Obama: Recovery requires 'more than a few years'
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – President Barack Obama appealed to the nation Thursday night for another four years in office, asserting that his policies are returning the country to economic prosperity and outlining a series of second-term goals that he said would cut the deficit, increase manufacturing jobs, reduce dependence on foreign oil and slow the growth of college costs.
Obama said the choice between him and Republican Mitt Romney represents the clearest in a generation, a choice between sharply contrasting visions and political philosophies. But after entering office in January 2009 amid outsized expectations, he cautioned that the path he offers may be hard but will lead to "a better place."
"The truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades," he said. "It will require common effort, shared responsibility and the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one."
