So they tell Obama "the Chinese aren't playing fair, blah, blah" and Obama nails China with a tariff to suck up to his electorate.

Congrats, Democracy has finally progressed to the point where those who elect the official really do get to call the shots...unfortunately the electorate is generally made up of short-sighted, narrow-minded citizens (not that I blame them).
If anyone or anything is short sighted, it's the unions. If unions truly had the worker's best interest at heart, they wouldn't run the economic engine that provides for their members into the ground. Obviously, Obama doesn't even think that unions can be competitive. Imagine that.
