The Time For Talk Is Over

President Barack Obama, March 8, 2010:

"The time for talk is over. We need to see where people stand, and we need all of you to help us win that vote.

So I need you to knock on doors, talk to your neighbors, pick up the phone. When you hear an argument by the water cooler and somebody's saying this or that about it, say, "No, no, no, no. Hold on a second."

(APPLAUSE)

And we need you to make your voices heard all the way in Washington, D.C. They need to -- they need to hear your voices because right now the Washington echo chamber is in full throttle. It is as deafening as it's ever been. And as we come to that final vote, that echo chamber's telling members of Congress, "Think about the politics," instead of thinking about doing the right thing."

And thus the reason I, and I suspect a fair swag of the rest of the world, breathed a huge sigh of relief when you people voted in Obama: the man makes sense.
