Barack Obama The Future of America Its About YOU

Barack Obama Acceptance Speech

Barack Obama Acceptance Speech

Thank you, everybody.

To Chairman Dean and my great friend Dick Durbin, and to all my fellow citizens of this great nation, with profound gratitude and great humility, I accept your nomination for presidency of the United States.

We meet at one of those defining moments, a moment when our nation is at war, our economy is in turmoil, and the American promise has been threatened…

America, we are better than these last eight years. We are a better country than this.

Tonight, I say to the people of America, to Democrats and Republicans and Independents across this great land – Enough. This moment… this election is our chance to keep, in the 21st century, the American promise alive.

The record’s clear: John McCain has voted with George Bush 90 percent of the time. I don’t know about you, but I am not ready to take a 10 percent chance on change.

Now, I don’t believe that Senator McCain doesn’t care what’s going on in the lives of Americans; I just think he doesn’t know. Why else would he define middle-class as someone making under $5 million a year? How else could he propose hundreds of billions in tax breaks for big corporations and oil companies, but not one penny of tax relief to more than 100 million Americans? You are on your own.

It’s time for us to change America. And that’s why I’m running for president of the United States.

I intend to win this election and keep our promise alive as president of the United States.

What is that American promise? It’s a promise that says each of us has the freedom to make of our own lives what we will, but that we also have obligations to treat each other with dignity and respect.

Ours is a promise that says government cannot solve all our problems, but it should protect us from harm and provide every child a decent education; keep our water clean and our toys safe; invest in new schools, and new roads, and science, and technology.

Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who’s willing to work. That’s the promise of America, the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation. That’s the promise we need to keep. That’s the change we need right now.

And for the sake of our economy, our security, and the future of our planet, I will set a clear goal as president: In 10 years, we will finally end our dependence on oil from the Middle East.

 And I’ll invest $150 billion over the next decade in affordable, renewable sources of energy – wind power, and solar power and the next generation of biofuels – an investment that will lead to new industries and 5 million new jobs that pay well and can’t be outsourced.

Now is the time to provide every child a world-class education, because it will take nothing less to compete in the global economy.

Now is the time to finally keep the promise of affordable, accessible health care for every single American. if you have health care, my plan will lower your premiums. If you don’t, you’ll be able to get the same kind of coverage that members of Congress give themselves.

 

John McCain likes to say that he’ll follow bin Laden to the gates of Hell, but he won’t even follow him to the cave where he lives. even after we learned that Iraq has $79 billion in surplus while we are wallowing in deficit, John McCain stands alone in his stubborn refusal to end a misguided war.

That’s not the judgment we need; that won’t keep America safe. We need a president who can face the threats of the future, not keep grasping at the ideas of the past.

As commander-in-chief, I will never hesitate to defend this nation, but I will only send our troops into harm’s way with a clear mission and a sacred commitment to give them the equipment they need in battle and the care and benefits they deserve when they come home. I will end this war in Iraq responsibly

The times are too serious, the stakes are too high – patriotism has no party … I’ve got news for you, John McCain: We all put our country first.

I get it. I realize that I am not the likeliest candidate for this office. I don’t fit the typical pedigree, and I haven’t spent my career in the halls of Washington.

But I stand before you tonight because all across America something is stirring. What the naysayers don’t understand is that this election has never been about me; it’s about you.

IT’S ABOUT YOU.

Enough,” to the politics of the past, the greatest risk we can take is to try the same, old politics with the same, old players and expect a different result. at defining moments like this one, the change we need doesn’t come from Washington. Change comes to Washington.

Change happens – change happens because the American people demand it, because they rise up and insist on new ideas and new leadership, a new politics for a new time.

America, this is one of those moments.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.

Bill Clinton DNC Speech Securing Americas Future

Bill Clinton's Speech at DNC 2008

Bill Clinton

” I am honored to be here tonight to support Barack Obama. What a year we Democrats have had. 

I’ll do my best to elect Barack Obama. I want all of you who supported Hillary to vote for Barack Obama in November. Here’s why. Our nation is in trouble on two fronts: The American Dream is under siege at home, and America’s leadership in the world has been weakened. Clearly, the job of the next President is to rebuild the American Dream and restore America‘s standing in the world.

Everything I learned in my eight years as President and in the work I’ve done since, in America and across the globe, has convinced me that Barack Obama is the man for this job. He has a remarkable ability to inspire people, to raise our hopes and rally us to high purpose. He has the intelligence and curiosity every successful President needs. His policies on the economy, taxes, health care and energy are far superior to the Republican alternatives. He has shown a clear grasp of our foreign policy and national security challenges, and a firm commitment to repair our badly strained military.
With Joe Biden’s experience and wisdom, supporting Barack Obama’s proven understanding, insight, and good instincts, America will have the national security leadership we need.
Barack Obama is ready to lead America and restore American leadership in the world. Ready to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Barack Obama is ready to be President of the United States.
Barack Obama knows that America cannot be strong abroad unless we are strong at home. People the world over have always been more impressed by the power of our example than by the example of our power. America can do better  And Barack Obama will – but first we have to elect him. The choice is clear.
In spite of all the evidence, their candidate is promising more of the same: More tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans that will swell the deficit, increase inequality, and weaken the economy. More band-aids for health care that will enrich insurance companies, impoverish families and increase the number of uninsured. More going it alone in the world.
My fellow Democrats, sixteen years ago, you gave me the profound honor to lead our party to victory and to lead our nation to a new era of peace and broadly shared prosperity. Together, we prevailed in a campaign in which the Republicans said I was too young and too inexperienced to be Commander in Chief. Sound familiar? It didn’t work in 1992, because we were on the right side of history. And it won’t work in 2008, because Barack Obama is on the right side of history.
Barack Obama will lead us away from division and fear of the last eight years back to unity and hope. If, like me, you still believe America must always be a place called Hope, then join Hillary, Chelsea and me in making Senator Barack Obama the next President of the United States “

Hillary Clinton Says No Way No How No McCain

Hilary Clinton's Speech No Way - No How - No McCain

Hilary Clinton

Hillary Clinton’s Speech at DNC Convention:

” My friends, it is time to take back the country we love. The time is now to unite as a single party with a single purpose ;  We are on the same team. This is a fight for the futureAnd it’s a fight we must win.

NO WAY. NO HOW. NO McCAIN.

Barack Obama is my candidate. And he must be our president !

I will always be grateful to everyone from all fifty states, Puerto Rico and the territories, who joined our campaign on behalf of all those people left out and left behind by the Bush Administration.

After eight years of George Bush, people are hurting at home, and our standing has eroded around the world. We have a lot of work ahead.

I ran for president to renew the promise of America. To rebuild the middle class and sustain the American Dream, to provide the opportunity to work hard and have that work rewarded, to save for college, a home and retirement, to afford the gas and groceries and still have a little left over each month.

To promote a clean energy economy that will create millions of green collar jobs.

To create a health care system that is universal, high quality, and affordable.

To create a world class education system and make college affordable again.

To bring fiscal sanity back to Washington and make our government an instrument of the public good, not of private plunder.

To restore America’s standing in the world, to end the war in Iraq, bring our troops home and honor their service by caring for our veterans.

And to join with our allies to confront our shared challenges, from poverty and genocide to terrorism and global warming.

Most of all, I ran to stand up for all those who have been invisible to their government for eight long years.

Those are the reasons I ran for president. Those are the reasons I support Barack Obama. And those are the reasons you should too.

This won’t be easy. Progress never is. But it will be impossible if we don’t fight to put a Democrat in the White House.

We need a President who understands that the genius of America has always depended on the strength and vitality of the middle class.

Barack Obama knows government must be about “We the people” not “We the favored few.” He’ll transform our energy agenda by creating millions of green jobs and building a new, clean energy future. He’ll make sure that middle class families get the tax relief they deserve. And I can’t wait to watch Barack Obama sign a health care plan into law that covers every single American.

Barack Obama will end the war in Iraq responsibly and bring our troops home _a first step to repairing our alliances around the world.

We don’t need four more years … of the last eight years.

More economic stagnation … and less affordable health care.

More high gas prices … and less alternative energy.

More jobs getting shipped overseas … and fewer jobs created here.

More skyrocketing debt … home foreclosures … and mounting bills that are crushing our middle class families.

More war … less diplomacy.

More of a government where the privileged come first … and everyone else comes last.

We have to get going by electing Barack Obama president. We don’t have a moment to lose or a vote to spare. Nothing less than the fate of our nation and the future of our children hang in the balance.

Thank you so much. God bless America and Godspeed to you all.

Michelle Obama DNC Speech The World As It Is Just Wont Do

Michelle Obama - "The World As It Is Just Won't Do"

Michelle Obama -

“… I come here as a Mom whose girls are the heart of my heart and the center of my world — they’re the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning, and the last thing I think about when I go to bed at night. Their future — and all our children’s future — is my stake in this election.

Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect..

And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them… I believe — that America should be a place where you can make it if you try.

The world as it is and The world as it should be – All too often, we accept the distance between the two, and settle for the world as it is — even when it doesn’t reflect our values and aspirations. We know what our world should look like. We know what fairness and justice and opportunity look like. And Barack urges us to believe in ourselves — to find the strength within ourselves to strive for the world as it should be. And isn’t that the great American story?

People like Hillary Clinton, who put those 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling, so that all can dream a little bigger and aim a little higher.

People like Joe Biden, who’s never forgotten where he came from, and never stopped fighting for folks who work long hours and face long odds and need someone on their side again.

All of us driven by a simple belief that THE WORLD AS IT IS JUST WON’T DO — that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.

That’s why Barack’s running — to end the war in Iraq responsibly, to build an economy that lifts every family, to make health care available for every American, and to make sure every child in this nation gets a world class education all the way from preschool to college. That’s what Barack Obama will do as President of the United States of America.

Millions of Americans know that Barack understands their dreams; that Barack will fight for people like them; and that Barack will finally bring the change we need..

So tonight let us stand together to elect Barack Obama President of the United States of America.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.”
