The last days in office for barack obama

In an act of departure, U.S. President Barack Obama s made a farewell address in Chicago. Being an eloquent speaker, he was endowed with combining many performances and messages to create a memorable moment. For Mr. Barack Obama, there was simplicity about being in power and there was also a similar simplicity about his giving up power. He humorously referred to his lame duck status. He made it clear that barring the nationhood and empire, the real hero of democracy in America is the common citizen. His relationship with a common American citizen had ingredients of humility and the homeliness of a conversation, not the charismatic power or demagogic distance. The American dream has moved refugees, migrants, pioneers, women, and slaves to organize. While recognizing that democracy is not a flawless machine, it is an important component that makes the whole system run. A democracy creates solidarity through difference. He also recognized the dangers to democracy in terrorism and race. Fighting xenophobia, he appealed for people s empathy in understanding the fellow citizens. There is such a shared pride, authenticity and sincerity in the achievements of the Obama presidency era that it is difficult to conceptualize how this same American society elected someone such as Donald Trump to become president and run the country. At this juncture of history, it has become a post-truth society.
