Obama for middle-managers

(inspired by the ‘Yes we can’ powerpoint slides…)

We Will

  • act – not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth
  • build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together
  • restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost
  • harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories
  • transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age
  • begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people
  • work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the spectre of a warming planet
  • [To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent], extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist
  • [for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents], defeat you

We Will Not…

  • give [those ideals] up for expedience’s sake
  • apologise for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defence
