    to Obama the way Obama responds to the GOP

    on this one

      Even if we take different electoral paths, I'm sure we will be allied on key issues.

      The American people must wise up and rise up!

      Is Trumka there to support working people, or is he a de facto part of the Democratic party?

      Half our problem is that the entire left wing has been absorbed into the Democratic party, and has no independence whatsoever.  That means we cannot influence the Democrats, but can only obey them or reject them out of hand by becoming an apostate and turning to some third party.  We have no separate identities as movements anymore.

      The heart is a bloom, shoots up through stony ground/But there's no room, no space to rent in this town
