President Obama held a rally in Milwaukee yesterday, with special guest Katy Perry and thousands of fired up Wisconsinites.
Wisconsin, we’re all gathered here today because we've got more work to do. In three days, you have a choice to make. It’s a choice between two very different visions for our future. It’s a choice between a return to the top-down economics that caused our economy to crash or a future that’s built on making sure everybody is playing their part.
America has always done best when everybody has got a fair shot, everybody is doing their fair share, everybody is playing by the same rules. That’s what we believe. That’s why you elected me in 2008. That’s why I’m running for a second term as President of the United States.
President Obama also took a moment to touch on the effects of Hurricane Sandy and the victims of the storm.
As a nation, we've got to mourn those who’ve been lost. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. We're going to stay with the folks whose lives have been upended every step of the way until we have fully rebuilt. That's what America does. That's what we're about.
In the midst of these tragedies, we're also inspired by the heroes that run into buildings and wade through water; neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy; leaders of different political parties working together to fix what’s broken. It’s a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough times may get, we always bounce back because we're all in this together. We rise or fall as one nation and as one people. And that spirit has guided this nation along its improbable journey for more than two centuries. And it’s what carried us through the trials and tribulations of the last four years.
"That's what we're fighting for, Wisconsin. That's why I'm asking for your vote. And if you’re willing to work with me, and knock on doors with me, and make some phone calls with me, and turn out with me and grab your friends and your neighbors and your coworkers and get them to the polls for me, we’ll win Wisconsin. We'll win this election!"
