When Obama stopped in at Master Lock in Milwaukee, Wisconsin last week, he was walking the plant and stopped to talk with a plant employee and looked up at the banner hanging on the wall and said to the worker and people around him, “It is great to be in a union shop, especially one as old as this union is.” Pointing to the banner he then said, “A Union shop since 1848.” He went on to talk on what that banner stood for and how important it was to display it and show your union support.
The worker told Obama that it was the flag of the State of Wisconsin which was founded in 1848, and that the shop was non-union.
This was only reported by a local radio station in Milwaukee (1130AM) and not by the major news networks. They didn’t want to embarrass this ‘got no-clue president!’
Since they didn’t do their job of reporting on this presidential visit, the only way for the news to get around is by the Internet.
The White House media said he then skipped Wisconsin went to Chicago, where he’s, of course, well received and knows the Illinois flag from a union one. Illinois, with four of the last seven governors convicted of corruption, and 1,828 political types prosecuted for corruption since 1975. That’s home to Obama.
