I am very proud that I was able to make a small donation to the Obama For America effort to help re-elect the President. To be clear, my donation was not even close to his largest, but he still send me a thank you note…me and the millions of other Americans that gave what they could to help keep our country moving forward. But still it is special to me, so I am sharing it with you.
HOW THIS HAPPENED
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.
Here is the very touching video that captures the moments that Obama spent after his re-election with his team.
This is why I love this guy and voted for him again…
