Classy guy. Sad to see him go.
Someone on the tv said that Obama didn't mention gun violence in his speech, and that despite 256,000 Americans dying by gun violence during his eight years in office he did nothing about it.
And him with that Nobel Peace Prize 'n all...
CodePink mentioned as a result of Obama's facade, it dissipated CodePink's on the roll anti-war momentum. It was not good in the large scheme of things to have a likable face as president all the while execute on its "American Interest" at the same time.
Guess what...he probably doesn't care what you think
A bit more seriously...no President will win everyone's heart and do all the right things his legacy will be contrasted like all legacy of American Presidents in recent memory.
It's his farewell speech...of course he will focus on the + not the -
I see countless of managers living my bank yearly for other branches...at the farewell speech...they talk about what they have achieved, not where they have fucked up.
Obama did some good, some average and some bad. Like we all do. I do believe in his case it's a decent mix of things. Some people are truly outstanding and do more good than the rest and some are the reverse....let see what comes next to replace him...
And to put to bed the issue of war
since the United States was founded in 1776, she has been at war during 214 out of her 235 calendar years of existence. In other words, there were only 21 calendar years in which the U.S. did not wage any wars
Great president says Gaddafi. Same type of reaction from codepink members.
Human rights, ya know?
