CNN - Politics: Reports on President Obama's Farewell Address to the Nation, " Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter all used the Oval Office -- a setting Obama has long spurned for formal remarks. George H.W. Bush traveled outside of Washington to West Point for a departing address after failing to secure a second term, though he didn't actually bill it as a farewell. "
Lets Get Real:
Another ego driven move by President Obama, he has rarely used the Oval Office, he thinks he is somehow special and different from other Presidents, it is just a waste of Government money, to fly to and back from Chicago just to make a speech, it pretty much gives you the mind process of an elite liberal, if had been a Republican the green groups would be in full battle cry, nothing from them so far. The Obama years have been a disaster on the domestic and international front, ObamaCare has been a disaster, while on the international front the US had lead from very far behind. The 2nd Obama term saw the birth of Daesh, the return of the US to Iraq, the sending of Special Forces to Syria, the collapse of Libya and the death of the Middle East Peace process. One can only hope that President Trump has learnt from these mistakes, and follows the JFK and Reagan path when it comes to domestic and foreign policy. On the domestic side it will be tax cuts and on the international front it will be peace through strength.
