This guy’s a riot. No, wait, he’s serious?

(The Hill)President Obama boldly proclaimed Wednesday that he had fulfilled his most daring but abstract 2008 campaign pledge: “Change we can believe in.”

Obama told a gathering of top donors and Democratic officials that, while his work is not finished, “we have made extraordinary progress over these last two years.”

“When you look back at the track record of work that we’ve done over the last two years, I think it’s fair to say the promise we made to the American people has been kept, that we have delivered in change that we can believe in,” Obama said.

The president’s remarks to about 500 members of the Democratic National Committee’s Finance Committee and National Advisory Board were some of the strongest he has made yet in warming up for his re-election effort.
