DENNIS KUCINICH explains what it means to “Buy American:”

“This is about our children and grandchildren,” he said. “We have to get the word out – ‘Buy American.’ This is a matter of our allegiance to our own communities, our belief in each other, our commitment to each other.”

While Ohio has about 16,000 workers building Honda automobiles, engines and transmissions, Kucinich later said he defined “American” as being made by a union. The UAW has failed in its effort to organize the Honda plants.

So if you’re an autoworker who isn’t a UAW member, I guess you’re not American. I hope he’s not questioning your patriotism. . . .

UPDATE: Reader Richard Zeien emails:

“The UAW has failed in its effort to organize the Honda plants.”

Hmmmm, the Honda plants aren’t in danger of closing. Coincidence?

I think not.
