In Bizarro World Crossroads GPS Complains About Union Funding

Does anyone else find it ironic that a heavily financed Republican PAC like Crossroads GPS is running an ad attacking the comparatively weak fund raising power of Unions in the U.S.?

An arm of American Crossroads, the well-financed Republican super PAC, is going up on the air Wednesday with an ad taking aim at public employee unions and highlighting the aid President Obama got in his campaign from organized labor.

“Why are Democrats shutting down state capitals?” asks a narrator with images of the protesters in Madison, Wis., on the screen. “To protect a system that pays unionized government workers 42 percent more than non-union workers, a system that collects hundreds of millions in mandatory dues to back liberals who support government unions.”

Here is a better question Mr. Rove, “Why is American Crossroads running a national ad attacking Unions? To attempt to castrate the only meagerly funded Democratic competition they have in a post Citizens United electoral landscape.”

    How long do you think people will stand for your bullshit.They have had enough of getting screwed over by corps.,big oil, bankers, and wall street.You created the recession and now want us to pay the price. Fuck you, you make me sick to my stomach.Take away oil subsidies.Take away tax breaks from the wealthy and get greed down and budgeting the budget would be real

    • Whose bull@#$t are you talking about Mark? Crossroads GPS IS funded by big oil (big corporations). If you honestly think that a group founded by Karl Rove and funded by the largest corporations in America is looking out for you then I am not sure what world you are living in. These attacks on Unions are attacks on working people, plain and simple. If my opposition to that makes you sick then can offer you some Pepto?

      If your F@#$ Y%^ was directed at Crossroads GPS, the GOP and the corporate/wallstreet cabal that got us into this mess and not me as it seems to have read then I misunderstood and say “ditto.”

    It is sad that people are convinced by advertising and talking points without any effort to find out if what they’re told is true. Maybe, if people were paid what they were worth, not JUST by the government, but by private sector employers the deficit might not be so large. If the tax breaks for the wealthiest (that don’t give a sh*t about you, Mark) were taken away. If tax incentives to move business overseas were taken away and Americans (yes its our america too, Mark) were put to work, maybe the deficit wouldn’t be that large. Maybe if instead of pointing a finger at an organization that began because of horrible working conditions and pay (look up why Unions were started, Mark) you put an effort to make sure every American were worthy of a decent paycheck and decent benefits for a job well done.
