Memo from the Boss: Vote for Romney

The NYT catches up to story reported long ago in other outlets about heads of companies directing their employees to vote for Romney.  Gosh, I wrote about this in my book about Upton Sinclair's fabled 1934 campaign, so it's hardly unprecedented, but still quite alarming--and in this case, the candidate himself has encouraged this.
Mr. Romney has himself urged business owners to appeal to their employees. In a conference call in June organized by the National Federation of Independent Business, he said, “I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections.”
And don't miss this new column by Joe Nocera on Romney, Nu-Skin, Mormons and the "ties that bind."

Really.......and the union thugs have never done anything like this in every election? I'm sure this report is overexaggerated to prevent the union thugs from being noticed in their usual routine. And did we forget about the black panther?
