Yesterday, I was shocked and amazed at the email I received in my inbox from Senator Obama. It called for everyone to take the day off for Obama. This is delivering a serious financial blow to businesses all over America. It is clear that Obama is NOT thinking of America our current financial crisis but instead is thinking only of himself. It’s clear I am not the only one who thinks this way, see comments from Greta Van Susteren. Following her comments is the actual email message I received (minus the video because Greta covers that).
Party Time? I don’t think so…Senator Obama gives Senator McCain a GIANT GIFT!!
by Greta Van Susteren
Are you kidding? telling people to “take the day off” when our economy is in the tank? That’s not a good idea…PRODUCTION is needed! This is not party time, it is work time!!
Yikes! How could Senator Obama make this blunder 7 days before the election?
And what do all the small business people think about this? Can they afford to do this? have their employees take off? That could ruin a small business – if not financially, their good will will be destroyed when their plumbers don’t show up to fix plumbing for a client as promised because their employees “took the day off” ….
And there may be some very unhappy parents paying for college to the tune of $40,000 or more …and the maybe next President is telling their kids to skip class? (or to put it another way “take the day off?”)
If I were Senator Obama, I would pull this ad…FAST!
Would you not think it smarter to emphasize going to work, using absentee ballots, getting others to use absentee ballots, early voting, volunteering AFTER work, or AFTER school or on the weekend?
