He had us at hello…

 

The Rockstar

 

Obama’s popularity may be struggling at home, but here in Indonesia he had us at “hello.” A crowd of over 6,500 fans went wild with cheering and applause as the President opened his landmark speech with this simple statement in fluent Bahasa Indonesia:

Indonesia adalah bagian dari saya. (Indonesia is a part of me).

This article states that the atmosphere during Obama’s speech was reminiscent of a rock concert, with the excited crowd buzzing and music pulsing before the president’s address. The full speech is posted below.
