  •  (D) Campaign Against Outsourcing? (2+ / 0-)

    It's your standard scare mongering about brown people, as if this district hasn't lost its manufacturing base to outsourcing, and as if the reason no one has good jobs is that undocumented workers have taken their assembly line jobs.

    Yet another reason to push hard for a great showing in this district -- to provide further proof that demonizing brown people isn't just horrific long-term politics (few would deny that with the rapid growth of the Latino vote), but also bad short-term politics as well.

    I agree. If the Democrat, Weirauch, ran counter ads slamming Republicans for giving outsourcers advantages and domestic workers disadvantages (like GATT/WTO/NAFTA/..., expensive employer insurance, outsourcing credits, favoring management over labor, etc), I'd be really impressed.

    Why don't they do that? I guess those Democrats would have to actually represent labor, instead of just not lying like dogs while abusing it the way Republicans do.
