Obama: “If I were busting my butt in the service industry…I’d join a union”

It’s funny to hear Obama talk about busting his butt. The only time he does that is on the way to the golf course. Yet these people are supposed to believe he’s identifying with them or something:

CBS DC – President Barack Obama says he’ll press Congress to raise the minimum wage in the same way he courted his wife — never taking no for an answer.

Obama brought a buoyant Labor Day message to Wisconsin, telling union members on Monday that he sees, quote, “engines are revving a little louder” in an economy coming back from a near-depression five years ago.

Now, he says, quote, “America deserves a raise.” He promises his administration will keep pushing for one.
Obama told the crowd that he would join a union if he was working in the service industry.

“If I were busting my butt in the service industry and wanted an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work, I’d join a union,” Obama said.

The president cracked that the struggle resembles his hard sell when Michelle agreed to marry him. Obama says, quote, “I just wore her down.”
