Steel: The Material of Choice (Even in Political Speeches)
Posted by Tasha Weiss on September 5, 2012 at 4:11 PM.

Regardless of political views, the U.S. steel industry is universally recognized as a symbol of American ingenuity and strength, and a backbone of American industry. First Lady Michelle Obama alluded to this in her speech last night at the Democratic National Convention:


“…So today, when the challenges we face start to seem overwhelming – or even impossible – let us never forget that doing the impossible is the history of this nation…it’s who we are as Americans…it’s how this country was built.


And if our parents and grandparents could toil and struggle for us…if they could raise beams of steel to the sky, send a man to the moon, and connect the world with the touch of a button…then surely we can keep on sacrificing and building for our own kids and grandkids.”
