31. No, you don't say "not to fight"
Edited on Fri Oct-29-04 10:24 AM by louis c
but leave it someone else.

Politics is not a risk averse business, it takes bold, quick initiatives.

Sometimes, one can get burnt.

But this election is not for the faint of heart.

Let me give you another example. I belong to the Greater Boston Labor Council, AFL-CIO. It has over 100 locals in the area.

When the Boston Police threatened the convention, we supported them. However, I spoke to their President, Tommy Nee, and got a promise that if we supported him, he would not embarrass us by endorsing Bush.

The Boston Police never endorsed a Democrat for President.

He promised that he would at least make no endorsement, thereby taking an arrow out of Bush's quiver.

Last week they did better than that, they endorsed Kerry.

We are fighting to liberate America every day, in every way that is legal. We can not, and will not leave a stone unturned.

If Karl Rove wants to play rough, we here at the Mass AFL-CIO say Bring It On.
