John Edwards:

“When you think about what Ronald Reagan did to the American people, to the middle class to the working people,” said Edwards.

“He was openly – openly – intolerant of unions and the right to organize. He openly fought against the union and the organized labor movement in this country. He openly did extraordinary damage to the middle class and working people, created a tax structure that favored the very wealthiest Americans and caused the middle class and working people to struggle every single day. The destruction of the environment, you know, eliminating regulation of companies that were polluting and doing extraordinary damage to the environment.”

“I can promise you this: this president will never use Ronald Reagan as an example for change.”

That said, Edwards has been overly generous with Reagan in the past. But at least it was to argue that Bush was (even) worse.

Note: I don't know what the heck is going about this quote, which appears in the linked CBS item.

And sad to say, in today's ratings driven infotainment "news" cycle, that is what gets the headlines. "Obama is black! Hillary's a girl!", &c. &c.

Perhaps John, the only progressive-ish front-runner, could get a blonde relative to be kidnapped for potential shark fodder. That'd grab the MSM where they live.

The more John Edwards talks like this, the more that I realized that I, a grown man of 29, am going to sob like a baby when he doesn't get the nomination.

...work yer ass off, talk to your friends, co-religionists, total strangers in lines at grocery stores, banks, the movies, bus stops and such other sites as you find yerself in, buy, wear, pin, post in the yard, stick to every visible surface and otherwise display Edwards bling, and send such remaining funds as might be troubling your pocket to the campaign, and win him the goddamn nomination!

Dammit.

Problem then solved. Because, as we have to keep reminding everybody, Edwards is the only Democratic candidate who beats every Republican in every state where polling has been done.

See? Easy. Tears of joy rather than bitterness and no lamentations of remorse. Now get bizzy. :)

I told some folks that I don't want to work tomorrow evening because I'm either going to be in a very good mood (if Edwards is winning) or an absolutely terrible mood (if he's losing.)

And I'm absolutely livid at the union movement right now--endorsing against their own interests because they want to be on the "winning" side.

Since Bible verse is so in vogue, I think this one is well worth remembering: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

such were the levels of his Shrill and Anger at this slaughter of the union's more recent leadership and some decisions they've made. i left you a comment, i hope you understand that i agree with your post but just wanted to beg for a droplet of mercy for the Little People.

seriously, read it and weep that god is righteous, or something. this one will prove to be a keeper, ian.
