    Among Obama's selling points in 2008 was that he was a great orator, "The greatest since Lincoln" I've seen. Lincoln spoke about "a house divided" (taking the line from the Gospels), and "four score and seven years ago."
    So what have been Obama's great oratorical lines?
    "They bitterly cling to their guns and religion"
    "I've visiited all 57 states now."
    "Take off your bedroom slippers and put on your marching shoes."

    Any other great Obama lines from "the greatest orator since Abraham Lincoln"?

    Obama isn't even close save for that he might be (or even fostering),hoping for violence so he can suspend certain things as Lincoln did...:eusa_whistle:

    You are leaving out the best orators ( in modern times ), JFK and Ronald Reagan. They could also write well.

    And from Obama's mouth to our ears:


    "No, no. I have been practicing...I bowled a 129. It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something." --making an off-hand joke during an appearance on "The Tonight Show", March 19, 2009 (Obama later called the head of the Special Olympics to apologize)

    "What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." --in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, who jumped in to correct Obama by saying "your Christian faith," which Obama quickly clarified (Watch video clip)
