Hey Dad, How do You Like This? Iacocca Endorses Kerry
Lee Iacocca, former chairman of the Chrysler Corporation, endorsed John Kerry for President today. In 2000, Iacocca endorsed George Bush, and campaigned actively for Bush, appearing in television ads and GOTV calls focused on the need to protect jobs in Michigan. Iacocca also campaigned for Ronald Reagan in 1980 and 1984.
So today I’m joining the Kerry team...I’m doing this not as a Democrat or Republican, but as an American, simply." - Lee Iacocca, June 24, 2004
Iacocca realizes sometime the government can help save jobs. This election will be a referendum on whether Bush has lifted a finger to help the middle class. I firmly believe voters will rejected the radical ideological values of this administration in favor of the mainstream values of John Kerry.
FYI, please just remember the government bailout Iacocca engineered was an anthemia to conservatives at the time.
