    Despite appearing in a controversial ad for the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA, denouncing Romney's role in the GS Technologies plant closing, Box, a lifelong Democrat, says he won’t be voting for the first time since 1971 because he has lost faith in politicians.

    “I could really care less about Obama," says Box. "I think Obama is a jerk, a pantywaist, a lightweight, a blowhard. He hasn't done a goddamn thing that he said he would do. When he had a Democratic Senate and Democratic Congress, he didn't do a damn thing. He doesn't have the guts to say what’s on his mind.”

    Box’s refusal to vote for Obama shows the challenges that organized labor faces in convincing its members to vote for Democrats. Many union members like Box feel the party hasn’t pushed hard enough for jobs bills or labor law reform while making sure to pass trade pacts, like the South Korea Free Trade Agreement, which the AFL-CIO and the United Steelworkers opposed.

    Not surprising because Bain was good to GS Technologies, put $100 million into the firm, and kept them alive for 8 years longer than if Bain had not invested. Following thread shows the Obama ad, the complete lies proving the complete opposite of what the ad stated.

    The Guy is right in many ways, and I'm with him by God, But I do have hope that during his next term, he uses the lessons he should have learned from the first term that he doesn't get anywhere by playing nice with the Party of No.

    As this hard nosed steel worker hinted, Obama's being pansy assed with these republican liars and skeemers to bring down him down, flat out doesn't work. When they lie Dems need to say so in no uncertain terms and no backing down. When they skeem and filibuster to block progress, the damn dems need to give the repubs hell over it and don't let up,

    Dems need to do more just like Obama's Newest Add with Romney singing the National Anthem while phrases parade the screen telling about all the Anti American Worker actions taken by BAIN during Romney's tenure as CEO and Board member. Give the out of touch Romney hell, no apologies !!!


    REPUBLICANS ARE THE PRIMARY REASON OUR ECONOMY DIDN'T MOVE FORWARD OVER THE LAST 3 YEARS, BECAUSE THEY WERE MORE INTERESTED IN BRINGING DOWN OBAMA THAN WORKING FOR THE CITIZENS GOOD.


    WHERE WERE ALL THE REPUB JOB INITIATIVES AND BILLS ??

    WHERE'S ALL THE JOBS FROM THOSE TAX BREAKS FOR THE JOB

    CREATORS ??


    As disgusted with Obama as I am over his lack of spine, a vot for him is a hell of a lot better than throwing it away to a BAIN Capitolist Corp whose bottom line under Romney's direction was far more important to him than American Jobs. Its just business is no excuse, if his goals as a man of principle were where they should be as a public servant, those jobs wouldn't have gone overseas, at least not under his watch.

    “I could really care less about Obama," says Box. "I think Obama is a jerk, a pantywaist, a lightweight, a blowhard."

    Translation: Obama is BLACK.
