President Obama's re-election speech (must read!)

President Obama is definitely one of the best orators the world has even seen. Incredible speech. See it below...
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. It moves forward because of you. It moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression, the spirit that has lifted this country from the depths of despair to the great heights of hope, the belief that while each of us will pursue our own individual dreams, we are an American family and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one people.


(APPLAUSE) Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come. I want to thank every American who participated in this election...

 (APPLAUSE) ... whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time.

(APPLAUSE) By the way, we have to fix that. (APPLAUSE) Whether you pounded the pavement or picked up the phone... (APPLAUSE) ... whether you held an Obama sign or a Romney sign, you made your voice heard and you made a difference. I just spoke with Governor Romney and I congratulated him and Paul Ryan on a hard-fought campaign.

(APPLAUSE) We may have battled fiercely, but it's only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future. From George to Lenore to their son Mitt, the Romney family has chosen to give back to America through public service and that is the legacy that we honor and applaud tonight.

(APPLAUSE) In the weeks ahead, I also look forward to sitting down with Governor Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward.

(APPLAUSE) I want to thank my friend and partner of the last four years, America's happy warrior, the best vice president anybody could ever hope for, Joe Biden. And I wouldn't be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago.

(APPLAUSE) Let me say this publicly: Michelle, I have never loved you more. I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too, as our nation's first lady.

(APPLAUSE) Sasha and Malia, before our very eyes you're going up to become two strong, smart beautiful young women, just like your mom. And I'm so proud of you guys. But I will say that for now one dog's probably enough.

(LAUGHTER) To the best campaign team and volunteers in the history of politics...

(APPLAUSE) The best. The best ever. Some of you were new this time around, and some of you have been at my side since the very beginning.

 (APPLAUSE) But all of you are family. No matter what you do or where you go from here, you will carry the memory of the history we made together and you will have the life-long appreciation of a grateful president. Thank you for believing all the way, through every hill, through every valley.

(APPLAUSE) You lifted me up the whole way and I will always be grateful for everything that you've done and all the incredible work that you put in.

(APPLAUSE) I know that political campaigns can sometimes seem small, even silly. And that provides plenty of fodder for the cynics that tell us that politics is nothing more than a contest of egos or the domain of special interests. But if you ever get the chance to talk to folks who turned out at our rallies and crowded along a rope line in a high school gym, or saw folks working late in a campaign office in some tiny county far away from home, you'll discover something else. You'll hear the determination in the voice of a young field organizer who's working his way through college and wants to make sure every child has that same opportunity.

(APPLAUSE) You'll hear the pride in the voice of a volunteer who's going door to door because her brother was finally hired when the local auto plant added another shift.

(APPLAUSE) You'll hear the deep patriotism in the voice of a military spouse whose working the phones late at night to make sure that no one who fights for this country ever has to fight for a job or a roof over their head when they come home.

(APPLAUSE) That's why we do this. That's what politics can be. That's why elections matter. It's not small, it's big. It's important. Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. We have our own opinions. Each of us has deeply held beliefs. And when we go through tough times, when we make big decisions as a country, it necessarily stirs passions, stirs up controversy. That won't change after tonight, and it shouldn't. These arguments we have are a mark of our liberty. We can never forget that as we speak people in distant nations are risking their lives right now just for a chance to argue about the issues that matter, the chance to cast their ballots like we did today.

(APPLAUSE) But despite all our differences, most of us share certain hopes for America's future. We want our kids to grow up in a country where they have access to the best schools and the best teachers.

(APPLAUSE) A country that lives up to its legacy as the global leader in technology and discovery and innovation, with all the good jobs and new businesses that follow. We want our children to live in an America that isn't burdened by debt, that isn't weakened by inequality, that isn't threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.

(APPLAUSE) We want to pass on a country that's safe and respected and admired around the world, a nation that is defended by the strongest military on earth and the best troops this - this world has ever known.

(APPLAUSE) But also a country that moves with confidence beyond this time of war, to shape a peace that is built on the promise of freedom and dignity for every human being. We believe in a generous America, in a compassionate America, in a tolerant America, open to the dreams of an immigrant's daughter who studies in our schools and pledges to our flag.

(APPLAUSE) To the young boy on the south side of Chicago who sees a life beyond the nearest street corner.

(APPLAUSE) To the furniture worker's child in North Carolina who wants to become a doctor or a scientist, an engineer or an entrepreneur, a diplomat or even a president - that's the future we hope for. That's the vision we share. That's where we need to go: forward.

(APPLAUSE) That's where we need to go. Now, we will disagree, sometimes fiercely, about how to get there. As it has for more than two centuries, progress will come in fits and starts. It's not always a straight line. It's not always a smooth path. By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won't end all the gridlock or solve all our problems or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward. But that common bond is where we must begin. Our economy is recovering. A decade of war is ending. A long campaign is now over.

 (APPLAUSE) And whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you, I have learned from you, and you've made me a better president. And with your stories and your struggles, I return to the White House more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead.

(APPLAUSE) Tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual. (APPLAUSE) You elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. And in the coming weeks and months, I am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together: reducing our deficit, reforming our tax code, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil. We've got more work to do.

(APPLAUSE) OBAMA: But that doesn't mean your work is done. The role of citizen in our democracy does not end with your vote. America's never been about what can be done for us. It's about what can be done by us together through the hard and frustrating, but necessary work of self- government. That's the principle we were founded on.

(APPLAUSE) This country has more wealth than any nation, but that's not what makes us rich. We have the most powerful military in history, but that's not what makes us strong. Our university, our culture are all the envy of the world, but that's not what keeps the world coming to our shores. What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on Earth. The belief that our destiny is shared, that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations. The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights. And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That's what makes America great.

(APPLAUSE) I am hopeful tonight because I've seen the spirit at work in America. I've seen it in the family business whose owners would rather cut their own pay than lay off their neighbors, and in the workers who would rather cut back their hours than see a friend lose a job. I've seen it in the soldiers who reenlist after losing a limb and in those SEALs who charged up the stairs into darkness and danger because they knew there was a buddy behind them watching their back.

(APPLAUSE) I've seen it on the shores of New Jersey and New York, where leaders from every party and level of government have swept aside their differences to help a community rebuild from the wreckage of a terrible storm.

(APPLAUSE) And I saw just the other day, in Mentor, Ohio, where a father told the story of his 8-year-old daughter, whose long battle with leukemia nearly cost their family everything had it not been for health care reform passing just a few months before the insurance company was about to stop paying for her care.

(APPLAUSE) I had an opportunity to not just talk to the father, but meet this incredible daughter of his. And when he spoke to the crowd listening to that father's story, every parent in that room had tears in their eyes, because we knew that little girl could be our own. And I know that every American wants her future to be just as bright. That's who we are. That's the country I'm so proud to lead as your president.

(APPLAUSE) And tonight, despite all the hardship we've been through, despite all the frustrations of Washington, I've never been more hopeful about our future.

(APPLAUSE) I have never been more hopeful about America. And I ask you to sustain that hope. I'm not talking about blind optimism, the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. I'm not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight. I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.

(APPLAUSE) America, I believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try.

(APPLAUSE) I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We're not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America.

(APPLAUSE) And together with your help and God's grace we will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on Earth. Thank you, America. God bless you. God bless these United States.
-President Barack Obama

Congratulations to Mr president (Barack Obama). This shows that his really a leader. I new right from time that Mr Obama is going to finish that guy called bussinessman (Mitt Romney). Now come back home... Nigeria rulers as to see the way they conduct an election, is free and fair. Our rulers will be shooting people on election day. Too bad for Nigeria rulers. I called them rulers because they are rulling people to know where. They suppose to be leading our country Nigeria to better future, instead they are rulling Nigeria the way they like. How many Nigeria rulers we don put there wen talk say God bless Nigeria when making speech? Our ruller we be making speech and at the same time thinking how to steal our money. Once again, Mr Barack Obama, three gun shot for you.....

Nice speech but I don't know why I'm not excited about his being re-elected..

Its the passion with which he speaks,he convinces peaople just from the passion in his voice not just the content of his speech. Give that speech to a certain president in Nigeria and they'll make u drowsy. Our speakers employ their guards to write speeches for them and if that's not worse enough, they go to the podium with the speech. No such thing as rehearsals. Obama is a passionate speaker and even if he were taking nonsense I would root for him anytime

President Obama reminds me so much of Martin Luther King. He's such a powerful orator and is very good at what he does.

A big congrats to him and to the entire American people.

I only wish my dear country, Nigeria, would take a cue from this, and elect people based on their credibility and not based on their ethnicity or religion.

The President won reelection for three reasons:

• The incumbent bonus. He lost it in the first debate, then gradually won it back during the subsequent debates and his response to super storm Sandy.

• The “fundamentals” – the data rational voters are supposed to base their decision on – were not great for him, but still favored him over his opponent. Or, as Vice President Biden put it: “Osama is dead, and GM is alive”.

• He did – and this is the frigging point of this diary – set himself apart from every Democratic nominee since LBJ by never letting a Romney lie get out there without striking back immediately, mercilessly, and with overwhelming force. By not shying away from savaging his opponent at every opening. School of Paul Wellstone. School of Howard Dean.

That last point is no small feat for a President who almost staked his legacy on the appearance of bipartisanship.

Anonymous said...

For an entire generation, the psychological subtext to Presidential politics would become, "We tried something different once, but look how that turned out." The loss would have become a loss for future black Presidential candidates, and also (potentially) for females, Latinos, Asians, gays, et cetera.

Honestly Black people need to see beyond the colour of this man! Everyone is rejoicing that he won the election but all those rejoicing have you read any of his policies?

If you are Christian and you support Mr Obama you are supporting someone that approved 'Gay Marriages.' I am not homophobic because the bible says we must LOVE all but we should not support evil and something that is against the word of God should not be supported.

November 2011 Mr Obama also approved SODOMY & BEASTIALITY in other words 'sleeping with animals is okay and no longer a crime!'

Repeal of Sodomy Article- (Please google! It was also on BBC NEWS LONDON)

You don’t need religion/God to know this is BAD! What’s next to be acceptable? Child molestation?

In a 2004 interview with Cathleen Falsani, Obama said, “I believe that there are many paths to the same place.” Obama also said, “All people of faith—Christians, Jews, Muslims, animists, everyone knows the same God.”

But Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Nowhere in the Bible is there a reference to Obama’s “many paths.”

Jesus warned us not to be deceived by those who would lead us astray. “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.”

Jesus is the narrow gate and the only way to heaven. Obama’s view says, in effect, that Jesus’ death on the cross was unnecessary since there are multiple ways to God. The many paths of Obama are in reality just the broad road to destruction.

There are so many ANTI-CHRISTIANITY policies and most Christians are rejoicing as if Jesus has returned. I have no business with the election as I am from London (what do we care), however too much of what is going on in the world especially in the states is in the book of Daniel. (The anti-Christianity policies not Mr Obama being elected)

Note: I am not calling him the anti Christ

How many of you know about the "Stimulus Bill"

A provision in the new stimulus bill would ban money meant for school renovations from being used on facilities that allow "religious worship." This provision is simply religious discrimination, punishing schools for allowing religious groups to meet on their campuses. “Religious groups” could include religious clubs, churches that meet at schools on Sundays, and also universities with divinity programs.

There are so many policies that is contrary to the Word of God and it amazes me the amount of people jubilating! Yes we have heard it over and over again but fact is we are living in the last days...... The book of Daniel talks about us accepting and encouraging wrong values and supporting evil?! CHRISTIANS WAKE UP! Don't follow trend or loose focus!

Moral of the story see beyond Mr Obama's skin colour. Wake up to the truth and what's really going on.

The end is real!

Face value I am happy to have a black president but unfortunately it is the detriment of our future and spiritual growth!

I am trying to make heaven!!! That over every damn thing!!!

I hope Linda post this!

I like what he said abt what makes America strong is d bond dat binds a diverse people. This is what would make Biafra great. Our tolerance of nonindegenes and elimination of quota system and federal character. We would get rid of d Eni-Njoku/Biobaku problem dat hampers progress in education when we get Nigeria behind us. We believe in fair play, equal opportunity, hardwork, and most importantly God. These are values that the Nigerian state is against. We would transcend and surpass Nigeria and the rest of Africa that choose the same wrong headed approach to nation building.

We are Biafrans, citizens of the greatest nation in the world and God is with us.

What people should realize is that hedidnt read the speech, he only practiced it prior, and came out and spoke from the top of His head, now thats a president!

I'm Nigerian-American living in the US, but I can understand why the world is captivated by it all, especially Nigeria, because it shows what we can do as people some day, a clear and honest election process, that all can see an evaluate.

Obama's campaign raised its money through sending us several emails a day asking for $3, $5, whatever we could give. Romney's campaign would hold 1 fundraising dinner, and make $5million. In the past month, they outraised Obama's team by $42million! So we can see that even the person with the most money didnt win, the person who did, won on principle.

I am extremely proud that my man won, and that I donated to his cause several times. To those who wanted the other guy to win, know that all political outcomes pass through God’s filter before man’s ballots and the electoral college.

We need to return to a dual party nation. This will further encourage free and fair election as its easier to choose between two variables and also quick to know the obvious results when one party or candidate is known to be more popular than the other like with SDP and NRC. May M.K.O Abiola RIP

"I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We're not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America" i am still looking forward to see political leaders who will truly love this our country Nigeria.

This speech is emotional but intellectual! GEJ gave a not so smart emotional speech and won the hearts of many people! What a Nation! Nigerians I hail you!

Rejoice with those who have a reason to rejoice. Only then will God have mercy and bless you too. Errrmmmm......after you have repented sha. Cos rejoicing in sin no go make God look ur side oh.

Not beefing him,
congrats to him,
but do guys know that Adolf Hitler was also a very excellent orator?
And guess what happened, his foreign policies led the world into WW II.
Just pray Obama's middle East policy doesn't lead us into WW III, cause a nuclear Iran in the hands of Khameini and Ahmedinejad will just be TROUBLE!!!!!

I just love how people who don't even LIVE IN AMERICA are so damn concerned about Obama's policies and calling him the anti-Christ. Una wait until na black man wey be leader of the world to call out the anti-Christ, Abi? If Obama is an anti-Christ I wonder what the heck Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot who killed 1-3 million of his people are to you.

Concern yourselves with what is happening in Nigeria where progress is on a permanent vacation and stop worrying about Obama.

In America, there is such a thing as the SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE! Obama cannot rule this country based on his Christian principles, he rules this country based ON THE LAW on the land. This is why Nigeria is in a heap of trouble with all your over emotional, religious fanatical, tribalistic blind view points!

Obama supports gay marriage, oh big fkg deal! How does gay person getting married affect your life personally? There was a time that interracial couples couldn't get married by law too. The gays are fight to be married because there many civic benefits that heterosexuals enjoy that they don't and they are paying the same taxes. How is that fair? This is what the fight is about for them and should be for all AMERICANS!!! THERE SHOULDN'T BE ONE SET OF LAWS FOR SOME PEOPLE AND ANOTHER FOR OTHERS!

I'm so angry that Obama won. I never liked his policies.

Dedetizadora said...

Barack Obama won by a small difference of individual votes. This demonstrates dissatisfaction with his rule of almost half of the American people. I'm hoping, however, for Obama to take the reins of the economy, because U.S. growth produces positive effects in Brazil and much of the world.

Thank you,
Dedetizadora
