L'Hypocrisy! Le Outrage!
Via Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin's place:
In 2007, Democrats led by Sherrod Brown, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton proposed the Forewarn Act, which would have strengthened the WARN Act by expanding the number of companies under the law’s jurisdiction and requiring 90 days’ notice. The bill didn’t go anywhere. Now, apparently, the president not only opposes the principles underlying legislation he himself supported, he opposes WARN entirely.
And whilst we're capering about on our collective high horse, l'irony!!!
“For too long, employers have failed to notify workers that they’re about to lose their jobs due to mass layoffs or plant closings even though notice is required by the WARN Act,” then-Sen. Obama said in a July 17, 2007 press release. “The least employers can do when they’re anticipating layoffs is to let workers know they’re going to be out of a job and a paycheck with enough time to plan for their future.”
Holy Obamagasm, Batman!

What do you expect Lockheed Martin to do? The great majority of their business is with the government.
Show character and dignity and respect for the rule of law, when they are offered a government bailout, and allowed to keep their big contracts, especially the F-35? Gee, I thought that all ended with that Bush joker.
If only the President had time to negotiate a real budget cut with the Congress, all the sequestration talk would go away.
Is there a clue in there somewhere?
When you have the Main Stream Media there to lie or just not report that the Executive Branch and a public corporation have gone into a conspiracy to BREAK THE LAW, what do you do?
What do you do?

Rules? Apply to liberals? Surely you jest!
As a much wiser man than me once said, the core of liberal thought can be summed up as: "All are equal, but some are more equal than others".

James Lipton clasps his hands with a reverence I have only seen in a House of Worship, but the movie comparisons were so...arty and imitative of reality. I can only hope to be as respectful and reverent of Mittens as Lipton is to Obama.

Wouldn't it be poetic justice if, after Xerxes loses, the Romney DOJ holds any non-complying companies to the letter of the law.....

They really ought to, since the law plainly doesn't allow a waiver of this type.
