    Default Union frustration adds to Dems’ woes

    Terry O’Sullivan, president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, said his members have been frustrated with Democrats for some time.

    “I certainly think that it’s going to affect turnout. … You have people that are disillusioned and angry; they either vote a different way or they don’t vote at all,” O’Sullivan told The Hill. “You can sense my temper getting up. Our members are no different than I am. They’re not happy. Is that going to have an impact? I would say, bet your ass it’s going to.”
    Labor is caught in a familiar conundrum: unhappy with Democrats but fearing the wrath of Republicans if they gain power.

    How about a candidate on a ticket other than the 2 big evils? I give them all consideration.

    Me too. I was one of those that thought Ross Perot would have been a great president.
