The entire speech is excellent. His delivery was nearly flawless. There isn’t a politician in America who can match his speaking ability. The man is truly inspiring.
America, we are better than these last eight years. We are a better country than this.
It’s not because John McCain doesn’t care. It’s because John McCain doesn’t get it.
In Washington, they call this the Ownership Society, but what it really means is – you’re on your own.
Well it’s time for them to own their failure. It’s time for us to change America.
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.
So I’ve got news for you, John McCain. We all put our country first.
…Because if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.
You make a big election about small things.
America, we cannot turn back. Not with so much work to be done. Not with so many children to educate, and so many veterans to care for. Not with an economy to fix and cities to rebuild and farms to save. Not with so many families to protect and so many lives to mend. America, we cannot turn back. We cannot walk alone. At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to march into the future. Let us keep that promise – that American promise – and in the words of Scripture hold firmly, without wavering, to the hope that we confess.
