Quote Of The Day – Obama's Schadenfreude Edition

Organized labor just flushed $10 million of their members’ money down the toiled on a pointless exercise.

An unnamed White House official, on the AFL-CIO, SEIU, AFSCME, and other major union’s campaign to oust Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) in in her primary in favor of challenger Lt. Gov. Bill Halter. Quote via Ben Smith.

    “Organized labor just flushed $10 million of their members’ money down the toiled on a pointless exercise.”

    Their very good at that. Too bad the members pension funds aren’t as secure as they might be. But what the hell, the union bosses pensions are FULLY funded. Priorities.

    Since SEIU was backing Halter, does this mean that Barry no longer ‘talks to Andy Stern’?

  • Jim Addison

    Andy Stern is drawing his big fat pension now – he retired, figuring there was only going to be so much left to steal after Obama finishes with the economy.

    Jim Geraghty figured it out back during the 2008 primaries: “All of Barack Obama’s statements come with an expiration date – ALL of them.” Hey, the guy threw his spiritual leader of twenty years and his own grandmother under the bus, and treats the media who safeguarded his path to the White House as if they were an annoying stray cat. Did the unions think they owned him? No, he saw it the other way around, and gave them billions in taxpayer funds, and now isn’t happy with his investment.

    When will these folks learn that in dealing with a narcissist, you’re his friend as long as you are doing exactly what he wants and not criticizing him in any way. Fail that test, and he’ll abandon you alone on the street and turn back to his only true love: the mirror.

    AFL-CIO injects 10 MM$ of stimulus money into the local economy.
    Well that worked out well.

    i guess it’s time to increase everyone’s union dies.

  • John S

    Ah, yes. And organized labor plans to spend another $100 million this fall. Let’s hope that money is wasted as well. What the government fails to understand, there’s 20 million of us unemployed and underemployed out there. We’re pissed and we vote.
