    And I think they were the ones telling the truth. That's why we have free speech. That's also why I think we can safely put you down as an opponent of same.

    It wasn't the truth it was lies meant to spread fear

    What I find to be "desperate and pathetic" is the pro-union reaction to this election. The UAW lost, fair and square, because they failed to make a case that unionization would benefit these particular workers.

    Your point? It didn't come up while he was Governor of New York, do you think he'd have supported public employee unions then? Dream on.

    Exactly how was Bob Corker going to "spread fear" amongst VW workers? The company was in favor of the union, what was Corker going to do?

    I don't understand your spin on this. FDR's position on public employee unions was unambiguous. (So was George Meany's.)
