I hope he pledged fidelity to ACORN, because Obama's going to need them to stuff the ballot boxes and collect names from headstones again this election.
As far as the Republicans obstructing his agenda, Obama may not know this because of how out-of-touch he is with Americans, but the majority of Americans don't want the communist agenda either.
That's why only 29% ofÂ Americans say the country is heading in the right direction.
From the article:
President Obama reminded an audience of labor union officials Monday that he has always fought for their interests and emphasized this point by attacking the GOP and right-to-work states.
â€œI made a promise Iâ€™d always tell you where I stood, Iâ€™d always tell you what I thought, what I believed in, and most importantly, Iâ€™d wake up every single day working as hard as I know how â€” to make your lives a little better,â€ the president said at the AFL-CIOâ€™sBuilding and Construction Trades Department Legislative Conference [try fitting all of that on a business card].
And it makes sense that President Obama would take the time to out of his busy not-campaign schedule to remind union leaders that heâ€™s on their side. After all, his 2008 presidential campaign relied heavily on the unionâ€™s â€œget out the voteâ€ efforts and financial backing; heâ€™ll need all their help he can get in 2012.
â€œAnd for all that weâ€™ve gone through over the last three-and-a-half, four years, I have kept that promise,â€ he continued. â€œAnd Iâ€™m still thinking about you, and I still believe in you. And if you join me, weâ€™ll remind the world why it is that America is the greatest nation on Earth,â€ President Obama added.
However, the presidentâ€™s remarks quickly turned from high-minded musings on Americaâ€™s greatness to sharp criticisms of Republicans for â€œobstructing his agenda,â€ as Susan Crabtree of the Washington Timesputs it.
