    What country is this, a degenerate country that loves mass murdering people
    in Dresden and Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A country that places women above
    men. A country that supplies a country that kills Palestinians with White
    phosphorus. A country that threatens other countries for generating
    peaceful nuclear energy and has frozen their Nuclear weapons program since
    2002. This country loves threatening its citizens right to bear arms. It
    also has the highest prison population in the world. This country sent its
    own citizens countlessly to die in pointless wars for the super rich.

    America a great country…

    This has to be the most important speech in the 21st century. I implore
    you: PLEASE SHARE THIS to all around the world and not just in the United
    States of America.

    One of the best speeches on what it means to be an American and to love
    America and what it stands for. This was a moving tribute to the martyrs
    and heroes of Selma.

    President Obama: When are you going to start requiring the wealthy to
    start paying their fair share of the tax burden?? And…. What are you
    going to do to circumvent those racist laws that are designed to make it
    harder for minorities to vote?? These 2 issues is a burning question
    everyone has been asking for a long time now!!!!

    poll shows discrimination against African-Americans still exists in US by
    some Nazis people.

    History like ours how can America not be the best country?

    Thank you, Barack Obama, for an inspirational address. It brought forth
    truth

    Can we start bringing discussions of our monetary policy back to the table?
    It simply put, is not a fair system. Is it just me, or is the Federal
    Reserve’s target of 2-3% inflation ludicrous? Doing a little math; in just
    ten years the money I save today will be worth just 74-82% of what it is
    today. In thirty years (the life of a home loan), my money is worth just
    40-55%. That is theft any way you define it, and I don’t understand how
    people put up with this. People, please help to put an end to this theft.
    The founding fathers took great effort into putting a sound monetary
    system into place, and it has been completely destroyed. The middle class
    does not benefit from the current system, and is definitely hurt by it.

    How anyone can accuse this man of being unamerican just totally blows me
    away. You have another party Republicans attended the state of the union
    speech given by Benjamin Netanyahu last week. Bibi told the Republicans
    that they must bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb bomb Iran. Which is all on their
    minds then Americans have Obama such a great leader

  15. Jack Spencer says:

    Surely to go down as one of the great speeches in American history.

  16. Roberto Anil says:

    Excellent speech. History can’t be denied. Love conquers hate.
    If you don’t like the President elected for 8 years, why are you listening
    his speech ? it’s amazing what hate can do to the soul of these people. #job
    is not finished.

    The republicans maggots couldn’t make it, they were busy watching 12 years
    a slave with a confused look as to who the bad guys are

  18. Guy New says:

    Obama is half White and half African-African… The only connection he has
    to slavery is his mother’s ancestors who owned slaves and his father’s
    Arab/Muslim ancestors who sold black slaves to the White buyers at the
    port!

  19. Benjamin Shokouhi says:

    Thanks for mentioning Gay people. Love you Mr.President 

  20. Rex Shiva says:

    Negro ego….I only wish Obama did ONE of those things he’s esteeming his
    race with….oh that’s right, he’s really half white!
