Hope and Change

There are those who would have us believe that four years ago President Obama naively offered us fanciful rhetoric that has now been lost to cynical realities.

I beg to differ.

Those who think that our commitment to hope and change is gone never understood what the words meant from the beginning.

On hope:
...not blind optimism, not wishful thinking but hope in the face of difficulty, hope in the face of uncertainty, that dogged faith in the future which has pushed this nation forward even when the odds are great, even when the road is long... 
I'm hopeful because of you.
On change:
As citizens, we understand that America is not about what can be done for us. It's about what can be done by us, together through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government. That's what we believe.

That's what he's been saying all along.

Yes WE can!

  1. His second term's gonna rock. He's going to show out. Mr. President has caused a paradigm shift. Us working together is the only way we're going to beat the machine. He's counting on us being adults.
