In one of the most pivotal elections leading up the the November general election, Obama decided to sit this one out by just tweeting his support instead of boots on the ground. Even though this was public unions that you hear the outcry from and not private sector unions, they are still unions that Obama stressed he would defend and be there for the fight. But due to political expediency, showing up for a possible losing effort wasn’t something that Obama wanted on his suit or face before September.
Obama was about “Hope and Change.” He was supposed to be the different politician that understood the middle class and was for the blue collar worker. He campaigned as a Washington outside even though he campaigned to be one as a US Senator. So this was change that the democrats could believe in yes? Well give me a new president with new ideas and the bold spine to stick up for what he believes in.
