Teamsters president calls on Obama to 'fight harder'

Hoffa said that although he would like Obama to push harder against the Republican agenda, the Teamsters would support him in the 2012 presidential election.

"Where are we going to go? Support Rick Perry? You look at the dynamics of this, there's really not a real choice," said Hoffa.

Hoffa called on Obama to "draw a line in the sand" and rally the Democratic base.
