Everything Old Is New Again

One of the reasons I hang out at Eschaton is that the regulars are very generous about posting links to blog posts and new articles they think some of us might miss. Thanks to Stuckinlodi no more, that's how I got to this news article:
Mitt Romney is hoping business owners will "make it very clear" to their employees what their political views are and how the November election results could impact their jobs.
At least that's what he told about 100,000 members of the National Federation of Independent Businesses during a Wednesday tele-townhall. ...
"I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections," the Republican presidential nominee said. "And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope you pass those along to your employees." [Emphasis added]
He's not even pretending anymore. Nor is he bothering with code words. He's just telling folks that the little people who work for employers need to be clear on what's best for business because their crummy little jobs may depend on it. Not much veil on that threat, eh?
Nice of Mitt to make our decisions for us, don't you think?
