  •  he repeated again and again how government (9+ / 0-)

    is important to provide for the people what they could not provide for themselves

    he talked about Lincoln's desire for innovation and opportunity for all Americans

    He repeated a joke from Lincoln
    "Lincoln was talking to a person that was claiming that he was responsible for Lincoln winning the presidency...Lincoln responded by saying..I forgive you then"

    Obama said then...so for all the people here that helped putting me in this position...we are taking names

    This year we can declare our independence...Barack Obama
