President Obama to CBC: "Stop complainin'...Put on your marching shoes."





On September 24, President Barack Obama delivered a keynote address at the 2011 Congressional Black Caucus Convention. It was one of the most passionate, non-scripted speeches I've witnessed him deliver since he was elected. At the end of this clip he said "Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complainin'. Stop grumblin'. Stop cryin'. We are going to press on. We have work to do." 

 "The future rewards those who press on," said Pres. Obama. "I don't have time to feel sorry for myself. I don't have time to complain. I'm going to press on."
