President Barack Obama is covering the July issue of Essence magazine.
Inside the pages, the President speaks on his future plans on health, the economy, and more should he be re-elected this November. He spoke with the magazine about how he never saw himself being President for only a short period of time.
“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…”
First Lady Michelle Obama also has a feature in the issue, as she touches on her long running commitment to military families.
