Shelley Brannon, 62, can sum up the Obama presidency with three words. 
Well, three words and an exclamation.

“He screwed us,” said Brannon, a coal miner from Wise County, Va., as he 
sat outside a rally for the United Mine Workers of America. “Man, he 
screwed us.”

He shook his head under a camouflage hat that matched his camouflage 
UMWA T-shirt, and he described his fantasy of dumping nuclear waste in 
the yards of environmentalists, “if they think coal’s so bad.” He mulled 
over the mistake he says the UMWA made in 2008, when it endorsed Barack 
Obama over Hillary Rodham Clinton. Then he explained why he would 
probably be voting for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the next 
Democratic primary.
