Obama Compares Voting to Exercise in Event for Biden: ‘You’re Never Going to Look Like The Rock, But You Can Be Healthier’

‘Just by virtue of one single election, things don’t become perfect’


OBAMA: “I was talking to a buddy of mine who is a personal trainer. He said, yeah, you know, I meet folks, they start off, they’re supposed to be on a workout program, and, you know, after about a month, they say, you know what, this isn’t helping me. I’m not looking like The Rock. So I’m just going to quit working out. And he tells them, listen, you’re never going to look like The Rock. But you can be healthier than you are right now. And you’ll live longer and have a better quality of life, and set a better example for your kids if you work out and eat better. Right? Well, voting is a little bit like that. Just by virtue of one single election, things don’t become perfect. But you get yourself on a pattern, on a habit, of being better represented, and getting better served by your government. And that’s the message that we have to send young people.”
