So much for civility and patriotism.

The AFL-CIO's Richard Trumka, a man not known for his grasp of nuance, just released the following statement to commemorate 9/11:
In sum, the leader of the nation's largest union -- who was an honored guest of the White House at the president's jobs speech last night -- thinks it's appropriate to commemorate the tenth anniversary of horrifying and deadly attack by foreign terrorists that killed thousands of Americans by attacking a host of other Americans whose cardinal sin is not agreeing with Richard Trumka.
But the AFL-CIO has spent over $100 million electing Democrats in the last two election cycles. So if anyone asks Barack Obama about Trumka's 9/11 remarks -- just go ahead and expect the president to forget all about that speech back in January where he said "only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to the challenges of our nation."
