I don't know if you have that expression in the U.S., but here in Canada it means OK, you have been talking up a storm, now DO something!
President Obama gave an excellent speech today in which he asked for all of you to get behind him. He wants to do the right thing but Congress is pushing against him like they always do. He can't do it alone, he needs your help.
If you are part of the group here that feels like Obama is doing a great job, then here is your chance to repay him for all his hard work. Don't just idolize, DO something!
And if you are one of those who is disappointed in him, then here is your chance to help him move in the right direction. Don't just criticize. DO something!
Here is a transcript of his remarks:
This is what he is asking you all to do, and it won't take much of your time:
I’m asking Americans all across the country to make your voice heard. Tell members of Congress what a $2,000 tax hike would mean to you. Call your members of Congress, write them an email, post it on their Facebook walls. You can tweet it using the hashtag “My2K.”
I can only do it with the help of the American people.... if everybody here goes out of their way to make their voices heard, and spread the word to your friends and your family, your coworkers, your neighbors, then I am confident we will get it done.
So come on everybody, take that same energy that you used to get the President re-elected and use it to help him make it count. Move your country forward, not backward, (or as they say in Newfoundland, not "arse foremost")
