Four years ago, many Americans were excited about the possibilities of a new president. I wish President Obama had succeeded, because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division.
This isn't something we have to accept.
We believe in America, and now is the moment when we can do something to turn things around.
I am running for president to help create a better future. A future where everyone who wants a job can find one. Where no senior fears for the security of their retirement. An America where every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads them to a good job and a bright horizon.
The time has come for us to put the disappointments of the last four years behind us. To put aside the divisiveness and the recriminations. To forget about what might have been, and to look ahead to what can be.
If I am elected president of these United States, I will work with all my energy and soul to restore America, to lift our eyes to a better future. Because our children deserve it, our nation depends upon it, and the peace and freedom of the world require it.
And with your help we will deliver that brighter future.
