Handwringing after the November election concentrated on racial and ethnic groups. We saw that 95 percent of blacks voted for Obama. In some Philadelphia wards, not accounting for the possibility of fraud, 100% of voters voted for Obama.
Well, we’ve been duped. Obama’s election was only partly due to a heavy turnout of Hispanics and blacks. The real reason is found in public sector unions. While private sector unions make up about 6% of all unions, it’s public sector unions — government unions — where money and power are concentrated.
