Eight years ago tomorrow, President Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States. Under his guidance, the country recovered from the recession. More protections for LGBT+ people were passed, and “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was repealed. Under President Obama, the United States made green energy gains. Unemployment is down. It’s been a great eight years, from the creation of the Affordable Care Act to the end of the War in Iraq.
To quote President Obama’s Farewell Addresss:
“Yes we can. Yes we did. Yes we can.”
It’s been a great eight years under the guidance of a great president. Thank you, President Obama.
