Here is a partial transcript. Notice anything odd? Never mind the entire speech is progressive tripe this guy has a serious, obviously serious ego issue.
On my first day in office, I prohibited -- without exception or equivocation -- the use of torture by the United States of America. (Applause.) I ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed, and we are doing the hard work of forging a framework to combat extremism within the rule of law. Every nation must know: America will live its values, and we will lead by example.......
.........This is what we have already done. But this is just a beginning. Some of our actions have yielded progress. Some have laid the groundwork for progress in the future. But make no mistake: This cannot solely be America's endeavor. Those who used to chastise America for acting alone in the world cannot now stand by and wait for America to solve the world's problems alone. We have sought -- in word and deed -- a new era of engagement with the world. And now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.
Next up buzz word bingo!
Here is a partial text of a speech made to the same council 3 years ago
BUSH: Mr. Secretary General, Madam President, distinguished delegates, and ladies and gentlemen, I
want to thank you for the privilege of speaking to this General Assembly.
Last week America and the world marked the fifth anniversary of the attacks that filled another September morning with death and suffering. On that terrible day, extremists killed nearly 3,000 innocent people, including citizens of dozens of nations represented right here in this chamber.
Five years ago I
stood at this podium and called on the community of nations to defend civilization and build a more hopeful future. This is still the great challenge of our time.
It is the calling of our generation.
This morning I
want to speak about the more hopeful world that is within our reach, a world beyond terror, where ordinary men and women are free to determine their own destiny, where the voices of moderation are empowered, and where the extremists are marginalized by the peaceful majority.
While your peers in other parts of the world have received educations that prepare them for the opportunities of a global economy, you have been fed propaganda and conspiracy theories that blame others for your country's shortcomings.
And everywhere you turn, you hear extremists who tell you that you can escape your misery and regain your dignity through violence and terror and martyrdom.
like to speak directly to the people across the broader Middle East.
We respect Islam
, but we will protect our people from those who pervert Islam
to sow death and destruction.
Our goal is to help you build a more tolerant and hopeful society that honors people of all faiths and promotes the peace.
So today I'm
announcing that I'm naming a presidential special envoy, former USAID administrator Andrew Natsios, to lead America's efforts to resolve the outstanding disputes and help bring peace to your land.
The world must also stand up for peace in the Holy Land. I'm
committed to two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security.
committed to a Palestinian state that has territorial integrity and will live peacefully with the Jewish state of Israel.
Freedom, by its nature, cannot be imposed. It must be chosen.......
In your midst, Hamas and Hezbollah are working to destabilize the region, and your government is turning your country into a tool of Iran. This is increasing your country's isolation from the world......
.....Earlier this year, the Palestinian people voted in a free election. The leaders of Hamas campaigned on a platform of ending corruption and improving the lives of the Palestinian people, and they prevailed.
The world is waiting to see whether the Hamas government will follow through on its promises or pursue an extremist agenda.
believe peace can be achieved and that a democratic Palestinian state is possible.
hear from leaders in the region who want to help.
directed Secretary of State (Condoleezza) Rice to lead a diplomatic effort to engage moderate leaders across the region to help the Palestinians reform their security services and support Israeli and Palestinian leaders in their efforts to come together to resolve their differences.
Prime Minister (Tony) Blair has indicated that his country will work with partners in Europe to help strengthen the governing institutions of the Palestinian administration. We welcome his initiative.
Recently, a courageous group of Arab and Muslim intellectuals wrote me
a letter. In it, they said this: "The shore of reform is the only one on which any lights appear, even though the journey demands courage and patience and perseverance."
The United Nations was created to make that journey possible. Together, we must support the dreams of good and decent people who are working to transform a troubled region. And by doing so, we will advance the high ideals on which this institution was founded.
so BO isn't the only one has lofty dreams of peace, and who uses the word "I".
Rhodes, there are plenty of real issues that you can no doubt find to discredit Obama, why would you waste your time with a U.N. speech?
