On today’s show, Glenn will have more on Richard Trumka, Andy Stern, and unions. Why is President Obama meeting with union leaders and the AFL-CIO more than his own cabinet?
What are the two most important words in America? They’ve been on the frontline of the progressive movement and they’ve been called the third rail of politics. What are they? Social Security. The idea of a safety net for society. This isn’t the failing entitlement program, but something more.
But now that safety net is gone. America is no longer standing for principles. Iran warships pass through the Suez Canal? Quiet. Oil prices are starting to rise? Nothing. Gadaffi shooting down his own people in Libya? Silence.
When unions started to protest in Wisconsin President Obama was speaking on Day 1. When Egypt set the world on fire, he spoke up.
What does Glenn mean by "wiping the slate clean"?
Glenn will give his reaction on radio and TV today.
