The rhetoric coming from speakers at the event was already heated before Hoffa took the stage. Hoffa then declared there's a "war on workers" and vowed that organized labor would "remember in November" which lawmakers were opposing the president's agenda.
"We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face -- a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party," he said. "And there's only one way to beat and win that war -- the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight."
Hoffa called on workers to get involved in opposing Tea Party-aligned lawmakers next November.
"President Obama, this is your army, we are ready to march," Hoffa said. "But everybody here's got to vote. If we go back, and keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son-of-a-bitches out."

What was that speech from Obama about civil discourse--- Funny--I am a tea party member and didn't know that we were against the working man in this country-because we too are working men and women.
I just can't get over the fact that you can get 2 MILLION tea party members in a group in Washington D.C. without any arrests, violence or talk of violence against others-and you get a small group of Lefties together--and they come out swinging & slinging threats against other law abiding--taxpaying citizens--every single time.
Any of you liberals want to comment on this?--
