Oh noes! We help put these people in power and they are doing absolutely NOTHING to further our agenda. Are we talking about Republican leadership and fiscal conservatives? No, we talking Democratic leadership and union bosses. Yeah, the teamsters are pissed at the White House and Congress in general. I still think that with all this upheaval and ignoring the bases for the center, those poles are going to slip sooner or later. I doubt it will lead to the Conservative Teamster Party but loyalty works both ways. If Obama wants to keep the union vote, he's going to have to at least throw them a bone somewhere. If not, they WILL vote elsewhere. For now, they may just stay home, but if they're ignored enough someone will swoop in and take their votes.
Now don't get me wrong. If someone is going to get completely ignored in this country the labor unions would be my vote. But despite decreasing numbers, there are still a heck of a lot of unionized workers out there and they all get a vote (sometimes two or three).
