His speech will defenitely go down as one of the best speeches in history.
 
He acknowledged the problems of all aspects of America - religion, terrorism, global warming, poverty, war, but instead of treating them as a future menace and a threat to America, he considered them as oppurtunities for the country to enhance it's prosperity. Each & every line of his speech instilled a certain "hope" in the citizens, A hope to overcome the existing problems, a hope to make US an even better nation.
 
His words do not make you feel patriotic, his words make you understand that people are living in US, but as global citizens, that the entire world needs to progress, and not just US.
 
No one's "We can do it !" has inspired people so much as Obama's has.

I am not comparing Obama's speech to Kennedy's or anyone else's, All I am saying is that it will go down as "one of the best" speeches in history.

I actually didn't manage to see the entire speech....LOL....I was away on a work trip and didn't get to see it live....have only seen snippets on the news since....

But I was still impressed.....one of the things that has always impressed me about Obama is this amazing ability he has to inspire while still using such grounded language....his rhetoric or oratory style is not as soaring as the iconic leaders of past like Churchill, Kennedy, MLK....and yet, he still strikes a chord with his audience in his own way.

It's as if he inspires us WHILE giving us a reality check at the same time.....and the way he does it MAKES you want to believe in him AND  a better future.

One of my fav. bits from the speech was the part where he said that we needed to grow up as a nation.....and it is so true! I also liked the way he said that respect is earned and America has to earn that respect again.

I know that these times are some of the worst in our generation, I don't expect miracles from Obama either....but I still have faith in Obama....that he will bring about some change for the better.


@return_to_hades: Loved what you wrote! Well said!

I liked the fact that his speech was raw and realistic, not glossing over    the current global problems.

I also noticed he took Indira Gandhi's line 'You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist' and paraphrased it to suit his speech. LOL.

Nothing great about his speech. He sounded to come to senses and put effort to mellow down the expectations that people has set on him.
 
A Masiah of HOPE, when talks about how bad condition we are in and its worst then ever and we won't be able to come out it sooner... doesn't reflect honestly.
