oppose, we have the right to shoot you dead in the street.”
