San Francisco (Obama.net)- Friday, President Barack Obama continued his campaign trail leading to the November 2nd Midterm Elections. Obama spoke in front of a crowd of an astounding 37,500 people on the campus of the University of Southern California right after being the San Francisco Bay Area the day before. Obama came to the legendary school to promote his Democratic colleagues in the last days before Election Day.
Obama told the crowd, which consisted of mainly college students, “You have the chance to set the direction of this state and this country, just like you did in 2008.”
Obama went on to tell the audience that this is a prime opportunity for them to prove the rest of the nation that young people do care and will make their voices heard.
Obama then reiterated the point he has been making for points that this “election is a choice between policies that got us into this mess and the policies that will get us out of this mess- a choice between moving forward and going backward.”
The crowd gave Obama one of the most positive reactions he has seen so far this election year.
The President of the United States was joined onstage by fellow Democrats Senator Barbara Boxer and Attorney General Jerry Brown.
Obama highly praised both politicians and made a strong push for the reelection of Boxer and the election of Brown, who would take over for Arnold Schwarzenegger as Governor of California.
After pressing hard for the last few months and touring the country with members of his cabinet, President Barack Obama is now about to see the final payoff for the work he has put in.
As the remaining days to the Midterm Elections continue to shrink, it appears that the Democrats have made a strong enough push to retain more seats in both the Senate and the House of Representatives than previously expected.
While Republicans are still projected to take away some of the Democratic seats, their hope for taking over the majority and controlling Congress for the next two years of President Obama’s first term seem to be slim now.
On November 3rd, President Obama will wake up and be in the position of potentially having to deal with a much stronger Republican presence in Congress, but if the first two years of his presidency are any indication, Obama is more than ready for the challenge.
