[WATCH] Obama Out: President Obama Gives Farewell Speech To The Nation

(via AJC)

President Barack Obama gave his farewell speech last night (Jan. 10th) in his hometown of Chicago. As we all know by now, the president is definitely a great public speaker. Charisma has always been very potent within every speech he has given us over the course of these last 8 years, so his farewell speech was no different.

Obama discussed many topics in his speech, from key social points to political reflections, but the most heartfelt messages were probably the ones given to those closest to him.

To First Lady Michelle Obama:

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the South Side -- for the past 25 years, you have not only been my wife and mother of my children, you have been my best friend. You took on a role you didn't ask for and you made it your own, with grace and with grit and with style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And the new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. So you have made me proud. And you have made the country proud.

To his daughters Malia and Sasha:

Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women. You are smart and you are beautiful, but more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I've done in my life, I am most proud to be your dad.

To his right hand man, Vice President Biden:

To Joe Biden, the scrappy kid from Scranton who became Delaware's favorite son -- you were the first decision I made as a nominee, and it was the best. Not just because you have been a great Vice President, but because in the bargain, I gained a brother. And we love you and Jill like family, and your friendship has been one of the great joys of our lives.

It will be sad to see President Obama go, especially since it means Donald Trump will soon take office. Obama ended his speech with: Yes We Can. Yes We Did. Yes We Can.
