McCain visits Lordstown, Ohio auto plant and the workers basically boycott the event.

Why?

“Management invited him,” said Tim Niles, a worker in the plant. “It had nothing to do with us. We’re with Obama.”

It’s one thing to get the endorsement of the UAW, but it’s a whole other thing to hear it right from the lips of these mostly-white, working class Ohio guys.

They actually get it this time.

Greg George, another white worker at the plant told a reporter for the Financial Times, “We’re a working-class factory, McCain calls himself a moderate, but his party has been a disaster for working people over the past eight years.”

It looks like McCain’s regular-guy, straight-talk strategy isn’t going work this time.

 
  • Going to Lordstown to talk free trade is like blasting Vanilla Ice while cruising through South Central.
