Live Stream: Obama Says Farewell; Reminds Us One Last Time How Awesome He Is

Tyler Durden's picture

Once again parting with Presidential tradition, rather that delivering his farewell speech from the oval office, the ever so humble Obama has decided to give his final address to the American people from his home town of Chicago.  And, like his 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, we're certain this will be a glorious event complete with a slew of celebrities and all the pomp and circumstance befitting a king...rest assured that no taxpayer expense was spared.

While the content of Obama's remarks have not been revealed, earlier today he posted the following preview on Facebook which noted that he looks forward to going back to "where it all started" and humbly affirmed that he's "made America a better, stronger place for the generations that will follow."

For Michelle and me, Chicago is where it all started. It’s the city that showed us the power and fundamental goodness of the American people.

 

It’s that inherent strength that brought our country through our fair share of challenges these last eight years. Because of you, we’ve come through them stronger. Because of you, we’ve held to a belief that has guided us ever since our founding – our conviction that, together, we can change this country for the better.

 

It’s easy to lose sight of that in the blizzard of our minute-to-minute Washington news cycles. But America is a story told not minute to minute, but generation to generation – a story written by parents, and teachers, and veterans, and neighbors who’ve taken on the call of citizenship, working together, without fanfare, to form a more perfect union.

 

Over the course of my life, I’ve been reminded time and again that change can happen – that ordinary people can come together to achieve extraordinary things. And I’ve seen that truth up close over these last eight years.

 

We’ve made America a better, stronger place for the generations that will follow. We’ve run our leg in a long relay of progress, knowing that our work will always be unfinished. And we’ve reaffirmed the belief that we can make a difference with our own hands, in our own time. That’s the imperative of citizenship – the idea that, with hard work, and a generous heart toward our fellow Americans, people who love their country can change it.

 

So tonight, I’m returning to where it all began to offer my most grateful farewell to the American people. I hope you’ll join me – I want to thank you for everything you’ve done.

And while Obama will undoubtedly brag about his amazing "economic recovery," we would once again highlight the following data that seemingly paints a slightly more sobering picture.

Harvard

 

Of course, these charts that we presented last summer also cast a slight shadow over Obama's "economic recovery." 

 

Unfortunately for Obama, simply stating something repeatedly doesn't actually make it a fact. 

And speaking of repeating fictitious stories until they somehow become fact, as Post News pointed out yesterday, for weeks now Obama and his various mouthpieces have been peddling the fiction that his administration managed to spend 8 years in the White House without a single major scandal.  And while that would be a fantastic accomplishment, unfortunately it's every bit as "fake" as the Obama "economic recovery."  In fact, here are just a few of the scandals that plagued the Obama administration over the years (a detailed description of each can be viewed here).

  • Iran Nuclear Deal and Ransom Payment
  • NSA Spying
  • Benghazi
  • Operation Fast and Furious
  • Eric Holder - First Attorney General Ever Held In Contempt Of Congress
  • IRS Targeting Of Conservative Groups
  • Bowe Bergdahl
  • The Great “Stimulus” Heist
  • Solyndra
  • Spying On Journalists
  • VA Death-list Scandal

Finally, since Obama will undoubtedly use his pedestal tonight to defend his one crowning piece of legislation, in a last-ditch effort to save it from being repealed by the incoming Trump administration, we leave you with the following charts displaying the epic collapse of Obamacare in just 1 year as insurers pulled out of exchanges all around the country in 2017 leaving Americans with minimal insurance options and substantially higher premiums.

Lets not forget all those Whistleblowers he prosecuted. That's right up there with his Constitutionally illegal Executive Orders. Well Done, *Golf Clap*, Well Done.

Give yourself a hug, Obozo...

Because nobody with a brain bigger than the size of a BB will.

Obama has a real identity issue.

He has a chip on the shoulder a mile high.

Anyone with that level of resentment should be kept away from governance.

Like Obama was so great.

Like he didn't make issues worse.

Like he couldn't even stop the obliteration of Syria, Libya, and Ukraine.

“Now we all have a free golden shower from Trump.”

..and libtards love it even when the spew is from a a syphilitic, herpetic, NSU  and ebola infected STD basket case from some African or South American jungle where there are zillions of heretofore undiscovered bacteria and viruses.

Open your mouth and welcome the migrants.

..and the best news is that your kids and /or grand-kids will share the diseased migrant joy in government schools.

I didn't even watch it.

Did I miss anything?

fleur de lis's picture

No you didn't miss anything.

Just the usual and customary Marxist rhetoric.

Divide and conquer.

We really need to see his school transcripts.

After he leaves office there is no reason for the stupid Deep State to keep them locked in a vault.

Unless maybe they are trying to hide something awful -- like crummy grades.

It doesn't really matter anymore -- the damage is done.

I watched 1 minute of it, literally.  In that minute he brought class and race into the discussion.  Immigration - we can't hate people cuz they aren't white

Class - the rich have it all (fn hypocrite)

I assume that he is a puppet so I shouldn't have any strong feelings about him but GOOD RIDDANCE.  I hope to never see his self-righteous, hypocritical, narcissistic face again.

BREATH-takingly dumb,

Fucked up really.

That is funny! Barkey owns this "fake news" thing too. The stories coming out of this regime are so fantastic and hard to believe they had to start calling everything "fake". The problem for them is...it backfired...because anybody paying attention knows they're the fakes, like your fake stock market and fake unemployment numbers.

Creative_Destruct's picture

"Market at record highs ... unemployment at record lows ... pathetic really"

94% of jobs created are part time low wage service, labor participation rate at all time lows, hollowed out economy unsustainably supported by massive public and private debt, a deeply divided country with race relations the worst in decades, the Middle East in horrible shambles, relations with the other powers and American influence and credibility in ruins...

YES FT, it IS pathetic. Even more pathetic? The delusional, naive, idealistic left, whose willful ignorance rationalizes the failures of the Megalomaniacal Narcissist in Chief.

Market highs brought to you by corporations paying top dollar buying their stock back with borrowed money rather than invest in their employees and business. The rest of the so called good stuff brought to you by Obama creating more government debt, 9 trillion going on 10, than all the presidents combined before him. Some of you were saying the debt doesn't count only the deficit and Obama was lowering it but you clammed up when Obama's deficits set new record highs the last 2 years. The only president to be at war every day of his presidency turning the ME into a shambles by illegally supporting terrorists, which Obama calls rebels, to overthrow the legally recognized government of Syria. Done everything he can to bring us to the brink of war with Russia and doubled down in recent weeks to bring us closer to the brink and using propaganda to make Trump look like a Putin stooge if he tries to improve relations with Russia. I'm sure those survivors of the thousands of innocent people killed by Obama's drones won't miss him and surely the survivors of the tens of thousands of Yemeni people killed by the invading Saudi Arabia using US supplied weapons, and not a peep out of Obama condemning the Sauds for intentionally targeting the civilians and their cities, won't miss him either. ISIS will miss him though as the billions of bucks of weapons we sold Saudi were rerouted to ISIS and others in Syria and Iraq along with Obama supplied weapons and cash.

Can't this effete, THC-soaked cumguzzler just shut the fuck up and leave already? After 20 January, there's only two times I want to hear this fucker's name during the rest of my life:

1. Associated with the phrase 'convicted of high treason'.

2. Its obituary notice.

Eight years of continuous campaigning, lies, obfuscation, high crimes and misdemeanors, wealth destruction, self-back-patting, race baiting, starting and expanding wars, murder, mayhem, bar-lowering on all fronts, theft, graft, corruption, and the ugliest fucking Wookie to ever attempt to walk upright have brought me to the point that I can't hear that piece of shit's voice without wanting to throttle some dumb fucking asslicker that still sports an 0bama 2012 sticker on their vehicle (I mean, if you were so fucking stoned, drunk, high on shrooms, race-baited into self-guilt, believed in skittle-shitting unicorns that fart rainbows, progressive, childish - but I repeat myself -  or completely fuckwitted as to vote for this Kenyan/Indonesian male/female hybrid thing twice, the least you deserve is to have the shit kicked out of you once per day for the next eight years).

Don't be rude, he's a Mulatto.  First Mulatto President ever (I think, do we know for sure?).

The Magic Mulatto speaks, reminding the deluded of what they want to believe he did but didn't do.

Hey Barrack H., I'm not afraid of people from the Middle East, just ones that want to kill non-Muslims, and other Muslims.

Do you know which is which?  Didn't think so.  STFU and go home.

That guy singing the anthem is just awful. Why is it necessary to make your voice sound pinched, like you're in the midst of a prolonged bowel movement?  It's the same nowadays at the start of many sporting events.  And leave out the improvisational shit.  It doesn't help!  Sing the notes as they were written, with a normal in-tune voice, if you can...

Yah. He is completely disconnected. It would be amusing if it wasn't so dangerous. 

This is going to be remembered as his final 'Fuck You' before everything goes haywire.
