In Boulder Colorado yesterday, President Obama reminded voters that the American people are resilient in hard times.
Referring to the devastation from Hurricane Sandy, Obama reassured the crowd that the American people could withstand the blow, just as they had in the past.
“When disaster strikes, we see America at its best,” he said. “The petty differences that consume us in normal times, they all seem to melt away. We saw it here in Colorado with the fires this summer, and then the terrible tragedy in Aurora.”
Obama reminded his supporters that the same American resilience helped restore the country despite “the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.”
“That spirit has guided this country along its improbable journey for more than two centuries,” Obama said. “And it’s carried us through the trials and tribulations of the last four years.”
