Obama to Rally Detroit Unions on Labor Day

President Obama will be hobknobbing with socialist labor leaders Richard Trumka and Bob King, in Detroit on Labor Day.


From The Detroit News

President Barack Obama will visit Detroit on Labor Day for the annual celebration of workers, the White House said today.

Obama will be joined by national AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka, United Auto Workers President Bob King, Teamsters President James P. Hoffa and Service Employees International President Mary Kay Henry, officials said.

Because of security concerns, Obama isn’t expected to march in the annual Detroit Labor Day parade, but will address union members afterward…

White House spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed the president’s planned trip…

Hoffa said unions are eager to support Obama, who is to announce a new jobs effort after Labor Day.

“We’re frustrated – like he is frustrated,” Hoffa said, complaining that Republicans in Congress have blocked much of Obama’s agenda.

Hoffa called for more infrastructure spending to get people back to work, and said union members would work to get the “crazies” — identified by Hoffa as some Republicans — voted out of Congress.

The Labor Day rally in Detroit will help Obama “rally his base,” Hoffa said.

Labor unions made Detroit a blighted city.

Obama is rapidly turning the US into a blighted country.

How appropriate that Obama should stand shoulder to shoulder with his fellow lords of destruction.

    As he loses support amongst the American people. Obama of course, will gravitate to his base. The unions are his greatest supporters. What do you expect the little Communist who would be king to do?

    There is no doubt that of the Communist agenda which is the destruction of free markets etc. I will not waste time going over what you already know. Obama, a graduate of the Midwest Academy, will be true to his roots.

    I am always amazed at the comments from people that do not recognize unions as the backbone of the middle class. These people have a perception that screams it’s all about me forget the rest. If it were not for President OBAMA the American auto workers would have been done in by the G.O.P. and the true leaders of the G.O.P. the TEA PARTY. I can not wait to see the G.O.P. and the Tea Party booted out of office when there time is up, real Americans will remember the mess they made.

      Amen to that Robert!The Unions did not cause the finacial mess the country is in. Any lucid thinking person knows the real cause was insatiable Greed by wall street and the banks. Stop using the unions of this country as a scapegoat!!!!
