Remember why the Bush administration attacked triple-amputee veteran Max Cleland as a traitor? Sen. Cleland was defending the labor rights and civil service protections of federal workers by voting against the President’s version of the Homeland Security Bill. In response, Rove, Reed and thugs had no problem with running commercials putting Osama bin Laden’s face beside Sen. Cleland’s. Sen. Kerry was the only major Democrat taking the Republican’s to task for this outrage.
Labor needs a candidate with the stature like Sen. Kerry on national security who will not allow the Republican’s to abuse “patriotism” to destroy worker’s rights.
