Do presidents typically give ‘farewell’ addresses?

If so, how many? Because I’m getting tired of this clown going on and on about how great he is. (Warning: Auto-play vid)

Seriously, if the DNC had selected any random SNL alum and made it into a president, equipped it with a pen and a phone and said “have a ball,” would the damage have been any greater? Eight years ago the people of this country (who paid any attention to politics at all) were coalescing into two groups who laughed at one another, each group holding the other in contempt. Now we’re looking at two groups, each wanting the other dead. Hope and change, baby.

Best wishes for a long, happy and quiet retirement, Mr. Obama.

    “Best wishes for a . . . quiet retirement, Mr. Obama.”

    We should be so lucky . . .

    What Kentucky said. And add the Clintons and the Bushes. Oh lawsy how much more air, print and social media time before they all just Go..Away.

    He won’t be quiet, he will become as annoying as Carter.

  4. Mark Matis says:

    He will become FAR MORE annoying, Steve_in_DCA. After all, Carter is White, whilst the Muslim in Chief is not…

    Eisenhower’s is infamous.

    “he will become as annoying as Carter.”

    I’m thinking, annoying as Sharpton is much more likely, unfortunately.

    In retirement the Kenyan Prince, unrestrained by sufficient staff to temper his random musings, will establish beyond doubt of all but the dedicated Kool-Aid drinkers just how great a mistake it was to elevate him from Chicago’s street-level ward politics.

    Since he’s clearly not smart enough to recognize any of that – think insufferably long SNL skit – , and the media’s rabid hatred of anything even hinting of being slightly to the right of Teddy Kennedy, we’ll be treated to his diatribes on the front page and airwaves frequently. (And, if you think that’s bad, consider the multi-week state funeral our children and grandchildren will suffer through whenever he finally expires and the perpetual adulation the Bubble People will inflict upon them for decades afterward.)

    :) I guess that just shows how often I listen to presidential speeches.

To the stake with the heretic!
