    Very powerful moment. Imagine all the intel he's received over his 8 years, leaders he's met and conflicts he's had to broker. In one moment the entire world is just lifted off his shoulders... and suddenly none of it is his problem.

    Just watching this made me think of how long obama has been in my life wich is pretty much more than half of it. I still cant believe at this moment his term of being president was pretty much over and now hes gonna rarely be on social media for the rest of our lives. Even tho he didnt make the best choices or do stuff he was suppose to i believe he loved his country and thats all that matters. I wish the best for him and his family in their new lives

      @duanecrump crump Get some meds for whatever the hell was wrong with you yet? By the way, genius; Biden WAS inaugurated. How many thousands of other things have you been wrong about in the last week/month/year? Typical mentality of one of the lemmings that would follow and amoral racist animal who was selling his country out to the Russians. There's a reason Trump polls so well with the uneducated.

      To me to have had two terms, you are a great president and even with all the opposition that you had you did the best, the very best that you could. I thank you for your love of the country, your humor your finesse and for your wife the same. We've never had to my knowledge a people's president and first lady who are down to earth and relax and didn't act snobbish. I wish you could have had a third term, God bless you your wife and children and may the Lord keep you always.

    He had a tough job, and the fact he had to follow on after Bush, it really was a challenge for him. First back president, and the state the country was in after Bush, I have respect for him. No matter what he did, it certainly made the country better than it was 8 years ago. The haters just seem to have no respect for that.

    Goodbye Mr. Barack Obama.
    I am an immigrant from Mexico. Came here over a decade ago right before you became the president of the US. I want thank you so very much for your time and effort. Thank you because I never felt like you didn't care about us when you were in charge of the nation at the white house. Thank you for being nice and respectful to all of us. I learned so much from you. Despite, of what some people say, there are many of us who admire you and appreciate your efforts.
    Thank you for being such a kind president.
    We hope that are new president treats everyone with dignity just like you did.
    Despite, of what many people say about Mr. Trump. I think he will also be a good president. I do not believe he hates us immigrants like many peeps claim. He has a different personality than you, but he is our president now and he deserves all the respect!

    Obama studied Law at Harvard, Worked as a civil rights attorney, Taught at the University of Chicago Law School, has had more than fifteen years of experience in politics, and worked twice as hard to get where he was just because of the color of his skin. May i say, that it has been beautiful to see someone from a race that was treated like crap fifty years ago run a country. The first black President. Someone who stayed humble throughout his career.
    Many of you are disrespecting him without noticing the years and hardwork he has put in. Just saying he didn't start out with everything given to him, such as "a small loan of a million dollars." He worked his way up. That takes a lot of courage and work.

    This scene has always confused me. He was moving 1.6 miles down the block... He could have walked home. He had pictured himself walking to the white house every morning to give Hilary her daily instructions. Instead, President Trump has Marine One purposely fly low over Obama's house every time it leaves the white house. Now that's funny

I may not have supported Obama on a lot of his issue's, but I can respect a man who holds dignity in his people and country. Obama in my honest opinion, you were a good president to this country.
