President of the United States smiles confidently for the camera on the cover of ESSENCE magazine newest edition. Inside the July 2012 issue, President Barack Obama touches on how he plans to amend the issues of healthcare and the economy. He also dished on the reality of his presidency and the changes he has made thus far:
“I’ve always approached my presidency as a long-term proposition…I didn’t run for office just to clean up the mess I inherited. I didn’t run for office just to return to the status quo. Understanding that some of the things I get done, we may not see the benefits from them for ten years. But that’s how change happens…”
FLOTUS aka Michelle Obama is also featured in the issue, sending out a special message to military families. The July 2012 issues hits newsstands on Tuesday, June 12th. Gotta love the Obamas.
