    Default AFL-CIO’s Trumka Talks to the White House Every Day

    Nice, huh? Another report says that there are at least 6 cabinet members Obama has not talked to in 2 years. So he has no time for his own cabinet members yet he can talk the Union Hack daily.

    RICHARD TRUMKA, PRESIDENT, AFL-CIO: I'm at the White House a couple times a week. Two, three times a week. I have conversations everyday with someone in the White House or in the administration. Everyday.

    Maybe they should instead be talking to the Koch brothers, like Walker in Wisconsin does.

    That's actually a good idea Buzz. Might help get the country back on the right track...

    The supreme irony is that while Obama has plenty of time for regular chats with Unions flacks he has six cabinet members that he did not meet with or even speak to on the phone in the first two YEARS of his admin. http://hotair.com/archives/2011/01/2...rst-two-years/

    So here we have this supposed post-partisan president who not only doesn't speak to his opposition or anyone outside of his administration, he doesn't even speak to many members of his own administration besides a small inner-circle of union flacks and his Chicago mafia of political goons.

    I didn't hear him say he ever talked to Obama. He just said he talked to "someone" at the White House everyday. There are more people at the White House than Obama.

    just the mere fact that the head of one of the most powerful unions in the country is at the WH that often shows how much influence he has...He's obviously not there to have a play day with the kids,and I dont think he is there to train the family dog...the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff doesnt spend that much time there

    If you think the Koch brothers would do anything to benefit anyone but themselves, you're playing right into their hands. Its a nice club, but we ain't on the member list!

Other than the $600 million they've given to various philanthropies (or about 6x more than they've given to political causes). Its a nice club, but we ain't on the member list! Again with the class warfare stuff? It just looks silly and trite when that baloney spills off the keyboard of a guy who has a household income in the top 1 to 2 percent of the world and still has enough free time to dick around on the interwebs for half the day.

    Typical lib BS. Why should they be excluded from the politcal process? They have as mach right as the Lib patron George Soros (and give a hell of a lot less money than Soros). The game works both ways, don't be such a flaming hypocryte Little Rog.
