Sad: AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka plays the race card on white union members who didn't vote for Obama in 2008

AFL-CIO members should revolt and fire Richard Trumka's sorry butt...
(Reuters) - ... A quarter of AFL-CIO members did not vote for Obama in 2008.

"Some of this I think was pure racism," said Trumka. "Some of them would be gun owners, some of them would be right-wing. Some of them would be ... died-in-the-wool Republicans."

Democrats acknowledge that Obama is unlikely to capture the white male vote, but say he can be re-elected if he minimizes the damage because of his huge edge with black and Hispanic voters.
