Tuesday is President Barack Obama’s 54th birthday. Obama was born on Aug. 4, 1961 in Honolulu, and at age 47 he became the United States’ fifth-youngest commander-in-chief. He’s beaten out by Ulysses S. Grant, Bill Clinton, John F. Kennedy and Theodore Roosevelt, who was only 42 when he took office.


Last year, Obama marked his birthday with meetings and the first-ever U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. But this year he started the celebrations early. On Saturday he took his friends out golfing at Andrews Air Force and then went to Camp David in Maryland, where he’s also partied in previous years.

Take some time to honor the president on your own today by reading some of his most famous quotes, mostly serious but some fun, collected from Wikiquote, Parade and GoodReads:

obama news

“We always knew that hope is not blind optimism. It’s not ignoring the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. It’s not sitting on the sidelines or shirking from a fight. Hope is that thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us if we have the courage to reach for it and to work for it and to fight for it.”

“Six years into my presidency some people still say I’m arrogant, aloof, condescending. Some people are so dumb.”

“Societies held together by fear and repression may offer the illusion of stability for a time, but they are built upon fault lines that will eventually tear asunder.”

“A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence; or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say, ‘Huh. It works. It makes sense.'”

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

“There’s only one thing we can be sure of, and that is the love that we have for our children, for our families, for each other. The warmth of a small child’s embrace, that is true.”

“It is you, our citizens, who make the state of our union strong.”

“One voice can change a room, and if one voice can change a room, then it can change a city, and if it can change a city, it can change a state, and if it change a state, it can change a nation, and if it can change a nation, it can change the world. Your voice can change the world.”

HABARI YAKO : OBAMA Tells Detractors That He Is Coming To Kenya

  • Obama to land in Kenya between  24th -26th July 2015.
  • Is the first sitting American President to visit Kenya
  • He will be attending the 6th Global Entrepreneurship Summit.
  • His goal is to raise USD 1 billion (Shs.96.5b) by 2017.
  • It is in line with his policy and diplomatic agenda.

”This summer I’ll travel to Kenya and while there I will participate on..oh you, Habari,” Obama cracked a joke. “So we are going to participate on the 6th Global Summit  and I will have a great opportunity to meet young entrepreneurs from around the world,” Obama continued.

Speaking to a group of entrepreneurs drawn from across the world at the White House on Monday, President Obama said promoting trans-formative entrepreneurship among women and youth around the world over is a critical part of his administration’s diplomatic agenda and the sixth Global Entrepreneurship Summit to be held in Nairobi in July, and which he is expected to attend, is in line with that policy.

“There are brilliant young people and hard working women and innovative thinkers in communities all around the world but they haven’t been given the chance yet and together we can make sure that anybody whose got the creativity and drive to work hard no matter where they come from, what they look like, what their background is, they get a fair short at pursuing their dreams.

That’s what this is about and as long as I’m President this is going to be a critical part of our engagement and our diplomacy with peoples and nations around the world,” he said.

”The possibility of attaining the ‘American dream’ no matter where in the world you are, he argued, is not to be underestimated in attaining global stability in the face of growing extremism. Poverty alone does not cause terrorism or sectarian violence but investments in youth entrepreneurship and education are some of the best antidotes that we have to that kind of disorder,” he continued.

Extremist attacks in Kenya is one of the reasons critics of President Obama’s decision to visit Kenya as the leader of the free world have given.

“Given America’s military actions against the group, why would Al-Shabaab, notorious for the Garissa outrage and for its attack in 2013 on a shopping mall in Nairobi, not attempt to harm President Obama or those in his entourage? Why take such extreme risks?

The United States can presumably mount and afford the massive security phalanx that would be required to keep President Obama safe (guarding President Obama in today’s Kenya will cost approximately Sh5.8 billion). But Kenya hardly can,” Robert I. Rotberg, author of Africa Emerges: Consummate Challenges, Abundant Opportunities 2013) penned in an opinion piece published by the leading Capitol news site

He also cited Kenya’s poor track record in combating corruption, led by President Kenyatta and his Deputy Ruto International Criminal Court indictments and Kenya’s ethnic politics as other reasons why President Obama should wait to leave office to visit Kenya.

However Obama will not visit Kogelo village  as many Kenyans are expecting. ”This is not the time for a Kenyan-descended president to visit his ancestral home. Perhaps a better itinerary would take President Obama to Liberia, where Ebola is finally being vanquished; to Botswana, where corruption is less of a concern or to Nigeria, Africa’s largest country, where a brand-new President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged to end corruption,” Rotberg opined.

But despite this and similar opposition to his planned visit to Kenya in July, President Obama’s latest remarks make clear that it remains firmly on the agenda.

The global summit will be the first one to be held in Sub- Saharan Africa and in Nairobi. Obama will also hold bilateral talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta. His coming will be a great boost in the Kenyan economy moreso the tourism sector which is expected to receive many tourists from all over the world.

We Give Thanks To Our Savior, JESUS Christ : Barack Obama Inspires Christians With His Speech

Speaking at his sixth annual Easter Prayer Breakfast at the White House on Tuesday, Obama welcomed the church leaders gathered, who included civil rights veteran Rev CT Vivian and Sojourners founder Jim Wallis. He noted the absence of Dr Gardner C. Taylor, a preacher and leading voice in the civil rights movement, who died on Sunday aged 96.

“Anybody who had the privilege of hearing him speak knows what power he had. He was a civil rights hero. He was a friend of Dr King, who used his spellbinding sermons to spread the Gospel and open people’s hearts and minds,” Obama said.

“He taught and mentored countless young ministers. So as we mourn his absence today, we also take solace knowing that he leaves a living legacy and that he is in a better place.”

Moving into his Easter reflection, the president said he wasn’t a preacher, and couldn’t tell a group of ministers anything they didn’t already know. But he said for him, the celebration of Easter “puts our earthly concerns into perspective.”

He continued: “With humility and with awe, we give thanks to the extraordinary sacrifice of Jesus Christ, our Saviour. We reflect on the brutal pain that He suffered, the scorn that He absorbed, the sins that He bore, this extraordinary gift of salvation that He gave to us. And we try, as best we can, to comprehend the darkness that He endured so that we might receive God’s light.

“And yet, even as we grapple with the sheer enormity of Jesus’s sacrifice, on Easter we can’t lose sight of the fact that the story didn’t end on Friday. The story keeps on going. On Sunday comes the glorious Resurrection of our Saviour.”

He said that the gift of God’s mercy meant that Christians are called on to “be better, to love more deeply, to serve ‘the least of these’ as an expression of Christ’s love here on Earth.” He noted that this has been a key tenant of Pope Francis’ papacy, and said he looked forward to welcoming him to the US later this year.

“I want to quote him [Pope Francis],” Obama added. “He says that we should strive ‘to see the Lord in every excluded person who is thirsty, hungry, naked; to see the Lord present even in those who have lost their faith… imprisoned, sick, unemployed, persecuted; to see the Lord in the leper – whether in body or soul – who encounters discrimination.’

“Isn’t that how Jesus lived? Isn’t that how He loved? Embracing those who were different; serving the marginalized; humbling Himself to the last. This is the example that we are called to follow.”
