    SEIU [ACORN] is going to have a voice in labor relations in the White House.

    There is nothing surprising about Obama appointing someone from the unions to this post.

    That's life.

    No kidding. I would never assume that Obama would move out of character.

    Problem being that SEIU is a problem.

    It has no business being involved in our government. It's like appointing the head of La Raza to run I.C.E.

    This appointee isn't technically a lobbyist....but he represents SEIU thus there is a conflict of interest here.

    Be specific hun.

    Also, are the oil companies and auto companies actively trying to rig elections, and re-elect Democrats by hook or crook?

    Are they committing felonies in the process?

    Absolutely! Just lke there is nothing surprising when a republican appoints some former CEO. I happen to think you need both management and labor representatives on the labor relations board.

    Not if they are criminals.

    Hard to list all of the laws this organization is breaking and getting paid by taxpayer funds to do it.

    I guess being the head of a major company is a crime now.

    Jesus......

    They don't try to "rig" elections.

    And EVERYONE tries to re-elect their own by hook or by crook.

    Ever read Bush v Gore?

    Again, that's life.

    There was a Surrogate's election in NY not so many years ago, where the precincts that were gonig to go to one candidate didn't get polling machines til most of the day was over.

    And that was a PRIMARY.
