This doesn't bode well for Obama

Evidently, his campaign workers aren't getting paid what they were promised. (h/t Cathy) Wouldn't it be funny if because of this and Obama's pledge to eliminate secret ballots for unionization elections, Democratic campaign workers unionized and went on strike in 2010 or 2012?

Part of me is enthusiastic about the prospect of Obama breaking his promises made in the campaign--that would generally mean his politics moving towards mine. On the other hand, if he breaks his campaign promises, he's also likely to break the promises he'll make next January. That's not such good news, nor is it good to cheer at any rate at the (further?) descent of a man into gross violations of Exodus 20:16.

Pay up, Barack, and fire the people who reneged on their promises. You cannot afford their "help."

"I want my money today! It's my money. I want it right now!" yelled one former campaign worker.

Now imagine the millions of people with the same mindset who voted for Obama, and are waiting for the goodies to start being passed out.

Fasten your seat belts.
