Barack Obama talks the talk when addressing union audiences, hitting the notes they want to hear about NAFTA and the job losses he and they attribute to lowering trade barriers. But when it comes to supporting domestic industries, he tells American workers to take a walk, at least when it come to his nice-looking suits.

More evidence of the difference between Obama's rhetoric and performance.
