Obama speaks, you listen:
"You have to go through life with more than just a passion for change—you have to have strategy," Obama said, saying that what is needed is "not just awareness but action, not just hashtags but votes." In the end, showing up on Election Day is what matters. "People try to make this political thing really complicated,” Obama said. “You know what? Just vote. It's math. If you have more votes than the other guy, you get to do what you want."
"Change requires more than righteous anger," Obama added, specifically criticizing those who try to shut down political rallies. "Don't do that," Obama said. "No matter how ridiculous or offensive you might find the things that come out of their mouths. Because as my grandmother used to tell me, 'Every time a fool speaks they are just advertising their own ignorance.'"
Yup; and, yup.
