An Orlando mom for Obama

''I'm a single mom. I'm a disabled single mom. I look at my son every day, and I want him to have all the opportunities that my parents were able to give to me. I know that this president is the one who works for me, who fights for me.''

"I'm a single mom. I'm a disabled single mom. I look at my son every day, and I want him to have all the opportunities that my parents were able to give to me. I know that this president is the one who works for me, who fights for me. And that's what we need—someone who's going to remember that we're not all even upper-middle class. So many of us are down in the trenches, trying hard every day. That's how he grew up. That's how this president grew up. He understands what it's like for me, what it's like for my son.

"My son wants to go to Stanford. How am I going to send my son to Stanford if things go back to what they were? We have to keep moving forward, for the sake of our kids, for the sake of us, for all of us who are lower class. We're not low-class people, we're just financially strapped. He understands that's worth fighting for, and that's what he does. So that's what we do: We stand up with him and for him and fight every day."
