Obama to N.C. Voters: The Fate of the Country and World ‘Rests on Your Shoulders’

Posted on 11/2/2016 3:48 PM in Politics


“She’s the right person, she’s the right person at the right time. By keep in mind, North Carolina, all the progress that we’ve made over the last eight years, all the progress we hope to make over the next eight years, all of that goes out the window if we don’t win this election.

If we don’t win this election, potentially, if we don’t win North Carolina. So I hate to put a little pressure on you, but the fate of the republic rests on your shoulders. The fate of the world is teetering and you, North Carolina, are going to have to make sure that we push it in the right direction.

Now, I know that, I know that at the end of a campaign, you must be tired of TV commercials. There are so many negative ads and there is so much noise, and there are so many distractions, and everything is, every day is just hysteria and over the top coverage. And at a certain point, there’s the temptation to just want to tune it out. You kind of feel overdosed. Even those of us in politics sometimes feel like I’ve had enough politics.

I understand the feeling, I promise you. But I want you to push away the noise for a second and just focus on the choice you face in this election. Because the truth is, the choice is,  if we put aside all the noise, all the distractions, all the nonsense, all the  few push all that away, this choice actually could not be simpler, it could not be clearer. It really couldn’t.”
