Iowa Insider: Union president: Obama stood "idly by" when workers lost jobs

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider

The president of a major labor union is blasting Democrat Barack
Obama, arguing he failed to help save jobs at Maytag's Galesburg,
Ill., plant. R. Thomas Buffenbarger, president of the International
Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, took aim at Obama in
the union's newsletter, which is e-mailed to 18,000 members. "Illinois
State Senator Obama came to a single rally as union, state and
community leaders tried to keep the Maytag plant in Galesburg open,"
Buffenbarger said.
