Stern's appointment to the deficit commission a mockery

Jaw-dropping.  Just when you thought it couldn't get stranger, the White House has appointed Andy Stern, head of the S.E.I.U., to the bipartisan deficit commission.  

For those unfamiliar with the S.E.I.U., it's America's fastest growing union, and is largely responsible for the rise of the public-sector, which has eclipsed its private counterpart in "represented" employees. Public  unions, by draining budgets (in the words of Mark Levin, "That's right, I said it!") foster an environment in which politicians back unions which, in turn, fund campaigns. 

Stern's appointment is pay-back. Since J.F.K. signed executive order #10988, public unions have destroyed fiscal prudence.  Placing Stern on the deficit commission to influence budgetary matters has the dual affect of  undermining both the commission and the president.  

On the anniversary of the stimulus, Obama said, "The government can build confidence and demand, and rescue people in hard times, but it will always be business and the private sector that generate jobs and recovery."  

The appointment of Stern makes a mockery of that.
