Obama: Times are tough "but we're tougher"..."We have more than one million unemployed construction workers ready to get dirty... ..video....

Obama's called for an end to "Washington games" and for Congressional Republicans to support initiatives to promote job creation benefiting the middle class..... Speaking to a Labor Day rally in Detroit, a city he said had been "to heck and back," Mr. Obama challenged Congressional Republicans to put the country ahead of party.

He also chided anti-labor and anti-union forces who, he said, "had their sights trained on you."

In a preview of his speech Thursday to a joint session of Congress, Mr. Obama proposed boosting construction and infrastructure projects - and included some finger-wagging at critics...."We have more than one million unemployed construction workers ready to get dirty...

Jimmy Hoffa Jr. did a lot of blustering yesterday before Obama's speech and is getting flack for trying to incite violence...and it's the right that is the crazed and violent ones.

Going to Detroit to challenge Republicans: Isn't that like me going to hell to challenge angels?:D
