We’re in the heat of the political season, so let’s look at some of the real differences between Republicans and Democrats. If you’re undecided, choose sides HERE.
People say how disappointed they are in Obama. My cousin Margaret reminds us of what the President actually promised in that acceptance speech:
“The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment — this was the time — when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals.”
And when folks claim Obama has accomplished nothing and we’re no better off than we were four years ago, remind them of these: The Top 50 Accomplishments according to The Washington Monthly.
As my cousin says: “We and he have not finished our difficult journey. Keep the faith.”
