President Barack Obama quotes aka Obama quotes

The man responsible for the Barack Obama quotes.

On this page I have a varied selection of President Barack Obama quotes.

Barack Obama is the first African-American to be elected President of the United States.

In November of 2008 he was elected into office as the 44th President.

One of the qualities that he exhibited during his run for office is his cool & collective demeanor.

Another is his great intellect and ability to convey his message to the people.

From his speeches, news conferences and interviews there is a tremendous amount of material available---what surfers who do a lot of googling call---just plain Obama quotes.

As you read these quotes remember that this is history in the making, and you are living this history.

Since he is just beginning his Presidency, there will be plenty more Obama quotes added in the near future.


The war does not end when you come home.

It lives on in memories of your fellow soldiers, sailors,

airmen and Marines who gave their lives.

It endures in the wound that is slow to heal,

the disability that isn't going away;

the dream that wakes you at night,

or the stiffening in your spine when a car backfires

down the street.

Speech, Feb. 27, 2009


"Now, because he knows that his economic theories don't work,

he's been spending these last few days calling me every name in

the book.

Lately he's called me a socialist for wanting to roll-back the

Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans so we can

finally give tax relief to the middle class.

I don't know what's next.

By the end of the week he'll be accusing me of being

a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten.

I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich."

on John McCain's attacks, Raleigh, NC, Oct. 29, 2008


On excitement in his father's native Kenya that his election

would mean the building of billions of dollars in new roads,

bridges, hospitals, and schools in their country:

"I've tried to explain how it works these days.

First comes the invasion, and then billions in aid."

Speech at the 2005 Gridiron dinner


That is the true genius of America, a faith in the simple dreams

of its people, the insistence on small miracles.

That we can say what we think,

write what we think, without hearing a sudden knock on the door.

That we can have an idea and start our own business

without paying a bribe or hiring somebody's son.

That we can participate in the political process without fear

of retribution, and that our votes will be counted ---

or at least, most of the time.

Speech at 2004 Democratic Convention


The best judge of whether or not a country is going to develop

is how it treats its women. If it's educating its girls, if women

have equal rights, that country is going to move forward.

But if women are oppressed and abused and illiterate,

then they're going to fall behind.

The strongest democracies flourish from frequent and lively debate,

but they endure when people of every background and belief

find a way to set aside smaller differences in service

of a greater purpose.

Press conference, Feb. 9, 2009


If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for

which it exists to protect them and to promote their common

welfare all else is lost.

Speech, Aug. 28, 2006


America is a land of big dreamers and big hopes.

It is this hope that has sustained us through revolution

and civil war, depression and world war,

a struggle for civil and social rights

and the brink of nuclear crisis.

And it is because our dreamers dreamed that we have emerged

from each challenge more united, more prosperous,

and more admired than before.

Speech, Jun. 4, 2005



For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength,

not a weakness

We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus,

and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture,

drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted

the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from

that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but

believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass;

that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve;

that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall

reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering

in a new era of peace.

Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 2009
