Flashback to Obama's 2008 stump speech on October 20, 2008 in Tampa Bay, Florida.
"Now, make no mistake: the change we need won't come easy or without cost. We will all need to tighten our belts, we will all need to sacrifice and we will all need to pull our weight because now more than ever, we are all in this together."By "we", Obama meant you.
