Rust Belt autoworkers let loose on Romney, Obama

DEARBORN, Michigan (CNN) - Steve Bengelsvorf and Terry Flynn are chatting over beers on a hot, humid Wednesday night at Bamboozles, a Dearborn, Michigan, bar and restaurant, and a common pit stop for nearby factory workers.

Both these clean-cut men sitting at the bar in polo-style shirts have a lot in common. They work at the nearby Severstal steel company. They're nearing retirement. And they both have strong opinions about who the next president should be.

    "So throwing $80 billion of new national debt to bail out irresponsible Fortune 500 companies in the middle of a recession should somehow qualify as a legitimate vote buy?!?! This was either rookie mismanagement or corrupt payback for UAW support in the 2008 election."

    Yawn! Waaaaaah...workers shouldn't have any rights....they should just take what they're given and be thankful that massa done gived them a job and enough paycheck to feed themselves and die broke!!!! DERPA DERP DERP!!!!
