President Obama: “You Are Why I Ran for President in the First Place”

Yesterday, President Obama spoke to an excited and energized crowd under sunny skies at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. He talked about the progress that we’ve made since he took office, training our workers for a 21st-century economy, and closing tax loopholes that could cost taxpayers nearly $20 billion over the next 10 years.

The President called for a new sense of optimism and collective patriotism in this country: “Cynicism is a choice, and hope is a better choice. And if we can work together, I promise you there’s no holding America back.”

Watch the President speak in L.A., and hear what he’s fighting for every single day.
