Obama gave a buck-up speech to liberal supporters.
He said it’s been hard work since the “big party” on Election Night 2008, and some people may be saying, “this isn’t happening as fast as I would like.”
It’s “hard to keep faith,” he said, when there are people unemployed and houses facing foreclosure and negative ads on TV.
“You can’t let it get to you. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that this fight is not worth it,” he said.
He ran down a list of accomplishments, saying that there are patients who can afford health care, students who can afford college, and teachers, small business owners and firefighters who are still working because of their efforts.
“There are 100,000 brave men and women who are back from a war in Iraq,” he said, drawing loud applause. “So don’t let anybody tell you change isn’t possible.”
