Speech Clouds: President Obama Abroad

I just love these things from Wordle - especially when they're used as tools for comparison.

President Obama's prepared remarks at a town hall in Strasbourg:

And in Prague:

And in Ankara:

Each speech had a certain purpose. The Strasbourg remarks seemed to be about repairing the US' relationship with Europe generally and showing the world that the US has changed. The speech in Prague talked about ridding the world of nuclear weapons. Finally, the Ankara speech opened a door to the Muslim world. Rhetorically the clouds bear this out, I think.
