President Obama addresses the UN (can you imagine Romney standing up there – heaven help us), campaign rallies in Ohio and VIRGINIA, addressing Clinton’s Global Initiative, fighting for the middle class, building the economy, and making China play fair.
In Virginia Beach, Virginia, President Obama said: “We want change in Washington. And I’ve always said that change takes more than one term or one President. It takes more than one party. It can’t happen if you write off half the nation before you take office. In 2008, 47 percent of this country did not vote for me. But the night of the election, I said to all those Americans, I said, I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voice. I need your help. I will be your President, too. And so I say this to Virginia: I don’t know how many of you out there will be voting for me. But I’ll be fighting for you no matter what. I’m not fighting to create Democratic jobs or Republican jobs — I’m fighting to create American jobs. I’m not fighting to improve schools in blue states or red states — I’m fighting to improve schools in the United States. The values of hard work and personal responsibility and looking after your neighbor — those aren’t just values of rich folks or poor folks, or the 1 percent or the 99 percent. They are American values and they belong to all of us. And if we reclaim those values now, if we rally around a new economic patriotism together, we can rebuild this economy together. We will grow the middle class together. We will move forward together.” Read President Obama’s Virginia remarks here
