  •  I watched Trumka's remarks carefully then (13+ / 0-)

    I heard both reassurance and potential threat.  "We're behind the president" has two meanings, and I heard both of them.  I think unions know they'd better stick very close to Obama in these negotiations, and are happy to be as supportive as can be as long as they're seeing what they want to see.

    As long as Trumka's happy, I'm pretty happy too.  But I'm glad he's right there next to the president.

      and telling them don't try to pull a fast One...this is important to give the WH leverage.   I like everyone working together including pushing back on retirement age and premium increases everytime it rears its heads.
