If you want to know why I’m going to vote for John Edwards instead of choosing Tweedledee (Clinton) or Tweedledum (Obama), this is all you really need:
HENDERSON, NEV. — John Edwards ripped Barack Obama for praising the way Ronald Reagan brought about change when he was President of the United States.
â€œWhen you think about what Ronald Reagan did to the American people, to the middle class to the working people,â€ said Edwards.
â€œHe was openly â€“ openly â€“ intolerant of unions and the right to organize. He openly fought against the union and the organized labor movement in this country. He openly did extraordinary damage to the middle class and working people, created a tax structure that favored the very wealthiest Americans and caused the middle class and working people to struggle every single day. The destruction of the environment, you know, eliminating regulation of companies that were polluting and doing extraordinary damage to the environment.â€
â€œI can promise you this: this president will never use Ronald Reagan as an example for change.â€
