Today the UAW magazine, Solidarity, arrived in our mailbox. As an extremely liberal organization, they have predictably endorsed Barack Obama. There was a section devoted solely to the words of UAW local members. Their reasons for supporting Obama were very brilliant.
“I got to meet Senator Obama and talk with him, and I feel his theme of change is what we need right now.” MY RESPONSE: Yeah, we’re all starting to feel his theme of change.
“I think Obama has a vision of helping all people, and hopefully he’ll be able to focus on manufacturing jobs and creating new jobs.” MY RESPONSE: The reality is, he hasn’t put forth any plan for creating jobs. He also has no record in that direction. By the way, hopefully, I’ll win a million dollars.
“The GOP can’t divide us with nonissues any more, but we have a lot of educating to do between now and November.” MY RESPONSE: I couldn’t agree more. At least with the educating part. You liberals do seem to have a great knack for bringing up nonissues, though.
“I think we have to look at the economy and the direction we’re currently going in and ask ourselves if someone new can step into this role and steer us back in the right direction and put us back on the right path. I’d have to say the answer is yes. Obama’s going to have a fresh look on how to get these things done for our country.” MY RESPONSE: Fresh look. Change. Yeah, we’ve heard it before. Meanwhile, thousands of babies are murdered every day. Does Barack care? NO.
As I was saying, those were brilliant reasons for supporting Barack. By the way, I purposely left out the names of the writers, so they wouldn’t be embarrassed by the lack of logic.
