Rod Watson's Sept. 6 column about how the word "union" won't be heard from President Obama and the Democrats was right on! He only missed it by a one-time mention that we "should not be afraid of unions."
What a shame! How can anyone talk about the middle class without mentioning unions? Why are our so-called "political friends" so ashamed to tell the voters that unions are needed? There is so much proof that when we had strong unions, we had a strong middle class.
I will cast my vote for Obama, even though he did not say what I wanted to hear, only because the "other guy" and his party will destroy unions altogether.
