Barack Obama in a press conference announces his concerns for America’s future in a well thought out, meaningful, and wise speech.
Barack Obama goes on to explain, “I think foreign observers are troubled by some of the rhetoric that has taken place in these Republican primaries and debates.”
When asked about he thoughts on Trump, he says, “I don’t think it is [the trouble] restricted by the weight of Mr.Trump. I find it interesting that everyone is focused on Trump, as he simply says in more interesting ways what the other candidates are saying.”
He addresses his concern on Climate Change when saying, “They are all denying climate change, which is troubling to the international community since the science is unequivocal. Other countries know that if influential countries like us don’t act on such a crucial issue, then no one will.”
He expresses his hope in the American people when he says, “I have a lot of faith in the American people and I believe that they recognize that being president is a serious job. ”
Obama explains what is needed for a president when he says, “It’s not hosting a television show,or a reality show. It’s not promotion, it’s not marketing, it’s hard, and…it’s not about doing whatever will get you on the news on a given day, and sometimes it requires you to make the unpopular, tough decisions. However, as you get closer, reality has a way of intruding in and these are the people I have faith in.”
This was a noble speech from Barack Obama, which may demonstrate how the media can be so influential in decision making. The media almost forces us to conform to what’s popular regardless of whether or not what we are hearing is truly rational. Truly wise words Mr. President.
