As always, President Barack Obama gave a captivating, heartfelt speech to his supporters at the 2012 Democratic National Convention from Charlotte, N.C. on Thursday night.
We have become accustomed to Obama’s ridiculously charismatic personality and his ability to connect with the common man, and Tuesday’s address was no different. Once again, Obama let everyone know that he came from humble beginnings and stressed the importance of rebuilding the middle class, reforming education and the ever-present issue that is taxes.
Here is a short excerpt from his speech (via the Tampa Bay Times): “If you give up on the idea that your voice can make a difference, then other voices will fill the void: lobbyists and special interests; the people with the $10 million checks who are trying to buy this election and those who are making it harder for you to vote; Washington politicians who want to decide who you can marry, or control health care choices that women should make for themselves.”
Was that a subtle jab at rival Mitt Romney? I think so.
Tuesday night was a solid pump-up speech from our President (and that is literally the only reason why the Democratic and Republican National Conventions are still around—to pump up supporters), but the real juicy stuff won’t start for another month or so.
Stay tuned and Ba-Rock on.
