    I agree that we have a freedom of speech and that the education is very important to the united states of america so we can have more jobs. I am also happy that he is trying to have world peace :)

  5. I think hes a good and strong speaker. I agreed with lots of what he said. I dont think hes the best president but i dont think either of the candidates are that good. I belive i would be a much better president.

  8. The speech he made was really great. I agreed with most of the things he said. I mostly agreed with him about the citizenship thing because I think everyone in this country should be equal. It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor.

  9. i agree with everything he said it was great speech

  10. from what I've seen, I personally would like Obama as president again. but, I would like to hear the other side of all this BEFORE I make my decision. I would also like to hear the opinions of other people about this so that I may have a better stance on whats going on.
