Every politician sells themselves as the candidate of change. It’s the word to say, the word to be, it always has been and probably always will. It’s classic BS politics – it’s ambiguous, noncommittal, very open to end-user interpretation.
I’m not going to try to convince you Obama is the first major party presidential candidate of our generation who will actually bring real change to our country. I don’t need to convince you. You already believe it.
Why? Why do we believe in Obama? We don’t even need him to claim to be the candidate of change. We already know he is. Why? How?
One word: NITGOBC: Not In The Good Ol’ Boys Club.
Obama isn’t from old money. Obama is a first-generation American. Obama comes from a broken home. Obama hasn’t followed a path in life laid down by his father, family, or trust fund – he’s built a path of his own. And, thank God, Obama isn’t one more dried up old, rich, white male.
NITGOBC isn’t something you can fake. It isn’t something you need to explain. It’s something that’s built by decades of growth from challenge. And it is those same challenges that have built Obama into the leader he is today that we now see and feel acting on us, our generation, and our country – building her into the America she will be tomorrow. That’s why we believe in Obama.
America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past. Our time to bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face. Our time to offer a new direction for the country we love.
Vote Obama, President of the US of A. Change we DO believe in.
