Obama: “Hope is attainable if we can train a million Baracks and Michelles”

On Monday Barack Obama said that hope is still possible for the future if the next generation of leaders is modeled after none other than himself and former first lady Michelle Obama.

The ego on this guy, amirite?

Speaking at the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Canada, Obama laid out his plans for creating a “university for social change” to be aimed at developing the skills of young people from around the world who harbor cynicism towards “old institutions.”

“If we train them — if we give them skills, support, financing, media training, spotlights, then they’re the ones that are going to carry forward the solutions that we so desperately need,” Obama said, according to the Washington Examiner.

“If we could form a network of those young leaders, not just in the United States, but around the world, then we got something,” he continued before adding, “if we can train a million Baracks and Michelles who are running around thinking they can change the world, hope is attainable.”

And then audience cheered and clapped.

Obama is currently on several stops in Canada, and is speaking at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, on Tuesday afternoon. He is scheduled to visit Vancouver Tuesday evening.
