There are many things to point out about Obama’s speech at the Democrat National Convention, but one thing that stood out quite a bit was how it ended. Let’s take a moment to compare how Obama ended his speech with how Donald Trump ended his acceptance speech.
For, let’s see what Obama said:
“Time and again, you’ve picked me up. I hope, sometimes, I picked you up, too. Tonight, I ask you to do for Hillary Clinton what you did for me. I ask you to carry her the same way you carried me.”
“Because you’re who I was talking about 12 years ago, when I talked about hope — it’s been you who’ve fueled my dogged faith in our future, even when the odds are great; even when the road is long,” he said. “Hope in the face of difficulty; hope in the face of uncertainty; the audacity of hope!
“America, you have vindicated that hope these past eight years. And now I’m ready to pass the baton and do my part as a private citizen. This year, in this election, I’m asking you to join me — to reject cynicism, reject fear, to summon what’s best in us; to elect Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States, and show the world we still believe in the promise of this great nation.
“Thank you for this incredible journey. Let’s keep it going,” he concluded. “God bless the United States of America.”
It’s amazing how he made everything about himself, which is nothing but expected from the commander-in-chief at this point.
Meanwhile, let’s take a look at how Trump ended his speech.
“I’m asking for your support tonight so that I can be your champion in the White House. My opponent asks her supporters to recite a three-word loyalty pledge. It reads: ‘I’m With Her,’” he said.
“I choose to recite a different pledge. My pledge reads: ‘I’M WITH YOU — THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.’
“I am your voice. So to every parent who dreams for their child, and every child who dreams for their future, I say these words to you tonight: I’m with you, I will fight for you, and I will win for you. To all Americans tonight, in all of our cities and in all of our towns, I make this promise: we will make America strong again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again, and we will make America great again. God bless you, and good night.”
It is amazing that for someone who is supposed to be an incurable egoist, Donald Trump seems to have talked a lot more about the American people than Barack Obama did.
This is the nature of the Obama administration. It is all about them, even when it is not. That’s what the media doesn’t report and that is why Donald Trump will come out on top this November.
