I’m sorry Jay, but you’re going to have to do better than this.
Here’s what Obama said during the campaign.
If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain, when I’m in the White House, I’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I’ll walkk on the picket line with you as president of the United States of American.
Dodging a question today about President Obama’s willingness to live up to his promise by joining a picket line such as the one in Wisconsin being led by state workers, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney offered up this pre-packaged one-liner.
And I would just say that whatever shoes he’s wearing, he is always standing with America’s working men and women, and America’s middle class.
Ehhhhh boy. Maybe it’s because Jay is rusty because he never had to write any material for Biden, who provided endless amusement effortlessly.
