The Detroit Bailout

E.J. Dionne:
There is a paradox at the heart of the proposed bailout of the auto industry. The rescue would have no chance of passing without the muscle of the Big Three’s unionized work force. Yet you can’t turn around without hearing someone trash autoworkers for the terrible crime of trying to earn a decent living.

I really don't understand how Obama's wanting to "spread the wealth around" was so terrible, yet this kind of attitude is never called out for what it is: class warfare, in its purest form. And please don't give me that "they make $70 an hour!" bullshit.
