Immigration Reform. Wall Street Reform. Peace in Middle East. Global Climate change. Save Europe. Clean Tech. Legalize Gay marriage. Legalize Marijuana. Ban Donald Trump. 4 More years. Lot to accomplish
I’m about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.
I want you to know that this wasn’t fate, and it wasn’t an accident. You made this happen.
You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn’t easy, you pressed forward.
I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.
But I want you to take real pride, as I do, in how we got the chance in the first place.
Today is the clearest proof yet that, against the odds, ordinary Americans can overcome powerful interests.
There’s a lot more work to do.
But for right now: Thank you.
What were you doing 4 years back. This day.
Funnest night on twitter. and the largest, most tweeted political event in history. Tonight I crossed 3000 tweets in my “campaign to re-elect Barack Obama”. Check out the timeline in case you missed the fun.
Obama starting to speak in Chicago. FORWARD!
