    Don't give a damn what any of the rest of you

    think, I’m going to miss them, the Obama’s.

    Spare me your lists of atrocities they have committed as I don’t give a shit at this point in time.

    Godspeed Mr. President!

      1. Me too. The Presidency is a glass house, the Obamas did well

      Trump has me utterly depressed. The comparisons…

      Awful. Just awful.

        27. When Trump was saying he had proof that Obama was from Kenya . . .

        . . . I didn’t think the MSM would take it seriously and interview that asshat. But, they did.

        Now that there are stories about Trump being peed on by prostitutes in Russia coming out, I hope Trump realizes he can’t stop being called a motherfucking asshole.

        82. Wow this is why we are bombing more women and children

        why we have had more coups, This is why we can now kill americans with out trial. This is why we have crappy healthcare.

        Democrats will do just what republicans do, look the other way when their elected officials commit war crimes! Crime against their own citizens seems nothing has changed

      I really wonder why someone with such tremendous political instincts would back such a loser in Hillary.

      We need to fight like hell and recruit like crazy for the fight in 2018 and 2020.

      But first the losers need to get out of the way.

          75. I feel no sense of loss when I think of the beautiful, innocent children droned

          to bits ordered by the man I had hoped would end those war crimes. I think more of the grieving mothers who had to pick up the pieces of their babies, and I wonder, why do Americans not even care about the suffering of people who are the victims of our glamorous leaders?

          Sorry, but I hear the cries of the victims of our criminal invasions, and I am not really concerned about the privileged ‘leaders’ who order their deaths. Personally I don’t know how they sleep at night.

      5. I don't understand how we ended up with five more wars in eight years.

      I think we deserve answers to that question. I am really tired of people dying because whoever is running this country has no respect for life. I am sick of the tax dollars I am forced to pay being  spent for such atrocities so that some fat cats can fill their bank accounts while polluting this planet.

            76. It's more than that, we don't care about the murder of innocent BROWN people

            in far off lands.  Some of us do, but not enough, sadly.  I swore back when Bush was doing and ‘progressives’ pretended to care because it was Bush, that I would never ‘get used to it’. It’s a fight to keep the suffering of the mothers and fathers whose children, I saw the photos and will never forget them, read the descriptions of the results of the drones, by eye witnesses and wonder how people who appear to be so ‘likable’ can commit such crimes.

        It is great he has a decent public temperament and a few progressive values. But what his administration has done war wise is abomidable. His administration is leaving the world in terrible shape and on the edge of annihilation.

          to expand spying on us citizens

          being best buddies with ice and arresting , holding,and sending more refugees back to SOS ruined states.

          going after more whistleblowers than any other president.

            77. Yes, even Bush stopped short of ordering the killing of American citizens. It's

            hard for me to understand how people can dismiss all this. The same people who overlook what Obama has done to untold numbers of innocent people, were OUTRAGED when Bush was doing it.

            I have to admit that the real rulers of this country knew what they were doing when the backed Obama.  I find it even more frightening frankly. At least Cheney LOOKED evil. It’s the handsome, smiling, beautiful people I find the most scary. They fooled me, for a while.

      20. I'm just disgusted

      In the early part of his presidency, he completely blew his opportunity to use the bully pulpit when he had it. Instead, he tried to use it ( in his later years ) to push ( yet another ) bad trade agreement. Bad on par with the one he ran against during his first campaign.

      If he governed the way he ran…Hell, if he tried to govern on what he ran, that’d be different. We all knew what actually happened.

      40. You afraid the wars and the bombs will decrease in number?

      You know what I miss?  What Obama SAID he was going to do.  Yeah, all lies, but hey!  Michelle’s arms look great!

      You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

      41. BHO – One Of The Greatest Disapointments In My Life Time

      Sadly, I swallowed Hope And Change like a good lemming.

      58. Well, you do whatever helps you sleep at night.

      Obama is just as much at fault for getting us Donald Trump as Hillary Clinton and the DLC was. He could have done his job, changed the face of politics as usual, but he sold out for money.

      God speed? He’s got all the god he needs:  money and a cushy job lined up somewhere to make him even more.

      My hope is that the wife and kiddies don’t end up starting a family ruling gig. I don’t want another Clinton, Bush nor Obama anywhere near our government.

      A pox on all their houses.

      60. Compared to Trump?

      Of course I’ll miss him.

      But not really. After his farewell speech I’m done with him.

      61. I tend to agree with Clare Daly.

        67. Ahead of the curve on calling out the arming of terrorists

        Your video prompted me to google her.

        At the 2016 general election, she stood as an Independents 4 Change candidate in the Dublin Fingal constituency, and was elected.

        Excellent! :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clare_Daly

        85. No he was most likely

        worse because as you can see here his followers the democrats could never bring it upon themselves selves to criticize him. No barry was playing 16 dementional chess when he got in bed with big Pharma and the insurance industry’s. Obama new what he was doing when he did nothing for weeks as bp killed the gulf. They were sure he would get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan and said nothing while he got us into Lybia, Syria, Somalia, While he facilitated coups in honduras,and the Ukraine. They were silent! They were silent about his kicking more refugees out of this country than any other president in our short history. They were silent when he opened up this country and the world to massive fracking and pipelines, thinking it was so awesome that he stopped the xl. They were silent when he gave the middle finger to labor the labor bosses went so far as to support the queen wannabe. They were silent when he gave the finger to the tribes.

        When they were not silent on TPP he just gave the the big middle. No,Romney would not have gotten away with the crap that obama did. Trump may, again thanks to the complete failure of Obama, who in his 8 years has managed to lose more and more seats everywhere to the republicans!

      92. Oh that Colgate smile! And a positively dreamy speaker!

      He needs to go to the Hague with the Bushes and Clintons.
