Late to the Game Barack Obama Rips Right-to-Work Legislation in Michigan at Fiscal Cliff Campaign Stop Daimler Detroit Diesel Plant
Barack Obama just cannot stop campaigning. Leadership be damned, it’s all about politics, division and lies.
Yesterday, during a post-election, fiscal cliff campaign stop at a Daimler Detroit Diesel Plant in Michigan, President Barack Obama railed against the Right-to-Work legislation that was passed by both legislative houses. Why so serious, Barack? You appear to be a little late to the game and attempting to pretend like you care about this issue after the fact. Both legislative houses in Michigan passed right to work bills last week. It would seem that if this was such an important issue to Obama that he would have been slamming it last week, not now. You are a little too late Barack as Michigan is about to become the 24th right-to-work state in the US.
Obama stated, “These so called right-to-work laws, they don’t have to do with economics, they have to do with politics.” Which can explain why he interjected himself in the state issue. If its about politics, Obama cannot be far behind. Hmm, and I thought liberal and democrats were about choice?
In his speech on Monday, Obama described the proposed changes in Michigan as being part of a “race to the bottom” that won’t help the economy.
“What we shouldn’t be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” Obama told a small crowd at the plant. “We don’t want a race to the bottom. We want a race to the top.”
Obama’s reelection likely affords him the ability to work harder for labor on some issues.
At the same time, the upheaval in Michigan allows Obama to earn good will with labor, which might help if unions feel

One would think that Obama had more important things on his plate like the Middle East on fire, the US economy in shambles and millions upon million of Americans out of work.
