Transcript of Obama's speech

SPEAKER: PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

[*] OBAMA: Thank you. Thank you.

CROWD: Obama! Obama! Obama! Obama!

My fellow citizens: I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors.

I thank President Bush for his service to our nation...

(APPLAUSE)

... as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath.

OBAMA: The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.

OBAMA: So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Americans.

That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age.

Homes have been lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly, our schools fail too many, and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.

OBAMA: These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable, but no less profound, is a sapping of confidence across our land; a nagging fear that America's decline is inevitable, that the next generation must lower its sights.

Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real, they are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this America: They will be met.

(APPLAUSE)

On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

OBAMA: On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics.

We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.

(APPLAUSE)

In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of shortcuts or settling for less.

OBAMA: It has not been the path for the faint-hearted, for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame.

Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things -- some celebrated, but more often men and women obscure in their labor -- who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.

For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life. For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the West, endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.

OBAMA: For us, they fought and died in places Concord and Gettysburg; Normandy and Khe Sahn.

Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.

This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions -- that time has surely passed.

OBAMA: Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.

(APPLAUSE)

For everywhere we look, there is work to be done.

The state of our economy calls for action: bold and swift. And we will act not only to create new jobs but to lay a new foundation for growth.

We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.

We will restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality...

(APPLAUSE)

... and lower its costs.

OBAMA: We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.

All this we can do. All this we will do.

Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short, for they have forgotten what this country has already done, what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose and necessity to courage.

What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them, that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long, no longer apply.

OBAMA: The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works, whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified.

Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end.

And those of us who manage the public's knowledge will be held to account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.

Nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched.

OBAMA: But this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control. The nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous.

The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our gross domestic product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on the ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart -- not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.

(APPLAUSE)

As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals.

Our founding fathers faced with perils that we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations.

OBAMA: Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake.

And so, to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and we are ready to lead once more.

(APPLAUSE)

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with the sturdy alliances and enduring convictions.

OBAMA: They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use. Our security emanates from the justness of our cause; the force of our example; the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

We are the keepers of this legacy, guided by these principles once more, we can meet those new threats that demand even greater effort, even greater cooperation and understanding between nations. We'll begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people and forge a hard- earned peace in Afghanistan.

OBAMA: With old friends and former foes, we'll work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat and roll back the specter of a warming planet.

We will not apologize for our way of life nor will we waver in its defense.

And for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that, "Our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken. You cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you."

(APPLAUSE)

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness.

We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and nonbelievers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth.

And because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.

OBAMA: To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.

To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict or blame their society's ills on the West, know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy.

To those...

(APPLAUSE)

To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.

(APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds.

And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to the suffering outside our borders, nor can we consume the world's resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.

As we consider the road that unfolds before us, we remember with humble gratitude those brave Americans who, at this very hour, patrol far-off deserts and distant mountains. They have something to tell us, just as the fallen heroes who lie in Arlington whisper through the ages.

We honor them not only because they are guardians of our liberty, but because they embody the spirit of service: a willingness to find meaning in something greater than themselves.

OBAMA: And yet, at this moment, a moment that will define a generation, it is precisely this spirit that must inhabit us all.

For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies.

It is the kindness to take in a stranger when the levees break; the selflessness of workers who would rather cut their hours than see a friend lose their job which sees us through our darkest hours.

It is the firefighter's courage to storm a stairway filled with smoke, but also a parent's willingness to nurture a child, that finally decides our fate.

Our challenges may be new, the instruments with which we meet them may be new, but those values upon which our success depends, honesty and hard work, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism -- these things are old.

OBAMA: These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history.

What is demanded then is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility -- a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character than giving our all to a difficult task.

This is the price and the promise of citizenship.

OBAMA: This is the source of our confidence: the knowledge that God calls on us to shape an uncertain destiny.

This is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall. And why a man whose father less than 60 years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath.

(APPLAUSE)

So let us mark this day in remembrance of who we are and how far we have traveled.

In the year of America's birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by nine campfires on the shores of an icy river.

OBAMA: The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood.

At a moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words be read to the people:

"Let it be told to the future world that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet it."

America, in the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words; with hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come; let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.

Thank you. God bless you.

(APPLAUSE)

And God bless the United States of America.

(APPLAUSE)

Some things that jumped out at me as I listened...
our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age.

And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.


I recalled Constance Cumbey's book when I heard these phrases from our newly elected president.

There are no innocent uh-oh's in inauguration speeches. Each phrase is carefully worded.
Therefore, I feel that Obama was sending a message loud and clear to Oprah's type of spiritualists... He is on track with them.

Today the actor, Forrest Whitaker, was on the Oprah show.

Oprah said he had sent her an email regarding Obama. It said, "THE LIGHT OF THE NEW AGE IS HERE!"

That really, really freaked me out!!!

And, especially since from the beginning of Obama's campaign, Oprah introduced him as, "THE ONE."

Together with many other things (people in foreign countries calling him "The Messiah", etc., etc., etc.), I admit it's scaring me silly!!!

What does this mean ? Currently what rightful place is science being denied?

....and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness....

Somehow I find this sentence doesn't fit properly with me, I don't know why it just stuck out as not quite right, seems like a muslim kind of statement to me. Appealing to ones pursuit of happiness and reward in this life.

And those of us who manage the public's knowledge will be held to account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.


But this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control. The nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous.


New laws coming here for more controls, I feel these kind of arguments could be expanded upon to ultimately justify the introduction of the Mark of the Beast system. The Mark of the Beast system could be sold as a leveling (fairn) type of financial system, where ALL are under the same watchful eye (rich and poor), no one is favored and no one can use their wealth and power to escape the law. Under a Mark system all would be treated exactly the same (citizen xxxxx) and all financial details would be clearly exposed and recorded for everyone by a computer system controlled by the government, stopping any corruption. Total transparency as the GOVERNMENT assumes its place as God over America, all will be answerable to almighty Washington.

Test the spirits. Obama speaks of several in his speech that calls us to a one world government of socialism and no tolerance for "childish" things like having our own opinions as only his way WILL BE DONE. Several times he is commanding in tone that it will be done; no discussion. He wants to be leader of the world, he is handing over our military for slaughter to appease the Muslims, and our government will take over farms for food production for the world, freedom of speech is only for the tolerant, and it will be hateful and illegal to proclaim God's word that people are sinners destined for hell without Christ, the only way. Read the warnings God gave to Israel when they asked for a king. I believe we are repeating that part of scripture now. Our nation has totally rejected God as our king and God gave us Obama to judge us.

I know! I was watching her too, because I feel we need to monitor what she is saying to millions, she also said twice that she was vibrating (is that a good thing?) all day in his presence having sensory overload, Forest also said that when he sees the Obamas kissing, he knows that we're going to be ok, we are going to be healed. Oprah said, 'He makes me want to be a better person- and in turn, a better nation.' Gayle said, 'Not only does he hear us, he feels us, he speaks to my soul. And lastly Gayle said, 'The world is with us.'

One of Oprah's favorite parts of his speech was that "the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace." Doesn't that sound like the tower of babel all over again?

I've felt for some time the desire to not listen to Obama speak, and I've been only reading his speeches. (I actually read them to my wife - she doesn't want to hear him either.)

I don't know if its mind control or not, and I don't think God would allow me to be drawn in, but I just don't want to hear the man.

Love in Christ,
Mark

I watched the ceremony from over here in the UK. I heard all the words, again I agree that they are heavily chosen to send a certain type of message. I agree with most other posters here.

What I felt watching the ceremony was some sort of spirit reaching out and trying to tap into the emotions, I was very aware of it happening and had to counter act it with my head, years of trying to make my emotions my slave and not my master.

It is a powerful spirit and this generation is very vulneralbe to it as we have been conditioned by music, films and the media. Lots of christian music is made the same way, to take into the emotions rather than the spirit.

When I looked at that crowd I see desperate people looking for a hope, many of these people it is true do not want to know the Lord Jesus, but also many of them have had The Lord Jesus grossly misrepresented to them by the likes of RW and his flunkeys.

We must remeber that it is only Gods grace and mercy that allows us to sit here in the light able to see the truth, we must pray that others will also recieve Gods mercy and come to trust in Jesus alone and not the arm of flesh.

No Commas in the listing of the various faiths in the U.S.A

Taken from:
http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/024513.php

Noticing something VERY odd from the written text of Obama's speech. The speech reads: " We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and nonbelievers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth."

What's immediately odd about this statement is not just the reference to non believers, but also the odd kind of pairing or linking of faiths. Notice how Obama lists the various faiths which make up the U.S.A. When most people list something they insert commas. But there is no comma between Christian and Muslim or Jew and Hindu.

Obama, however, makes a specific use of the comma which links or pairing certain faiths with one another. Notice he links Christians with Muslims and Jews with Hindus. The linking of these rather odd pairs is very odd indeed.

Those of us who have a healthy respect for the Christian faith acknowledge the roots of our faith as being taken from the Jewish faith. We tend to refer to our Christian faith and it's roots as a Judaic/ Christian world view. We refer to ourselves as being a people who adhere to Judaic/ Christian value system. We would naturally list the faiths as: Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and non believers.

This pairing of Christians with Muslims was no accidental "slip" of the pen or of the tongue. What's with this pairing of dissimilar faiths? You can be sure this speech was fine tuned to the nth degree and this odd pairing of dissimilar faiths was a very intentional deviation from the norm. What is it really saying to us?

If we wanted to re-write this statement so that it demonstrated a healthy respect for not only for the U.S. Constitution but also for the Judaic/ Christian world view and value system, we'd see something like this:

"The United States is a nation of Christians and Jews, Hindus and Buddhists and Muslims, agnostics and atheists, and all are welcome to enjoy the liberties protected by the Constitution. But whatever their faith, all those who live in this country naturally have a duty to offer their unswerving and undiluted loyalty to the political and legal principles of this country, principles enshrined in the Constitution, and no one should seek to replace that Constitution and the liberties it protects with any narrowly sectarian version of a legal system, prompted by any faith, or unfaith."

The above website has a lot more to say about these missing commas and very odd pairings, indeed.

I would think that the linking of those names of faiths had more to do with alliteration of sounds than anything else. In oration, sounds must be pleasing to the ear. Christian and Muslim have a similarity of rhythm and sound. So do Jew and Hindu. It lends itself to hypnotic head-nodding. :wink:

OBAMA: The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works, whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified.


That definitely through up a red flag for me. The government's job was not to provide families with jobs at a good wage, healthcare, or retirement. The federal government's job was to protect it citizens from foreign invasion and be the conduit through which the states dealt with foreign entities.

The more that we rely on government, the more we are in bondage to it.
