    Obama the failed president. The man can talk like a genius but cant add 2+2. He doubled the national dept, failed to secure Iraq - gave rise to ISIS, lost 50,000 us factories to china and slowest gdp and job growth under his presidency of 8 years. Now trump, talks like a utter baboon but adds 2 million jobs a month to the register, booming stock market and fastest gdp and job growth in us history while taking back jobs and factories from china making america great again. Facts Are Facts

    I'm 34. Have never voted. Always thought of voting and politics a sham (which it is), but I'll be GOD-DAMNED if this speech didn't make me feel OBLIGATED to vote, no matter the outcome. This man is a true leader. And I think a lot of us didn't realize it until now, where he was able to speak without the hinderence or weight of the office on him. GREATNESS!

    I miss President Obama everyday. But on the small bright side here, itโ€™s funny watching trump chase a rainbow. He wishes he can prove heโ€™s better than Obama as President. donny boy has no clue what heโ€™s supposed to do and he learned the hard way that being President is a BUNCH of work and thatโ€™s making him miserable and tired, no wonder he takes so many golf breaks and schedules his own whiny and whingy rallies so much too. Itโ€™s his cry for help to save his fragile ego knowing heโ€™s failing miserably as president LOL

    Talks good, nearly destroyed our country behind the scenes. Everyone focusing on Obama's words and rhetoric, you clearly don't care for the results a president produces. Obama is a genuinely nice guy, but he did nothing for this country's economy, and stand with other nations. Social fabric is the only thing people can talk good about him for, and the only thing liberals today really care about.

    Yes We Can! President Obama's words at their best. Never held back by Clinton Democrats nor Bush Republicans. The recent presidential election is more proof of such, as neither actually won such a Popularity contest. Yes We Can, are indeed Inspiring Words of getting the vote out.
    Don't vote Republican, nor Democrat, just Vote.

    obama was selected and groomed to be installed as president.. he promised sanity hope and a birght future.. but all we got was "bush tax cuts, romney care, summary executions, whistle blower persecution. a prison state.. a police state a secrecy state bank bailouts and a govt committed to serving goldman sachs and the fed" .. obama was a deceptin.. a sham.. a charlitan and a fake. a globalist traitor who couninued the clinton bush trajectory to this nations demise.

    I am a Chinese dissident writer. I like America and American history . I think, Trump is a great president in the American history. He saved American economy and he is the first American president bravely fight against the Chinese regime. So many Chinese people admire him and hope he can rescue Chinese people from totalitarian rule through the trade war and sanction against the Chinese regime. His performance and achievements is super and great even in a short period, less than a year.
    Obama is a coward and loser no matter in economic and diplomatic respects. His Iraqi withdrawal policy destroyed the peace and democracy of Iraq and brought terrorists from the world to flock into Iraq and later into already troubled Syria. Obama also destroyed the peace of Middle East. He bowed to those Iranian leaders. He gave a pass to Cuban nuclear weapon. He always pleases evil, especially he pleases the Chinese regime .
    Trump is the most brave American president who has guts to fight against the Chinese regime. Reagan had guts to fight against Soviet. But, the Chinese regime is more deceptive and evil than Soviet. It needs more courage to confront. Trump' s strategy against the Chinese regime is on the right track. So many Chinese people hope that the regime will collapse under Trump's sanction strategy.
    America is God blessed to have Trump. American people don't have any experience of living under the country without freedom but only fear. No wonder American cannot realize how lucky they are to have a great president as Trump who has guts to fight against the evil for the peace and order of the whole world.

    Not only is Obama a liar, Barrack โ€œChimpanzeeโ€ Obama has divided and crippled our country just to fulfill his twisted, delusional and personal political agenda. That agenda was the culmination of a long association with many mentors of Obama who are socialists, communists, muslims and radicals. Take an intelligent but delusional man like Bill Ayers who has refined his subversive, violent, bombing techniques into a more stylized and focused intent to implement his personal agenda that just happens to be on the same path as Obama. Obama has obviously been counseled by Ayers and the others with the game plan out of Saul Alinsky's playbook, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. During Obama's campaign, CNN and the New York Times came to Obama's aid announcing there was no connection between Obama and Ayers. In retrospect, those two media giants are now the most liberal, leftist media outlets in existence. A coincidence? Hardly. Ayers is a brilliant man with a twisted mind and all it took was a puppet and a lot of money. To the ultra powerful rich, the money was the easy part. How else could a fool like Obama win a Nobel Prize? The chaos in our country today is the result of a refined and repackaged version of Bill Ayersโ€™ agenda from decades before with Obama at the wheel. For the New World Order Elite, Obama and Ayers, itโ€™s mission accomplished. Our country is now spiraling out of control. One day, history will point to Barack "Chimpanzee" Obama as the single person who planted the seed and nurtured the movement that brought down America. After the Trump Presidency is over, that movement will seal our fate. You will be able to go online and vote for the next President on Facebook.
