    Again my point.
    The "office" is the President.
    No respect for the President is the same as no respect for either ... as seen by others.
    Look at the union issue ... no respect for the leader, so no respect for the union.
    ( don't get me wrong on that, I never agreed with having an ex-labor lawyer as the President of our union )

    I never agreed to wage & pension concessions top that off with bad leadership, hence my disgruntlement.

    Agree ... or disagree ... we had respect for the President and the office.
    We need massive political change in this country ... and that change needs to eliminate the corporate influence in politics.
    He is your president. The attacks daily on him would never have been thought of years ago. You are correct 100%. Obama is a brilliant demonizing liar..promised us the world and delivered nothing. That is when respect for him ended. I never had a problem with any democrat president. I was once a democrat. I actually voted for Carter. Carter was the first president to let the Iranians crap on a president. But Carter had the best interest of the country in mind tho he was a total failure looking back.

    I respected Bill and Hillary Clinton even today. I do have no respect for Obama. I do hate Obama. I do believe he has succeeded in fundamentally changing the United States of America. I and many others do not trust him. You want something from him? You will get nothing from him but hard times

    Union wage gains only happen when near full employment exists not when millions are out of work or dropped out of the job market. Union power will never return untill we get a president who can put the masses back to good middle-class paying jobs not part time work where people are forced to work at McDonald's or Burger King.

    Bush bashing was rampant...that was okay with the demonizing left like yourself. Hoffa bashing was okay with the demonizing left like yourself. Zollars bashing was okay. You are just a typical left wing demonizer. No way you are the typical teamster. You are the worst

    Pointing it out in a PM would have shown class. Pointing it out on the open forum in the manner you chose?....Well, leave the "C and L" off the word class and what does that leave you with? Try a PM next time.
