They never learn, never

Laborers' union expected to endorse Chris Christie

by Laura Clawson

This is ... let's start with "short-sighted" and go on from there. The Laborers' International Union of North America apparently plans to endorse New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for a second term. NJ.com coverage focuses heavily on one leader of the union:

1. Unions have been their own worst enemies for decades....

they get into bed with whatever politician promises their executives the most, and forget about their members.

2. They need to stop

creating monsters:

Scott Brown, a perfect example of why Republicans should never be given a pass

3. Exactly...

any perhaps it would be good to ask why the AFL-CIO endorsed Brown in the first place in 2008...

4. Republicans must be really good at duping people.

I mean, look at all the fear mongering around a return to the Senate after he was exposed and got his ass kicked.

7. Republicans have been

absolutely brilliant in their long range planning and their messaging. Democrats, who consider themselves the intellectually superior party, have been playing defense for over 40 years and routinely fail the messaging wars. That's Democratic hubris and the nation has been paying the price. All of the analysis following Obama's reelection has failed to recognize one simple fact....For the first time, in a long time, a Democrat won the messaging war and he did it with a simple slogan...fairness.

5. I have mever been in a union but have always supported them.

 

This is a line. If they cross it I no longer see Amy reason to support unions.

6. Maybe this Union is doomed to die of its own collective ignorance

It seems like they have forgotten who their enemies are and have fallen for the propaganda, yet again. Doesn't Christie have a few years to go before his next election, anyway? What's the hurry?

8. NJ gubernatorial election

will be held in Nov. 2013....Not too far off at all. Construction workers in NJ make very good money and NJ is a very expensive state in which to live. (I lived there for 16 years and we had a friend who worked in the construction industry). Republicans have been masters of the divide and conquer strategy...and most people are just selfish enough to be easy prey.

9. Unreal

Christie is openly hostile to unions, especially teacher unions, yet they back him?

Unbelievable.
