OPPORTUNITIES TO DROP A HAMILTON REFERENCE OBAMA MISSED IN HIS STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

Don't worry Obama I got yr back
  1. "I want to focus on our future."
    "Legacy. What is a legacy? It's planting seeds in a garden you never get to see. I wrote some notes at the beginning of a song someone will sing for me. America, you great unfinished symphony, you sent for me! You let me make a difference." (The World Was Wide Enough)
  2. "We live in a time of extraordinary change."
    The World Turned Upside Down
  3. "Whether we like it or not, the pace of this change will only accelerate."
    "We keep living anyway. We rise and we fall and we break and we make our mistakes." (Wait For It)
  4. "There have been those who told us to fear the future; who claimed we could slam the brakes on change, promising to restore past glory if we just got some group or idea that was threatening America under control."
    "What comes next? You've been freed. Do you know how hard it is to lead?" (What Comes Next?)
  5. "We made change work for us, always extending America's promise outward, to the next frontier, to more and more people. And because we did--because we saw opportunity where others saw only peril--we emerged stronger and better than before."
    "I am just like my country, I'm young, scrappy, and hungry, and I'm not throwing away my shot." (My Shot)
  6. "Will we respond to the changes of our time with fear, turning inward as a nation, and turning against each other as a people? Or will we face the future with confidence in who we are, what we stand for, and the incredible things we can do together?"
    "I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory. When's it gonna get me? In my sleep? Seven feet ahead of me? If I see it coming, do I run or do I let it be?" (My Shot)
  7. "For the past seven years, our goal has been a growing economy that works better for everybody. We've made progress. But we need to make more."
    "I know the action in the street is exciting but Jesus, between all the bleeding and fighting I've been reading and writing. We need to handle our financial situation. Are we a nation of states? What's the STATE OF OUR NATION?" (My Shot)
  8. "The spirit of discovery is in our DNA. We're Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers and George Washington Carver. We're Grace Hopper and Katherine Johnson and Sally Ride. We're every immigrant and entrepreneur from Boston to Austin to Silicon Valley racing to shape a better world.
    "Immigrants--we get the job done." (Yorktown)
  9. "But we can do so much more."
    "And there's a million things I haven't done, but just you wait. Just you wait." (Alexander Hamilton)
  10. "Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future."
    "If we assume the debts, the union gets a new line of credit--a financial diuretic. How do you not get it? If we're aggressive and competitive the union gets a boost. You'd rather give it a sedative?" (Cabinet Battle #1)
  11. "When you come after America, we go after you. It may take time, but we have long memories, and our reach has no limit."
    "Life doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints. It takes and it takes and it takes. And we keep living anyway. We rise and we fall and we break and we make our mistakes. And if there's a reason I'm still alive when so many have died, then I'm willing to wait for it." (Wait For It)
  12. "We also can't try to take over and rebuild every country that falls into crisis. That's not leadership."
    "I wanna talk about neutrality." (One Last Time)
  13. "When politicians insult Muslims, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid bullied, that doesn't make us safer. That's not telling it like it is. It's just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world. It makes it harder to achieve our goals. And it betrays who we are as a country."
    "I know that we can win. I know that greatness lies within. But remember from here on in, history has its eyes on you." (History Has Its Eyes On You)
  14. "If you doubt America's commitment--or mine--to see that justice is done, ask Osama bin Laden."
    "We made a treaty with a king whose head is now in a basket, would you like to take it out and ask it?" (Cabinet Battle #2)
  15. "It's one of the few regrets of my presidency--that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better."
    "I wanna warn against partisan fighting." (One Last Time)
  16. "If we give up now, then we forsake a better future."
    "This is not a moment, it's the movement. Where all the hungriest brothers with something to prove went. Foes oppose us, we take an honest stand, we roll like Moses claiming our promised land. And? If we win our independence, is that a guarantee of freedom for our descendants?" (My Shot)
  17. "Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than it was when I was elected to this office, and when it comes to every important international issue, people of the world do not look to Beijing or Moscow--they look to us."
    "DON'T BE SHOCKED WHEN YOUR HISTORY BOOK MENTIONS ME." (My Shot)
  18. "Unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. That's what makes me so hopeful about our future. Because of you. I believe in you. That's why I stand here confident that the State of our Union is strong."
    "When you're gone, who remembers your name? Who keeps your flame? Who tells your story? Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?" (Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story)
