Obama's Use of Complete Sentences Stirs Controversy

The president-elect's stubborn insistence on using complete sentences has already attracted a rebuke from one of his harshest critics, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.

"Talking with complete sentences there and also too talking in a way that ordinary Americans like Joe the Plumber and Tito the Builder can't really do there, I think needing to do that isn't tapping into what Americans are needing also," she said.

Great Speech. It's not iconic as "I Have a Dream" or "Ask Not What Your Country..." perhaps it will become a similar household catch phrase over time but for now it was a very fine speech.

Welcome to Barackistan!

Considering it's been mostly Republicans running the country for the past 30 years, seems to me
they can take a big part of the blame for a country whose citizens aren't edumacated.

If you couldn't understand Barry's big speech today, you probably shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Some nice jabs at the previous administration during the first bit of it.

To be honest, I didn't get that tingly feeling like I'd hoped I would, but it was still a well written and well read speech. Emotional and strong without being preachy, which is a tough line to walk.

I'm looking forward to the day when they have 180° teleprompters so speakers don't look in only two places the whole time. Kind of takes away from the "talking to the crowd" aspect if you ask me.
