I'm going to miss this guy

Dark days ahead, but what a cracking farewell speech from Obama and yes, I know speech writers might have been involved, but it rang true to me. Four more years? If only. Sad

Re: I'm going to miss this guy

The long term reputation of someone is often coloured by how good their successor turns out to be. Going by that I suspect Obama will end up being regarded as the best President ever.

Trump is going to have to be far worse than everyone expects then.

Suspect? He already is.

No scandals. No family scandals. No affairs...

Nothing but a big smile and determination to try and do the right thing. You only suspect it now? It was obvious years ago..

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

@PeterLoftus

You'd take that from some right wing news site blogger and lay it on his shoulders? Jeepers. 

"Politically I'm slightly to the right of Genghis Khan......"

Well at least you are being honest.

@Minivanman take it from where you will facts is facts https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/nov/08/us-congress-election-results-senate-house-democrats-...

 

Obama is a quota man and having got the first president of colour the Democrats thought they would go one better and have the first woman. I hope this is the end of Identity Politics and we can get back to having the best person and not trying to meet a certain demographic

Oh, I thought it four years ago. I meant the overall popular opinion will come to regard him as the best ever.
