He was a Governor, wasn't he? Governors have policies and record, don't they?
And I believe "not giving specifics" is also a legitimate form of criticism of policy.
Whatever it is you think about it?
Not much of a foreign policy record to go by when you are a governor.
The Carter/Obama comparisons are all over the place; from paid ads to stump speeches by Ryan and Romney as well as their surrogates on TV.
As for my opinion on the labor strike I say this;
I would be all for strict limitations on what public unions can negotiate AS LONG as legislation is passed to curtail the overwhelming influence of corporate America on the political system as well.
I do not know what the issues are that the union and city are haggling over. Is it about the deplorable working/learning conditions in many of the urban schools that, in some cases, were built during the New Deal? Is the city trying to force the teachers to work longer hours with little compensation?
Explain to me what the issues are and I can give my opinion.
