    This is just an outrage! Hoffa declares war on the tea party and republicans and Obama follows him, praises him and goes on to proclaim his support for collective bargining, this in the city of Detroit which is essentially bankrupt. It's a city totally devastated bu unions and 50 years of democrat control. Parts of the city are being bulldozed, the unemployment rate is officially 12.5% but in reality is much higher, and home values have dropped as much as 80%! This is what Obama wants to bring to all of America and apparently he's willing to use his "army" of union workers to make it happen by force!
    Ah the new democrat civility!

    Maybe people who haven't got a clue can only blame Obama for everything. Maybe this is his sole purpose, kind of like a black hole.

      I can only blame Obama for what he's done. To hold him unaccountable for everything is also and indication of cluelessness.

    When this kind of language comes from the right, it's "violent rhetoric." It's okay for the left to use it, though.

      Noooo, it's been allright for the right to use it.

      All of a sudden, they are upset?

      At least he didn't say the TP hates America, their candidates weren't born here, and are ant-America. But if he does say those things.....well, it's just the norm now, isn't it?

        LMC, be honest. You've seen me denounce this kind of rhetoric when it came from the right, too. I don't like it, no matter where it comes from.

          You are a very small minority Habee. The majority of Republicans have sided with the Glenn Beck's of the world....a least outwardly.

          They have sent hatred out for years...and it has damaged people! This is now their blowback.

          And well deserved.

    Of course he condones them... he would have spouted that BS himself had he thought he could get away with it.

    And Hoffa isn't saying anything now that the unions and Leftists have not been doing for years now. intimidation and violence is what they have been about since they were founded.

    Obama's own brown-shirts.

    What was said wasn't a call for violence against any American, by anybody, including Hoffa. What we have here is Republican-TeaParty HOGWASH. Its just a production of Fox Reality tv news.

      I would smash every Union in this country to nothing.

      Begining with the Fed, State, Local and county Govts.

        Yes, I'm beginning to see your point, if it wasn't for unions you wouldn't have been able to afford to get on line.

        Does that include police and firefighters?

          Yes.

          All Unions.

          They are obsolete.

          If my employees all want to group up and threaten to quit if I do not give them all raises... they can all have fun hangin on the corner pan-handling together.

          Let them split thier beggings everyday among themselves and see how long that sharing spirit survives. Lets see how long it is before they each go earn their own keep.
