Tonight President Obama gave his farewell speech to the nation tonight and it took everyone back to 2008 and 2012, he is such a motivational speaker , a trendsetter a changer….. In just ten days, the country—and the world—will watch as president-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States and believe me… Everyone is dreading this day….
During his speech he stated “for every two steps forward, it often feels we take one step back.”
“This is where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it,” Obama said from a packed hall of supporters in his adopted hometown.
“After eight years as your President, I still believe that,” he went on. “And it’s not just my belief. It’s the beating heart of our American idea — our bold experiment in self-government.”
As he speaks to a very excited crowd Obama was interrupted often with screams of “I Love you Obama.” When a protester holding a “Pardon All of Us” sign, chants of “four more years” drowned out the shouts.
Obama sought to corral his crowd, listing the accomplishments of the last eight years ranging from health care to marriage equality while insisting that his work isn’t finished.
The oh so eloquent president promised to do a peaceful transition with President Elect Donald Trump, but Obama is no fool… But he warned that going forward Democrats shouldn’t fall in line with their commander-in-chief.
“Democracy does not require uniformity,” Obama said. “Our founders quarreled and compromised, and expected us to do the same. But they knew that democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity — the idea that for all our outward differences, we are all in this together; that we rise or fall as one.”
We won’t see a man like him in office for a long time. Eight years in office and no scandals and he treats his wife like a queen and showed his daughters how men should treat women. Most importantly, he genuinely cared about the american people and honored his position as president and did all he could to make things better for the rest of us.
Remember before he became president he said he saw his mother dying from breast cancer with no health care and he made that his priority, He did his best to help those in need.
