Obama: We Need Someone Who Won’t “Choke” on the Word “Union”


Targets both rivals in remarks to the Building Trades Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. saying it’s time there was a president and a Democratic nominee who stood up for labor.

Goes hard after Bush administration, McCain for “offering more of the same.”

“It’s not just that this administration hasn’t been fighting for you; they’ve actually tried to stop you from fighting for yourselves. This is the most anti-labor administration in our memory. They don’t believe in unions.”
