No Labels? No results? No problem.

No Labels, a group of Republican and Democrat Congressmen, gather to call for a solution to end the U.S. Government shut down on Capitol Hill in WashingtonLike other outside political groups, No Labels spends a large part of its budget maintaining and promoting its own organization. And though No Labels has positioned itself as a warrior against gridlock, in an internal document obtained by Yahoo News, the group is banking on more political dysfunction in an attempt to find “opportunity” and relevance for itself. The confidential document, distributed at No Labels’ May executive board meeting, outlines a “break through strategy” for the group, which despite raising millions and a buzzy-for-cable-news-talk launch, has struggled to find a foothold on the campaign trail or in the halls of Congress. The first point in that “break through strategy” is a “balance of power shift in the U.S. Senate,” a precarious position to outline, if not advocate, given No Labels’ aim of bipartisanship and that one of the group’s co-chairs, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, currently sits in the majority caucus.
