The Analysis of Obama's Victory Speech

Health Care" Right or Privilege"

...Some people suggest making healthcare mandatory is the same as having to purchase automobile insurance, the only problem with this type of thinking is that you do not have to drive or own a car.

Speeches: Barack Obama and Martin Luther King

...After Obama’s speech in 2008 we can see that the American people have been doing well after the financial crisis, even though it was a really hard time for many people, since many lost their jobs and a lot of money.

Obama uses this catch phrase six times i...
