Who Palin’s or Obama’s — offers more growth and jobs?

This article was last year April 2010, but can be relevant to the economy and job problems that we are in now May 2011. Compare and have fun! Palin is the winner!


It’s a classic movie plot. Think “Woman of the Year,” with Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. At first the man and the woman hate each other, then they fall into each other’s arms. Well, feature the fight that has erupted between the president of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka, and Governor Palin of Alaska. The leader of Big Labor went to Anchorage to give a speech and attacked Mrs. Palin, accusing her of doing everything from writing notes on her hands to coming out with conspiracy theories about President Obama and his “death panels” to getting close to calling for violence. “Sometimes — about Sarah Palin — you’ve just got to laugh,” Mr. Trumka said. “ . . . But it’s not really funny.”

Mrs. Palin turned around and gave as good as she got, or better, in one of her patented Facebook postings, a demarche headlined “Union Brothers and Sisters, Join Our Commonsense Cause!” She wrote as a one-time card-carrying sister of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, by virtue of her jobs at a local power utility and telephone company; her husband, Todd, was in the Electrical Workers and then in the Steelworkers, where he was an officer of the local. Responding to Mr. Trumka, she asserted that it was “kind of ironic that a union boss has the gall to accuse anyone of threatening violence,” particularly in light of what she called the “violent attempts” by the Service Employees “to intimidate those who wanted to make their voices heard in last year’s town halls.” She argued the real jobs problem was being caused by the policies of President Obama.

“Mr. Trumka can laugh at her, but eventually he’s going to be confronted with this history. It may be unlikely that the Trumka-Palin feud will have what they call a Hollywood ending, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see America’s union members discover which strategic course — Mrs. Palin’s or Mr. Obama’s — offers more growth and jobs.”
