    About what I expected from him for his final two years given his stance immediately following the election.

    Isn't this his fourth veto Obama's fourth veto protects unionization rules ?

    Republicans hate unions, because unions advocate for the worker. And republicans place capital above labor.

    Yep. I disagree with it. I think it's bad for the country. And I don't think it's the smart move politically.

    But I don't blame him for doing it, nor do I think he's betraying the country, nor do I think he's think we need to somehow change the way government works to combat him. He's doing what he feels is best and is most in line with the wishes of those elected him; while I may disagree with them, I don't fault politicians for that.

    It's the same thing I've argued when for 6+ years many liberals have been on this forum blaming, blasting, and accusing republicans of every possible negative thing you can think of for doing the same thing; what their constituents elected them to do.

    I have no problem with private unions because the representation is balanced.......unions represent the workers vs. management/BofB representing the company share-holders. Public unions on the other hand are corrupt, especially in liberal states.......the unions represent the workers vs. the elected officials leave the tax-payers to get screwed, as they give the unions everything they want quid pro quo for campaign donations and support. As sleazy as it gets.

    Re: Obama vetoes Republican bid to block union election rules

    and thank goodness he vetoed it. the prevailing attitude in the US seems to be that we don't need unions anymore or that having them around is harmful. nothing could be further from the truth. protecting the freedom of labor to organize and to bargain collectively ensures that the gains made in the american workplace won't be erased. there's a reason we have the rules in place that we do and people seem to either have forgotten why or are simply unaware. if you look at history, unions are an extremely important part of the free market and just the threat of employees organizing is something that prevents a ton of exploitation.
