Obama Iowa Speech: Four More Days

Remarks of Senator Barack Obama--as prepared for delivery
Friday, October 31st, 2008
Des Moines, Iowa

Iowa, I have just two words for you: four days.

After decades of broken politics in Washington, eight years of failed policies from George Bush, and twenty-one months of a campaign that has taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are four days away from change in America.

In four days, you can turn the page on policies that have put the greed and irresponsibility of Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street.

In four days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle-class, create new jobs, and grow this economy so that everyone has a chance to succeed; from the CEO to the secretary and the janitor; from the factory owner to the men and women who work on its floor.

In four days, you can put an end to the politics that would divide a nation just to win an election; that tries to pit region against region, city against town, Republican against Democrat; that asks us to fear at a time when we need hope.

In four days, at this defining moment in history, you can give this country the change we need.

Sure be glad when it's over, no more BS phone calls, junk mail, etc. It's gotten so bad that I am now writing on all the GOP mail "return to sender." That way they can waste their money for a change, not the taxpayers.

And the GOP is losing more court cases where they have tried to cage the votes. They must be really scared when all the lies and slime they throw isn't sticking.

Let's hope we have an honest election, without either party trying to screw the voters.


What the heck is ObamaMessiah doing in Iowa where he has a commanding lead? He should be in Missouri instead. (Or Indiana, North Carolina, etc.).

He's returned to Iowa several times over the past several months. I think he must hold a special place in his heart for the place where he won his first primary/caucus, Herman.
