He’s been called, rightly or wrongly, the hand inside Barack Obama’s puppet. One thing is certain, however, Service Employees International Union president Andy Stern has a lot of sway with Barack Obama’s White House.
In fact, even as President Obama was nominating SEIU-radical lawyer Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board, the Wall Street Journal reports that SEIU’s Stern visited the White House some 22 times from January to July, more than anyone else on the White House visitors log.
The list [of visitors also] includes William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Michael Moore, Robert Kelly(R. Kelly), Malik Shabazz, and Michael Jordan.
But the White House said those aren’t the guys you’re thinking of. Nor is the log complete.
So, how much pull does Mr. Stern and his purple-clad comrades have in the White House?
It is well known that the SEIU has put high-ranking union leader Dennis Rivera has been workinghand-in-glove on President Obama’s plan to nationalize health care through the so-called “public option.” However, it is still rather disturbing how closely the White House follows the SEIU’s lead.
Earlier this month, in what many view as a ‘war on free speech,’ the White House entered the fray, joining the SEIU in attacking the Chamber of Commerce before giving the appearance of easing up when it drew criticism for creating an ‘enemies list.’
While it is one thing for a candidate running for president to pledge allegiance to a particular group (as then-candidate Obama did to the SEIU), it is quite another for the President of the United States to let someone else drive the bus, as the rest of America is shoved to the back.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It’s the worst (but entirely predictable) of our fears: Donald Trump’s views and statements on women are being used not just presidential ads, but now Senate race ads. Look no further than this devastating ad released by Arkansas Democrat Connor Eldridge. It’s no taking words out of context. It’s not inferring things from what Donald Trump has said. It | Read More »
