Addressing the Netroots Nation convention, President Obama wanted them to know he is committed to their cause.

“Change hasn’t come fast enough for too many Americans. I know that,” Obama said in a surprise video appearance at the annual Netroots Nation convention. “I know it hasn’t come fast for many of you who fought so hard during the election.”

In his remarks, the president said the combat mission in Iraq would soon end, and that the administration is working to repeal the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for gays and close the U.S. prison for terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay.

“In ways large and small we’ve begun to deliver on the change you fought so hard for,” Obama said.

“We cant afford to slide backward. And that’s the choice America faces this November,” he added. “Keep up the fight.”

Obama’s video was introduced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said, “Your impatience is justified.”
