I don’t really like Obama, but thats one speech i would shed tears over. “We worship an awesome god in the states. There is no LIBERAL states of america, There is no CONSERVATIVE states of america, there is the UNITED states of america.” You must admit. That is one beautiful line.

So white people could say he's just like up? You're racist. Judge a man by the content of his character not his color

It was George W. Bush administration the greatest contributor to Obama's election.

Obama was a brilliant orator and emotional motivator, his charisma was beyond most American speakers not just presedential, that being said his economic mismanagement is tragic and embarrising, he doubled the national debt to 20 trillion and caused untold suffering similar to Bush 2 now thats bizare, his policies led to the march of Trump and thats a strange indictment of the US presidents since Bush 1

This is what true character looks like
