    Right, because it would have been best to leave an empty seat which would make the dept. nonfunctional. Got it!

    Corker was a bit player and a convenient excuse for the UAW's, and Obama's, defeat. Speaking of O whom, according to you, had nothing to do with anything, Reuters reported:

    "Obama said everyone was in favor of the UAW representing Volkswagen except for local politicians who "are more concerned about German shareholders than American workers," according to a Democratic aide who attended the meeting with Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives.

    Corker was no bit player. That is the point. He, along with other Republicans had a hand in trying to influence votes. Also, 'O' speaking out about the wrong that was done doesn't equate to doing the wrong.

    Corker was a bit player and a lame excuse, although I must concede that the workers probably weren't paying any attention to O either.

    your right the workers paid 0 attention to either person. the main reason that was given is that the workers saw what happened to the detroit big 3 under the UAW. they didnt' want
    the same thing happening to their own plant. they like their jobs and VW pays them well.

    the only reason that corker is even mentioned is that fact that liberals need something to blame other than the failure of the UAW to show it can build strong unions and strong companies.

    Nobody's buying that. Constant repetition isn't making the sale. Corker is the lamest of lame excuses.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
