Hey...speeches are expensive.  They need to be rationed now.

The one thing politicians have always had is plenty of cheap words. Plenty.

Cheap words? Have you seen how much former presidents and politicians get for speeches at college campuses and such?

But then again I'm valuing their words in fiat denominations. On the Gold and Silver scale... welll....... now we're talking about something a little different.

I hope he makes millions with his post presidency teleprompter gigs... and soon.

Change doesn't stop here I hope!

Talk is cheap. With all those headlines at 0 hedge, which one is more effective than my BTFD calls?

Does that included the CO2 expelled by the politicians? Perhaps we can geo-sequester them?

Untill now, every daily speech of Obama has cost about 4 billion dollars!

(1 speech a day keeps sanity away!)

this shit is comical...what a joke of a president

Obama made that speech in 2008 when he won the presidency.

The joke is Kenny, who clearly plagiarized it.

It's a shame that ZeroHedge confuses the time/place of the speech to make it look as if Obama spoke it in Ireland.

So are Volkswagen Phantoms - a car so ridiculous and over-priced, it was only sold in the US for a few years. Not even the dumbest group of consumers in the world would buy it.

Those Ewoks look more like Iceland when they start monkeyhammering ATSTs. Do you have any idea how much replacing those things add to the Empire's budget?

You can't even build em on Tatooine, because the damn rebels will steal the plans and shove them up some poor droid's poop chute (<waaaaeeeeeeeee> indeed, R2)!

Endor rejected the IMF / Galactic empire when they discovered they would have to forgoe the next 30 years of nuts and berries.


The little fellas simply wouldn't stand for it.

Geez. Some plagiarizing speechwriter is going to be pounding the streets looking for a job soon.
But I am not disappointed because I don’t expect much from this crew.

Sometimes this shit just gets too weird for words.  One message, multiple messengers, the sheep will never notice.  Really, they won't.  You folks on this site are like the 1/2 of 1% (maybe) with your eyes and ears open.  The rest don't know and they don't want to know.  This is the (manufactured) reality of our time.

Nothing nefarious going on here Banzai7. Just like the accident that created the Reese's peanut butter cup, they simply bumped into each other and mixed up their note cards. No problem. It will all get sorted out when the Ministry of Truth and Information does it's next information scrub.

Instead of wondering "What T F", I believe we need to start wondering "Who T F".  I've never been a Bilderberger believer, but this shit is getting scarier and scarier!
