Republicans fight back in Boeing labor drama
Congressional Republicans are demanding the National Labor Relations Board produce a raft of documents concerning the board’s complaint against Boeing Co. and other decisions the lawmakers say overstep the board’s authority.
House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), along with several Republicans on the committee, wrote to NLRB Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon to demand documents linked to the Boeing complaint and union election laws in Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah.
The NLRB’s Boeing complaint seeks to force the company to move its newly built production line in South Carolina to Washington state, a remedy pushed by union members who alleged Boeing built the nonunion plant in South Carolina in retaliation for their past strikes.

PUNISH YOUR ENEMIES
In the 2008 elections Obama didn’t carry South Carolina, he did however carry the state of Washington and in 2012 Obama is expecting to see these same results.
The drama that has been foisted upon Boeing, SC and Washington is the direct result of Obama punishing his “enemies”. By using the National Labor Relations Board as a tool, Obama is trying force Boeing to open shop in one of his states (so much for free enterprise) and punish the good decent American folks of South Carolina for not carrying him 2008.
“PUNISH YOUR ENEMIES, REWARD YOUR FRIENDS”
At least Obama is practicing what he preaches.
Just a note, the Democrats got their collective butts handed to them in the November 2010 elections, the same elections that Obama was referring to in the video. I guess America knows who her “enemies” are.
