"The battle of life is, in most cases, fought uphill; and to win it without a struggle were perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success; if there were nothing to struggle for, there would be nothing to be achieved."
-- Samuel Smiles🔹
President Obama's farewell speech to the Nation gave me the sliver of hope that I desperately needed🔹
Greatest US presidents of all time.
1. Abraham Lincoln
3. Barack Obama
Obama did the following.....
created 11.3 million jobs.
gave 20 million people Heath Insurance.
Stopped Iran from getting nuclear weapons without firing a shot.
Appointed Supreme Court justices that gave this country marriage quality.
education policies made
High school graduation rates better then they were before.
And to all the ignorant hateful bigots out there that thinks Obama "created racism and division" in this country. let me tell you this. Racism and division has always been a part of America long before Obama. America was born on racism and division. Obama did not create it but he did expose it. You conservatives just want the division and racism to be covered up in a blanket and not exposed. And that's part of your white privilege.
It's now time for us to take up the mantle and keep up the good fight. We cannot backtrack. The future looks dark, but we could be the lights to illuminate it
I'm so grateful that I had the privilege to be alive these last eight years. The tears continue to roll. God Bless you President Obama & thank you and Michelle for your service
This made me tearful. I am so happy that he and his family will be free of the White House, wishing them peace, happiness and success and hopefully lots of visibility. Nevertheless I feel a bit of fear too.
I will watch this in the next couple weeks. I couldn't bring myself to watch it live. There's a perceived finality in my mind once I see it, and I'm prolonging that inevitable. I will sorely miss the intelligence, class and hope this man brought to the Oval Office.
Ten trillion in new debt, disaster in the war against terror, the greatest non-Participation rate in the labor force since Jimmy Carter, politicization of the IRS and Justice Department, NSA paying scandal, Fast and Furious, record welfare rolls.
Yeah, we'll miss you "pal."
"Watching Obama's farewell address, I can't help thinking how much I will miss having a president who speaks eloquently, is logical, coherent, has class, grace, and doesn't urinate on Russian hookers."
~ Clay Jones
So thankful to have been so blessed these last eight years. Thank you to the Obama's and the Biden's....now let's see if I can stop crying.
You're policies sucked and so did your candidate and her husbands girlfriends and that's why your party lost to an outsider even with Wall Street, Washington, and the Media backing her.
A class act - President Obama and family. I will miss them.
Or in my living room.... president of the people! Hate to see you go!
Excellent farewell speech. Going to miss you President Obama.
All I could think was the Emperor Orange Anus taking power of America. It totally ruined this speech.
He speaks complete sentences! And he is about goodness and making the world a better place. Not about who he hates and who we should hate.
Mine either. A powerful man. We have been blessed to have him.
The best President we have had in my adult life and probably in my entire lifetime.
Yes, we can. And every one of us must remember that, and rise up against the putrid unfitness to ensure that yes, we WILL
How do we go from this to Trump. Devastated to see him and his family leave.
I started crying before his first words. How can we go from this to Trump?
The last coherent and cohesive speech from a President for years to come.
Hernan since you missed the speech. I suggest looking for the full video.
There wasn't a dry in most living rooms either.
Come on only one post about Trump's p? If you guys are going to make a meme stick you have to keep propagating it
THAT is what a president sounds like.
The rally cry! Yes we can. Yes we will!! #resist #solidarity
Wish he didn't sell out to Monsanto and should've stuck up for Natives at Standing Rock
He is so eloquent.....doubt Trump could deliver such an intelligent and ....long speech with meaningful content
I think he'll get far more done out of office because he'll have those neolibs out of his ass.
Yes we Can! Thank you President Obama and Vice President Biden!
