Obama voting "Present" once again

Obama, who has brought voting present to an art form, has struck again.  Where is he in the Chicago teacher's strike?

Remember this:
When I’m in the White House, i’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself. I’ll walk on that picket line with you as POTUS, because workers deserve to know that somebody’s standing in their court."

Obviously the teacher strike is a political minefield for Obama. But the irony is delicious. Why is it that the left still defends him? Maybe its because they know that he is 100% behind them but that his quest for power comes first. And the left is cool with that.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

C. S. Lewis
