Weekly Address: President Obama on the Budget Compromise to Avoid a Government Shutdown | The White House

Weekly Address: President Obama on the Budget Compromise to Avoid a Government Shutdown | The White House
What the nation witnessed this week was democracy at work. America's democratic process at work is a thing to marvel. It is not a neat process but a bit messy sometimes--like anything that requires human involvement and a level of cooperation between teams of rivals. Our democratic process is a showcase for other countries that want to institute a democratic process in their country. It is a lot of hard work and it requires its participants to communicate in an effective manner. It also requires a belief that the democratic process works when the people work it.
God Bless America. Just think of those who lived on these lands before us and gave their lives for the right to do so. They were free white and black, enslaved black, working class, rich Native Americans, men and women and children--just like us.
