pResident Labor Relations: Wrong Again!

Maybe his teleprompter doesn't have auto-correct.  It's stuck on "Stupid".

President Obama again compared Republicans in Congress to workers going on strike, telling reporters Tuesday that GOP lawmakers had no more right to shut down the government than factory workers had to walk off their jobs.

The president made similar remarks at an event in Rockville, Md., on Thursday. He even referenced that event in his remarks Tuesday.

... In each case, Obama seemed unaware that the worker activity he was describing was a classic organized labor strike, a federally protected activity under the National Labor Relations Act. The law was signed by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1935 and is considered one of the era's major liberal victories....

Deeper and deeper into the hole he digs:

...Obama's comments annoyed AFL-CIO spokesman Josh Goldstein, who tweeted: "He's really using this analogy again?"

Well, sure.  It doesn't bother him to be utterly stupid.  See, e.g., the C-in-C's comments which impaired the administration of military justice.

Stupid is as stupid does--and this guy has "stupid" in spades.
