Barack Obama Deliver his Farewell Address to Americans ; Obama Bids America Farewell – The out going president Barack Obama is set to deliver his farewell Address today in Chicago, ten days ahead of the handover to the president elect Trump. The same man Obama has described polar opposite.
Chicago is Obama’s adopted hometown, where he met his wife, Michelle and was elected an Illinois senator.
His Farewell speech will will be a parting shot to say “thank you” to Americans and to offer some thoughts on where “we will all go from here”.
Remembering Obama’s invitation on January 2 to America to attend a ceremony, Obama had written:
“In 1796, as George Washington set the precedent for a peaceful, democratic transfer of power he also set a precedent by penning a farewell address to the American people. And over the 220 years since, many American presidents have followed his lead.
“On Tuesday, January 10, I’ll go home to Chicago to say my grateful farewell to you, even if you can’t be there in person.
“I’m just beginning to write my remarks. But I’m thinking about them as a chance to say thank you for this amazing journey, to celebrate the ways you’ve changed this country for the better these past eight years and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here.
“Since 2009, we’ve faced our fair share of challenges, and come through them stronger.
“That’s because we have never let go of a belief that has guided us ever since our founding — our conviction that, together, we can change this country for the better.
“So I hope you’ll join me one last time. Because, for me, it’s always been about you,” the outgoing two-term president said in his invitation.
The white house has said that the outgoing president took the country out from one of the worst economic recessions. Furthermore the white house added that he acted aggressively to arrest the crisis, restart growth and job creation, rebuild our economy on a stronger long-term foundation, and expand opportunity for all Americans.
‘Yes, we can’. these were the three words President Obama spoke for the first time as a candidate in January 2008 in New Hampshire. And After eight years, this words remains a guiding principal that continues to inspire Americans across the country to come together and find their own ways to move the country forward.
