Hold on

Yesterday's e-mail from the Republican National Committee seems to attack Hillary Clinton for failing to support efforts to unionize Wal-Mart.

The e-mail quotes an ABC News blog:

In six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986 and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world's largest retailer waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store workers. ...

Wait a minute. Doesn't the RNC hate unions? Doesn't the RNC love Wal-Mart? Is the well so poisoned that Republicans attack Clinton even when she takes positions that Republicans support?

Beware of exploding heads.

I think you would have a hard time finding anywhere where the RNC either hates unions or lives Wal-Mart.

Your confusing conservatism with a political party.

Mark T said...

Democrats ought to take a closer look at Clinton. But they won't. Just win, baby.

No David - the GOP doesn't hate unions or WALMART.

I spend much of my income there because they have driven down their cost of business and driven down prices as well.

It's an example of the market at work.

I don't fault Hillary for being on their board, I just dislike her being a hypocrit.

As far as Unions go, I am pro-union, and I believe the GOP is as well, trying to build businesses and create jobs.

I have this conversation weekly with union workers.

If I were working at CHS refinery in Laurel, I would take a good look at the environmentalist wackos that sit at the Democrats table, and wonder why I should support a party with elements in it trying to eliminate my job.

There hasn't been an oil refinery built in about 3 decades in America, and it's not the fault of the GOP.

To be human is to be a hypocrite.

John McCain is trying to cheat and lie to win this election. It's just like when he cheated on his disabled wife and eventually divorced her for his rich, younger mistress.

It's also like the Keating 5, when McCain cheated the American tax payers out of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Since McCain can't really talk about his senate record (amnesty, against tax cuts, 50 cent gasoline tax, etc.) he tries to play up his "character". I think his character is despicable. Cheating on and divorcing a crippled wife, wow that's bad.

Mitt is going all the way!!!
