    leadership is totally aware of what's going on.  It's the rank-and-file who apparently don't have a clue.  And it's understandable, in that some of the leaders make a point of keeping members distracted with useless little "busy work."

    A bit pushed for time, or I would post a video clip of one union leader literally scoffing at the idea that President Obama would "listen to her coalition."  Will try to post it sometime later, when this topic comes up again.  

    I tried several times to Tweet this video clip to several union Twitter feeds.  Guess what?  It showed up on NONE OF THEM.  Can't be a fluke.  I tried too many times, on several feeds.  So they surely must be censoring the information (in this case, the Tweets) that their members see (on union websites, anyway).
