“Ripples of hope”: The President thanks his campaign volunteers

This is the man that Republicans think is a cynical, divisive, un-American, anti-American socialist redistributor hell-bent on destroying the nation and everything it stands for? This man?

Clearly, the modern Republican Party has gone utterly insane. Thank goodness most of the country hasn’t.

Whatever people think of his policies, whatever his failures and victories in the last four years (and the next four), this video should make it absolutely clear that President Barack Obama is a good man with decency, empathy, and compassion at his core. That’s important in a leader. I’m very glad we have this one.

Each time a man stands up for an idea, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

— Robert F. Kennedy
