Democracy Now: Obama: Change Comes When “People Are Mobilized”


Campaigning over the weekend in Virginia, President Obama told supporters that the change he has pledged in Washington will only come with the mobilization of ordinary Americans.

President Obama: “You can’t change Washington just from the inside. You change it from the outside. You change it because people are mobilized. You change it with the help of ordinary Americans who are willing to make their voices heard because of the decency and the goodness and the common sense of Americans. We don’t want an inside job in Washington. We want change in Washington. From the day we began this campaign, we’ve always said that change takes more than one term or even one President, and it certainly takes more than one party. It can’t happen if you write off half the nation before you even took office.”
