Asked why he didn’t visit Wisconsin to support efforts to recall Republican Governor Scott Walker for his legislative attacks on unions, President Obama said he was too busy.
“I have a lot of responsibilities,” he told WBAY, the CBS affiliate in Green Bay in one of eight local interviews he conducted Monday to launch a White House initiative that will direct $2 billion to rural communities from the Small Business Administration.
Obama has been criticized by Democratic activists for not helping Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s unsuccessful effort to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker in last week’s vote.
“I would have loved to have seen a different result,” he said.
Too busy to keep his promise to stand with and defend unions but not too busy to attend fundraisers held by the president of a private equity firm, the same kinds of private equity firms that Obama says don’t hold American values.
Oh yeah, let’s not forget about that broken promise to raise the minimum wage too
