Obama during his speech:

I’ve served in Congress with many of you. I know many of you well. There are a lot of good people here, on both sides of the aisle. And many of you have told me that this isn’t what you signed up for – arguing past each other on cable shows, the constant fundraising, always looking over your shoulder at how the base will react to every decision.

Speech ends, donation pitch immediately goes out:

“I hope you’re excited about the agenda I laid out tonight for 2015,” Obama’s email read.

Now it’s time to get to work.

Let’s go — make a monthly contribution to support Democrats now:
