Latest Democrat Attack: Obama’s Union Thugs Blaming Romney for Black Lung Deaths

Posted by on Aug 14, 2012 at 7:14 am

It’s all death, all the time with these people. A week after being accused of murder with the horrific ad the Democrats still don’t take responsibility for, here come Obama’s union thugs to accuse Mitt Romney of mass murder. They just don’t learn, do they?

Workers’ Voice is also launching a mailer to 100,000 homes in Ohio that connects Romney to deaths from black lung disease. It features a quote from AFL-CIO Chairman Richard Trumka describing his father’s death from the disease, which he says is evidence for “why we can’t afford people like Mitt Romney who are putting corporate profits before worker health and safety.”

That’s Obama economic adviser Richard Trumka, just in case they pretend they don’t know who the guy is. But remember, they have nothing to do with each other.

It attempts to make the connection between the Ryan budget and cuts to protections for miners, slams Romney for taking millions from the oil, gas and coal industries, and highlights Bain Capital’s business practices that it says hurt employees to make money.

The mailer comes out as Romney stumps in Ohio and is expected to focus particularly on the coal industry, aiming to attack Obama for out-of-control regulations that cost miners jobs, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

While it could focus voters’ attention on the Democratic arguments on coal, the mailer could also cause a bit of a headache for Obama. A recent ad launched by a pro-Obama super PAC that tied Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital to the death of the wife of a steelworker laid off due to Bain restructuring of the worker’s company brought ire from Republicans, with the Romney campaign calling it “misleading” and asking Obama to condemn it.

Aw, poor Obama. It could cause a bit of a headache. Well, he can avoid the headache if he tells his surrogates to knock it off. But he’s the mastermind behind this thuggery, so that’s pretty much pointless.
