The Gazette Journal endorsed Obama for the Democratic caucuses saying he "demonstrates the courage to stand his ground where necessary, willing for instance, to salute both President John Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan as agents of change in times when the country needed change."While I've realized for months now that John Edwards gets it, it's only recently becoming clear that I have to work a lot harder to make sure Barack Obama doesn't win. We can't let this Reagan mythology continue, it's just not good for the country. America would be a far better place if Ronald Reagan was never its president.
Edwards got this crowd of between 200 and 300 people to rise to its feet by criticizing Obama. Edwards said Reagan "openly fought against the union and the organized labor movement in this country." Edwards said Reagan did "extraordinary
damage to the middle class and working people. . . . Extraordinary damage to the environment."
Edwards closed the attack by saying: "I can promise you this: This president will never use Ronald Reagan as an example for change."
