File photo of two Volkswagen employees walking through the axle alignment department in Chattanooga TennesseePresident Barack Obama on Friday waded into Washington’s war of words over a union organizing election in Tennessee when he accused Republicans of trying to block labor’s efforts at an auto plant in that state, according to a Democratic aide who heard the remarks. A Democratic aide said that Obama, speaking during a closed meeting with U.S. House of Representatives Democrats, said everyone is in favor of the United Auto Workers representing Volkswagen workers except for local politicians who “are more concerned about German shareholders than American workers.” House Democrats were winding up a three-day retreat in the small town on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, about 85 miles east of Washington. Obama briefly spoke to the Democrats about a range of issues while reporters were present.
