Presidents are remembered for what they said.
Reagan said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”
Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”
What about President Obama? What will be the words that future generations remember him by? What will be his one stirring sentence that lives long after he has left office?
Time will give us the answer to that question but there is another famous saying that can help us to get a better idea as to how this president will be remembered.
“Actions speak louder than words.”
If that saying is true, here are a few quotes that Barack Obama may have never spoken with his lips but that came across loud and clear in his actions.
Obama On Terrorism
“I stand strong against terrorists. And by terrorists I mean coal miners, people who own arts and crafts stores and military veterans. Oh, and those people who are always talking about the Constitution. Almost forgot about them.”
Obama On The Military
“Who needs the military anyway? They’re always wanting to come to D.C. to see war memorials and to get their injuries healed. Too much trouble if you ask me. Besides, anything they can do, my flying armed robots can do better.”
Obama On Congress
“Congress exists to affirm my every decision. Well, not every decision. Just the ones that they know about. And I must say, they are doing an excellent job.”
Obama On Gun Rights
“I support the right of average American citizens who happen to be employed by the IRS to own whatever firearms they please and as much ammo as the job requires.”
Obama On Healthcare
“A lot of Americans are dying without proper medical care. But a lot isn’t enough. We need more Americans to die without proper medical care. That’s why I came up with the Affordable Care Act. You didn’t really expect me to pay for all of these people, did you?”
Obama On The Environment
“We have a moral obligation to act swiftly and decisively on the environment. We owe it to our grandchildren. Well, not all of the grandchildren. Just the ones that weren’t killed by our immoral obligation to fund Planned Parenthood.”
Obama On Privacy
“I was surprised to find out today that Jason L. Sanders writes all of his stuff while wearing Captain America pajamas. Also, he ate eggs for breakfast this morning.”
Obama On The Warrantless Searches And Arrests Of American Citizens
“I am saddened to inform you that Mr. Sanders will be unable to finish today’s writing. We all wish him the best and a very speedy recovery.”
