Democrats Say Obama Deserves More Credit
President Barack Obama will officially accept his party’s nomination Thursday night. In his convention speech, he will give out his plan for the next four years. It was heard on the first day of the convention and it will be repeated on the last day.
President Obama made a forceful argument that he had improved the economy from disaster and led it in a recovery. He added that a Republican president could result into a return of the recession. He described himself as mindful of his own failings as the country continues to face difficulties as he defended his records and asked for more time to carry out his agenda.
He gave his long-term plan for the recovery of the economy. This came in the time when people are obsessed with short-term expectations. President Obama said that he won’t pretend the path he has to offer is easy or quick.
Democrats from Utah said that President Obama deserve more credit than what he has gotten so far. National Committeeman Joe Hatch said that Obama is the finest president of his lifetime. Delegate Jim Gonzales said that the country was in an economic mess four years ago and the president managed to solve it in his first term.
Hatch defended the president’s attempts to reform health care. He said that it has been on the Democratic agenda for the past 50 years and President Obama put it all on the line. Now the president is being punished for doing so.
Donna Weinholtz, member of the Democratic Rules Committee, said that he thinks President Obama has suffered a lot of disrespect directed to him and to the Office of the Presidency. When the president accepted his party’s nomination Thursday night, Democrats from Utah and across the nation were thinking about four more years.
