During his State of the Union address, Obama recalled his glorious 2004 speech in Boston at the Democratic National Convention that nominated Sen. John Kerry for president.
“You know, just over a decade ago, I gave a speech in Boston where I said there wasn’t a liberal America, or a conservative America; a black America or a white America — but a United States of America,” he said recalling his background as a young man coming from Hawaii to a political career in Chicago.
Asserting that the critics are still wrong, Obama held fast to his original vision.
“I still believe that we are one people. I still believe that together, we can do great things, even when the odds are long,” he said. “I believe this because over and over in my six years in office, I have seen America at its best.”
