Special Moments with our President

Special moments with our President! Whether chillin’ with his daughters, out on the campaign trail, attending to executive duties, or spending quiet time with the First Lady, our Prez is all about taking care of business and looking out for us. He has our back and we’ve got his.

President Obama: Obama for America TV Ad

Our President is the man with a plan to keep our country moving FORWARD. It is critical and important to vote for him on November 6th. Together, we can help him and our fellow citizens – ALL of our fellow citizens – continue down the path of economic recovery and renewed prosperity for our United States of America. I support our President and I approve of his message.

Hope, Change, and Moving FORWARD…Not Backward

Keeping things moving FORWARD, I want to say how proud I am of the accomplishments President Obama and his administration have achieved thus far in his presidency. He is doing his best to make good on many of the promises/goals for the county that he laid out during his 2008 acceptance speech.

He will be the first to tell you that he is not completely satisfied with where we are. He has stated such. President Obama’s current campaign message, FORWARD, continues the momentum of HOPE and CHANGE and how far we have come since he took office. We all know that he inherited a hot mess left over from the previous administration. As President Clinton stated in his 2012 DNC speech:

“I like the argument for President Obama’s re-election a lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery, and laid the foundation for a modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses, and lots of new wealth for the innovators … President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. No President – not me or any of my predecessors could have repaired all the damage in just four years. But conditions are improving and if you’ll renew the President’s contract you will feel it.”

We, the people, need to grant President Obama another term as POTUS so that he can continue to lead our country. He is a President for ALL the people, not some percentage of the population. He knows we still have much to do but he also reminds us of how far we have come.

“America, I never said this journey would be easy, and I won’t promise that now. Yes, our path is harder – but it leads to a better place. Yes our road is longer – but we travel it together. We don’t turn back. We leave no one behind. We pull each other up. We draw strength from our victories, and we learn from our mistakes, but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon, knowing that Providence is with us, and that we are surely blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on Earth.”

President Obama encourages and embraces ALL people. Our President reminds us that, “It will be a choice between two different paths for America. A choice between two fundamentally different visions for the future.” The choice truly is ours to make. We have a say in the direction our country takes by making our voices heard with our votes on November 6th. I choose to move FORWARD. Which way are you going/voting?

Stand Up, Speak Up, and Speak Out

Your VOTE is your VOICE. As Rep. John Lewis so eloquently stated in his DNC speech: “Too many people struggled, suffered, and died to make it possible for every American to exercise their right to vote. So, Democrats, we must not be silent. We must stand up, speak up, and speak out.”

The value of our vote cannot be diminished by the efforts of those who want otherwise. The value of our vote is more precious than the megabucks of the super PACs. There is too much at stake not to let our collective voices be heard in chorus at the polls on election day November 6th. Together we can help President Obama move it FORWARD!

“I Accept Your Nomination”

We need President Obama in the White House for another four years, so that together, we can keep the momentum moving FORWARD! I am proud of our President and all that he has done. As he stated in his speech on Thursday night: “We’re not moving backwards. We’re moving forward. That’s why I’m running for re-election.”

Here is the video that was played at the DNC on Thursday night, September 6, 20 12, before our President took to the stage to accept our party’s nomination. We are on this journey together…he’s got our back…we’ve got his! Now that we have nominated him, lets VOTE to support him!
