President Obama promised us he was: "Gonna Lay down those shufflin' shoes..."

On Nov. 3, 2007, Barack Obama -- as a candidate for president--promised a crowd in Spartanburg, S.C., that he would watch out for unions and protect their collective bargaining rights.

Obama said:
"If American workers are being denied their right to organize when I'm in the White House, I will put on a comfortable pair of shoes and I will walk on that picket line with you as president of the United States,” 

Time to take off those golf shoes, Mr. President.  No more pussyfooting. 

You're expected in Madison next weekend.



A promise is a promise.

About Me

My photo
Of the biblical allotment of three score and ten I have lived only three of them more than a bicycle ride from one of the Great Lakes. I grew up ten blocks from Lake Erie in the (once Irish/Italian ghetto, now newly-hip) "Near West Side" of Cleveland. I can still cycle to the Milwaukee lakefront in an hour and a half; but, a round-trip has always been more than I would (noror ever did) attempt. -0- I'm a "...somewhat combative pacifist and fairly cooperative anarchist," after the example of Grace Paley (1922-2007). -0- I'm always cheerful when I pay my taxes (having refused--when necessary--to pay that portion of them dedicated to war). -0- And I always, always vote.
