Slow news day at AP - Unions Not Happy

You know it's a slow news day when the AP has a headline pointing out that unions are not happy with President Obama anymore.  The real news flash is the one for the unions - waking up to the reality that Obama's a best friend of...Obama.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- In the early days of the Obama administration, organized labor had grand visions of pushing through a sweeping agenda that would help boost sagging membership and help revive union strength.

Now labor faces this reality: Public employee unions are in a drawn-out fight for their very survival in Wisconsin, Ohio and other states where GOP lawmakers have curbed collective bargaining rights.

Also, many union leaders are grousing that the president they worked so hard to elect has not focused enough on job creation and other bold plans to get their members back to work.

"Obama campaigned big, but he's governing small," said Larry Hanley, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union.
Too bad, so sad.  Not for the unions, for AP.  That just shows how little is going on at this moment.
