obama1July 25, (THAINDIAN NEWS) It seems that the President of United States Barack Obama along with other Democrat leaders are in no mood to allow the Republicans gain an upper hand in the impending mid-term election this fall. Although the President was not able to make it to the annual Netroots Nation convention meeting, his words echoed in the conference hall as his videotaped speech was played loud and clear. At the annual Netroots Nation convention that started on Saturday, the President acknowledged that many people around United States feel that the change promised by the Barack Obama Government has not “come fast enough”. He added that he shares the same frustration. However, for the liberals, President Barack Obama had only one message and that was to remain with him and his party in the coming election.

During the speech, the President maintained that there is no doubt about the fact that “Change is hard”, but added that the past 18 months have taught them one thing and that is, “change is possible”. President Barack Obama tried to present the still unfulfilled promises as not only a personal or a party goal but as a combined goal of the whole intelligentsia. He urged the Netroots nation to support him and his party so that they can “finish what we’ve [they have] started”.

The kind of impact the speech of the President had on the Netroots is doubted as many of the liberal activists who had gathered for a three-day conference voiced that they would like to have some Democrat leaders out. Many said that he would do little to protect the majority of Democrats in Congress.
