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.

We have set a clear and focused goal: to work with all members of this body to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat al Qaeda and its extremist allies -- a network that has killed thousands of people of many faiths and nations, and that plotted to blow up this very building. In Afghanistan and Pakistan, we and many nations here are helping these governments develop the capacity to take the lead in this effort, while working to advance opportunity and security for their people.
In Iraq, we are responsibly ending a war. We have removed American combat brigades from Iraqi cities, and set a deadline of next August to remove all our combat brigades from Iraqi territory. And I have made clear that we will help Iraqis transition to full responsibility for their future, and keep our commitment to remove all American troops by the end of 2011.

I have outlined a comprehensive agenda to seek the goal of a world without nuclear weapons. In Moscow, the United States and Russia announced that we would pursue substantial reductions in our strategic warheads and launchers. At the Conference on Disarmament, we agreed on a work plan to negotiate an end to the production of fissile materials for nuclear weapons. And this week, my Secretary of State will become the first senior American representative to the annual Members Conference of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.

Upon taking office, I appointed a Special Envoy for Middle East Peace, and America has worked steadily and aggressively to advance the cause of two states -- Israel and Palestine -- in which peace and security take root, and the rights of both Israelis and Palestinians are respected.

To confront climate change, we have invested $80 billion in clean energy. We have substantially increased our fuel-efficiency standards. We have provided new incentives for conservation, launched an energy partnership across the Americas, and moved from a bystander to a leader in international climate negotiations.

To overcome an economic crisis that touches every corner of the world, we worked with the G20 nations to forge a coordinated international response of over $2 trillion in stimulus to bring the global economy back from the brink. We mobilized resources that helped prevent the crisis from spreading further to developing countries. And we joined with others to launch a $20 billion global food security initiative that will lend a hand to those who need it most, and help them build their own capacity.

We've also re-engaged the United Nations. We have paid our bills. We have joined the Human Rights Council. (Applause.) We have signed the Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. We have fully embraced the Millennium Development Goals. And we address our priorities here, in this institution -- for instance, through the Security Council meeting that I will chair tomorrow on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, and through the issues that I will discuss today.

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.

That whole thing chapped me too, Rhodes.
Truly amazing how much he has accomplished already...
What? Gitmo isn't closed yet? Oh...

We are "responsibly ending" the war in Iraq? Is that code for "I can't get the troops out like I said I would, Bush may have been right about this one"?

Hey, we invested $80 billion in clean energy! Any of that going into the "cash for clunkers" thing? 'Cause I know a dealer or two that can't get his money out of the gov't for that clunker of a program...

Hey, we mobilized resources to keep the economic crisis out of developing countries! Wow! What? That just means we can only afford to buy at Walmart, and all their stuff comes from...oh. I see...

I could go on, but I'm getting sick to my stomach...

Yeah its fairly sickening, but good for us in a way since arrogance and ego always breeds such silly mistakes.

On the other hand the damage he is doing to the US is getting serious. Perhaps we can survive four years, certainly not eight. Even a hostile Congress wont be enough to stop that catastrophe.

What I've noticed is the reactions to BO by other countries. One of the reasons foreign leaders hated Bush was (IMHO) they were scared of him. He was a cowboy, at times pushy and rude, and thus they were less likely to cross him in certain situations. They're not scared of BO. I believe they think he's going to be a pushover who'll do no worse than a slap on the wrist when they step out of line, if that. BO walks softly, but carries no stick.

I am sorry that you are under the delusion that his "we" has anything to do with "you". His "we" is that inner circle of people with some very radical views. You know like him and his czars.

Doctor: Im afraid its Bush Derangement Syndrome.
LS: Oh no is there a cure?
Doctor: Perhaps when Bush is out of office it will exit your system.

A self proclaimed communist.
Pundit for forced sterilization.
Believes dogs should have lawyers.
Wishes to ban all hunting.
A member of the Chicago political machine. aka thugs
Thinks all gun ownership must be banned.

Well I haven't liked the idea of "czars" that were started by that illustrous dem FDR before I was born. No one in position of that magnitude should be there by appt. answerable to the pres but not congress or the voters..that goes for ALL parties..oh excuse me both parties. If you want to realistically look at it though LS I'll concede Bush had 31 czar titles in his admin. in 8 years/2 terms if you'll concede Obama already has 32 in 8 mos. Extrapolating I'd say he'll end up with more. Please note the positions have been there and its whether the press chooses to highlight it after FDR it really didn't come back in to vogue until Nixon/Ford.

Gee if Bush doing it makes it ok I guess you like Obama keeping the secrecy, and keeping troops in Iraq and ramping up in afghanistan, and not enforcing the borders. Is this the change you were hoping for? Now understand I fully supported Bush on the war and thought he was the one that should be there after the towers fell. I can see Gore rolling over like Spain. But I do think W was a globalist and I didn't like quite a few of his domestic policies. I just don't understand the liberal thing of saying George did it, when most things George did were railed against by that side. Now when Obama does it it's ok because W did? Unfortunately since most candidates for Pres are marginalized and I am left with a best of the worst choice they have tended to fall on the republican side. people I truly want to see in there just never make it.

I really really wanted a president who coincidentally would have made history as the first black president too. But it was his ideas I liked not his skin color. Alan Keyes.

Man Alen would have made a much better president. I voted for him the one chance I had to do so but he is the former-mainstream medias worst demon, a gifted black conservative.

While not perfect(who is) he is at least passionate about Constitutional freedoms and speaks his mind on the elephants in the room everyone else tires so hard to ignore.

I can only imagine what his address to the UN would have been..."The demolition crews are waiting, you have one hour to vacate the complex and leave the country. We are rebuilding the World Trade Center on this site.". Yeah I know but we all know it needs doing.

" We found the WMD's, and they are set to go off in this building in... about 30 minutes.. We felt this was the best way to dispose of the WMD's. Instead of the WMD's being used on innocent Civilians, they are being used on Liars, Crooks, And Theives."

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.

Today I'd 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.

I'm 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.

I believe peace can be achieved and that a democratic Palestinian state is possible.

I hear from leaders in the region who want to help.

I 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.

kumbaya man....kumbaya

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?

IMO, better question is why does the US bother with the UN period, it's an expensive, useless organization! Oh, I forgot, nobama is an organizer, so he will be right at home there.

He was a cowboy, at times pushy and rude, and thus they were less likely to cross him in certain situations.

Nobody was scared of Bush (except conspiracy theorists), and nobody is scared of BO (except conspiracy theorists).

RIIGGHHTT!! Keep thinking that you'll be safer that way. Your messiah is a Pansy anyways. Bush did a lot of mistakes BUT he NEVER made it a world's record for apologizing to the world for all the supposed "misdeeds" by this country. AND abandoning Israel the way he has. AND for cozying up to ALL the freakin jerks that would like nothing better to do then destroy this country

What???? You cant really think that. Since Sept. 11 terrorists were not able to form another attack as big as that, and most feared to even try. BO is riding on the platform that Bush set up to prevent any future retaliations. Wait tell he comes up with his own and that's when we need to worry again. So you think the millions that protested his policy's on Sept. 12 are conspiracy theorists, wow I had never really dealt with one before but now I am one because I see and fear what his is doing. Do you also believe that Carter is right and I am a raving racist because I have not seen a policy yet from him I support. Just wondering
