Obama Speech Live Stream: Watch Live Coverage from Democratic National Convention 2012 in Charlotte
President Barack Obama is speaking at the Democratic National Convention 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina tonight.
He was introduced by First Lady Michelle Obama to whom he gave a long kiss. Obama has accepted the nomination to the Presidential Candidacy.
"But when all is said and done - when you pick up that ballot to vote - you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation. Over the next few years, big decisions will be made in Washington, on jobs and the economy; taxes and deficits; energy and education; war and peace - decisions that will have a huge impact on our lives and our children's lives for decades to come," Obama said.
Obama also outlined a set of Goals for America tonight on manufacturing, energy, education, national security, and the deficit - a real, achievable plan that will create jobs, expand opportunity, and ensure an economy built to last.
- Create one million new manufacturing jobs by the end of 2016
- Double exports by the end of 2014
- Cut net oil imports in half by 2020
- Support 600,000 natural gas jobs by the end of the decade
- Cut the growth of college tuition in half over the next 10 years
- Recruit 100,000 math and science teachers over the next 10 years
- Train two million workers for real jobs at community colleges
- Invest in the economy with the money we're no longer spending on war
- Reduce the deficit by more than $4 trillion over the next decade
