From the article:

This is important not only for what it says about the unions in question, but also because it’s another aspect of President Obama’s lackluster crisis management. He promised to cut through all the “red tape” to get help to disaster areas ASAP, but officials at every level contacted about these union antics either profess ignorance of the story, or refuse to comment upon it. Barack Obama is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Big Labor; he should have known this sort of thing was coming, and used his Rolodex full of union bosses to prevent it.
