Obama at his finest

By Michael J.W. Stickings

This was the best speech I've heard Barack Obama give as president -- possibly the best since January of 2008. Unlike his inaugural address, or even his convention speech, this one really soared and inspired by the end.

I second that -- despite some mild objections to some of the content.

(Well, not quite. I wouldn't go back as far as January 2008. His speech on race was pretty impressive, after all, as were some of his primary-night victory speeches, as was his election-night victory speech, though that had a lot to do with the magnitude of the moment.)

  • It was! and the childish grimacing and posturing from the peanut gallery was a nice counterpoint.

  • Yup! Agreed! Great speech. Hitler gave many great speeches as well. Indeed, Hitler was a better orator than Obama, and he didn't even need a telepromter.
