Talking Points: Reelection Campaign
· The President has launched his campaign to be reelected for a second term.
· While the campaign gets off the ground, the President will be focused first and foremost on the important work the American people elected him to do.
· Over the next year and a half, we will create a grassroots organization that's more far-reaching, focused, and innovative than anything we've built before.
· At its heart, that effort will be fueled by the energy and commitment of folks on the ground, community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, house to house all around the country.
· Real change never starts in Washington – and from its earliest days this movement didn't start in Washington. It starts with folks all across America who believe that despite all the problems we face, we can steer our country toward a brighter place. The President's supporters have been working tirelessly over the past two years to promote his agenda in their communities. Without the commitment of the American people, without the work of grassroots organizers, volunteers and community leaders of all walks of life we would not have:
o Taken the economy back from the brink of a depression and gotten the economy growing again, now creating more than 1.8 million private sector jobs.
o Passed historic reform to expand health care and lower its costs, preventing insurance companies from discriminating against people with preexisting conditions.
o Held financial companies accountable and put reforms in place to prevent another taxpayer bailout.
o Cut taxes for the middle class and small businesses-the drivers of job creation.
o Torn down the walls of discrimination to allow gay Americans to serve their country openly.
o Ended combat in Iraq, bringing home 100,000 American troops.
· We've come a long way, but we have more urgent business to do for America – and we have more to do to change the way that business gets done in Washington. We believe we should live in an America where:
o Everyone who wants a job can find one.
o Anyone with a good idea can turn it into a thriving business.
o Our education system delivers results, and prepares all of our children to win the future.
o We are out-innovating the rest of the world, and creating the jobs and industries of the future, including in clean energy.
o Our government lives within its means so we can make investments in our future.
· America is moving forward. We simply can't afford to go back.
· Winning the future is not a spectator sport. It's something we have to fight for. We can't protect the progress we've made – or make any more – if we fail to mobilize. That's why we're getting started now.
· As the President continues to do the important work of the American people, we need to start building our grassroots movement right away so that we are ready for 2012.
