In yet another "back room" deal, President Barack Obama has brought 15 new appointees into his Administration that even he couldn't get approved by his Democratic henchmen (and woman) in Congress.
By using the Presidential privilege of simply appointing people when Congress is off on vacation, Obama has once again proven his arrogance and distain for the American people and our nation as a whole. After all, this is the Obama way.
Craig Becker is the most controversial of the new appointments. He will join the National Labor Relations Board to mediate disputes between Labor and Business. All 41 Republican Senators had asked President Obama NOT to try to seat Becker in the position because he had been a top lawyer of SEIU and the AFL-CIO, he was too "pro Labor" and would be too biased, but Obama did it anyway. The severe danger in placing such a person in such a powerful position is that he can orchestrate a negotiation that intentionally leads to a deadlock (impossible demands by the Unions and Big Labor), and then step in with the full authority of the government and issue his own judgement for an outcome.
Understand this. Labor could literally ask for 100% of a business' profits in a negotiation. A more reasonable arbitrator would immediately declare that to be irrational and refuse to even accept that as a meaningful offer in good faith but Becker perhaps would not take that step.
The company refuses the demand and then the Union refuses to discuss anything else. There is the "deadlock". Becker steps in and Orders the company to turn over 99% of the company profits and declares that to be a "negotiated settlement". How would you like to be the business owner?
President Barack Obama is as out of control as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and this is just the FIRST WEEK of him flexing his muscles after the Healthcare vote!!! God help us with nine more months before any change can happen in Congress. Where are the Woodward and Bersteins of today so IMPEACHMENT can get started???
