In classic Barack Obama fashion, our President handles crisis with grace, honor, and class. Just hours after the results of America’s lazy, if not apathetic failure to vote out bigotry, ignorance, and destructive obstruction, the President got up on stage and explained how he would continue to do what he has been doing — repairing an economy mortally wounded by the Republicans who dragged us into two wars and allowed banks to nearly bankrupt the nation he swore to serve and protect.
The video below is the stream from the press conference yesterday.
“Our democracy is messy and we’re diverse, and we’re big. And, there are times when you’re a politician and you’re disappointed with the results. Maybe I’m just getting older, but it doesn’t make me mopey. It energizes me ‘cos it means that this democracy is working. People in America are restless and impatient; and we want to get things done. Even when things are good, we want them to do better. That’s why this is the greatest country on earth, and that’s why I’m privileged to be President for the next couple years.”
