Peter Johnson Jr. to American People: Give the President 'The Opportunity to Lead'

When it comes to America’s best interests, Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson Jr. feels that it’s everyone’s responsibility to work together, especially over the next four years.

“I think it’s the patriotic obligation of all Americans to understand that a second term means a second chance,” said Johnson Jr. while speaking on Fox and Friends, referring to President Obama’s re-election. “That doesn’t mean giving up

first principles,” he explained, but rather that all Americans need to pull together for the greater good — no matter how they voted on Election Day.

“The real issue becomes, will the president come across the aisle?” asked Johnson, explaining that the president needs to appeal to his critics. “There’s an obligation that’s conferred on the president to bring us together,” he added.

“But at the same time, there is an obligation on people who have disagreed with him in the past,” Johnson later continued, “… to give him the opportunity to lead.”
