How the Steel Workers made Bain Capital THE issue


Laid Off Steelworker in Anti-Romney Ad Says He Is Not Voting for Obama

The United Steelworkers' initial accusations regarding the GS Technologies plant closing have proven explosive enough to potentially derail Romney’s presidential bid. Their effectiveness also suggests labor's new strategy of doing its own political actions separate from the Democratic Party is starting to pay off.

A Matter of Trust: Why Don't Democratic Leaders Believe in Democracy?

(from )

an open letter to President Barack Obama
from his Primary Challenger, Aldous C. Tyler

Greetings, Mr. President,

When I consider where this nation was four years ago, I can’t help but shake my head and smile at how things have actually turned out. At this point back then, the only real question in Presidential politics seemed to be who would get the Republican nomination for President to run against Hillary Clinton, who was assumed to be predestined for the Democratic nomination. Those of us who even knew of you, sir, had no real hope of getting you past the Clinton election machine, it seemed.

This confirms our opinion that he has no intention of doing anything for ordinary Americans. Read more about Jim Messina's fabulism

The big fight in Ohio is the repeal of SB5, and Obama has been conspicuous by his absence on that. I am guessing that Ohio voters have noticed. Read more about Obama's reelection strategery

Your violent kleptocracy in action

From Booman of all people:

When I think of an ideal Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, the commander of U.S. troops in Iraq during the Abu Ghraib scandal doesn't immediately leap to mind. But it looks like that is who DSCC Chairwoman Patty Murray has recruited to run for the open Senate seat in Texas.
