Crowd cheers wildly for Obama at Paramount

President Obama touted his accomplishments to a friendly crowd of supporters at his Paramount fundraiser this afternoon. He made only passing references to his backing of gay marriage Wednesday as he outlined his campaign themes of opportunities for all and moving forward.

A vote for former Gov. Mitt Romney, he said, is a promise to renew the battles of the past four years.

“We can’t return to the policies that got us here in the first place,” Obama said.

The crowd, seated on the main floor around tables, stood for much of the speech and cheered wildly, especially when the president highlighted his views on gay rights and abortion rights.

Obama conceded that his work was not done, saying, “Are we satisfied? Of course not.”
