Kerry Comes Out Against Unions

Kerry Attacks Rival Dean Over Protectionism:

“Speaking in Detroit, Mr. Kerry said that Dr. Dean and Representative Richard A. Gephardt of Missouri, who have staked out traditional pro-labor positions on trade, were pandering to unions and advocating a ‘retreat from the global economy.'”

Yep, that’s the way to win the Democratic nomination. Come out against unions and workers.

Next I suppose he’ll make a bold statement by hiring telemarketers from India, as Bush did, to make calls on behalf of his campaign.

In the past year I have moved from being a big Kerry supporter, to being disillusioned with Kerry, to discovering Dean but saying I think Kerry would be a great president, to thinking Kerry’s way out of touch and should retire. With this statement by Kerry I’m wondering what kind of morons he is surrounding himself with, and why he listens to them and what positions he is willing to hold on to out of principle. I don’t want to use the ‘M’ word to describe the man himself – the man who once headed up VietNam Veterans Against the War and who brought to light the CIA’s possible trade in cocaine – but he’s pushing me there.
