Response to WilliamPitt (Original post)

58. Thanks. I didn't just vote for him. I volunteered long hours for his election and re-election.

You should have seen me election day 2008. Up at 4:30 a.m. Drive to the polls a long way from my house. Stay there until 8:30 at night. So dead tired when I got home that I was already asleep when my daughter called: "Mom, did you hear?"

I thought we wouldn't know until the morning. Boy, was I wrong.

And 2012, I was out there starting to talk about the campaign way early in the spring, organizing. I am not a lazy person. I am willing to work for what is right. Electing Obama was right. I wish he would remember that people like me did not get out the vote and campaign for him so that we could have more of the bungling Bush. We want a strong Obama who stands for what is right and good and morally correct for our country, for the people of our country and not just for his friends in the banks and corporations. He seems to have forgotten where and who we are -- the little people who worked and voted for him and who got him elected.
