EVERYONE VS LABOR:

White House official: 'Organized labor just flushed $10 million down the toilet' (Ben Smith, 6/08/10, Politico)

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."


That should go over well.
