Barack Obama quotes and sayings are all over the Internet. While President Obama is generally well spoken and considered by many to be one of the great orators of our time, he’s hardly immune to the occasional gaff or embarrassing slip-up. Obama’s quotes are enlightening, as you can tell a lot about a person by their choice of words, so as the November 2012 election approaches, and Obama gets ready to battle Republican nominee Mitt Romney for the highest office in the land, we pulled together 10 of Obama’s most famous quotes—the good, the bad, and the just plain silly.
“I’ve now been in 57 states—I think one left to go.”

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
This is precisely why some people love the guy. You could almost set these lines to music.
