Is Obama appointee the link between the Obama campaign and the Obama SuperPAC?
(Page 3 of 7)
In other words, if in fact that is Joe Soptic appearing in that 2008 Steelworkers video with Leo Gerard, it is more than conceivable that Gerard knew as far back as 2008 exactly who Joe Soptic was.
So when PrioritiesUSA — headed by ex-deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton — was looking to smear Mitt Romney, somehow, mysteriously, Burton learns of Joe Soptic. Who seems to have appeared in a 2008 Steelworkers video with none other than — Leo Gerard.
The same Leo Gerard who is both the president of the USW — and a card-carrying presidential appointee of the Obama Administration to the Obama Administration’s Advisory Committee on Trade Policy and Negotiations.
Thus — I turned to the United Steelworkers union and asked the question. Providing them with the YouTube link to their own video, I inquired as to whether that was in fact Joe Soptic in their 2008 video.
And what do you think was the response?
Silence. Silencio! Nobody home at the USW except the chickens.
And by the way, is there more to Leo Gerard than this?
Is there more to the story of Bain Capital and GST — the plant at which Joe Soptic worked?
Let’s compare two very interesting stories about GST.
Here’s the first, a reprint from the United Steelworkers about something that mysteriously never seems to get mentioned by the media in all their worship of the Soptic attack on Mitt Romney and Bain Capital.
You see, there was a strike at GST — in 1997. By the United Steelworkers. A strike in which Joe Soptic presumably participated. When it was settled, the USW put out the press release linked above, and it is printed here in its entirety:
KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 13 /PRNewswire/ — Members of Local Union 13 of the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) overwhelmingly approved a new 66-month contract with GST Steel Thursday (June 12), ending a strike that began on April 1. The vote was 488-81.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
