  • President Obama's Farewell Address

    President Obama's farewell address this evening was a moving tribute to the strength that lies at the heart of the American democratic experience. The man is an unparalleled orator.
    This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

          He's a brilliant Statesman and America will soon realize the difference between him and a buffoon.

            read this tweet tonight

            I've been waiting for 7 years for Obama to take my gun and all I got was a job, health insurance and marriage equality.

              I amazed at the man's composure and dignity. The speech was brilliantly conceived and inspirational, exactly how one should lead.

                  Is that the best you've got? When we play golf this summer, we can listen to a recording of it. That should be fun.

                      I loved that line. The entire speech was inspiring.

                        He should be exceptional. He'll have a teleprompter.

                          Just a class act all the way. He'll be a tough act to follow. Even tougher if DT hold continues on the path he's on. Maybe his speech will be off a Twitterprompter.

                            While I agree that there is no comparison between the bumbling Trump and Obama's silky smooth oration , reports indicate that Obama uses a Telepromter as well.

                            I really like(d) Obama, he had a calming tone and seemed to genuinely care.

                              He may well have used a Teleptompter. In a day and age where every word is dissected in search of any perceived faux pas, he'd be well-advised to use notes. In any event, he wrote the speech so it's not as though he's claiming credit for someone else's words.
