It’s really sad to see the President of the United States having to defend himself against Tea Party / Birther / Exotic / Socialist allegations while he has to deal with things such as world peace (e.g. facilitating the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, containing an unpredictable Iran, etc.), eliminating poverty (in the world as well as in the United States), saving the middle class, providing all Americans with health care, bettering the education system, etc. The man has a vision and wants to get on with materializing it, but he’s being bogged down by petty politics.
What Obama needs to say to the apathetic voters, democrats included, is that the biggest reason why they need to vote for the Dems in the coming elections is to prevent the Republicans from taking power.
America cannot afford to let the GOP take back any part of Congress, or else every single piece of legislation would be stuck and beat until it’s dead, and government would get nothing done. America also cannot let the Republicans win because they are a party whose platform makes almost no sense at all, and would do the country much more harm than good. Finally, the Democrats need to vote to keep the GOP out because the Republicans would lead the country backwards, to more of what we had with the Bush administration.
