In response to Chuk Lawshe: Democrats elected a community planner (“Shame on Democrats,” Reader Input, Oct. 3)?
Well, they also elected an ice cream scooper at Baskin Robbins, a deli counter clerk, a gift shop sales clerk. All of these were in Hawaii. A construction worker in Manhattan while he went to Columbia.
Funny you make “community organizer” sound like a dirty word, since he helped people in Chicago get housing, etc. He did work as a lawyer after that and then as a Constitutional scholar before running for the U.S. Senate. He was paid for all of these jobs which pretty much sounds like “real jobs,” unless you have a different definition.
No, Obama did not serve in the military, but neither did Romney. Obama was too young for Vietnam and Romney had a missionary deferment and worked in Paris. FDR also did not serve in the military, and look how that worked out. What is a voter to do?
