The White House is still refusing to comment on Jimmy Hoffas profane, threatening warm-up speech before President Obamas Labor Day gig in Detroit yesterday.
Theyve got each others back.
Heres a flashback from May 2008 that you may remember.
Sen. Barack Obama won the endorsement of the Teamsters earlier this year after privately telling the union he supported ending the strict federal oversight imposed to root out corruption, according to officials from the union and the Obama campaign.
John Coli, vice president for the Teamsters central region, who brokered the Teamsters endorsement, said Sen.

Democrats - thick as thieves.
FASCISM IN ACTION, folks...
Remember how often we were told while growing up, “Don’t worry. That can’t EVER happen in America!”
so did the probe actually end? or did obama leave them hanging like everyone else?

Gee, I must have missed obama, Holder and the EEOC filing a lawsuit against Ford for doing this; using the precidence of not allowing Boeing to move to South Carolina.
And, the thing is, it's not just the Boeing factory and engineering jobs, BUT look at the thousands of jobs that would be building and supporting the new plant facilities. Billions of new, repeat, new dollars would be spent on this. That's a real stimulis. I wouldn't blame Boeing if they moved from Washington State to India. Now, that's something obama could support.
My what a wonderful way for the left to accept the grass root opposition? Gabby Giffords must really be proud of them!
