I saw the president make the tough calls in the Situation Room – and today our troops in Iraq have finally come home so America can do some nation building here at home. That was the change that we believed in. That was the change we fought for. That was the change President Obama delivered.
Because of the president’s leadership every American will have access to affordable quality health care.
The person who takes the oath of office in the next four months will shape not just the next four years but the next forty years of our nation. In these next four years we need proven leadership proven judgment and proven values. America needs four more years of President Barack Obama.
While Mayor Daley surprised me today with his decision to not run for reelection I have never been surprised by his leadership dedication and tireless work on behalf of the city and the people of Chicago.
Whose leadership whose judgment whose values do you want in the White House when that crisis lands like a thud on the Oval Office desk?
Everybody knows they’re on the Obama team: There isn’t vice presidential vs. presidential division there’s not a generational pull. People have internalized that this is a real moment in history.
I don’t want to go negative on Franklin Delano Roosevelt but he didn’t pass an economic deal in the first 100 days. We have passed the largest Recovery Act in the history of the country.
When President Obama entered the White House the economy was in a free-fall. The auto industry: on its back. The banks: frozen up. More than three million Americans had already lost their jobs. And America’s bravest our men and women in uniform were fighting what would soon be the longest wars in our history.
