CHARLOTTE, N.C. — President Barack Obama asked the nation Thursday to choose a “harder” path to long-term economic prosperity, outlining grand economic promises for a second term in office and describing the 2012 election as a vote on the nature of American citizenship.

Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention concluded three days of speeches from Democratic leaders, who told voters that their party – and only their party – could be trusted to look out for the interests of the suffering middle class.And make no mistake, the president and his supporters repeatedly acknowledged that voters are suffering, that the economy is far from fully healed and that the country does not currently sense that it is on the doorstep of a better future.
