GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Well, it’s official, President Obama is the Democratic nominee, again.
BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Madam Chairwoman, delegates, I accept your nomination for president of the United States.
So you see, the election four years ago wasn’t about me. It was about you.
My fellow citizens, you were the change. If you turn away now, if you turn away now, if you buy into the cynicism that the change we fought for isn’t possible, well, change will not happen.
If you give up on the idea that your voice can make a difference, then other voices will fill the void. The lobbyists and special interests. The people with $10 million checks who are trying to buy this election. And those who are trying to make it harder for you to vote.
Washington politicians who want to decide who you can marry or control health care choices that women should be making for themselves.
