Penny Pritzker, the billionaire heiress whose family owns the Hyatt hotel chain, took a ride on Air Force One this afternoon from San Francisco to Portland, Ore., where President Obama was making a series of fundraising stops.The NFL players too. Well.
The ride came hours after the announcement of a global boycott of Hyatt Hotels by Unite Here, the nation’s largest hospitality workers union. That boycott has been joined by the National Organization for Women, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Black Justice Center, and the National Football League Players Association.
What do we think of that, folks.
Ads in the West Wing, campaigning on Air Force One:
Some critics took note of a recent report that Mr. Obama convened from Air Force One a conference call with supporters about fund-raising.Rides on Air Force One can be used to muscle people too. Can't they, Barack.
Back in the winter of 2009 the Preezy of the United Steezy invited an Illinois congressman on the plane heading to the Prairie State from DC. These days and most days we're not known by that moniker, we're the Chicago Way gone national. But on that day in Peoria, Caterpillar didn't cave. CAT didn't go for government "stimulus", another word for borrowing and spending America into penury.
CAT, according to Lutz on Kudlow last night, probably losing money on its Illinois plant these days, has asked its workers there to stay competitive.
The company is now facing a strike, but some machinists are crossing the line, understanding the company is doing well in these hard times, just announcing strong earnings, precisely because it works hard to meet the market and ensure CAT's future. Do we want yet another failed company for the government to bail out and hold captive, at our expense and that of our children and grandchildren? Do we want America to become a basket case like Europe? CAT gives a fair shake.
In 2009, in the well of the House, a Congressman from the Land of Lincoln stood up:
Let's take to heart some other words of Honest Abe's, as Americans who create, and invest and sweat are demonized by a sneering president.
You will find that all the arguments in favor of king-craft were of this class; they always bestrode the necks of the people, not that they wanted to do it, but because the people were better off for being ridden.No Barack.
