The LA Times story is about that protest.
The screening [Won't Back Down] was not an official convention event, but required approval from the highest levels of the White House and the Democratic Party, according to the Huffington Post. In a measure of blessing, convention chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa stopped by to speak briefly to the attendees.
When a leader of the overhaul [deform] movement was hired to be Obama's spokeswoman for California, the California Federation of Teachers told state Democratic officials that if she was not fired, the union might not "participate" in Obama's reelection effort. The spokeswoman remains on the Obama team.Wow, "might not participate" -- fighting words. The Obama people must have laughed themselves silly.
Think Chicago --- if Rahm Emanuel smashes the teacher strike while Obama is of course silent, how many Chicago teachers do you think "might not participate." Does anyone think it possible that Obama loses his home state? Remember how Adrian Fenty, an up and coming Washington DC politician, has his career ruined by Michelle Rhee's stewardship of the DC schools. If that should happen to Obama I will have mixed feelings because I despise the Republicans so much. But then there are plenty of Dems to despise too.
I know one thing. I won't be giving money to Obama or get up at 6AM to go to Allentown as a volunteer. Multiply me by thousands of teachers who might vote for Obama but won't be getting out the vote and there may very well be some chickens coming home to roost despite the absolutely awful lying Republican candidates who will lead us into a Greater Depression than the Great Depression.
