http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/05/obama-labor-day-speech_n_949536.htmlObama's speech before the workers in Detroit did not include the words debt or deficit, nor did it include admonitions that people ought to "eat their peas."
Instead, the president stood up for the besieged labor, quoting Harry Truman from a Labor Day speech 63 years earlier, which said, "the gains of labor were not accomplished at the expense of the rest of the nation. Labor’s gains contributed to the nation’s general prosperity."
Obama, accustomed to speaking about the need for "shared sacrifice," spoke instead on Monday about shared prosperity.
