Exercising his usual spoken word artist style with poetic recitation language, Obama laid out a progressive agenda for issues like gun control, climate change, gay marriages and immigration reform to the cheering crowd.
"We have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action," said Obama.
It was on November 6, 2012 that Obama got re-elected as president of the US for a second term by securing 332 electoral votes against 270 required for the win. He won the election with 51% of the popular vote. In the history of the country, Obama has become the first Democratic president since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win the majority of the popular vote twice.
