Obama typically takes the high road in dealing with this administration. But he’s done holding back. He’s calling out Trump, calling out Republicans, and calling on all-of-us (new and seasoned activists alike) to get real and get our hands a little dirty in a pivotal election.
“You cannot sit back and wait for a savior. You can’t opt out because you don’t feel sufficiently inspired by this or that particular candidate. This is not a rock concert. This is not Coachella. We don’t need a messiah. All we need are decent, honest, hard-working people who are accountable and who have America’s best interests at heart. And they’ll step up and they’ll join our government, and they will make things better if they have support. One election will not fix everything that needs to be fixed. But it will be a start. And you have to start it. What’s going to fix our democracy is you.”
Let’s hear what Obama had to say this week about the path to saving our democracy. Then let’s jump in the fray with him to make sure we win in 2018 and beyond.
