The innings drag on as we wait for a conscientious umpire somewhere to make an interference call on the team in the red uniforms:
Soft Tyrannies of the Week
Obama and Boeing | WSJ Online:
Did you hear what President Obama said about the National Labor Relations Board’s complaint against Boeing Co.? We didn’t either.
Mr. Obama has been touting his plan to double the country’s export growth by 2015, thereby creating two million new jobs. Now one of the country’s foremost exporters is under assault for seeking a lower-cost venue for manufacturing to stay globally competitive, and the President has had nothing to say.
