Here is the first President in a long time that hasn't had an ax to grind with his own middle class people. He is the type of President who will ENHANCE the way the working people are treated in this country.
He thinks that workers are better off when they organize into a union. And like he says himself, he is a President that "isn't afraid to say the word union."
The last President wasn't afraid to say the word union either- it's just the fact that whenever he did say something - IT WAS AGAINST UNIONS AND THE PEOPLE IN THEM.
Some Sean Hannity-esque detractors question the great excitement and enthusiasm that is overtly evident out in the general public. It puzzles them. They even mock it.
The reasons for all of the excitement are varied but they have one very important and common component: they each relate to his genuine concern with something that the American people need addressed. That is the change if you haven't caught on yet - he cares about us, the Americans.
