Word Cloud: President Obama's Words

President Obama's first 100 days have been filled with words.

He has been the salesman in chief, trying to convince Congress, the American people and the world to follow his lead, buy into his plan to save the economy, cut taxes for the middle class, exit one war and engage more in another and transform education, energy and healthcare.

We took some of his recent speeches, such as his inaugural address and speech before Congress (see his recent speeches here) and ran them through a word-cloud generator at http://www.wordle.net/ to see what words surface as the most frequently used.

"People" and "new," "must," "also" and "now" stand out, reflecting his rhetoric of renewal and huge ("also") agenda, as well as "economy," "world," "America" and "crisis."
