President Obama appears before the Democratic Convention in North Carolina tonight—after a heartfelt on-stage thanks to Bill Clinton who delivered a rousing defense of Mr. Obama's handling of the economy.
Voters are tuning in to see the President make his case for four more years. Obama joined Bill Clinton on stage after one of the most-loved democrats delivered his resounding endorsement.
"We're going to keep President Obama on the job," Clint said during his speech at the Democratic National Convention.
President Clinton—who led the country during a strong economy—validated the current president's economic plan and said no president could fully repair the damage in four years.
"The Republican argument against the President's re-election was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. It went something like this: we left him a total mess, he hasn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in," Clinton said.
Clinton spent the night dismantling Mitt Romney's attacks saying, "As another president once said, ‘there they go again'."
He also said democrats have created more private sector jobs than republicans in the last 50 years.
"Are we where we want to be today? No. Is the president satisfied? Of course not, but we are better off than we were when he took office," Clinton said.
Now that democrats have officially nominated the president for a second term, Thursday night he must sell voters on his plan for the next four years. However, he won't do it at the open air Bank of American Stadium. The Obama Campaign is moving his speech indoors because of possible thunderstorms.
