Of course I wanted Obama to frame the debate about the recovery package, about financial oversight, about gay marriage, and so much more – but listen to me carefully: America is on the move – and every progressive action has a reactionary counter-reaction. This is nothing new, and nothing to be scared of. Because demographics, fairness and the competition of ideas, in our great country, always favor progress. Obama is playing the long game, the game with the greatest rewards. It’s time we gave him our full-hearted support.
It is time for us to be bound by the work that we do together to build a future for our children. We must not forget the unprecedented turnout of youth voters in NC, VA, OH, PA and in other key swing states and across the country in general, that we are called once again to transform history by turning out the largest youth vote in American history for Barack Obama. That special feeling that we all had in 2008 is still with us, it is still there, it has never gone away. We might want to bitch and moan a few times or yell and scream at the television, and that is okay. But, let us not forget that we have never seen a President who cares and fights this hard for every American, regardless of color, class, race, sexual orientation or creed. We have never seen a President as progressive as this. We have never seen a President who has accomplished more in his first two and a half years as him. Don't let anyone or anything break your spirit!
Join me and millions of others who know that more change and progress will depend on our every step, breath and vote. That is why I will work day and night until November 7, 2012 to get Barack Obama re-elected. Our work is not done! This is no time to cop out. The present and future are in our hands, hearts, minds and mobilization. Let’s get to it. Let's continue to change America and the world. Let's re-elect President Barack Obama.
