#ObamaFarewell; Barack Obama Delivers Farewell Address. PICS!

By dayan (M)January 11, 2017, 08:35:13 AM
President Barack Obama received a hero's welcome in Chicago Tuesday night as he took the stage to deliver his farewell speech. Supporters stomped on the bleachers set up behind him and members of the crowd shouted 'four more years' over a disruption. The exiting president who campaigned on 'hope and change' told his supporters 'you were the change' and encouraged them to continue standing up for their values.



Obama never mentioned his successor by name but made multiple references to his nemesis as he declared to loud clapping and cheers 'that science and reason matter' and referenced his attacks on Muslim Americans.

He also decried the 'selective sorting of facts' he said members of the other party have embraced.

In the hour-long speech Obama also took on the touchy topic of race, saying that talk of a 'post-racial America' after he was elected 'was never realistic.'

The president was accompanied on his trip by First Lady Michelle Obama.

'Michelle – for the past twenty-five years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend. You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and with grit and with style and good humor,' he told his wife in his remarks.



He called Vice President Joe Biden, also in attendance, 'a brother' and said his decision to add him to the ticket was the first he made and the best.

They both wore black winter coats as they boarded Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Tuesday with their older daughter Malia, who was sporting a stylish camel topcoat.

The Democratic president offered advice to the American people about the challenges that lie ahead. He only briefly rehashed his eight-year presidency.

'The President certainly could give a long speech reciting the many accomplishments of his administration, but that’s not how he’s choosing to spend his time tomorrow night,' Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Monday.

He is still young, so he will still be in a position to influence things for many years to come.

Well,...I shall not say farewell to him,..It is not as if he died or something..He will just be in the background. He can still bring one or two inputs or advise if needed by his successor.
