All of those idiots who say he cant run this country and say he is dumb well shame on you.And you say its full of lies and dumb well half of the reviews i have read they cant even spell the or stupid right .

Obama is a horrible president. He makes the most stupid mstakes. No offense but honestly ive been studying movements around the world and some secret movements have been made. I think he might start world war three.

This address is historical. President Obama speaks of truth that this nation will stand together and let no man or country tear us apart.

I am an American only because of a historical accident, I was born in Puerto Rico. For many years I resented the cavalier manner the US have treated my country and the rampant racism in this, so tremondously blessed country. For the country to have elected a black man as president, really made me think that, perhaps, America is finally coming of age

The only brick dumb folks .. Are the ones who are idiots to jobs they'll never Have ,Nor their seed after them. Let a black man be a visionary for this Great Country .. And only the racist call it imaginary .. Get use to a Country that has changed and now sows and shows the signs . Balance is what life will always call for .. But an unjust balance tips the scale . Without Our Black President bringing balance to our Land of the free .. We would have tipped over these last 5 years.

Obama is a liar, a coward, and yes ,what most of you think,a puppet.He has alot of potential to be a good president but he got us into a war we can not win,terrorism,terrorism is an idea which means anybody could be a terrorist without a bomb.A terrorist is somebody who does something to inflict,if thats the right word,terror and that is what obama is doing right now.He is causing terror by having the media lie to us and make us believe that everything is just a walk in the park.America needs to wake up.

Can you say, dumb? This is just more lies, from a man who would not know the truth if it bit him in the ass.

Wants to be a good man, but isn't given a chance by anyone who matters.


Thomas Vetto

This fellow is a communist. As an American that is his right. He is Islamic. Again, that is his right. He thinks late-term abortions are a legitimate form of birth control. His right. He mispronounces 'corpsman' and grins as he does it. He bows from the waist to the Saudi king. Is he President? Yes...


Bill Boy

America has deeply rooted hatred for blacks, nothing that a black man says has ever been perceived as visionary, sorry folks but sooner or later history will be seen but not through your bigoted eyes from the jim crow era but from the optimistic eyes of your children and grandchildren, the ones whose minds not poisoned by past racism to the point of no redemption. Thank God your lot is gonna disappear soon, the writing is on the wall.

Same nonsense as always. All talk, arrogant and cowardly man.

People that mention ignorance know nothing but such.... If any of you have deigned to watch the news, you will see we have an open, honest and hard working leader willing to tell us exactly what he wants to do, why he wants to do it, and what his road blocks are. I am so proud that America got out of their hillbilly slump and decided it was time for a real man and a real person to be our president. I do not feel the same shame and embarrassment, nor do I feel obliged to defend Americans when we travel abroad. This was not a mistake. This is America waking up. Goodness bless Obama, for I'll take goodness over God any day.


Chris Timson

Absolute hypocrisy! I find it difficult to even call Obama a man because he has been such a puppet to Hilary Clinton! She has been a true dictatorial master as she has forged her policies and then led Obama (and the American voting fools) to believe they were actually his ideas! Be warned America! You have been fooled not once but twice! Perhaps the thinly veiled sharia law that the Muslms are slowly encroaching upon you will wake you up. But by that point it will be too late. If it isn't already!



March 03, 2013

L..Lee were we reading the same speech ? It was well writen and well delivred. It will take its place in History as he will, its just a pity that such a great Nation rips itself apart . But his speech at least tries to bring it togeather without predudice .


L. Lee

March 03, 2013

Our President should re-read his words. This speech deserves one star, because of the hope of the words, and respect for the office. It will not stand in history as one of the greatest speeches of all time.

Great views. What this country needs to hear. : )


William Nagy

The man is dumb as a brick. He sounds like Fiedel Castro, full of meaningless phrases. He is not qualified to be a president. The bihggest hoax in American history. He could not pass a clearance to be commissioned in the US Army. He was elected by five states. Something is wrong with the system.he didn't write this, he read it on telepromter. Anybody critisizing him is labeled as racist. A president who bows to princes, disrespets the military, "marine corp's" instead of corps, who thinks we have 56 states, pro late term abortion, declares himself "fellow Muslim" in Egypt, has no experience to run a business just critisizes and badmouths America will go down as disgrace to the US. Not worth the paper it is written on.

Found it to say exactly the same thing he always says.


James Marrow

Obama is the first fraud ever to have fooled the takers of America into believing their handouts can survive with a shrinking level of unwilling donors. Every clear-thinker knows this, but others believe naively in this profoundly in-American president.


Al Pett

Informative book, It is so sad that many are blaming President Obama for our nations state, when it comes to unemployment. The war that Bush drove this conutry to the ground with might be considered first. Some people just dont want to give obama a chance...and we all know why!!!

Worst world leader ever. Singlehandedly destroying the greatest nation the world has ever known. The king of all narcissists


Evan Smith

February 07, 2013

I thought this book was pretty good. I found it a little biased, but nonetheless it was an easy read. Oh and Bbtw, Brian Grosvalet, it you want to get your point across, try telling the truth. One more thing; its SPOKEN, not speaken


Darron Russ

February 04, 2013

The President talks but his words are meaningless. They fall on the ears of the millions of unemployed that he created and ignored. When he finally leaves, he will leave devestation and a country facing backruptcy. Where the hope in that?


Bukslav Ro

Truly inspiring, as only a few can be. This President will be inspiring the masses long after he has left his post. History will forget the small minds of his detractors, those who ineffectively try to diminish, disparage and demean him, but his legacy will live on for the ages. History will be his BFF.


Chance Baker

If it werent for the republican filibusters in congress, this president would already be known widely as the best president in our nations history.


Branden Grosvalet

Speaken by a true secular socialist whose hidden agenda is to destroy the principles of our Constitution and bring an end to America's super power status.


Vivian Martin

January 12, 2013

Inspiring....and the very reason why President Obama was reelected. He is such a visionary. If only those against him would put aside their biases and put the same amount of support to help him, they would clearly see that he is not the enemy and that he is trying to help them and this country. The things he is fighting for, he already has so his fight isn't for himself; it's for others. I wish his opposers would just take off their blinders because if they did, then they would experience true freedom.

If you want an accurate revelation of this deceiver you call President watch 2016 the movie it will show all of you that the people who voted for him voted on color, handouts, communist agenda or are just plane ignorant a.k.a are youth of today that get spoon fed the lies of todays media.

It has been aparent that many people do not like President Obama. I do believe that racism, and hate are the motivations. His run for his second term definitly showed how the republicans lied. Its a tragety that this great country has our so called leaders not doing there jobs. Bickering , trying toget their point across, with out understanding that they were elected there to serve the nation not their individual needs, but the whole country !! The people spoke this election in what the majority wanted. I believe that in two years we will speak again, and vote the greedy ones out...God Bless. America

Go suck a d haters.


Maya Goodman

I think that this is an very inspirational book. I also think that people should not just rate this book, leave a comment saying how bad Obama is, and then not even read it! It is not his fault that George Bush Jr. made the economy so poor, and then Obama gad to pick up the pieces, kudos to him.


Sashank Kini

This speech evokes feelings of patriotism and hope with immaculate eloquence. Its no wonder Obama won the elections that year; an important line in the address is 'we need to bring a change' - so you see, despite talking about maintaining harmony and good relations with other nations, Obama still believes that only US will be ble to initiate this change. And Americans are certainly proud bunch with the attitude ' US is the strongest nation in the world', and the prospect of initiating the change being the 'strongest' would have swept them into Obama's support. The speech is very similar to Lincoln's inspiring Gettysberg Address in the sense that national sentiments are evoked and reinded how their should continue working just like their forefathers. Even if you are a Conservative or a strong Obama hater, you have to admit that he can sweep the crowd like Antony did the play ' Julius Caesar'! A fantastic read.

This speech deserves a read. It was very well received in 2009 but in 2012 the hypocrisy and bitter truth is more evident. Sir, this Koolaid makes me feel funny!

He has accomplished so much regardless of the ignoranances, bigotry, and greedy men that has fought him every step of the way. Here is to another 4 years!!!!


Rachel Frink

Wonderfully written. I happened to understand everything which was said, which is unusual because politicians normally use goobiligop speak rendering it impossible to understand or stay awake.

Quite amazing. We've come a long way. The president could have done worse be he chose to give this speech and this country his all. Beautiful.

Donna Bird

It's good to know that every president do their best and has to fight to accomplish their goals . It's about the people not the party. But in the party it is about their wallets than the people.

Horse crap from the mouth of the Manchurian Candidate


Revie Michelle Lang Smith

May 21, 2012

This speech is a nice read after four years. The historical context of four years go must be considered. So much needed to be done for our country,and we are still a work in progress. It will be good to read President Obama's next address once he is re-elected.


Alfredo Alphonzo

Hope and change BS. This political jibberish has no place among a collection of classics. At least give credit to the real author, Jon Favreau.

Vijay Raghavan

Reading your address after 4 years to see what is done and to be done, leaves TOBE DONE is a larger part Mr BO. However, it was an inspiring speech


Cynthia Hale

April 23, 2012

It is apt that this telling speech should find itself on your "Classic" list along with the Communist Manefesto, for this president will go down in the history books as the president who suceeded in his well-documented mission to decimated the United States from within ridding the world of a most uncommon and magnificent experiment in freedom and prosperity it has ever known or will ever see the likes of again.

This should not be on the same list as Shakespeare and Homer. If Obama's Inaugural speech is on this list then where is Lincoln's Gettysburg address?


Elliott Pinkham

A liar from the start ! His own words prove his very lies. Well done !

I and my whole family really are ecstatic that finally this country has a legitimate leader and the bonus is he knows how to speak like an intelligent person should. GOD BLESS AMERiCA!!!!

A fantastically well written image of what it means to live in America. President Obama's image of America's place in the world is coupled with memorable imagery and references to some of America's most distinguishing moments. This inaugural address is an excellent outline of what America's goals need to be, and if you are ever in doubt of the greatness of our country (amidst what appears to be scandalous politics and an overbearing government) then read this, and it will remind you why we, the people of the United States of America, work so hard, and what we should all stand for in this new age.
