In last night's Mitt-Romney-makeout of a Republican primary debate, Newt Gingrich attempted everything possible to try and reanimate the corpse of his candidacy. And packed within his talk of space stations on the moon and the "Obama depression," he threw some bloody meat to his party's ravenous anti-union hordes.
. . . One of the things the Congress should do immediately is defund the National Labor Relations Board which has gone into South Carolina to punish Boeing, which wants to put 8,000 American jobs in South Carolina by fundamentally eliminating right-to-work at the National Labor Relations Board.
That's a real, immediate threat from the Obama administration to eliminate right-to-work. And I think that it is fundamentally the wrong direction. I hope that New Hampshire does adopt right-to-work. I frankly keep it at the state level because as each new state becomes right-to-work, they send a signal to the remaining states, don't be stupid.
Yes, Newt. You want to defund the NLRB because of the complaint its members filed over a plant in South Carolina, not because it's an age-old conservative wet dream and you need someone, anyone, to pay attention to you.
