  1. Graduate from college debt free? Seriously? Why didn't he do that in the 8 years he was in office. What a liar he is.

  2. Let’s take a look at what we’re talking about. Every effective money laundering operation needs an organization to run their funds through, turning dirty money into clean, legitimate funds. For the Democratic Party, that organization is Planned Parenthood.

    Recently, Planned Parenthood announced that it would be funding a comprehensive new initiative to unseat Republicans at both the state and federal level. This new initiative has been described as the “largest ground game in history” and will include door-knocking, advertising, and more on the Democratic Party’s behalf.

    But Planned Parenthood isn’t stopping there – they also intend to continue with the $20 million dollar political advertising campaign that they launched a few months ago as well.

    If Planned Parenthood was an entirely private-funded organization, this type of political activism wouldn’t be as much of a problem. However, Planned Parenthood is not an entirely private-funded organization. In fact, they receive $500 million a year in taxpayer money.

    So let’s recap: The Democratic Party fights to keep taxes high and keep Planned Parenthood federally funded. In turn, Planned Parenthood takes the tax dollars that they receive and spends massive portions of the money campaigning on behalf of Democratic candidates all over the country.

  3. I was planning to just listen to 10 minutes of another speech. This is the second speech I sat through.. for a second it felt like we were back to the safety and security of when he was president. What an admirable American.

  4. This dude needs to be our forever presidential consultant.. who ever gets into office from here on out should keep him on speed dial. 🙌✊️💯🇺🇸

  5. As a citizen may I have more than an hour of all the major network's time? If not, why not? After all according this liar giving a racially motivated speech he stated we are all just citizens including him, who is not speaking as a "former president." Again just as he did as a two term president he lies yet again, just about any chance he gets. He likes the word 'discrimination.' He is right now speaking with "DISCRIMINATION" against a sitting president. He is the first president to be involved in any way with the election of his successor. He has NO "principles." It's just a word to him. If you can remember his campaign speech, tell me just one promise he made that he kept. JUST ONE!!!! Eloquence? HA! grace, be serious. generosity, yes to himself and hIs family. $19,000,000 vacations? $20,000 gowns for his wife? Oh, he's generous ok! He is easily the worst president we have ever suffered. Stop giving him any more of our time. He is powerless and he really misses it, otherwise he wouldn't be there! He is lying again about his record. He Inherited a 5 trillion dollar nationaL DEBT FROM Bush. When he left office the national debt was just under 20 TRILLION DOLLARS. He did not create one single job. When he left office there were fewer black people working than ever before in history. Oh yes we also have not had our first "black president." His mother was white, his father was black. Look it up, he IS a Mullato. 1/2 white, 1/2 black. So let's keep looking, we just might find an honest democrat.

  6. It's amazing how a practiced liar can make so many people believe him and actually trust him. Try and remember, this piece of garbage never kept a single campaign promise in his entire eight years.

  7. There are many reasons for tRUMP to be jealous of President Obama but, I think what causes him the most bitterness, is because President Obama has some thing that he will never have..the love and respect of a good woman.

  8. Straw man arguments, Generalizations, and double talk……that will be Obama's legacy.
    Nobody else can say less in 1 hour than Mr Obama.

  9. Can Obama give this speech everywhere? Best part (I'm paraphrasing). "When people are cynical about government and change, the more likely the current authority will stay in power." This is sooo true. Most of the people that complain about the government don't vote…and they wonder why nothing changes. 46% of Millennials voted during the 2016 election (I am one of them). Then most millennials complain that Donald Trump is president. Seriously there is hope! VOTE! We can do it! 🙂

  10. This world of ours (not just the USA; I'm from Europe) need such leadership as demonstrated (again) by former President Obama. His words, thoughts and deeds demonstrate that we can turn this world into a much better one. No hate talk, but an invitation for peaceful cohabitation. Please, US voters demonstrate your wisdom and make the right choice. It not only impacts your country……….. it effect the entire world!

  11. With environmental changes on the cusps of the planet, & ourselves, evangelicals still should be interested in the advance for getting RID of corruption at all political levels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thats not (NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT )selling it short!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PRAY for ME? ( Y so few viewings……………………………………………………..?) AMERICA CAN DO BETTER AMERICA. This is a truly historic speech!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank You Barack Obama, you're my role model and I like you, and have loved you too.

  12. I am a Malaysian, and I have loved Obama’s speeches for the clarity, eloquence and vision. I hope Americans listen to him and stand up as real defenders of humanity.

  13. What a man! What a difference with current POTUS ! As French, I wonder how USA was able to make a such big step back ?
    I wish for the world and for american citizen that you will be able to recover very quickly from the plague that is slowy distroying the biggest democratie in the world.
