    As long as the moving van with them in it pulls out of the White House on time, I don't care

    I suppose his message of being less partisan just completely went over your heads?

    And no, just because I am a Democrat does not mean I'm rooting for Trump to fail. Truthfully, I do not think he will really be better OR worse than any of the presidents we have had in recent history. I'm taking a wait-and-see approach until either he does something really good, or really bad.

    Are politics really war? If they are, then things are only going to get worse, MUCH worse. Especially if the posts of many on these forums (both Democrat and Republican, Liberal and Conservative) are any indication.

    You guys going to hate right to the last microsecond. How sad for you. How sad for our country. Just temember that your hatred will eat at you as much as it eats at those you hate but remember that your hatred is within you so your hatred will eat at you more.

    Raw hatred says more about those who hate than thise who the hater hates.

    Obama was a liberal fantasy....A 'clean' black man...As Joe Biden said:

    "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."

    Ha Ha Ha!!!!!

    Ya, Joe sure seems to be exhibiting some raw hatred....for EVERY OTHER PROMINENT BLACK. I guess (according to Ol' Joe) Jessie and Al aren't really that 'clean' or 'articulate.'

    Correct, and as president Barack Obama was all image and no substance. I think that it's what the Left actually liked about the man that they worshiped for eight straight years.

    Obama buttressed his case with a battery of statistics as he touts the accomplishments of his two terms, which among other things includes a record 75 straight months of job growth, more than 15 million new jobs, a long-awaited rise in hourly wages — and the removal of Osama Bin Laden as a threat to America.

    Some image.

    19 million citizens have given up looking for work under Obamanomics. Obama's statistics are . . . lies.

    Please show how the ue numbers were changed from the last 40 yrs.
    I understand you have to hate, but can you put it aside?
    Did obama cause all those job loss? In your HONEST opinion.

    How many lost jobs in the big recession? Do you know?

    BTW - I expect crickets.

    He'd make a good Monarch of the current British variety. Does pageantry, speeches and good will tours but no real governing. Eh, maybe that's what Biden meant at the vote confirmation joint session of Congress when he uttered: "Long live the Queen".

    Cheers

    He will bid goodbye towards the multitude who put him and Trump into Office.
    But I'm sure the table he will leave behind is not as messy compared when Bush did the same before.

    He did not build it if you recall his own words.

    Bush put Osama into checkmate. But even though I watched another of his speeches today, he keeps talking as if he, the narcissist Obama built it. But none of the rest of us get credit for building it.

    - - - Updated - - -

    But for Bush, Obama had next to no chance on how to learn how to be president. Bush saved his hide.

    Somehow, I just don't think your opinion matters.
    75 month of job growth. A record. In the history of job growth.

    Edit - 8 yrs later. W bush, still the worst in history. Set USA back, well, 8 yrs. Record job growth and no new wars killing our young men and women for daddy.

    Bush already scorched it before he left.

    It was a decent speech but I think he could have expanded about being open to ideas and national unity. The joke about not arguing with people over the Internet was funny, and he did say something about how we tend to live in bubbles and not listen to the other side, but I don't think he really tied that down. A statement about "liberals and conservatives must continue to have dialogues and be willing to listen to one another," would have sufficed, because we know from most college campuses to the Breitbart comment section, things tend to get hive-minded at times.

    I also found it disturbing he said we haven't had a foreign attack on our soil. A very arguable point to say the least considering the various terrorist attacks(Boston, Fort Hood, San Bernardino), but it was obvious he was trying to keep things positive.

    Well he is not Superman who could deal the mountainous problems left behind,
    ironically the reason why he won the presidency in the first place.
