2012 Presidential Election: Volunteer for Barack Obama’s Campaign


[music] [crowd cheering] [President Barack Obama] I will never
forget who this victory truly belongs to it belongs to you. It belongs to you. I was never the likeliest candidate for this
office. We didn’t start with much money or many endorsements. Our campaign was not hatched
in the halls of Washington it began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living
rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston. It grew strength from the young people who
rejected the myth of their generation’s apathy. It grew strength from the not-so-young people
who braved the bitter cold and scorching heat to knock on the doors of perfect strangers. You did it because you understand the enormity
of the task that lies ahead. This victory alone is not the change we seek
it is only the chance for us to make that change. And that cannot happen if we
go back to the way things were. It cannot happen without you –without a new spirit
of service, a new spirit of sacrifice. For even as we celebrate tonight, we know
the challenges tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime. There jobs to be created, new schools to build,
and threats to meet –alliances to repair. The road ahead will be long, the climb will
be steep. We may not get there in one year or even in one term, but America I have never
been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you we as a people
well get there. [crowd cheering] America we have come so far we have seen so much but theres so
much more to do. [crowd] Yes we can! Yes we can! Yes we can!

    No. I'll vote for him again, but I won't be as involved as I was in 2008. And when I do vote for him I'll have a look of disgust on my face.

    Interesting that this ad pays more attention to Obama's 2008 candidacy than his almost 3 years of presidency, yet it's a re-election ad. Obama needs to realize that he's alienated many of his supporters, and that fact is easy to see — if president Obama was more like candidate Obama, we wouldn't see all the OWS movements all across the country, consisting largely of the young people that put him in office. Their existence is the correct belief that he hasn't been in their corner.

    We're behind you 100%

    You are for the PEOPLE and you need to keep showing us that, like you have been lately. Keep your head up and push on for our country.

    The road may be long but we're marching toward equality and economic justice for everyone, together.

    I truly believe that is we did not have such a wreckless, misguided, and frankly too extreme congress our country would not be stuck where it’s stuck. The GOP was extremely wreckless for 8 years during the bush years. The time since they took over the house has been even more infuriating seeing pretend to talk jobs yet argue about a motto we all already know and MLB coins instead of approving a jobs bill Folks lets be smart … OBAMA 2012 because I'm still hopeful that we are going to get there

    President Obama STINKS at the job and is UNWORTHY of the office. He should be LOCKED OUT of the White House (again, only on purpose this time).
    Why is he even still there ? There should've been a coupe last year. This country is too good for him.

    President Obama?
    you are in the right place at the right time,leading up to 2012,
    listen not to any who would direct you on to the wrong path,
    listen only, to the Source of your soul,for there sits real truth and justice.

    Thanks! Mr. Obama for giving so much money to your Wall St. friends… and for catering to the Wars (and escalating a new one ie Libya with your UN friends, how many billion did we spend on that now?) and thanks for shutting down Gitmo… oh wait. Oh, and thanks for ignoring your own multiple online polls that showed people want you to address medical cannabis. Shall I continue?

    Ok… you had me in 2008… you won't fool me again.

    Yes, President Obama. I will give generously to your campaign, both with money and time. You were presented with an enormous challenge and are guiding our country during bad economic times; it's taking longer than we thought, but we are moving in the right direction. You are the right person at the right time. Your star is the brightest in all the heavens…

    I'll vote for you in 2012, yes, that's true. Look at the Republicans, what else can I do?

    Call off the DEA dogs. Stop all foreign wars. Stand up to the rethuglican'ts by calling them out on their every shitbag manipulative move, stop caving to their demands of "compromise" when they give nothing in return. End sexist VAWA laws that serve only to criminalize men. Close Guantanamo. Make the top 5% of income earners pay a tax rate equal to the percentage of US wealth they own.

    tonm08 November 6, 2011

    If we could pick presidents for other countries, IRELAND would surely pick you, Barack. We notice you are willing compromise a LOT with Republicans & that is very respectful of a president, but you need to get tougher now as it often seems you are dealing with a bunch of , *We Are NOT Budging* – spoiled brats; Yes, I said it – "spoiled brats". Things would’ve progressed further if you weren’t blocked all the time from implementing. Just remember you are the boss & accept less BS from here on!

  58. tonm08
    tonm08 November 6, 2011

    From IRELAND

    Best president! You were left with a bucket full of shite to clean up and have managed to get rid of some. You would have been rid of more if others would put more trust in you and give it a try – but no, you are being held back as much as possible. You sure do have a calm patience with certain others; more than I would have.

    As you previously mentioned, it "may not even be done in one term"…You were simply honest. You are *genuinely trying! Your heart is in the right place!

    Awesome!! I was laid off in December 2008, but became self-employed in January 2012. I make the same pay in half the time, which is PERFECT because I'm a single mother of an 8-yr old. The great things that has happened to me because of this president. The extension of the unemployment has allowed me to maintain paying rent/bills. I was patient, and now I'm working as a self-employed mother AND I LOVE IT. Still not quite middle-class…but I'm working on it.
