5. The real dagger in the back...
...was the White House's enthusiastic support for Blanche Lincoln in the Arkansas Primary 2010
when there was a good Pro-LABOR, Pro-HealthCare DEMOCRAT (Lt Gov. Bill halter) who was polling better than Blanche against the Republican in the General.

Blanche Lincoln had crowed about derailing the Public Option.

The White House even sent the Old Dog back to Arkansas to rescue Lincoln's failing campaign.

Adding insult to injury, a "Whitehouse Spokesperson" then ridiculed Organized LABOR & Grass Roots for "wasting $10 Million Dollars" by supporting a Pro-LABOR candidate against the White House's support for Anti-LABOR Blue Dogs.

SEE: Arkansas Democratic Primary, 2010.

Message from the "Centrist" Democratic party Leadership received Loud & Clear.

You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their excuses.
