Obama tells Democrats to keep faith
San Francisco Chronicle - Philip Elliott, Associated Press Writer

President Barack Obama rallied his party faithful on Thursday — and took their campaign donations — while telling them that he understands their frustration that Washington hasn’t changed during the first year of his presidency. Returning to campaign mode at two Democratic events aimed at raising $2 million to $3 million, Obama ticked off a list of accomplishments during his first year in office and asked supporters to stand with him as he tackles campaign promises he has been slow to deliver on.
