MSNBC's Cenk Uygar Rips Obama On Lack of Support For Wisconsin Union Employees

Rut-Row! - Hell may have frozen over. MSNBC's Cenk Uygar has called President Barack Obama to the carpet over his lack of support for Union Workers in Wisconsin.

Uygar gave the most scathing assessment of Obama's handling of the crisis. Rachel Maddow has also been critical of Obama on this issue, but nothing compared to the visably angry critique Cenk Uygar offered for Obama's complete 180 from campaign promises he made in 2007.

The video clip below highlights just such a campaign promise where then Sen. Obama said the following:

“If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain, when I’m in the White House I’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself. I’ll walk on the picket line with you as President of the United States of America.”

Kudos to Uygar for saying what others in the liberal are too afraid or not allowed to say when it comes to Obama's memory regarding camapaign promises. Remember GITMO anyone. Sure the list of accomplishments is larger, but that doesn't mean that we should casually lose sight of the short comings and failures.
