The President’s Christmas Eve Speech


As usual, the President did a superb job delivering his annual Christmas Eve speech; his love of country and his pride in our military shines through his every word. Clearly he believes in what we are fighting for, and it is evident that he holds our troops in the very highest regard.

In case you missed it, here is a small clip of his speech; I think you will agree that it is inspirational, reverent, and entirely appropriate.

Of course, it’s not our current president who gave this heart-felt oration; it is the speech President Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave on Christmas Eve in 1943, during the depths of World War II.

The audio and transcript of the entire speech can be found here.

We at Grand Rants wish all our readers and everyone everywhere a joyous Christmas.

    No matter what Obama says or does certain people are going to hate. That’s just what they do. There’s no logic to it and it’s not really based on any facts.

    The truth is Obama has been an extremely successful President so far and he will go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents in our history.

      Sorry, Marvin, but I’m going to have to disagree with you on a few points: First, what hate? I just posted a speech given by a different president during a time of war. Where’s the hate in that?

      I also must disagree that history will judge President Obama kindly, on the whole. His continuation of Bush’s war policies are probably the best think he has done, and he will be applauded for that in the future. His domestic policies, on the other hand, have driven the country to the brink of disaster, and may, in fact have pushed us over that brink.

      No, on the whole, I believe history will be far kinder to President Bush that it will be to President Obama.

      I doubt that. You don’t have Howard Zinn around to re-write history anymore.

      Sorry about your bad luck.

    Marvin, what you consider Obama’s successes the majority of American’s consider it tyranny.
