Remember when President Obama won the election in 2008? Remember the enthusiasm and overwhelming support for then-candidate Obama? Remember the immense national and global response from newspapers all over the world? Remember the sense of pride we felt that HOPE and CHANGE were on our horizon? Well, in case you forgot, below is a link to a site that captured pictures of front pages of local, national, and global newspapers the world over. Let this be a reminder of what we can achieve with the POWER OF OUR VOTES!!!
In 2008 the theme was “YES WE CAN“…and yes we did elect him. The theme in 2012 is “FORWARD“…and yes we can re-elect him to keep a progressive and positive momentum. Even if you have already voted, keep doing your part to spread the “get out and VOTE” message. We are 10 days away from making history again by re-electing our President to another term. Yes we can VOTE to keep it moving forward!!!
I believe in our President and he believes in us. In order to keep the country moving FORWARD, we need President Obama in the White House for a second term. He is the peoples’ President. The opposing party made it clear that it was their mission to “just say no” from the the day President Obama took office. They declined to reach across the aisle to work together on issues affecting every American. Political stance notwithstanding, we know there is a major underlying reason for this other than fact that he is a Democrat.
Remember his New Hampshire speech back in 2008? Yes, we can…to justice and equality…to opportunity and prosperity…Yes, we can…heal this nation…and…repair this world. “And, together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story, with three words that will ring from coast to coast, from sea to shining sea: Yes, we can.” And, yes we have made progress on those points.
I believe he was sincere in his message then as a presidential candidate, and I believe that he is sincere in his message to the American people as President of the United States of America. Under President Obama’s leadership, significant progress has been made for our country but we still have work to do. He is “Betting on America” to support him and keep him in the White House for another term . And yes, we can do this again in 2012!!!
Now let’s help him keep it moving FORWARD. I have his back and I will most certainly VOTE for him come November 6.
