Alexander Azadgan - A Critique of President Obama's Farewell Speech

16.01.2017

Before I commence, I would like to emphatically and categorically state that the critique that I am about to give is not a personal attack on Mr. Obama's personality whatsoever. I think he is a gentle, loving, family man and a very intelligent academician as well as a charismatic and deeply inspiring human being. My critique solely focuses on his public persona and his domestic and foreign policies during the past eight years. However, I will be very stern and objective in my critical analysis.
