Is this supposed to be news? If it is it should have been in the comic section. This is no surprise.

Either this man is an IDIOT or he is PAID to say this
UNEMPLOYMENT IS 8.3 OR HIGHER.
He doled out tax dollars to failing industries (THAT SUPPORT HIM) to prop them up.

“president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees”

I’d imagine that while the leadership might endorse Obama, a lot of the unemployed members here in the northeast will be voting for “anyone but Obama”. We’ve shed a lot of dead wood in government jobs in the past few years, and I’d imagine they have no marketable skills. Like the auto workers unions, they will be shrinking in size for a while.

“Gerald W. McEntee, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.”

I know these union pigs well, especially the so-called “leadership.”

They sit on the their butts and don’t do a minute of work. When the bar opens at 7 am, they’re fighting for barstools to set their fat asses. They sit there all day drinking beers and shots until momma comes to get them at 5pm for dinner. This allows them to reaquaint themselves to their kids.

Most times, we needed to carry these slobs to the vehicle because they forgot how to walk. They’re all a waste of human flesh.

These union, booze-sucking hounds die in their 40s or early 50s.

About half the union guys hate these CSers. The other half were too stupid to bother with.
