AFL-CIO official: Jesus couldn't do anything more than Obama has done

Union Big Says Obama Just as Good as Jesus

(By Kerry Picket, Washington Times) - If you thought liberals stopped admiring President Barack Obama as the Messiah, think again. In an October 15th piece about union membership's lack of enthusiasm for the 2010 campaign, the Associated Press interviewed Herb Johnson, secretary-treasurer of the Missouri AFL-CIO. He gave his explanation as to why he thinks union members and their households are less than excited about this year's mid-term elections:

"Sometimes you have to remind people that, `Hey, Jesus Christ couldn't do anything more than President Obama has on the agenda we supported two years ago without the United States Senate having the votes for cloture to overcome a filibuster" by Republicans, said Herb Johnson, secretary-treasurer of the Missouri AFL-CIO.
