Tuff choice big union or green energy.

One of the problems with Barack Obama’s brand of ultra-divisive crony politics is that eventually you come to a moment where two of your cronies strongly disagree with each other, and you’ve got to pick which one to bestow your royal favor upon. In this case, it’s labor unions versus “green energy,” as Obama infuriated labor unions by congratulating their arch-enemy Wal-Mart for making a big commitment to solar panels.
Obama’s making a shrewd calculation that he needs the power and money he can harvest from his global-warming agenda far more than he needs the dying Big Labor movement, which isn’t about to start voting Republican just because he stages a few photo-ops at Wal-Mart.
