As auto blog Jalopnik reports, the plant recently held a ceremony to welcome back the new workers to begin production of the Ecotec engines. Attending the ceremony were three local Republican legislators, Sens. Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander, and Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Ironically, all three of these lawmakers opposed the plans to save General Motors and other U.S. auto companies. This didn’t stop Corker from taking credit for the federal rescue, anyway. At the event he claimed he “contributed to strengthening the auto industry in this country.” Jalopnik reports that “irony of the Republican lawmakers’ presence wasn’t lost on the workers who attended the ceremony; they booed Tennessee Republican Bob Corker”:

Think Progress » Corker Booed By Workers At GM Plant Ceremony, Takes Credit For Saving Industry That He Opposed Saving

This joker wanted to reduce their salaries to foreign company worker salaries that have factories in his state. Now he wants to take credit...unreal!

Republicans have no shame. Especially those in the Senate.

It's time for blue collar workers to stop lapping up the utter bullsnot being fed to them by the likes of Rush Limburger and Faux News, to look over their shoulders, and notice that it is actually the Republicans who are the ones gleefully lined up to rump-roast them.

Geez..I guess a few Tennesseans do have some common sense in a region that's definitely short of it relative to politics.

But then..these folks will probably get mad about abortion or some meaningless gun issue and vote for these three idiots again. SMH

Yep.

They may boo now, but when election time comes around there will be some outrage about guns or abortion or the gays or the Mexicans and they'll vote these same people back into office.
