Say What Now of the Day

In June, former steelworker and lifelong Democrat Donnie Box starred in this controversial pro-Obama ad, by Super PAC Priorities USA, that criticized Mitt Romney and his time at Bain Capital --  they "shut down entire livelihoods."

Now, just one month later, Box has some harsh words for Obama, as quoted in In These Times:

I think Obama is a jerk, a pantywaist, a lightweight, a blowhard. He hasn't done a goddamn thing that he said he would do. When he had a Democratic Senate and Democratic Congress, he didn't do a damn thing. He doesn't have the guts to say what's on his mind.

Box remains a Romney critic, but made clear that he considers him the lesser of two evils when it comes time to vote:

We didn't know who the hell Mitt Romney was when all that stuff started. It wasn't until later we found out who Romney was. We just knew he was just another guy with money. It wasn't until his boys came and started gutting the place that we found out he was an a**hole.

Meanwhile, according to the Atlantic, "[t]he ad's been in pretty high circulation, part of a $7 million ad campaign in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, one that Priorities USA has said is partially responsible for hurting Romney's polling in swing states."
