The never-ending goodbye

Has he brought those Greek columns back yet?

No, You Didn’t
Historians will have a great deal to say about Obama’s presidency, and we expect their judgment to be severe.
"The president is leaving the same way he came in: with a great deal of vague and fruity talk about “hope and change,” very little of genuine interest, and an undercurrent of bitterness communicating his unshakeable belief that the American people just simply are not up to the task of fully appreciating History’s unique gift to them in the person of Barack Obama." . . .

Obama's Farewell: 'Post-Racial America' Was 'Never Realistic'
. . . "House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) swiftly issued a statement declaring Obama "belongs among the greatest presidents in American history."
“ 'President Obama and Vice President Biden have earned their place in the pantheon of American democracy," Pelosi said. "Every American can be proud of the leadership and dignity the Obamas and the Bidens brought to the White House.' " . . .

Goodbye, Obama. "The outgoing president leaves a loaded gun in the Oval Office."  . . . "As Obama's tenure comes to a close, it's clear his has been a presidency of enormous consequence. But his most lasting legacy will be one few—perhaps least of all Obama himself—expected. He will leave to his successor a presidency even more powerful and dangerous than the one he inherited from Bush." . . . 

Obama Refers To Himself 75 Times In Farewell Address
"Obama heavily promoted the speech, penning a blog post about it and appearing in a promotional video in the days leading up to the address. (RELATED: Obama Mentions Himself 45 Times During Memorial Speech For Dallas Officers) 
"Obama said “I” 33 times during the speech, “my” 20 times, “me” 10 times, and “I’m” or “I’ve” 12 times.
"The president made a habit of focusing large chunks of his speeches on himself during his eight years in office." . . . Read more.

Obama's 'farewell' speech proves he is out of touch with reality
. . . "Exit question:
"1) It is customary to name something important after a departing two-term president.  What do you think would best bear the Obama name, a prison, a nuclear waste repository, a mosque, a disease, a violent crime, or something else?"
Obama's decency? I do not see decency; I see vindictiveness as when he spent millions blocking off open-air memorials such as the Mall in Washington DC and even roadside viewing spots for sights for Mt. Rushmore, and in his orders to the National Park Service to "make it hurt".
I see cowardice in foreign relations, especially when words of his support for the Iranian Green Revolution could have helped a peaceful takeover from the murderous ayatollahs, who rejoiced when Obama stabbed our ally Israel in the back. How sad that Obama's contempt for Western history kept him from seeing the similarity between His treatment for Israel is so like the Democracy's treatment of 1938 Czechoslovakia.
How can you not see all that? The Tunnel Dweller
