    New York Daily News ^ | Wednesday, June 16th 2010 | Joshua Greenman
    Around six months in, President Obama's supporters came to terms with the fact that he couldn't walk on water. Today, he's struggling to keep the crude oil off his nicely pressed suit. Given that challenge, Obama succeeded in his Oval Office speech last night, the first of his presidency. This was the President in his element: Framing a problem, rejecting partisan extremes, pushing forward with a clear vision and what sounded like common-sense solutions. He was focused, even a little feisty - and for the first time in weeks, didn't seem to be on the defensive. His update on the...
  • Obama's Speech Simply Politicizes BP Oil Disaster

    Last night from the Oval Office, President Obama made what was to be his “leadership” speech about how he has always been in control of the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Yet 57 days into the worst environmental catastrophe that the United States has ever faced, in which an uncontrolled oil leak is literally gushing millions of barrels of crude into the waters of the gulf, this president decided instead to further pursue his radical agenda of forcing socialism and huge tax increases down the collective throat of all Americans. The speech, 18 minutes long, was about...

    For all his reputation as the nation's Top Talker, Barack Obama took his sweet time giving a maiden Oval Office address to the country. And waiting another nearly 60 days to speak nationally about the oil spill that’s become the worst environmental disaster in the nation’s history. Obama, the first modern president to pass his first full year in office without addressing the country from his historic desk, had the setting right. Just back from a day-and-a-half on the gulf coast listening, reassuring, talking tourism, eating seafood. He wore the proper suit, had the requisite flags and family photos in...

    President Obama's Oval Office speech last night focused on the Gulf oil catastrophe, but its true purpose was impossible to miss: shoring up the president's tanking popularity. Some 57 days after the BP oil rig blew -- triggering an underwater oil gusher that's yet to be contained -- a majority of Americans, polls show, think Obama's been too detached from the crisis. Thus, the president is taking a new tack: huffing and puffing. "Tonight, I've returned from a trip to the Gulf Coast to speak with you about the battle we're waging against an oil spill that is assaulting our...

    PENSACOLA, Fla. – Laying the groundwork for an evening speech to the nation, President Barack Obama walked a pristine stretch of sand on Florida's shoreline Tuesday and pledged to "fight back with everything we've got" against the spreading oil lurking offshore. In a speech at Pensacola's Naval Air Station, Obama took note of the painful contrasts around him: "The sand is white. The water's blue," he said. And yet, he added, "those plumes of oil are off the coast."

    The Guardian ^ | 12/18/2009 | Suzanne Goldenberg and Allegra Stratton
    Barack Obama stepped into the chaotic final hours of the Copenhagen summit today saying he was convinced the world could act "boldly and decisively" on climate change. But his speech offered no indication America was ready to embrace bold measures, after world leaders had been working desperately against the clock to try to paper over an agreement to prevent two years of wasted effort — and a 10-day meeting — from ending in total collapse. Obama, who had been skittish about coming to Copenhagen at all unless it could be cast as a foreign policy success, looked visibly frustrated as...

With over 3,500 Americans killed or wounded, the surprise attack by the Imperial Japanese on Pearl Harbor was an attempt to break the American will and destroy our Pacific Fleet. They succeeded in doing neither.

Alas, he was not up to the challenge. He may want to go back to Georgetown. During the dog days of Vietnam, President Lyndon Johnson could only give speeches on military bases.

In a post-racial presidency, charges of racism are the new last refuge of scoundrels.When Joe Wilson, the decorum-challenged South Carolina Republican, reacted to President Obama's assertion that there was nothing in health care legislation giving coverage to illegal aliens by shouting "You lie!" he knew, as his critics ignore, that there was nothing requiring proof of citizenship either. A nonpartisan Congressional Research Service study found that the House health care bill at that moment did not restrict illegal immigrants...

But both said it’s a long road to go from words in a speech to words in bill.

    During his speech, President Obama told two heartwrenching stories of medical patients who had had their health insurance unfairly ripped away from them with devastating consequences. The first is as follows: One man from Illinois lost his coverage in the middle of chemotherapy because his insurer found that he hadn't reported gallstones that he didn't even know about. They delayed his treatment, and he died because of it. This is infuriating, if true. But is it? Unless Obama is talking about a case other than that of Otto Raddatz, whose sister Peggy testified before Congress on his behalf, then, no....

    When the president takes to the airways he might be more specific, but he will undoubtedly weave in many of the claims he has used before. The problem is most of those claims are bogus. Some of them are lies, others are factually true, but when implemented will turn out to be false. For example, the POTUS claims there is a clause in the house bill that that bans Illegal immigrants from being in the public option, he is 100% correct. But there is no penalty for including illegal's, nor is there any verbiage mentioning enforcing that clause, so for...

The Monroe-Woodbury School District is also recording the speech for potential viewing in kindergarten through eighth grade, while giving high school teachers the option of showing the speech live if it's pertinent to their courses.
