    White House official: 'Organized labor just flushed $10 million down the toilet'

    A senior White House official just called me with a very pointed message for the administration's sometime allies in organized labor, who invested heavily in beating Blanche Lincoln, Obama's candidate, in Arkansas.

    "Organized labor just flushed $10 million of their members' money down the toilet on a pointless exercise," the official said. "If even half that total had been well-targeted and applied in key House races across this country, that could have made a real difference in November."

    Lincoln relied heavily both on Obama's endorsement, which she advertised relentlessly on radio and in the mail, and on the backing of former President Bill Clinton, who backed her to the hilt.

    Lincoln foe Bill Halter had the unstinting support of the AFL-CIO, SEIU, AFSCME and other major unions. And labor officials Tuesday evening were already working to spin the narrow loss of their candidate, Bill Halter, as a moral victory, but the cost in money and in the goodwill of the White House may be a steep price to pay for a near miss.

    I love watching the left squabble among themselves over this one. They've had 2 high profile Senate races where they tried to sack their own candidate from the left...PA and AR...and in the only one where they weren't running against a "damaged goods" party-changer, they lost.


    They're just pissed the Right is doing better at reforming "their" side of the spectrum than the libs are on theirs. The Tea Party is pulling the GOP to the right...while the DNC is also having to run to the right to stay elected.


    When both parties are moving right, the net movement of the spectrum is to the right, folks, and the libs are pissed about it.

    Halfmile, your a retired UNION {alledged} IBEW {electrician?}. Go figure. Disgrace is the only word that comes to mind. HYPOCRITE is the other.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the "Prince of the Fools" should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

    The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president. Liberals are a disgrace.

    Only a bona fide MORON would equate IBEW With SEIU, AFSCME and their ilk.

    Somewhere a rock is missing its slug.

    Dimfire, you need to go back to junior high before you can be qualified to discuss organized labor.

    I can only think of one reason for your meaningless uninvited babble on this forum and that's Masochism.

    Please leave quietly.

    I hate filthy communist inspired unions. This country is about dead. That fool Obama and the other fools the Democrats elected are just about to destroy us beyond repair. Democrats still think Obama and Pelosi are doing a good job. How can any person be that stupid.

    Halfmile ;Tradesmen like me built america with our hands, idiots like you tear it down with their keyboards. You have the right initials Hypocritical Moron.IBEW member rtd.your a joke." While it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is most certainly true that most STUPID people are conservative" You prove the second part of the quote again. Wannabe electrician,wannabe republican,wannabe wannabe. Do you attend retired members meetings through the front door and look them in the eye? You are a disgrace to the IBEW and a HYPOCRITE.

    Rimfingeridiot;;you aren't smart enough to build anything, not one thing. The only recognition you deserve, is to be known as an idiot that voted for and supported the absolute WORST president in country history. THERE HAVE BEEN NONE WORSE,,Rimfingeridiot.


    "idiots like you tear it down" you cry.. This country will never be as great as it once was, because of ignorant people like you and the people you elected, Rimfingeridiot. Never. You are to damn dumb to realize exactly where this country is headed.




    The best thing for you to do is lower your head in disgrace,,,and leave...
