President Barack Obama delivered remarks at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Phoenix Awards in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011.
The President stated that he needed the help and determination of the Congressional Black Caucus in supporting and helping pass the American Jobs Act:
With patient and firm determination, I am going to press on for jobs. I’m going to press on for equality. I’m going to press on for the sake of our children. I’m going to press on for the sake of all those families who are struggling right now. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I am going to press on.
I expect all of you to march with me and press on. Take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do, CBC.
